The In-N-Out location on Indiana Ave. reopened Jan. 4 after the restaurant closed for four months in order to make the necessary renovations for space.
The restaurant opened its doors again and the Riverside community flooded the newly-renovated location filling the large space. Employees are back to flipping burgers, frying potatoes and taking orders of the late-night-burger-run college students.
Jacob Bernal, freshman music major, was ecstatic about the reopening because of the renovations that transformed the restaurant into something new.
“Before it was really small, and it looked like a little shack that handed out hamburgers that posted the name In-N-Out on the side,” Bernal said. “Now, it looks like an In-N-Out.”
While some such as Bernal are happy to see the restaurant open its doors again, others are unsure about the newness the In-N-Out now possesses.
Jefferson Fernandez, senior behavioral science major, has some reservations to consider before he returns to the location.
“I’m not sure if I will like the feel too much because sometimes when chain restaurants renovate, the feel of the restaurant sort of goes away for me.”
With a busy parking lot, a full drive-thru with busy employees working hard to feed the hungry costumers, the Indiana Ave. In-N-Out is in full swing again. The restaurant is Sunday – Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.
