Meatless Monday at In-N-Out? Why? Why? For Crap's Sake Why?

Categories: Meatless Monday

It's OK, those are made of not cows.
Let's get hypothetical. You've subscribed to Meatless Monday and have been trucking along just fine for a few weeks. Given the somewhat limited culinary scope of vegetarian dining in the mass market, your Mondays have been subject to quite a few sandwiches featuring grilled zucchini. And probably a lot of cheese. And then maybe you "Meh" your way all the way back to your desk. Meatless Monday is tough.

I'm guessing your Tuesdays and maybe even your Wednesdays are littered with grease-stained napkins and a burger so porny you guiltily avoid mirrors for the rest of your shameful yet delicious day. Mine are.

But imagine even the most formidable of burger heavyweights giving in to the demands of the permanently meatless. To the burger purist this might be less than savory news, but it may soon be a reality at In-N-Out, a place where Meatless Monday logistically falls flat on its pale face.

The now vegan Ari Solomon took to Change.org recently to demand vegetarian and vegan options at the iconic California chain. With more than 6,000 supporters thus far, the petition is quickly gaining attention from The Huffington Post and various PR wires. Also driving his petition is In-N-Out's declaration that they will stop all purchasing from Central Valley Meat after ABC World News Tonight reported the supplier's mistreatment of their cattle.

Meaning? "Animal style" could soon get you a nasty look from the vegan next to you in line at In-N-Out, a place once reserved for voracious consumers of cow flesh to nosh their burgers without fear of silent judgment.

The real question is: Could you do it? Could you stand in line on a Monday at In-N-Out, surrounded by the sizzle of so many soon-to-be delicious burgers, and order a veggie burger? Will this extend to other chains? Will some brazen Texan demand the same of our precious Whataburger?

Are we the only ones who have entire inner monologues in the precious moments before burger o'clock?

Open up your own *#&$^% restaurants Vegans.  BTW, Fudrucker's has Vegan Burgers.

God forbid the cow you eat wasn't tortured before being served up. Wouldn't that be a travesty.

I hope he sits next to me too, so I can eat my burger in the most vulgar manner possible.

If you were "surrounded by the sizzle of so many soon-to-be delicious burgers" you wouldn't be at In-N-Out.   Pow!

Vegans just crave attention?  And moody?!  I'd be pissed iff'n I was weakened from eating grass and vegetables all day.

 @G_David  @Mervis Air fries, they're air fries.  They have absolutely no taste what so ever!  If anyone is going vegetarian, In-N-Out is the place to start.  Hard to eat that burger.

 @joearpaio   I prefer freshly doused fires, love freshly cut fries but In-N-Out does not have real fries.
