In-N-Out Coming To Texas!

Thu May 27, 2010 5:03 am

        

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!

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!

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

Good.

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.

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.

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.

Quoting dxing (Reply 20):

Not entirely true. In-N-Out likes to keep it simple for the average Joes, but there's a rather large "secret" menu only known to true In-N-Out connoiseurs and aficionados  

The not so secret, secret menu:

Quote:

Burgers

Stock: If you ordered your burgers off the menu they would come with:

*

a spread similar to thousand island dressing.
*

one slice of tomato (two if one won't cover the entire bottom bun)
*

a portion of lettuce
*

Onions are always offered when you order. They come as a fresh slice by default, but chopped and grilled onions are available by request. The amount is constant regardless of the number of meat patties unless you ask for extra or lite of a condiment.

but instead consider ...
Custom Burgers

Note: Many of these styles can be ordered in combination (for example, Double-Double Animal Style No Salt).

Animal style is the most popular "secret" style. In addition to the standard toppings, animal style burgers include:

*

pickles
*

extra spread
*

extra grilled onions
*

mustard fried onto each meat patty.

Protein style, popular among [wikipedia]Atkins dieters, no/low carb eaters and people who just like lots of lettuce:

*

replaces the hamburger bun with large leaves of lettuce.
*

It can be combined with other special orders, e.g., animal protein style.
*

Lettuce is generally colder than buns, so beware of quickly-congealing beef grease in the sandwich.

3×3, 4×4, or generally M × C refers to a burger with a varied number of meat patties (first number, M) and slices of cheese (second number, C). For example, the popular Double-Double would be 2×2 (pronounced "Two-by-two" when you order it), while a burger with 3 meat patties and 1 slice of cheese would be a 3×1 (a "three-by-one").

As of August 2006, the largest burger that can be ordered is a 4x4. Only four slices of cheese maximum may be permitted on a single burger. That may be a Davis-specific rule, as somebody checked and officially the largest you can order is a 4x6. If you are wondering about ordering a 20×20, look at [WWW]this link to deter you. It is a photo essay of the terrible 20 patty journey. Or, to even better satisfy any curiosity you may have, the [WWW]100x100.

Double-Meat (a.k.a. 2×0) is a Double-Double with no cheese.

*

By definition a Double-Double automatically includes two slices of cheese; for two patties without the cheese, a double meat burger must be ordered.

The Flying Dutchman:

*

Two meat patties
*

two slices of cheese
*

no bun
*

Note: other condiments (including lettuce, tomato, spread, and onions) are not included unless you request them.
*

This is a great way to circumvent the burger size rules. i.e.: order a 4x4 and two Flying Dutchmans and you have essentially an 8x8

Grilled Cheese:

*

a sandwich with two slices of cheese
*

no meat
*

the grilled cheese comes stock, with spread, tomatoes, lettuce, and onions if you would like.
o

Like most orders, this can be combined with other styles such as animal style.
o

FYI: The grilled cheese used to be cooked on the side of the grill that was reserved for toasting buns (so that it wouldn't get contaminated from being cooked on the same surface used to cook meat). They now have two separate grills, one for meat, and the other for bun toasting. However, the bun grill is coated with a special non-stick surface that doesn't allow them to cook grilled cheeses on it any longer, and they have to cook them on the same surface as the meat.

Wish Burger or Veggie Burger:

*

A sandwich containing only vegetables, and no meat or cheese.
*

"Wish burger" is a reference to [wikipedia]Rubber Biscuit, which was a massive cult hit due to [wikipedia]Dan Aykroyd's performance of it as [wikipedia]Elwood Blues. The song is a lament about not having enough money for food, and going hungry. The majority of the lyrics are nonsensical vocal sounds, with one of the four actual lines being: "Have you ever heard of a wish sandwich? A wish sandwich is the kind of a sandwich where you have two slices of bread and you — hum hum hum hum — wish you had some meat!"

Burger Options

Mustard Grilled patty spread with mustard, then cooked.

Chopped Chilis adds some jalapenos to the bottom of your burger.

Mustard and/or ketchup can be substituted for the spread. Only designates no spread. Cashiers may ask if you want ketchup or mustard instead.

No-salt has no salt added to the the patties. Once you add the condiments and cheese, you don't need the extra salt anyway and you can leave without feeling like a dried-out-but-satisfied lump.

Extra toasted bun/lightly toasted bun/untoasted bun. The bun come toasted by default, but you can ask to have the level of toastyness varied. The buns are toasted to add some rigidity to the burger, as an untoasted bun is flimsy under the weight of all the meat/cheese/condiments. This also prevents sauces and toppings from excessively soaking into the bun, thereby avoiding the last-bites-are-soggy problem. This needs to be the first modification requested, based on keystroke order into the register.

