My family decided we will eat burgers for dinner while on vacation. And In & Out burger had lots of great reviews. So my husband took us. I was terribly disappointed, it is a typical fast food restaurant. The cheeseburger was very similar to a Big Mac at McDonald's. Made me sick to my stomach. I haven't eaten McDonalds in... More

In-N-Out has a perfect record in my eyes for the dozens of times I visited. Best taste, food quality, good price, and service! I once took hungry exchange students visiting from Spain to INO and they thought they'd found the best taste in all America. Fun to witness. And I agree with them. Inside is spotless clean but for my... More

This iconic So. Cal. burger mecca is all about freshness and taste. I live here in So. Cal. so I take it for granted, but I have friends and relatives from out of town that make this their 1st stop when they arrive. Every location is clean and the quality of their food is consistent which ever one you choose... More

My son's first visit to an In-n-Out. The food, as usual, was fantastic and my son enjoyed watching the staff working and making the food. The food was fresh and delicious!

In-N-Out is the ONLY fast food my husband and I eat- we call it our fast health food (don't tell anyone we know) Their food is super fresh and we feel great after eating it- not sick for days like most fast food. And we LOVE checking out the scriptures on the cups and fries. TOO COOL- We'll support them... More

Long lines, slim choices, mediocre burgers and fries. Do not know why many have given this joint a good rating. It's cheap eats but not worth the hassle. Drive thru usually has 20 or so cars lined up.

When in Cali, you have to stop at an In-N-Out, and this location's service is one of the best I've ever experienced! Everyone was beyond friendly, professional and helpful. They really made me want to come back. The burgers are super tasty as to be expected (fries are just ok), and the prices is great too. Will DEF be back... More

Yes, It is that Good! I love how everything is made to order fresh. You cannot beat their burgers and fries. The simple menu makes decisions easy and you can't beat the price!
