Baldwin Park in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
In-N-Out Burger opened on October 22, 1948 at 4:15 PM in Baldwin Park, California. The store was originally on Francisquito and Garvey, where the current freeway overpass is now located. It moved to this location in 1954.
On that first day in 1948, in a 10' x 10' building just like this, Harry and Esther sold 57 burgers. They welcomed customers and took orders through a two-way speaker.
We built this replica so that visitors can take a step back in time and get a glimpse of how it all began.
