I always get the animal style burger, which has a mustard sauce and grilled onions, but ask for them to explain it better. Shoestring fries are good dipped in vanilla shakes.

Ok, now I get it. Everytime I hear a celebrity, athlete, movie star, you name it, talk about how awesome the burgers are. I'm thinking, how different can it be? Now I get it. The process is amazing to watch, all these employees running at top speed to make the food, right in front of you. Got it to go... More

Always good. Food is the best for fast food Hamburgers and Fries. Double, Double loaded protein style with fries and a shake. Always busy, but service is always fast and friendly. Definitely, will be back many times.

Of course, we are from MN so we had to stop at In-N-out burger. The burgers were great as we remembered and we enjoyed the shakes and fries too.

Fast friendly service, reminiscent of the 50's and 60's when food, fries, and milkshakes were fresh and wholesome!

I really like In-N-Out. But is still fast food. It doesn't compare to a hand formed patty, with great ingredients. Still it is one of the freshest burgers you will find and that is why they are so popular.

This is a CA destination stop if you are not from CA. My neice from NYC came to visit last week and wanted only to go to In-n-out on her "to do list." Excellent food ... worth the wait.
