If you were hoping to place an order for frozen In-N-Out burgers today, they’re already sold out (too bad?). Delivery app OrderAhead, which is making its Washington debut with the promise to deliver double-doubles to DC and Arlington residents, says the microwaveable patties are already sold out as of 9:10 this morning.
We were pretty skeptical about the quality of a reheated burger, especially with the disclaimer that “OrderAhead bears no liability for any damages caused by improper handling.” Still, you have to give them props for the publicity stunt. In-N-Out makes one of the most craveable burgers out there—especially because we on the East Coast can’t have it—and any Washingtonian hoping for a taste of animal sauce had to download the app.
We’re not left completely empty-handed: An $18 delivery credit was awarded to anyone who signed up for the promo, which can go toward around 100 restaurants in the area, including Shake Shack. We’re guessing a fresh Shackburger tastes better than a frozen double-double any day.
