Get in line early, it’s going to be packed.
Enjoy the Double Double and Choc Shake.
My mouth is watering already. No In-n-Out in Alaska :-(
In-N-Out is also coming to Arlington (Parks Mall area by the IHOP) by years end. Bring it...I’m ready for my Double-Double since leaving Kalifornia in ‘84.
Why isn’t this in breaking news?
Yeah, we probably won’t get there until around 5:00 p.m. Hopefully the line will be down but probably it won’t be since that when so many people will be there for dinner.
Reading a great book about the history of IN N OUT burger. Truly an amazing classic American success story, but with some tragedy since the 2 sons are passed away too. One in a company jet crash, the other from a prescription drug O.D.
So the family is all gone. Mom, Dad, and 2 sons. But what a legacy. They started in 1948 and have only added one item to their menu in all that time.....7/up. A fascinating book about this IN N OUT’s history: http://www.amazon.com/-N-Out-Burger-Behind-—Counter-Fast-Food/dp/0061346721/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1305029315&sr=1-1
All the years I have eaten at IN N OUT, since around 1968 when they put up a location in Hacienda Heights, CA just 3 blocks from where I grew up.........Never had a double double. IN N OUT is the ONLY burger joint I get a cheeseburger. I typically only get a regular hamburger at 5 guys or Carl’s Jr.
But that IN N OUT cheeseburger seems to be perfection. The book says PGA Phil Mickelson eats at IN N OUT so often, the sports reporters tell him maybe he should ease up on the “double doubles” when he’s in a slump.
The Book also says Bob Hope had an IN N OUT burger once, and from then on, he enjoyed it so much, he had to have one weekly. When they put an IN N OUT near his Toluca Lake home in North Hollywood, Hope loved to drive thru and chat with the employees.
We were in Bonaire and ate at a Whataburger. The bread was **delicious**!! The bread was chewy on the outside and fresh and soft on the inside. I was excited to try Whataburger when we returned to the states, but I was disappointed. It was the same pasty bread used by all the chains. It must be that in Bonaire, being a tiny island, they must get their bread from a local bakery.
Where is Bonaire?
Actually, ironically, some people say it is the IN N OUT Bun that helps make it such a quality burger. Of course the bun is the first thing that we bite into so it’s important. And IN N OUT buns, according to their wrappers on the burgers..the buns are preservative free and they use only “real sponge dough.”
Here are some other tidbits about IN N OUT:
IN N OUT used only Real Ice Cream in their shakes. No preservatives.
5. Since 1948, IN N OUT Fries are prepared in cholesterol free trans fat free vegetable oil. Peeled each day fresh. They use Kennebec potatoes.
6. IN N OUT buns are made with NO preservatives and using real sponge dough.
7. IN N OUT hand leafs it’s lettuce everyday.
Those lucky bastards....
I miss In N Out Burgers. Good stuff.
We had a place here in Denver called, “Walk In Burgers.” They were great, but just closed last month.
Well..That is true, but it still the same type of bun found in the other chains. It has the texture of the typical Wonder Bread roll.
It is a small island near Aruba. My husband and I windsurf.
And Carls Jr is opening in Texas too — great for all those who moved east. Now in return, if Black Eyed Pea would open here in Southern California, this expat Texan would be happy!
Yes, actually, Carl’s Jr has been open here in Texas for a few months now. And when they had their grand opening in Houston, Carl’s said it was their biggest opening in company history.
The one here in Lewisville is doing very well. At night, the line in the drive thru is busy.
Karl Karcher and Harry and Esther Snyder of IN N OUT became life long friends after Harry went to see Karl to ask him about starting a burger joint. The Snyders and Karchers were good people.....giving substantially to various charities and causes. All gone now. Good people.
First locations east of the Rockies? I think so.
Always looking for a nice vacation spot. We’ve been to St Barts and St Lucia.
Looked at going to Aruba until Natallie Holloway... Bonaire might be a good substitute.
Any good resorts on the island?
As a DaLlasite/Texam idont like the idea of these California businesses and expats moving here.
These burger joints face stiff competiton from Whataburger, which takes a ton of pride in its Texas’ roots and all of the fantastic steak joints that can be found on just about every corner here.
Yes first location that is outside their maximum 500 mile range. What makes Texas significant is IN N OUT had to find a meat processing and distribution plant since they do not freeze their meat and use only the best and freshest. So they have contracted with a Texas family run meat processing company however, I believe in time, they will build their own meat processing butcher plant.
This positions them to further expand farther east, west, and even in the middle states I suppose.
A big move for them since currently, all locations are within distance where the meat is trucked but not frozen. Including Utah.
Which is better-In and Out or Five Guys?
Well,the competition thing might be tough, but if you knew anything about In-And-Out Burger, you’d know they’re anything but “ex-pats”. They’re owned by solid Christians and run an organization that has wonderful integrity. They’re a shining example of what America is all about.
