If you’re looking for some priceless bites to fuel a night out with friends, let the red roof and yellow zigzag sign of In-N-Out Burger mark your spot. Jump in your pirate ship—okay, your midsize sedan—and set a course for burger bliss. These family-owned burger shops have been satisfying hungry customers in Los Angeles since 1948, and they’re now scattered all over California. When you share a meal here with friends, it’s like you’ve stepped back in time to an era when quality food and great service meant everything. You’ll also be enjoying one of L.A.’s quintessential experiences. For Hollywood denizens, the spot on Sunset Boulevard is the place to be seen. Show your friends that you’re in the know by ordering from the “secret menu,” reserved for hardcore aficionados. Grab lots of napkins as you chow down on a finger-licking Double-Double—Animal Style—with mustard-cooked beef, grilled onions, melted cheese, and extra sauce. Pass around fries so fresh they’re made from potatoes cut right in front of your eyes. Wash it all down with a ridiculously thick signature shake. With happy stomachs and barely a dent in your wallet, you’ll be more than ready to paint the town any color you like.
