This was our first trip here and was excited to try. Tasted like any other burger place except fries are not good. California seems to overcook their fries to crisp. I'm sure some people love that though.

They do one thing and they do it perfect, nearly every time. This particular visit, the staff went above and beyond to help my 11 year old autistic son when his burger wasn't just so. Thanks so much for the great service!

we had been traveling all day and after a quick nap we needed food. We were told that the burgers were the best in California. We weren't disappointed, the burgers had a great flavor and more important, tasted like beef. The fries however, were average and the shakes had a artificial aftertaste. I still would recommend a stop, we were... More

We come from a state without an In-N-Out Burger, so obviously this is a must stop. T restaurant is clean, the food is consistently good and comes out quickly for the amount of traffic here. I enjoy people-watching here because everyone is enjoying themselves and their food. I also like watching the employees because they appear to enjoy their jobs,... More

I understand that with proper quality control and good management practices, consistently good burgers will result. But how do they manage to find such cheerful and friendly employees?

Price is right burgers are right just hard to beat. Worth the wait the drive through is always busy but that also says it is very good.

In-n-Out Burger is the coolest place ever. The menu is simple; burger, burger or burger. The staff was polite and quick to get my order ready. And I have to say, the restaurant choices in Carlsbad are unlimited and I could have went anywhere but In-n-Out burger will always be my #1 go to place. Plus it helps that John... More

We couldn't believe the number of cars in line on a Saturday night! We parked, went it and ordered our excellent burgers (get "animal style" with grilled onions and pickles). We enjoy the hustle and bustle of workers and customers alike for the few minutes to get our takeout order. Freshly ground meat and baked buns? Freshly sliced veggies? That... More

This is a very busy location getting crowds from local businesses and the nearby beaches. The burgers here are simple but yet consistently delicious and juicy. We simply cannot leave without ordering a thick milk shake which is equally delicious. It's a good thing we're heading out to the beach after lunch. We have work off this substantial meal!
