Close to Legoland, which made it a great place to pop out of the park for an hour for a not-overpriced lunch. Fast ordering because the menu is so limited, the food is super fresh and comes out pretty quickly. I can't visit California without...More

This is a classic In-N-Out. Limited menu, but the burgers and fries are all fresh. For those of you visiting from not this area, this is a CA classic. If you want lo-carb, simply order protein style! YUM.

Yup, another location, and another great experience. The burgers are great and it always amazes me in how they keep up with the crowds and quality. Make sure you check out the “secret menu” and try something different!

The burgers can come with fresh vegetable toppings per your choice and are very good. We're not a fan of the fries have cardboard texture even though they are fried onsite. The shakes are average. Always long wait if you go through the drive through.

You just can't beat In and Out Burgers. Always fresh ingredients and great service. The fries are made from real potatoes too!

My seatmate on the plane casually mentioned In-N-Out Burger on our flight to Las Vegas. My husband and I were ready for a good burger when we arrived in Carlsbad and were delighted to find an In-N-Out located there! We were not disappointed. The restaurant...More
