Always good food and friendly service

It's always good and the people are always friendly. It's really a good value too. I don't know why anyone would buy McDonald's if there is an In N Out nearby. Worth the drive

I've been to over a dozen In and Out Burgers in California and have yet to find any complaints except too many people just want to remember the early days. Like all the others you have to find the off rush. But for the great taste that is the same as it was 40 years ago, you will never beat... More

Their menu hasn't changed in decades but that means In-N-Out focuses on burgers and fries. Yeah, they got it right! The drive through is often long but like goes pretty quickly. The parking lot and dining room can get pretty full during peak hours but we can usually find a spot. This place is busy but they're really good about... More

If you're not familiar with in-n-out burger,then you're in for a treat.The menu is not as diverse as a fast food chain restaurant,but the quality of the food is what makes up for it.the burgers and fries are always fresh and taste very good.There is a secret menu with variations of their burgers and fries that you can check out...

We heard a lot about this chain and decided to give it a try on a recent trip to California. What a disappointment! I don't know why people rave about the food - yes, the vegetables on the burger are fresh, but the sauce they put on the buns and the burgers themselves are just abysmal. Add french fries that...

We read an article about In and Out burger and thought we would try it. It was horribly crowded and we had to wait 29 minutes for our food on a Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. Did not offer pickles but lots of onion along with freshly cut fries. Obviously the locals love it but we did not appreciate the... More

The only part about In & Out that I don't like is the LONG line at the drive thru. The service is fast, the inside is kept clean, and the food is always fresh and fantastic! Easy access off the 101.
