In addition to ordering regular nacho fries, you can also order Supreme or Bell Grande fries. These specialty nacho fries are topped with extras like ground beef and sour cream.

Made from a powder mix by Ghiradelli, In-N-Out's hot chocolate is then topped with freeze-dried marshmallows. Priced at only $1.65 per cup, it may be wroth a try in 2018.
