Last week I ate inside a brand spankin' new In-N-Out in El Segundo. At the time of my devouring, it was the newest location in the city... in the state... and quite possibly in the entire nation!
The grand opening happened right before the new year on December 30th, just in time for those whose 2016 resolution is to eat a Double-Double everyday. Its inception began about 9 months ago and I've been waiting patiently ever since I saw the construction site being blocked off.
Fast forward to January 3rd, the day I arrived back to LA after my vacation. As I'm unpacking the car, I see my neighbor Sue and she informs me that the new In-N-Out is finally open. After jumping up in the air like Super Mario, I headed straight over there — MEEP MEEP!!
My experience at this new In-N-Out stood out from all my previous 482 visits. There was no need to listen for my order number as Geiryf kindly offered to bring my order to my table. She was very personable and sweet as she insisted on delivering me an extra cup of water and some ketchup, too.
Of course, this type of service is above and beyond the norm and won't continue past the grand opening phase, but it sure was a nice touch. Later down the road when the El Segundo In-N-Out has lost its luster, I will sit back and smile remembering my first visit.
