American Idol finale was on tonight? Who cares!

In-N-Out announced plans to finally scuttle their original business plan and expand outside the 500 mi burger radius. I plan on building all business trips through DFW that'll require a minimum 4 hr layover. What do you order at In-N-Out?

Hahaha,

I saw this yesterday, and am super pumped! Now we just need one to magically appear down in Austin! I suspect it will happen sooner or later, but sooner is preferable!

I hope In-N-Out's decision to start franchising doesn't hurt the quality of their food. That was always one nice thing about them, the freshness, and I suppose it's possible that it could be impacted. I bet they find a way to make it work!

  

Cheers,
Cameron

When I was living out in IAH I missed In-N-Out like CRAZY. The weird thing is that there was a restaurant in PRC, which is a tiny little sleepy town in northern AZ nobody gives a damn about. All my friends from Cali raved about them and I just couldn't believe all the hype. Then they finally dragged me into the restaurant and I've been hooked ever since!   

After DFW they should definitely go into IAH.

The one thing I hated about IAH was the Chick-fil-a in every corner. I usually stuck to the hole-in-the-wall neighborhood restaurants in the area (which were always amazingly good) but occasionally I'd go to the usual fast food joints if in a hurry. Anyways, i'll just say my first time in a Chick-fil-a was also my last.  yuck 

Back on topic... I always order a double-double animal style, no spread, and fries animal style, with the spread of course. That'll leave me very satisfied.

I once ordered a 4x4 and finished it on my own. Not bad considering I was a scrawny (but starving) 130lb college student

Too bad they are opening in Garland. It's an hour away from KDFW, in good traffic. I'm not driving out there.

Congrats Dallas.

Yes hopefully the quality and service wont be effected. While the article keeps mentioning meat processing limitations, the company also has a unique and strict local supplier chain for other items also such as potatoes and veggies with hand picked local farms and suppliers that provide items to very exacting standards and quality.

Also will be interesting what they do with corporate culture and employees that must attend In-N-Out University on regular basis for seminars which is a lot easier to do being a California centered business instead of a 1500 miles away franchise.

But hey I'm sure the biblical references on cups and burger wrappers will go over well in Texas, something that has been a bit controversial here in CA.

Anyhow, again congrats D/FW and enjoy!

So In-n-Out skips over New Mexico and plans on opening new restaurants much farther away in Texas! WTF?  


The reason New Mexico is so windy is because Texas sucks and Arizona blows.

In-N-Out, STAY AWAY FROM BOISE!

I don't want my skinny ass to get fat.  

Congrats Texas!   
Though this comes as a bit of a surprise; I always thought they restricted themselves in the Southwest so as to build a novelty factor and not dilute the brand. But still cool to hear.

Cheers!

Rantings about cardiovascular disease aside, I have to agree. Animal style is simply the only way to order at In-N-Out (once every couple months never hurt anybody!). Boo-ya!!

but it ain't all that.

I don't get all crazy about In-and-Out, but they do have a damn good burger for a fast food chain. Obviously the almost obsessive attention to detail, quality control over suppliers, etc pays off.

Didn't say they could, but that won't stop them from trying to balance things. One thing Whataburger does offer that In-N-Out does not is a much larger menu selection.

No, I believe they mean In-N-Out as a quick stop to eat, and then you are "out", as in gone back out on the road.

If you look more deeply into it, they aren't actually scuttling their business plan. They will be opening another meat processing facility in Texas. The main reason they haven't been able to expand outside a certain radius of Baldwin Park is that they didn't want to freeze the hamburgers.
