In-N-Out Burger Opening at Firewheel Town Center in Garland, TX
Apartment Ninjas ^

Posted on 05/13/2011 10:40:23 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

In-N-Out, the cult California burger chain is finally making its way to Texas. The family owned business, which does not accept franchises, has been reluctant to expand beyond the West Coast…Until Now! In-N-Out has unveiled plans to open at the Firewheel Town Center in Garland, TX.

In-N-Out Burger truly is the cat’s meow, and best known for its not-so-secret basic menu and fresh, high-quality ingredients; it holds the cachet of Manhattan’s famed Shake Shack, with the efficiency of a McDonald’s. They cook your food as you’re ordering (I’ve seen it, wasted…in Vegas, animal-style), so you’re literally in and out.

I LOVE In-N-Out Burger! The one in Vegas on Tropicana is fun for people watching. We go to the branded store next door and buy gifts. I wish they would come east.

They are a family owned corporation. They started in Southern California about the same time as McDonalds. You can get whatever you want there, as long as it is a hamburger. Great food and all of the employees speak English.

“Whataburger is better.”

I was told that same thing by a Texan when I was on on a business trip several years ago. I drove along ways just to try it. Wow, what a let down. I was like Joe Biden, “Is this a joke?”

“In-N-Out, In-N-Out...that's what a hamburger's all about.”

Texans are going to love em’!

But you aren't a true In-N-Out aficionado until you order off the ‘secret menu’.

There are quite a few that are better (Five Guys, Fatburger, etc..).

But we're talking cheap and quick here. In that class, it's one of the best I can think of, maybe with Tommy's a close second.

No way. Not even close.

I've lived in both Texas and California. In-N-Out is the best.

In-and-Out burgers are the best of the chain burgers. Their employess can speak English as their primary language. I have not heard of their employees spitting in the food for purposes of expressing “rage” for being our slaves 150 years ago. Generally, their employess do not have the flag of a foreign country on their cars or tattoed on their person. Their places are clean. Their food tastes good and is reasonably priced. In short, the business should be a welcome addition to Texas life.

“with the efficiency of a McDonald’s”

These days, that’s not much of compliment.

You are correct.

First of all, the cooking process is entirely in view of the customers, so they can’t tamper with the food.

Secondly, they have a very strict hiring process. They pay well for a burger joint. The order takers have to be very intelligent and organized.

They are a great company with great quality food. And they have a great business model: burgers and fries. That’s it.

No chicken, no salads, etc. Just burgers.

I have tried so hard to like the In-n-Out burgers, but they just aren’t my cup of tea. Give me a Chick-fil-A any day.

Now, at In-n-Out you can get their fries topped with a really good ‘secret’ sauce and grilled onions. It’s on their secret menu.

John 3:16 on the bottom of every cup! That’s great! I can’t believe that someone hasn’t screamed that they have been offended, especially in California.

Makes me love their food that much more.

A series, honest prediction.

(posting this from California)

Within 5 years, In-N-Out will relocate from California to Texas.

In-and-Out famously pays their crews higher wages than the rest of the fast food chains, which means they are able to recruit and retain a better class of employee. Starting pay these days is $10/hr. The average fast food employee works someplace less than a year. The average In-and-Out employee stays over two, and their policy of training and promotion means that 80% of their managers started as crew.

And they do all this with the simplest menu of any fast food chain. They sell hamburgers, cheeseburgers, double hamburgers, double cheeseburgers, fries, shakes and soda. And that's it.

In other words...

Simpler product line.

Better products.

Better employees.

Formula almost always works.

The simplicity of the menu is part of their success. McDonald’s, for example, has branched out into gourmet coffee and chicken sandwiches and other things. They don’t do these other things very well. And by comparison, McD’s food isn’t the greatest to start with.

I’ve heard we’re supposed to boycott Chik-Fill-A (sp?) because they support traditional marriage. Just saying.... Can a boycott of In and Out be far behind, if they have John 3:16 on every cup?

Separation of burgers and state, anyone???????

No matter, liberal outrage will spew forth at some point against In and Out.

YES!!!!!!

The one thing I was sure I would miss when I move from California to Texas was In-N-Out!!!

If you haven’t had an In-N-Out double double (or triple triple when I am a little hungrier than usual), you have NOT had a burger!

I've eaten IN and OUT burgers on the same day I ate 5 GUYS burgers (jetting from San Diego to Washington DC).

They are different, but the same ~ all the best. Can't get better.

My favorite IN and OUT is right there with Vista and Oceanside meet. My favorite 5 GUYS is one of the originals just down the street.

The fries are different though. IN and OUT fixes a broad cross section version of the McDonald's stuff. 5 GUYS makes these traditional size fresh oil fried versions.

Plus 5 GUYS has always served mushrooms.

It's good that IN and OUT is now 2.5 hours closer!

Believe it or not, it comes close.

There is a whole “not on the menu”-speik (such as “triple triple,” “animal style,” etc.) and the fact it has always been family owned, doesn’t publish its financials, hasn’t changed their “official” menu darn near since inception, won’t franchise, insists on fresh ingredients, exposes the making to the eyes of the public, etc. makes it pretty close.

My little brother moved to TN and when he is back in town (Los Angeles) he plans his entire visit around In-N-Out.

Family owned for over 60 years. Fresh baked buns every day. Only just cut fresh potatoes used for their fries. Fresh, not frozen beef burgers. And the friendliest staff you could ever hire. Good attitudes and service with a smile. Their managers have a fantastic compensation package and are paid well for a reason. And they are paid to hire to the In-N-Out standard and uphold the quality of the food and the service.

And the scripture is just awesome!:)

I tried 2 different 5 Guys and I thought it was of average taste and way too expensive.

On the scale, In-N-Out is a 10, Whattaburger is a 7, 5 Guys is a 5. Oh, Tommy’s (also a So. Cal. icon) is a 8.5. Carl’s/Hardees is a 6.5

I prefer to compare only “name locations” ~ you can always find a bad hamburger somewhere ~ but some shops never let that happen. The two I compared are THE BEST.
