Now for everyone who has found this page searching for something like, “Is there an In-N-Out Burger in the UK?” or “Is there an In-N-Out Burger in London?” I just want to come clean about something.

I’ve never been to an In-N-Out Burger. But it’s NOT MY FAULT!

See, In-N-Out Burger is a chain popular on the Pacific Coast and in the Southwest of the US, and as a Florida girl, I just haven’t had the opportunity to go to one.

Hey, sidenote! If you’re traveling to the UK, whether for a short period of time or as an expat, why don’t you join my Facebook group where you can ask questions, get advice or just look at pretty pictures of this part of the world! Just click here to request to join and I’ll add you!

But I know the feeling of wondering if your favorite burger chain is in the UK, so I am HERE FOR YOU and we’re going to work through this together.

So…

“Is there In-N-Out in the UK or England or London?”

Sadly, there is no In-N-Out Burger in the UK or London, but there are some great burger joints to check out. They probably won’t come anywhere near what you’re used to if you’re a diehard In-N-Out fan, but I’m a blogger, not a miracle worker.

Now before I get too deep into the fact that there was an In-N-Out pop-up in London and what alternatives to In-N-Out Burger there are in the UK, I wanted to draw your attention to some awesome resources I’ve created for anyone who is about to embark on a journey to London, England, or the UK.

 

Firstly, you need the best book on England ever written – the book is called “Watching the English” and you should click here and check it out.

It takes everything you think you know about the UK and either explains it or shows you what you’re really getting yourself into (major small talk and frequent tea breaks, woo!)

If you’re coming for just a short time, you’ll want to check out the guide to surviving the London Underground and figuring out UK money, but if you’re staying for a longer period of time (say you’re an expat or a study abroad student in London), I’ve got some great articles on culture shock and driving in England as an American that you may want to check out.

No matter how long you’re coming for, just know that the UK is awesome and you’re going to love it! And yes, it may rain, but not as much as you might think! (Unless it does, in which case I@m sorry).

Right, so now on to In-N-Out Burger in the UK and London.

Firstly, In-N-Out Burger was founded in 1948, which has given the general US public a long time to fall in love with it.

There are over 300 locations across the US, and it’s only natural that Americans heading across the pond are going to be wondering if they can find the same menu items they’re used to.

In fact, In-N-Out Burger is not completely oblivious to the need for their chains in the UK.

This is evidenced by their July 2018 pop-up in London, which was highly attended during its one day run. It also had a London pop-up in 2016.

For many, it seems unlikely that this is indicative of the chain coming to the UK because they haven’t even expanded to the East Coast of the US and other brands, like Chick-Fil-A, have done pop-ups in London and you don’t see any Chick-fil-As in the UK.

That being said, other brands, like Five Guys, have also expanded to the UK market in recent years so perhaps there is hope yet.

As for now, though, there are alternatives to In-N-Out Burger in the UK, but none of the actual stores to speak of.

Alternatives to In-N-Out Burger in the UK and London

So where can you find the closest thing to In-N-Out Burger in the UK and London?

Five Guys

As mentioned, there are Five Guys eateries across the UK now, with a couple locations in London.

This is going to give you your American burger craving, though I would caution you that the menu items are slightly different to the American ones as it’s a bit toned down and the price is more expensive.

But! If you want a burger, it’s there for you. Sadly, Steak N Shake is also not in London (my favorite).

McDonald’s

Okay, I GET IT. McDonald’s is nothing like In-N-Out Burger. You’re probably going to want to burn me at the stake for just suggesting that.

ALL I’M SAYING IS THAT IT’S AN OPTION. There are McDonald’s in London. There. I said it.

Shake Shack

In recent months and years, Shake Shack has come into the UK with much success. There are locations across the country, including on in Covent Garden in London which is conveniently located for sightseeing.

I can vouch for the quality of their burgers, though I still think that nowhere does milkshakes like America.
