In-N-Out Burger near SoFi Stadium

After watching our first-ever NFL game in person at SoFi Stadium, we struggled to return to our hotel. Lyft and Uber are nowhere in sight, and traffic is horrible, with thousands of cars trying to leave the stadium simultaneously. We walked to Hollywood Park Casino, hoping it would be easier for ridesharing, but we were wrong.

We discussed plans for the rest of the evening, and the primary goal is to have dinner at In-N-Out, and it just so happens that there's one nearby. We walked there praying that traffic would be more manageable after our meal. The line in In-N-Out was LONG, but service was quick. It's the first time my brother has had the burger since 2007!

It's also the first time I've tried it inside a restaurant since I was 18. Wow. It's genuinely an excellent classic burger and fries. It's crazy how real potatoes cut and fried in-store mean quality and taste. I'm so happy.

After enjoying our meal, we tried to figure out the best way to return to our hotel. I explored walking and taking transit. There is a bus that will stop in front of our hotel. Woohoo! The trip should take 15 minutes, but the traffic makes it closer to 30. We're happy to be back at our home away from home.
