Posted on 06/02/2010 9:36:45 AM PDT by Ro_Thunder
Appropriately revered west coast burger chain In-N-Out Burger is making an unprecedented expansion into Dallas, Texas.
The chain has infamously not expanded beyond the Western states of California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, as In-N-Out trucks in its meat from a central facility and has resisted reorganizing that structure in order to accomodate farther reaching locations (for a visual explanation of the process, see this graphic at the Orange County Register).

Houston's got a Five Guys, and we've got the best of the South (What-A-burger). If they're building the processing facility in Dallas, then restaurants could be in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas easy enough.
Now - we just need Fatburger!
Fletch DOES live!
In-N-Out Burger might be the best thing to come out of California. It ranks right up there with Rubio’s fish tacos.
NOW I can move to Dallas!
In-n-Out is one of the biggest holds So Cal has on me. I can give up Tommy’s burgers (but just barely).
What A Burger is great, from what I remember (last had one 25 years ago). In N Out is great. You’ll love having them there.
“Now - we just need Fatburger!”
The Big Fat Deal will get you through anything...
Went to my first 5 Guys the other day (here in Richmond, VA).
It sucked. Not even as good as Carls Jr./Hardee’s (much less In ‘n Out) and extremely expensive.
Gag.. With places in Dallas like Jucy’s, Twisted Root, Jakes, and Chips, why would anyone choose some fast food joint?
All we need after this is White Castle, and we’ll have burger nirvana. I know they tried Krystal here, and it failed, but comparing them to WC is like comparing flea market paintings to the Hudson River School.
in and out burgers are over-rated.
however, men like the name.
Woo-hoo. Sadly the Observer said Garland was the first, most likely site. Garland? Please head to the west side of the Metromess!!!
5 Guys was MUCH better five or six years ago, then they started expanding like crazy and the quality went with it.
Philistine! Heathen! IIINNFIDEL!
Apparently, In-N-Out Burgers has realized the same thing that a lot of us ex-SoCal folks have. I made my move from L.A. to Dallas four years ago.
North Texas is where it’s at, baby.
Yeah, it’s going in at the hoity-toity Firewheel outdoor mall.
Dang, ya just had to go and remind me. I really miss Tommy's and Fatburger.
What-A-Burger must be shaking in their boots.
I have never understood the big deal about In-n-Out.
Tommy burgers on the other hand...but only the original one on Beverly and Rampart...all of the franchise ones are worthless.
Just go over to Mesquite and try a Jucy’s burger and you’ll never go back to a chain.
Man this brings back memories. I remember when I was living in Las Vegas, I’d go eat at this In-N-Out Burger place down the block from my work at least once a week.
I have tried and tried to fall in love with In-and-Out, but I just don’t like their food. Every time I say, “Maybe this time I will like it.” With the exception of their sauce (kind of a 1000 Island dressing), I doubt I’ll ever go back.
Currently, we’re on a big Chick-fil-A kick.
>>Dang, ya just had to go and remind me. I really miss Tommy’s and Fatburger.<<
I have one of each a few blocks from home (and an In-n-Out). The wife says when we move to Dallas she will miss the convenience more than anythning.
Then I show her the sales tax (9.5%) on our last purchase of anything and I think the feeling passes quickly.
Thank you for pointing to the mobile version of the article. The ads on the full version of the article are repulsive.
About twenty-seven years ago, driving along the PCH I saw an In-N-Out Burger bumper sticker on a pick-up, the B and R on burger erased, In-N-Out Urge, LOLOL!!!
OMG! Yer killin me!
You're gonna make me come up with some excuse to visit the folks back home, just so I can enjoy some of that good food. LOL
In-N-Out is awesome. Every time I have gone there it is rocking with customers, and rocking with young and bright people who work there. I’m talking at least 20 employees who are, to a man, working hard and happy. They get paid well, but they work hard, and they all speak English and all know how to speak to a customer. Not to mention, the Double-Double with extra grilled onions.... MMMMMMmmmmmMMMMM!
Braums and In and Out seem to be a lot alike in one respect. A desire to exercise quality control. Everytime I pass through Texas/Oklahoma/Arkansas I make it a point to eat at Braums.
When my wife and I first heard the news, we said the same thing. Garland?
Whoever the heck is doing their site surveys oughta be fired.
If it makes you feel any better, I just had BBQ from the one place in Richmond that has terrible BBQ (Bill’s in Midlothian) — dry and tasteless.
Tommy's is for girls. Real men eat at Oki-Dog at least twice a week!
Right there with Sonic and Scotty P’s already. Sonic is kind of in the middle and SP’s is on the far west side near 78. Sonic is a decent chain. Scotty P’s is family-owned and ROCKs, imho.
I like In-n-Out, too. Hope they put it on the far east side of the mall for balance.
That is a work of art!
Sucks that they aren’t considering San Antonio - oh well, will have to settle for Whataburger, Culvers, Bobby J’s, and Chris Madrids.
Well, I almost never get down to Midlothian, so I’ll probably never have the honor of being disappointed with Bill’s BBQ.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been in the financial condition to widely sample the various restaurants in North Texas since I’ve been here. I’m working on changing that, though.
Not all of us have a pocket that can easily handle the prices of some of the better joints. Hell, it costs me $30 just to feed the family at McDonald's.
It is indeed. Lord how I miss it.
Five Guys is the Best. Better than In-n-out...
You know what you're talking about, friend. I can still remember the Japanese dude they had there in the mid-seventies who flipped burgers like a Kung-Fu artist.
Best damn burgers I ever ate.
however, men like the name.
I never heard of them before I say a lesbian wearing an In-N-Out Burger T-shirt.
OK, if we send you an In-N-Out, I want a Waffle House in return.
Their hamburgers are quite similar to Whataburgers. The big difference is Whataburger has lots of additional items added to their menus over the years while In-N-Out Burger has a stripped down menu more like Whataburger’s original menu.
If you have Five Guys, you don’t need another burger joint.
This had to be bad management. Nothing compares to Five Guys here.
I have one of each a few blocks from home (and an In-n-Out).
When I lived in Sunland, I had an In-N-Out and a Tommy's close by. Had to go all the way to Sunset and Vermont for Fatburger's, though.
Yeah, I've heard that the sales tax had gone up. I know that it's 9.75% in Burbank now. That's just outrageous.
I would agree that their fries are overrated and often overcooked in my opinion, but their burgers are good.
When I was a starving musician, my bandmates and I would eat at Oki Dog at least three times a week. You couldn't get so much food for so little money anywhere else in Hollywood.
But, that stuff is deadly. It's the crack cocaine of fast food.
Five Guys is OK - they just opened a few in San Antonio. Prefer Bobby J’s and Chris Madrids though and Whataburger as well depending on the location.
Used to love how guys would cut a few letters out of their bumper stickers and reassemble (BTW- no longer available).
In-N-Out Burger > In-N-Out urge
You would be hard pressed to see such a wide variety of clientele at any other fast food joint in LA.
Nearly all found Oki-Dog through inebriated hunger or a dare.
