“The iconic in-&-out! The burger of California, one of my all time favorite burgers around. Fair warning, there is so much hype and talk about in-&-out and because of this many peoples expectations are so high! Is it the best burger ever? Probably not (some hard core fans would so disagree haha). Is it affordable, flavorful, and blows most every other fast food burger through the roof? Absolutely. ”

“If you are looking for breakfast, look no further then Deja Vu. Located in one of Redding's oldest buildings, the restaurant look itself isn't very exciting but the food is fantastic. Their eggs Benedict is the best I've ever had. (I get he BAS Benedict, Bacon Avocado Spinach) I always say I'm going to try new breakfast places in town and just end up coming back here for the eggs benny because it's so good.”
