The burger is a lie: Chinese In-N-Out turns out to be fake

Another IP infringement from the king country of knockoffs

For many burger aficionados, In-N-Out is hallowed ground, its sacred Double Double a thing to be spoken of with reverence and respected at all costs. So Chinese burger lovers were understandably excited when they heard the Double Double would be making an appearance in Shanghai. The only problem was that In-N-Out doesn’t have any stores in China.

The restaurants touting the Double Double (and fries and shakes) are owned by a company called CaliBurger, which sells In-N-Out’s California image with more than just food, offering California wines on its menu and employing tanned Western models as its spokespeople.
