Got a three by one and loved it, haven't had one for about six months; about four too long. I went inside as the drive through has eight cars in line, I was first to order at the counter. Bear

No doubt about it this is the place for Great Burgers and Fries. Everything is fresh, not frozen. One stop and you will be hooked. In many cases it is rated as the best burger, fast food or not, in California.

The name says it all. Friendly staff. Decent fries. Burger was small. It was good overall. Don't expect much from it and you'll be good. I'd eat there again if I had to. Prices aren't bad for SD.

This is not a restaurant in Chicago so we had to try to see what all the hype was about. The burgers were decent and the staff was friendly but the fries were the worst we ever had. They taste like cardboard and no matter what you put on them like salt, pepper, ketchup it doesn't help. Even our 9... More

I love their burgers. They have so many people, that everything is super fresh and they have so many items in their menu, that most of the people do not know them. It's worth to check them on line.

Since we do not live in California, we had never visited an In-N-Out Burger before and wanted to know what all of the hype was about. Although the food was good, we didn't feel there was anything special about it. The burgers reminded us of Wendy's burgers. We do not feel the need to return anytime soon.

I NEVER eat red meat but because of the In N Out Burger reputation, I had a hamburger and it was amazing. I had not eaten a hamburger in over 20 years but went with the crowd and was not sorry.