Texans can be very stubborn. I have found that mentality here. Some are even comparing Whattaburger to IN N OUT and anyone who has had the 2 know, Whattabuger is not even in the same league.
I believe in the end, quality will win out. And of course, economics. My sister in law who runs a JC Penny near the new IN N OUT burger lost 2 employees to IN N OUT. IN N OUT will provide good jobs, they pay higher than minimum wage and you can bet the Meat processing Plant scored big time.
As I said, for the most part, Texans are kind, nice, wonderful people and I think they will embrace quality. However, I have noticed that their a stubborn almost mean spirited attitude with some of the Texans I have met here since moving from CA.
When I Moved here from CA, I bought a new home, had a new floor put in, and a new pool. So most Texans are happy to have people with capital come in. But there are always those who seem unhappy, stubborn, or just plain unsociable and unwelcoming. But they are in the minority.
I’ve heard Bonaire is one of the best scuba diving locations on earth.
We have IAOB’s here, but I still prefer a Whataburger.
Well, you say that until you have a double double, fries and chocolate shake.
Then you'll never stay away. Trust me.
I would like to buy the franchise rights for Ohio, please.
Never had a Five Guys burger... have never seen a Five Guys restaurant. What region of the country are they?
Not bad, but it needs bacon.
Close, but my wife gives the edge to In-And-Out because of taste, she says.
LOL.......IN N OUT doesn’t franchise and never will. Family owned, the sole heiress is a 20 something old granddaughter, Lynsi Martinez. She’s publicity shy, she gets the whole company when she turns 35. Hopefully, it will never change. never add all the crap other places add......Whattaburger even sells Chorizo......LOL.
IN N OUT..the same since 1948.
Got ‘em out here in southeast Virginia.
Yeah, Five Guys excellent. Meat is excellent. Fresh, all very good. I rate them tied with Carl’s Jr. And Five guys has been a hit here in Texas too.
IN N OUT still number 1. Carl’s Jr. and Five Guys?....both excellent....”pick em”
Started in D.C. Metro area and rapidly expanding.
Since Phil was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis last year, he's actually had to become a vegetarian. I don't think it was a lifestyle choice, but rather necessary so that his treatments were maximally effective.
I've had an In n' Out burger once in my life, when I went to visit my uncle in Palm Springs. Indeed, it was an awesome burger. Luckily, I live in Central Ohio so I have access to a Thurman Burger. I'll console myself with that.
I think Carl's Jr's wastes their advertising dollars on stupid themes instead of focusing squarely on how GOOD their food is.
Did you have a problem with Chili's moving into CA? Boy, I sure didn't!
Waaaay back when, we used to go to the original Chili's near Dallas (on Greenville or Greenback lane, I think).....a run down hole-in-the-wall place with a gravel parking lot....but oh, so delicious!
I was so excited when they expanded but it's not even close to that original flavor!
Carls Jr ads turned me off when they had those sloppy, slurpy ads that turned my stomach listening to the actors take a bite.
I don’t want to need to do my laundry after eating at a burger joint.
We had an In-And-Out around the corner from us in CA - had to stop going: one order of cheeseburger, fries, and strawberry milkshake maxed out my calorie intake for the day.
IN N OUT has a distinctive taste. More like homemade.
I've only been to In-n-Out a few times, but I loved it and thought it was a lot better than Five Guys.
My wife and I went to visit the inlaws in CA. SHe introduced me to In and Out burgers in 2007. It is the first meal, and last meal before coming home. Double double? Oh yeah!
The ‘lettuce wraps’ are amazing too — you can get that instead of the bun.
We used to love In and Out and at at there when they had exactly ONE and no inside seating. It was fabulous. We just got back to Texas from a trip to California and ate at the In and Out in Stockton and it was not good at all. The order took a long time, the bread was dry, the meat blah. The Fries were really tasteless. I don’t know if it was just an anomoly or this one place or what. Five Guys is much better and Freddy’s is much, much better. Del Taco is still good though.
I’ve never been to an In N Out but I have been to a Five Guys. What a disappointment. It was horrible.
And Trader Joe’s is coming to Texas as well. West Coasters are crazy over that.
I think we should call them “In and Stuck” until the newness wears off. And until that time, I will be avoiding that entire area. It’s crowded enough at that particular location in Allen w/o I&O crazies lining up.
My sister lives in Burbank and when I’m not working in Alaska, I live in Redding.
Both In-N-Outs (NoCal and SoCal) = Excellent taste and fresh ingredients. I do have to wait at the one in Redding as that it the only In-N-Out within 200 miles so it’s ALWAYS packed.
I think you should report the crappy Stockton restaurant to corporate.
I’m tempted to drive to Frisco on Friday to get In and Out, but will probably wait till the Irving/Las Colinas one opens as it is closest for us. We live in Coppell and hubby works at The Four Seasons which is down the street from the In and Out being built right now. We are patently waiting to give it a try.
If it were possible to do so, my wife would live at Trader Joes. She loves the place.
