In-N-Out Burger heads to Dallas
Orange County Register ^ | 05-27-10 01:30 PM | Unknown

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).

Woohoo!

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!

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.

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.

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.

5 Guys was MUCH better five or six years ago, then they started expanding like crazy and the quality went with it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"...Tommy’s and Fatburger."

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.

LOL!

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.

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.
