Had to try this burger place.

After hearing about it when ever you see actors in CA we had to try it while visiting San Diego. The burgers were pretty good and the fries were very good. The boys had shakes and said they were good too!!

Having a burger at In-and-out in San Diego proved to be a fabulous experience. I had been told they have a special sauce but it goes beyond special. The fries are absolutely crispy, mainly if ordered well done. The first time I ate there I ordered a small burger and I regret that decision as I felt I could have... More

They do few things. They do them all very well. They pay their people a bit more than elsewhere, and they get highly motivated and friendly staff. If you know the "off menu" order items, you can extend the menu yourself. Double Double, animal style for me, please!

I went here due to the fact that EVERY person I know that's been to California said to try it. I tried the fries and the double double (recommended since the patty is so small). The burger was good, not the best I've ever had, but good. The fries were really disappointing though. They felt like they disintegrated in my... More

If you have not visited an area that has In N Out you have to go. That was one of the first things we had to do when getting to San Diego. Nothing else compares.

It may be fast food, but they've manage to keep the quality. As far as fast food burgers go, in-n-out's the way to go! I recommend asking for extra crispy fries:)

Their hamburgers were surprisingly good - fresh, flavorful, not greasy. The unsalted French fries were better than McDonalds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You don't go there for the atmosphere. It is very inexpensive. If one has to have a fast-food hamburger, this is a great place to go to.

My very first time trying IN-N-OUT was at this location in San Diego. I see why there's so much hype surrounding this niche Cali chain. I'm more than impressed. I'm in love, with their burgers, beef patties are fresh, light, not greasy, satisfying to my palate. Lettuce so fresh and chopped so well. Also, that special sauce adds a nice... More

I only get here annually on my trip West. This is a smaller location than some with less outdoor seating, but you can not really complain about the food or service. Those that don't "get-it" about In-N-Out, never would anyway! #1 please, hold the sauce!
