According to the Huffington Post, Ari Solomon is calling for the Southern California institution to offer veggie burgers for vegetarians who miss eating at In-N-Out, in a Change.org petition. According to Solomon, "the petition is in response to a hidden camera investigation that revealed an In-N-Out beef supplier was abusing cows." What do you think? Should In-N-Out mess with their 'simple' menu to satisfy vegetarians?

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM reports:
It seems almost sacrosanct to mess with In-N-Out's long-established (secret) menu, but one Angeleno is fighting for reform.

    Here is a thought for you food nazis.....IF being a vegi-Whatever is sooo bloody wonderful that you feel you need to ruin the appetites of regular people.....has any of your Mentally Enfeebled tofu eaters thought about opening your OWN diner featuring ALL meatless dishes including veggie burgers.....I want to see how many weeks such an enterprise would stay open

    They also have locations in other states, such as Texas. Not as vegan... ;)

    No, they should never be in business again. In-N-Out were deceitful about their source of cattle meat, why trust them again.? My belief is, In-N-Out management knew what was going on with those dairy cows. In-N-Out should be made an example of for other fast food chains, restaurants and supermarkets.

    To those that voted yes - are you stupid? In=n-Out is the only fast food restaurant I know of that does one thing and does it well. All the rest constantly add new things to their menu sacrificing quality in the process.

    If a veggie burger, why not chicken? Why not salads? Why not steaks? Why not pasta, pizza and burriotos? The reason they are good is because they have picked one thing and do it well. That is also why McDonalds sucks ass. They try to do everything and suck at ALL of it.

    Why the hell would they? They have a reputation to keep up and a veggie burger sure isn't going to help that. Get a grip. If you want a freakin' veggie burger, go to a health food restaurant.

    Half the reason I like the place, is THE PRICE. The more you add, the higher the price for everything. IF YOU NEED A VEGGIE BURGER, OPEN YOUR OWN PLACE.

    1. This is only a petition, some feel that In-N-Out will be forced to provide veggie burgers which is not true - they may choose to do so or not.
    2. They would gain new customers who now cannot eat at In-N-Out since the only burger choice is meat.

    So don't go there! No one is making them go there. Go some place they think the food is better for them. Jeesh!

    Manwe was not saying in-n-out should HAVE to provide a veggie burger. just that it might open up a new customer base for the restaurant.

    Thank you. That's exactly it. If there are many on the petition who meet their demographics (other than being a meat eater) and they can fit it into their restaurants, they will provide them. If they can't, they won't. Burger King is one fast food chain which already provides veggie burgers, but I don't like them.

    The point that was made wasn't about catering to vegetarians for the vegetarians' sake. In this case, In-N-Out could possibly cash in and make more money. This would be good for the chain, regardless of what customers want.

    honestly though...it would have to be a LOT of customers for this to happen and even then how many of those folks will actually buy a veggie burger? Petitions are often signed by folks who have know idea or don't really care..they sign becuase a friend asks them to. you would be lucky if 5% of the petitioners would actually order one veggie burger after they finally got them in.

    I agree. It has to make sense.

    the problem was the way the question was presented. "should" sounds very pushy and in the land of freedom and choice...no one "should" do anything...but you are allowed to suggest nicely.
    some folks here went to the extreme and thought this was some kind of food nazi-ism. it never was that.....

    Some of the people answering in the negative seem to forget that vegetarians spend money just as the rest of us meat eaters.

    I don't trust fast-food joints to provide a real Vegetarian product. There will be controversy surrounding the cheese and if there's a grill used exclusively for the veggie burger (you can't put the veggie burger on the same grill all the regular burger's were on). If they want to, fine. But if you're smart and Vegetarian, you won't buy it :/
  • Cherryg... Omni 2012/09/01 20:31:11

    That depends: If you're pursing the vegetarian option for health or spiritual (e.g. kosher or jain food) reasons that makes sense but for those who are humanitarian towards animals, I think the primary point would be to A: avoid supporting the meat industry by avoiding meat patty sales and B: stimulate the market for vegetarian products....

    Also, the word vegetarian can be a bit of a misnomer at times, given that there are "octo-lavo" vegetarians who eat cheese and meat, who might appreciate such an option regardless...
  • Omni Cherryg... 2012/09/01 21:42:51 (edited)

    I'd think a Vegetarian who doesn't eat meat for ethical reasons (e.g, me) would be disgusted if there was actual meat residue on the veggie patty.

    Also, commercial cheese possesses rennet (the lining of calf stomach -- directly related to the veal industry). We're talking about a fast-food industry here. I have my doubts on whether or not they're using rennet-free cheese.

    It is a burger joint. If you go there expect MEAT.
    If you don't want meat go somewhere else!
