Guest #18, your order is ready.

Overall rating: 7.1/10

Another new number so soon. We're coming up on 50, otherwise known as the halfway point.

Burger - The burger was pretty good this time around, but nothing about it really shouted out "hey this is delicious". It was technically sound with minor faults. All the ingredients were placed on the burger properly but I did end up with one bite of just bun left. Again, taste wise nothing popped and I would say the biggest negative would be the the effect that a slightly over toasted bun has (I call that the grilled cheese effect). That slightly over toasted bun comes into play with the texture as well as it makes the edges of the bun pretty stiff. A lot of less-green lettuce as well, causing a slight dip in taste.

Taste - 1.6 (out of 2)
Texture - 1.5 (out of 2)
Presentation - .9 (out of 1)

Fries - I have to say these might have been the worst french fries I've had at In-N-Out Burger. But this is why this new scoring systems exist, because the worst In-N-Out fries are still better than most other fast food fries. Taste wise they were actually pretty good. I added pepper but no salt. However, they had some atrocious texture. They are even more limp and "soggy" than the last visit. The only thing that could have been worse would have been completely under-cooked fries that were still frozen or cold. Somehow these weren't under-cooked, just had a really bad texture. The good taste really saved this part of the meal.

Taste - 1.6 (out of 2)
Texture - .5 (out of 2)

Diet Coke - 1 (out of 1)

As far as interesting goes there wasn't much as we sat outside. Thought this was a dinner visit. And on the Fourth of July, which I found it odd that In-N-Out was open on as they are closed most holidays.


  1. you should state which location(s) you are at... Do you go to the same location all the time?? Do you switch it up??

  2. I generally go to the same location as it's usually on my lunch break. It's the Carlsbad, CA location. I've gone to others are here as well, including the Oceanside and San Marcos locations. Of course there are the AZ visits as well when I am back home visiting family.

    For the sake of the blog I should always make sure to go to locations when I am in other major towns, like if I am in Las Vegas or something. I also want to visit the original location as well.
