A petition started last week on calls for the Irvine-based chain to stop “letting its fans down by failing to serve anything that would satisfy a burger-loving customer who wants a healthy, humane, sustainable option.”

The petition started by The Good Food Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to food sustainability complains “If you want a meat-free meal at In-N-Out, you’re going to be stuck eating multiple orders of French fries or a cheese-slathered bun.” This isn’t the first time people have petitioned In-N-Out to change its menu. In 2012, an LA-area vegan also petitioned the chain to add a veggie burger. At last count this petition has already exceeded the support of that one with 18,338 supporters. In-N-Out hasn't changed its official menu since 1948.

Do you agree, should In-N-Out adapt to changing times and add a veggie option to its menu? Or would that be a slippery slope to bending to the latest whims of customers?
