First time

People told us to try it out. We did our first night in Carlsbad. It was busy but really good. Very glad we can now say we've had an In and Out burger!

I'm not a huge fast food fan but was told that In-N-Out is better than most. We tried and agree. The menu is very simple - burgers and fries and drinks. But they do them to order and do them very well. They know what they have and choose to perfect what they do instead of trying to be all... More

The food really was delicious. We aren't big burger eaters, but tried this out to see if it was as good as people say. Guess what? It is. Freshly made and it's not small portions.

I've heard pro and con....but I have to tell you, the burger was pretty amazing. It was fresh, cooked to order, and had fresh garnish. Tasty and priced to compete with the other fast food places except In & Out blows them out of the water. It was so good we did lunch there 4 out of the 5 days... More

Didn't really see what the hype is about. There are 3 combos you can choose from. The fries weren't great at all. Didn't like the iceberg lettuce in the burger. Customer service was great and the long line at the drive thru moved quickly.

Four of us stopped here for lunch and had burgers and fries. The fries were delicious. I wish there was a little more meat on the burger. I couldn't really taste it. They have indoor and outdoor seating.

Crisp, ripe, fresh, sliced, grilled, animal style or stacked! Don't forget the fries. When in California do what the locals love to do....eat an In N Out Burger. You'll fit right in.

This was our first visit to In-N-Out. Great burgers & fries, the price is right, this is what fast food should all be!
