Last year In-N-Out popped up at Ponsonby Central, literally. There was no pre-warning and everything sold out within a few hours. This year we were more prepared. We were at Nugent Street at 11am, got our wristband and came back to collect the burger 2 hours later.
The burger buns were soft, salad toppings were generous, and there was also some grilled onion with our Double Double in Animal Style. The patties were a decent size and covered in cheese but there wasn’t a great deal of flavour. This might be because we had high expectations as a result of the continuous hype. Most people that are In-N-Out fans go on about the french fries and milkshakes, both of which were MIA at the little Newmarket pop-up (say, what). So until we make it over to the States it’s hard to say whether we are fans or not, for now, Better Burger is the one for simple and cheap burger meals.
