“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We love in n out. The fresh ingredients anr the key. We are big fans of the double doubles. We love the shakes, creamy and thick with a rich flavor. The staff members are friendly and inviting. The place is a winner.

“Great burgers and fries.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

The food and service is just great. The prices are great and the fries are made fresh a long as the burgers are cooked when order.

“So Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

I just love eating here - well usually we are on a road trip and just use the drive-thru but we enjoy the food immensely.

The restaurant is always very clean and the kids who work here are always really friendly.

The serving sizes are perfect portions and the prices are definitely reasonable.

I love the home cut fries, and the milk shakes are delicious - strawberry is never a disappointment.

My kids love the stickers - ask for them!

(The bathrooms are very clean as well)

“What a hamburger's all about! Great value for your dollar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We are local, so we get to hit this In & Out often. I was recently there last week. The location itself is easy to get to, off Rte 101 Fwy. at the San Anselmo exit in Atascadero. It is on the West side of the freeway. When leaving, be careful because you may have to wait a while to get out and make the left turn to get back on the freeway for either north or southbound 101. There is a lot of traffic in that area from the restaurant itself, and the two gas stations, as well as being really close to the freeway ramp traffic.

The restaurant is always clean and has good local staff. The parking lot is large. If you have an RV or horse trailer/bus, boat, pull in and go to the left side to park up against the treeline. That side of the lot is usually empty.

If you are eating in the restaurant, pull to the right and park on the right side, or in front.

If you are going to the drive-thru, pull to the left and the line travels around the back & makes a loop back up the side of the restaurant. They are always pretty slow at the drive through window. We usually cannot believe how slow, but the food is very good & consistent. It is probably quicker to park & go inside & get your food.

The REGULAR MENU is posted, and is pretty easy to choose either a combo, or separate items. Try to hurry it along, as they serve a high volume of customers who like to get "in and out" quickly. If you don't know what you want, don't use the drive up window.

You choose your burger, a drink, and fries & that is pretty much it. You also have the options shown below that you can ask for, but you won't see them on the menu, they are the secret menu items.

The SECRET MENU:

3X3: three 100% pure beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, three slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun

Grilled Cheese: two slices of melted American cheese, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread with or without onions on a freshly baked bun

Animal Style: burger of your choice with hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, a mustard cooked beef patty; add pickle, extra spread with grilled onions

Double Meat: two pure beef patties hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun

4X4: four 100% pure beef patties, hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, spread, four slices of American cheese, with or without onions, stacked high on a freshly baked bun

Protein Style: your favorite burger wrapped in hand-leafed lettuce instead of a bun

Grilled onions cooked down in the collected meat juices on the hot griddle can be added to any sandwich, and come standard if you ask for your burger or fries Animal Style.

Animal Style fries, on the other hand, are topped with cheese, spread, and grilled onions. You'll want to mix 'em up with your fork before the cheese starts to coagulate (of course, you can also ask for just plain old cheese fries). And these options are just the start.

I also love to ask for a packet of their special "spread" sauce & use that for my fries. It is the best. It is a thousand island dressing basically.

Their shakes are good & you can order one with a combo & you just pay more. Vanilla, Choc., & strawberry.

You can up the flavor by asking for any burger mustard grilled. After cooking the first side, the cook will squirt some mustard onto the top of the patty before flipping it so that it sizzles into the meat on the grill. It's so good that I've started doing it myself at home.

Enjoy! For those of you not from California, In & Out is very popular here & the burgers taste really fresh, & nothing like usual fast food. Eat them soon though, they don't hold up very well , and cold fries aren't cool either.

P.S. They don't take phone calls at any of their restaurants, but you can call the 800 number for questions. 1-800-786-1000
