In-N-Out Burgers are a west coast tradition. I finally had a chance to try one myself on a recent trip to California. The hamburgers lived up to their reputation. They were great and very reasonably priced. I would pass on the french fries next time. They seemed a little undercooked.

I liked this burger, good flavour and side serves were generous. Not quite as good as Five Guys but I guess that is all personal preference, I found the only thing lacking here was the choice of additional filings. (There weren't any)

We have eaten at this In-N-Out every time we have visited the San Diego area and have yet to be disappointed. The food was great, as usual. The restaurant always seems to be busy. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon, and it was very crowded. However, the food still comes out pretty fast. We will continue to make a... More

Great place for a quick Burger by the beach. Inn and Out is always good. It is close to the beach in Carlsbad and a great place just to go with the family for a quick lunch.

Hot, fresh, and delicious! The buns was soft and flavorful, the meat cooked well, and the veggies were fresh and ripe. Great combo for a good, fast burger.

We do not have In-N-Out in our part of the country, and I expected this to be great based on all the rave reviews. I was disappointed, and am at a loss as to how anyone can say this is the "best burger in California". Maybe the best fast food burger, but the best burger??? I did not find the... More

...Speaks for itself. It's a rare day when there isn't a line at In-N-Out...at any time of day. Great food and fantastic service...

This location is run well compared to some of the other locations. Quality food done right. Venture out: try a double double animal style with animal fries, outstanding. They offer a protein burger that they will make gluten free, fries are also gluten free.

As usual, it is slammed at lunch time. The drive-thru line was into the street. We went in to eat and only took a few minutes for our food.
