How do you do an In-N-Out run from LAX or other LA area airports? [merged threads]

Effective May 2015, Parking Spot has implemented a customer-only policy for its shuttles at LAX. This effectively means In-N-Out Burger runs via Parking Spot Shuttle will come to an end.

From certain LAX terminals (e.g. T1), it is probably fastest to walk to In-N-Out Burger using the sidewalk on Sepulveda Blvd. This is a roughly 15 minutes walk. From the lower (arrival) level, take the sidewalk outside T1 and cross Vickburg Ave and walk east towards Sepulveda Blvd. Turn left at Sepulveda and head north pass the urgent care facility at 96th street and cross Lincoln Blvd to In-N-Out. Please note that it is recommended that you walk from the lower (arrival) level. The upper (departure) level sidewalk will lead to towards Sky Way and it has very narrow and inadequate sidewalk, which is difficult to navigate with luggage.

From terminals further afield, you can utilize the free LAXit Shuttle (green buses) to Rideshare lot. Take the Shuttle Bus at the LAXit sign on the Lower/Arrival Level in front of each terminal. Once you reach the Rideshare lot, walk towards the sidewalk on Century Blvd and follow it to Sepulveda. Turn left at Sepulveda and head north.

To return to LAX from In-N-Out Burgers, follow the sidewalk on Sepulveda south towards LAX and turn right on Century. Walk to T1 if that is your departure terminal. Catch the free Airline Connection Shuttle A from T1 to other terminals.



From terminals further afield, you can utilize the free LAX Shuttle C to Long Term Parking Lot C. Take the Shuttle Bus at the LAX Shuttle & Airline Connections sign on the Lower/Arrival Level islands in front of each terminal. Exit the bus at the first stop outside the airport @ 96th between Skyway and Sepulveda (before the bus enters the parking lot). From there, it is a 7~8 minute walk to In-N-Out on Sepulveda Blvd. See Google Map Here: https://goo.gl/maps/yyuJu

To return to LAX, follow the same path back to 96th Street but continue past Skyway to the LAX Lot C Shuttle Depot to board awaiting bus. See Google Map Here:

I don't know whether to start a new thread or add to this one . . .

On a trip to LA a few days ago we tried In Out Burger so as to be able to meaningfully participate in this discussion. Several people eating at the same time as us ordered something that looked like a heap of fries with thousand isalnd dressing on them.

What is this item? I looked on the secret menu and I still don't understand it. Or don't I want to know?

(And yes, I would make a special trip here while changing at LAX, or otherwise being on the ground in the LA area.)

Animal style fries, I believe.

In - n out debate?

I can see how people would debate NYC pastrami, Yanks v. Mets, CA beaches, but I can't see how you could debate this fine dining experience. My advise: try it and see if it isn't the best and freshest fast food you can get. It is always a stop on the way from the airport when I hit the coast. The 2k miles to get there is a hassle, but it is almost is worth it. I wish they would expand to the midwest.

Thank you, thank you--now I can concentrate on my work again!

I'll definitely have to try these sometime.

I originally fell into this thread because I once spent a fairly useless 4or 5 hours or so at LAX--not enough time to go anywhere by public transportation and get back by the recommended check-in time. In case anyone is interested, the police will not let you walk out of the airport on foot!

The closest hotel to the airport is the Radisson. Just hop on their shuttle, and walk out of the hotel. You can stroll north on Sepulveda to get to In-N-Out from there.

Not true, unless this is some sort of silly "security" rule that has changed in the past few months. I've walked into and out of LAX a few times, right onto Sepulveda Blvd (just past T1). LA isn't very pedestrian friendly, but Sepulveda does have a sidewalk.

We no longer disagree. Upon our arrival at LAX yesterday, took Parking Spot shuttle to our car. Went immediately to In-n-out. It was better than I had remembered. Think there is something special about that LAX location ^

Must be the jet fuel vapors and "blue hail"

Oh, I feel so much better now.

All of you eat another one for me, please. Will be at least 6 months or more before I can again.

Click for a cool aerial pic of LAX In-N-Out being buzzed by a Singapore Air 747

Last time I ate a burger there The Parking Spot wasn't there. It's nice to have the option of hitching a shuttle ride to a spot right next door. ^

In'n'Out

I love the burgers, no lettuce, just tomatos, sauce and grilled onions. I do not like their fries. My kids think I am crazy. My son's best friend works at the one in Redondo and he tells me I am nuts to my face. Oh well.

They do have the best burgers though.

From today's NYTimes.
Food editor, Frank Bruni recently ate fast food in several states. See what he had to say about In-N-Out:
" This California chain inspires worship, and I understand why. The burgers tasted fresher than most though, like seemingly all fast-food burgers, they were cooked to a temperature well above medium and the vegetables atop them tasted even fresher. The juicy tomato and cooked onions on an "animal-style" cheeseburger were revelations."

Mano mano, that makes me hungry! Can't wait to get back out to LA and devour a few 2x0's w/grilled onions.

Burgers near Mickey's place?

On the way to Hawaii this summer and am stopping at LAX and heading for the Hilton in Anaheim ASAP and go visit Mickey with the family for the day The second day is solely for Mickey. Third day wake up and fly to Honolulu. While I have not finalized plans I think it is most likely we will travel to/from the airport via Supper Shuttle. Apparently these awesome burger places arent close to Mickeys place. I would like to have the whole family get a shot at these burgers. The best and easiest way to do this would be how?
