We stopped to get four milkshakes which were tasty. It was hard to leave without getting a double double grilled onion. The staff has a great attitude and the restaurant is always kept clean. Repeat customer for sure! Wish there was signage on I-5 so I was not in the fast lane making unsafe maneuvers for my favorite burger joint.

Although the grandkids don't like chain restaurants, they make an exception for In and Out Burger and especially like the shakes,

We have visited this in and out several times on vacation over the years. The food is always good however this time it was really crowded even in the middle of the week. If you can go there during non-peak hours.

Being from New York we don't get to experience In and Out Burger as much as we like so it's a treat and so good we actually plan into our itinerary for lunch one of our vacation days. Love the custom ordering, the fast paced lines but relaxed dining and the food is awesome but doesn't feel like junk food... More

We enjoyed the burgers and the grand kids love the shakes. We have taken food home and by the time we go 1.5 miles the fries are like cardboard. We ate in yesterday and found the fries much better when warm.

In-N- Out Burger is a fast food chain where you can find good burgers. The store is always full of customers due to the excellent price and good service. If you like burgers, this is the place for you.
