I guess the name "McDonald's" was already taken. The menu is rather limited. I don't understand the popularity.

This was our first experience with In-N-Out...now I know why it is a fast food icon! Great service, churning through hundreds of people an hour with a smile and good quality. loved it!

This burger joint is the best fast food place ever. I'm here so much because it's so delicious and isn't like the other crappy burger places. The fries here are outstanding!

We had to dine at In-N-Out while on vacation in San Diego. We were so happy when they came to Texas but tasting in in Cali was truly a yum win! The fresh patty and fresh cut fries are just so good.

In N Out is our favorite burger place. They are fast and friendly. This location is no exception. No matter where we try In N Out they have the same great burgers and fries.

Living in Colorado for the last 17 years, I miss this place. Utah is as close as they come to the Rockies...maybe some day. I like they now have peppers in the dining area. Noobs we were with loved ordering off-menu items.

Ordered 2 cheeseburgers “animal style” (with grilled onions, tomato, lettuce), an order of fries that arrived unsalted with a salt package, Chocolate Shake, and diet Coke. Average burger place that was extremely busy with lots of employees. Everyone raves about their burgers, so we decided to give it a try. The price was comparable to other burger joints, the Chocolate... More

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.
