Replica Of The Original In-N-Out Burger Stand In Baldwin Park, California

Visited some very important California history - The replica of the original In-N-Out Hamburger stand in Baldwin Park, California!

This replica of the tiny (100sf) 1948 stand was built in 2014 to pay homage to how it all began.

The neon marquee sign over the burger stand.

A plaque outside the stand with some information on the stand and the beginnings of the In-N-Out company.

This location is open limited hours, but it is staffed by a friendly, helpful attendant happy to provide some history and answer any questions.

While this is a replica of the original stand, this is not the original location of that first stand (although it is close).  

The original location was across the street under the I-10 freeway about where the overpass / freeway sign are now.  

Now, let's take a look at what the inside would have looked like back in 1948.
This place was spotless.

A beautiful Coca-Cola cooler, coffee maker and some old photos.

Manual cheese and potato slicers.

Coldspot refrigerator.

Cooking surface and fryers.

Cooking and prep surfaces.

Potato washer and peeler.

Looking in the back door.  Smile!

In-N-Out was the first in California to have a drive-thru.  The "2-Way Speaker" is on the left as you drive in, and check out those prices!

Those prices are historical only, this location does not serve food.  Not to worry though, if visiting here makes you hungry, there a fully functional In-N-Out just on the other side of the freeway.  The In-N-Out University and company store are there also.

People bring their classic cars and trucks here to the drive-thru for a fun photo opportunity.
The attendant said that this happens, and sure enough, a few minutes later these three classic VW's pulled in for some photos.

The address for this location is: 13766 Francisquito Ave. Baldwin Park, Ca 91706.
Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
