Yep - in n out - there's one we walk to now and then. I LOVE their fries and of course, their perfect chocolate shake.

PS - Caine, there isn't one in Santa Barbara. I think you're remembering the one in Goleta.
When I worked in Goleta, it was still part of Santa Barbara.

To get a shake like that, you have to go to Mel's Drive-In!

Speaking of ice cream... One of the bestest was CC Browns on Hollywood Blvd. Don't know if it's there anymore, but they made an incredible hot fudge sundae - served in a silver goblet.

Don't forget about Pink's.

I wish I knew. I miss so many fast food joints that started there. In and Out, Tommy's, Del Taco, Togo's. I need to take a vacation there just to eat.

Time to resurrect this dead thread. Regarding In-n-Out's ginormous burgers, a 5x5 isn't that bad. Back when they were making them as big as you could get them (up until around the time this thread died), my buddy and I went in to get ourselves a couple 8x8 combos with animal fries and extra-large drinks. The next time we went in, we were going to see about trying a 10x10, but we were told they'd stop making big burgers like that and only do 4x4s now. :(

I moved from Fresno (central valley) to Chula Vista (south SD) in 2008 and have found a wonderful local spot: Fred's Old Fashioned Burgers. They have 2 locations, 1 in Alpine and the other in El Cajon, both within a few blocks of an I-8 exit. Their burgers are pretty good, shakes are tasty, and fries are great as well. They also make a 2 lb. burger called "The Goliath". I only managed to finish off 1/2 of one and haven't tried again since. Next time anyone is in the eastern SD area and jonesin' for a good burger, you should stop in and try it.

It was very common to see In-N-Out BURGER bumper stickers with the letters "B" and "R" cut out during the 70's here in L.A. Anyone here remember that?

Wow....only 5 posts in over two years, of which 3 are burger related. Nothing wrong with that. You must be a very busy Valley Gal! I used to eat at the Van Nuys In-N-Out, corner of Woodman & Sherman Way, I think, waaay back?

I'd forgotten I was a member of this group until an email message appeared in my inbox. I'm not a "Valley Girl"... rather a "Galley Girl". I have a boat, hence the Galley Girl reference. I'm in Orange County and my sailboat is in Huntington Beach.

Ah, how stupid of me. I noticed your avatar but didn't put the two together....