Extra tomatoes, extra lettuce, extra onion You can ask for all of these at no extra charge. They'll really fill out your burger and make it a more balanced meal. Especially if you're a veggie fan. I find extra raw onions to be a bit much, though. You can also ask for both raw and grilled onions.
Custom Fries

*

Fries well-done are extra crispy fries.
*

Fries light well are a little more done than regular fries, but not as crispy or greasy as the well-done fries.
*

Fries lite are fries that have been cooked less than normal.
*

Fries animal style include two slices of melted cheese, grilled onions, and spread as toppings. You'll need a fork to eat them.
*

Cheese Fries are fries with one or two slices of melted cheese.
*

Fries no-salt have no salt added to them.
*

Lemon fries you can make your own lemon fries—just grab a lemon slice from next to the ice tea machine, and squeeze it on your fries. It really livens things up.

Custom Drinks
Milk Shakes

*

A root beer float is a concoction made of half vanilla shake and half root beer soda. Be sure to specify whether you want it more creamy or soda-ey.
*

A neopolitan shake is a mixture of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavored shakes. If an order contains a shake of each flavor, this is called "Around the world."
*

Strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla can be combined in any way, ie, just chocolate and vanilla, chocolate-strawberry, etc.
*

You can ask for extra syrup in your shake (ie extra chocolate or strawberry) — not all employees know how to do this, but this option is available as of 9-05 in Davis
*

Large and extra large shakes are also available. The cup sizes for these shakes are one below soft drinks (i.e. a large shake is a medium soft drink cup, while an extra large shake is a large soft drink).

Other

*

Milk. 2% lowfat is your only option. Yaaknow, it's for da kids.

Side Items

These items are free:

*

Spread - good with fries
*

Side of pre-packaged jalapenos.
*

Water comes in a clear plastic cup to distinguish it from soda/shake cups.
*

Creative Lemonade. Take your water cup, squeeze several free lemon wedges in, add a few free packets of sugar, stir well to blend. Fresh and tasty!

When they offer chicken, fish, salads, and breakfast they will be in the same ball park. I like In-n-Out and when on the west coast or in Las Vegas I try and make time to stop by one. But I know going in my entree' selection is limited to some sort of hamburger.

I think that's great to see In&Out back in the NHRA. My first In&Out burger was at Irwindale Raceway in 1969. Man, there's nothing sweeter than the combined smell of burning rubber, nitromethane and In&Out burgers.   

Honestly though. I think their quality and taste has deteriorated in the last 5 years or so. Some say it's because of changes in the corporate structure since the plane crash.

In n' out is actually on the healthier side for fast food...not sure about the animal style fries though.

That's great how they are coming to DFW. Everybody there is going to crap their pants over In n' out. I heard a rumor some years back that they were expanding in DEN. I don't think that ever happened. Makes more sense to me considering they have locations in Utah as well as the SLC area.

Am I the only a.nutter Texan who doesn't like In-n-Out? Had it in Cali, including the one by LAX, and in Tempe, but it ain't all that.


I'm a Californian living in Georgia and I don't care for In-n-Out food. My kids love it, but I like Tommy's chili burgers much better.

Not really such a change in structure.
You're right. I should have said Corporate Officers. The structure is the same but they lost Rich Snyder, who was the companies President and also one of the V.P.s. My neighbor has worked for In&Out 28 yrs and he feels that the company has become more focused on numbers than quality or employee satisfaction.

not sure about the animal style fries though.
Whenever I feel my cholesterol level dropping, I 'll go to In&Out and pound down an order of those.

When I became vegetarian back in 1984, In&Out burgers were the toughest thing to quit eating. Someone told me about ordering a grilled cheese animal style and that saved me. You can also order a "Wish Burger" which is a burger without the meat.

BTW... You reminded me (as well as the post above) of another LA burger joint called Tommy's. Their Chili Burgers are a big cholesterol booster.

This is what I order at In-n-out: A cold,soggy Double Double.True story. I had one at LAX once and ordered it with extra pickles and they put all the pickles on the bottom bun. Needless to say it was just not good! Have not been back since,and just thinking about it makes me want to puke!

They need one in North Dakota!!!! Perhaps MSP? I can settle for that. White Castle, Jason's Deli and In-N-Out. Truly, the trinity of quick serve restaurants.


I have millions of more reasons to connect through DFW, now. Eight hour layover, anyone?

Southlake, Grapevine, Frisco, or Arlington are all much nicer places to build such an iconic business in cities that receive a large amount of tourism.

Right on... Smart move would be a location near the new Cowboy stadium.
Garland... I ain't drive over there to eat.

The meat has always been the big concern.

Since Tommy's is also a SoCal tradition, you are forgiven.

Five Guys

I wasn't that thrilled with Five Guys or Smashburger. Found Smashburger way too salty for my taste!

Glad Houston hasn't ranked the #1 fattest city in a while! Among the top 10 is better than #1!

I live 4 blocks away from the "Original Tommy's" in East LA. There is nothing better than Tommy's at 2am after going to local bars -- It's heaven. In N' Out can't touch it!

Original Tommy's IMHO is the best one too!

Yes indeed except your just more aware of what you just consumed whereas as 2am after Tommy's you'll end up passing out and not eating breakfast the next day.

Even if I did pass out, I'd most likely be up and aware that I ate there when I get severe heart burn at 4 in the morning.

With Tommy burger than can be inevitable. It depends in what kind of shape your in. Either way I highly recommend it to anybody even though it can be an acquired taste.
