My son wanted to go to IN & Out because he was told that was a great place for burgers. Actually we found that is is just a little better then a Mac.

One of the great places to eat almost everything they do is perfect from cleanliness to taking your order to speedy setvice. Other places should use them as a profile for business

We dropped by here before we went to San Diego area. It was barely 11am but my brother says "they open at 10:30am!" which I thought was bizarre as fast food places open at 11:00 if they don't serve breakfast. The hamburgers and fries are always good at In and Out and this place was no different. the service was... More

In-Out is by far the best. The only downside is that everyone knows it and the place is always FULL! But this outlet has the service down. Orders are taken quickly (as usualy) but more importantly the food comes up in less than 10 minutes. Went for lunch and the place was packed, but still got my order quickly. Clean... More

We stay at a nearby Hilton Garden Inn for summer fun. This is an easy way to satisfy the whole family with tasty, well made food after a fun day at the beach. We have both meat and veggie eaters; nice to have different options. Even with all the modifications, this place always gets our order correct!

You can't go wrong with In N Out. they provide you a great burger at a reasonable price with a no nonsense menu that doesn't overwhelm the customer base. The staff at this particular location has gotten exactly one order wrong in all the 14+ years we've patronized it! Try that at any other fast food outlet. The burgers as... More

I'm from the east coast and was in town on business. I'd heard about In-N-Out Burger for a long time so I made sure to check it out. I got a cheeseburger with onions and fries. The burger was delivered to my table by the friendly staff and was very fresh and flavorful. Wish they would come to the east!

This establishment will blow your socks off! Don't forget to try the animal style french fries! We will either get tthe meal to go and eat at the beach or we enjoy eating in.

Whenever I crave a burger (always) I make it out to this In n Out. They keep it very clean in this restaurant. I love In N Out. I'm practically a regular for this place. Simple menu so I always know what I want. Try the animal fries or your fries well done. Get your burger protein style or animal... More
