Was there last year.Not overly thrilled with the food to be honest but loved the ambience.

This photo sucks and is totally photoshopped. Poor choice!

Agreed, it is photoshopped. :(

Dear Walton and Alex,

Obviously it was photoshopped, but I doubt you both combined could do better.

This photo obviously has more meaning that what lies on the surface: in our current time of economic recession, the one stable and growing economy is the restaurant industry, specifically fast food restaurants where busy Americans who are now taking on two jobs eat their meals. (Restaurant industry sales reached a record $580 billion in 2010 according to the National Restaurant Association. Also, see this LA Times article [http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/28/business/la-fi-restaurant-jobs-20101028] on how "Restaurants have been adding jobs to the US Economy."

Unlike other fast food restaurants, In-N-Out delivers fresh ingredients to the fast-paced lives of West Coast people. And at In-N-Out, time slows down and you're taken back to traditions and simpler times.

Before you judge, take a step back and understand the story of a photo and reevaluate your own skills to take a picture and tell a story.

yes lina in n out is good therefore ALL PHOTOS OF IN N OUT MUST BE GOOD.

Lina - I do photoshop work for a living and this photo is nothing less than atrocity. There is a way to enhance photos without distracting the viewer. If the person looking at the photo can tell it's photoshopped, the artist isn't doing their job. Yes, there is a form of stylized photoshopping that can be achieved from creating a surreal image while using photoshop, but this is just not that.
