In-N-Out burger and Stan's Donuts, Westwood, LA

In-N-Out Burger, Westwood 
On our way home from the Getty Museum we had to change buses in Westwood, which my research had discovered contained an In-N-Out burger. We weren't going anywhere else for dinner!

The burger joint was pretty packed on the Friday night with uni students and some very dressed up high school kids who looked like they might be on their way to some sort of school ball (or should that be a prom?).

Despite the presence of the secret menu, and the secret secret menu, we just ordered a pair of cheese burgers and fries from the regular menu and took a seat while we waited for our number to be called.
There is a lot of hype around In-N-Out's burgers and having now eaten one, I think that is pretty justified. They were good burgers. Style wise, they are quite a basic construction similar to other fast food outlets. This isn't an over engineered dude food burger.

The quality of the bun, patty, burger sauce and construction just moves them to the next level compared to every other mass produced burger. They are how you'd want every fast food burger to taste and at under $7 for the meal no more expensive. It was just a shame that this was my only In-N-Out experience of the holiday!

Walking away from In-N-Out we passed an independent burger joint just a few doors down that was also pretty busy. To be able to stay in business with such high quality competition next door I suspect that they might serve a pretty good burger as well. One for the next visit....

As we walked past Stan's Donut's I talked Becks into stopping for a quick dessert and we shared a peanut butter donghnut. It wasn't that great if I'm honest, but it is hard to be disappointed in any dinner that contains your first In-N-Out cheeseburger.....
