Animal Style Always

Best bugers and service. Always a happy experience. I have so few opportunities to enjoy In & Out Burgers - they don't exist where I live, so I live it up with a Double Double w/cheese, Animal Syle whenever I get the chance. You won't see "Animal Style" on the menu, it is kind of a not-so-secret... read more

Consistently very good burgers, nothing frozen and you can taste the difference. Great service by energetic and knowledgeable employees. Clean store and bathrooms are better than most.

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

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
