The 8 Longest In-N-Out Lines According to Google Maps

Dean Martin Road Las Vegas We’ve all known what it’s like to be stuck in that terrifying In-N-Out drive-thru line. Sometimes, it feels like it’ll never, ever end. However, eventually we get to that last window and those sloppy animal fries and juicy double double make it worth the wait. These iconic items that have garnered In-N-Out a devoted cult following, with fans willing to wait ages just to try their classic cheeseburgers to “secret” menu items like the Monkey Style burger. We here at Foodbeast were curious to find out just how long people were willing to wait and scoured Google Maps for the longest In-N-Out lines. Here’s what we found.

It’s well known in California that the location in Barstow is often the busiest one, with traffic coming in and out (heh, get it?) of Las Vegas. However, it looks like Google Maps caught them on a slow day. While these are only a few noteworthy ones we’ve found, there’s probably tons more out there that have drive-thru lines for miles. If you think your local In-N-Out should make the list, sound off in the comments.

    You missed the LAX one.

    • Steve

      I definitely was about to mention this

      • Anonymous

        Definitely apt to miss a few, please feel free to include screenshots of busy ones if you’re so inclined (right into the comments)!

        Again, sometimes Google Maps caught some of the busier restaurants at non-busy times…so that might be why they didn’t make the cut.

        Excited to see potential screenshots though!

    • Jay Sinclair

      And the Venice Blvd. one.

    • Summer Swells

      LAX should be top 5, for sure.
      The Washington location in MDR (by Costco) is also long, but not as frustrating as the LAX location.

  • zarchasmpgmr

    Let me think – Kettleman City, Roseville…

  • Brian Lauritzǝn

    Yup…LAX, Glendale (Harvey St.), and that one along I-5 in Kettleman City.

  • C.M.

    In n Out Tustin gets crazy during the lunch hour

  • Heather Irwin

    Santa Rosa often has way longer lines than any of those.

  • Allen McDonald

    Hollywood Orange@Sunset, epic lines

    • Joe’s Daily


  • nick

    I dont get it… these lines are no bigger than any of the In N Outs I go to. Hell the one in Hollywood off sunset and orange is ALWAYS packed with the line going out of the parking lot and down the road.

  • Hollowedout

    Downey is ALWAYS 15-20 cars deep at anytime of the day or night!!

  • Remy Schrader

    Irvine please! Double-back in Eagle Rock is an easy win.

    • Lauren Marie Soriente Motus

      That’s the same one as Glendale.

  • Bumble Bee

    they forgot the norwalk one. it has a double line like the pasadena one, is longer, AND has people in the center trying to turn left into it. pfft! the fact is they are ALL like that. i don’t think there is any real contest.

  • Tom Spalsbury

    The Huntington Beach one is the one I go to.

  • ArtsBeatLA

    Sooooooo – just park your car & walk in & order. Gotta be quicker than the car queue.

  • Skylar Mamie Lenox

    I have been to many an In-N-Out in my lifetime, and although all of them have long lines, Glendale seems to be the worst (I’m sure the new ones in Texas will beat it short-term). One time I decided the line was too long and if I was going to wait for my food, I’d rather do it not wasting gas. There was hardly a line inside and when I left with my food the car I was behind hadn’t even reached the ordering menu yet. Man, I wish it was just hype, but Animal Style fries are the best food in the world… ever.

  • Matthew B. Tepper

    You missed Sherman Oaks.

  • Justin Wald

    In-N-Out Laguna Niguel. Check it on google street view. The double drive-thru’s overflow onto the street… the line can get well past the neighboring Carls Jr. Entrance.

  • Rob Vella

    The Venice Blvd one is always a nightmare. The area wasn’t designed to hold the line and it constantly causes traffic congestion.

  • Jem

    Totally missed the In-N-Out in Panorama City. Right in the middle of a main street (Roscoe) swear I’ve seen people almost crash because the line entrance is too narrow and cars just dive into traffic.

    glad to see Auburn on there. But you should have seen it about 10 years ago, before the parking lot was expanded. See that tree, about 1/3 of the way down the red line from the building? That’s where the lot used to end, and it was a dead end. The line used to trail out the parking lot, down the hill to hiway 49, under hiway 80. You couldn’t even park because the line of cars waiting for drive thru blocked the lot.

    The Wendy’s on Touhy Ave. in Skokie Ill, often has lines just as long at lunchtime.

    Is In and Out burger really that good? I had burgers from just about every joint you can think of going back to the 70′s, never had theirs.

    • Anonymous

      A couple of years ago, I was working in Vegas, and a coworker suggested we check it out. I had heard about In and Out, but never tried it. I will say it was a fantastic burger, but I don’t believe i’d wait behind more than 4 or 5 cars for my meal. I didn’t see what made it worth waiting behind 15-20 cars.

      • Mark J Reed

        they will through 20 cars in the time Mc D’s would get through 5.
        And the food is fresh.

    • Anonymous

      The fries are terrible. And I somewhat resent eating food covered in bible verses, but they’re easy to ignore.

      • James Deangelis

        Bible verses? What do you mean? (I never been there).

        • Anonymous

          They place bible chapters and verses in the food wrappers. John 3:16 written in the bottom rim on a drink cup, for example. They don’t throw it in your face, but I like my lunch a little more secular, you know what I mean?

          • Alex Delarge

            I’d say if your reading food wrappers while eating you might need some friends!

          • Anonymous

            I’d say if you’re going to equate literacy with anti-social behavior that you might need some manners.

          • Alex Delarge

            Awww poor lil guy hit a nerve and you got all butt hurt. I’m sorry maybe your mommy can get you a tissue for your issue! The last comment is yours as I know you desperately seek any attention.

          • James Deangelis

            Oh! I won’t eat there yet. I don’t force my beliefs on other people by shoving it down their throats and people shouldn’t do that to me.

          • Doge

            so no chick chick fil a either. they do the same

  • Anonymous

    Actually, this only tells someone that they have slow service during peak lunch hours (the shadows say 11-1, give or take) where they should be working full speed.
    Fast service would have the slowdown be before the order sign with a gap between it and pickup window.

    The other thing I see is stores not designed for drive thru. They’re long in some cases because of horrible planning.

    • Doge

      no people just order a bunch of food. the one in Fontana, I seen people walk out of the IN N out with about 15 burgers at a time(they are in boxes when its more than 14). then there is people who order 5-8 10×10′s and 4×4′s.

  • Alex Delarge

    Double double animal..thanks much!

  • Robert Walsh

    I was excited to finally have my first In-N-Out burger but I was disappointed. Not enough meat, tasted more lettuce than anything. Enjoy if you like them, but I’ll pass.

  • Ashe

    what a waste of gas

    • Doge

      this is why people are so fat and have diabetes. not willing to walk.

  • Inet6

    Clearly you have not seen the line in Austin, TX.

  • Miss Macy

    I’ve never eaten at In-N-Out. Not even when I lived in L.A. for 13 years.

    • Doge

      the meat is not that great. the fries are worse than the ones at micky d’s. they are soggy and very salty

  • R Stacey Lee

    ..and Anaheim,CA—Brookhurst/Orange…always busy…
