In-N-Out Burger Finally Comes To North Texas

By Marianne Martinez, CBS 11 News

FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) – The wait is finally over for burger lovers across North Texas.

The famed In-N-Out Burger opens Wednesday morning in Frisco (2800 Preston Road) and Allen (190 East Stacy Road). The fast food chain has already reached a cult-like popularity on the west coast, and people have been lining up outside of the building for days to be among the restaurant’s first customers.

“In-N-Out is not just about the burger. It’s about the lifestyle,” said Danielle Delnnocentes. “It’s a Southern California tradition. I grew up in Southern California, since I was 18 years old. I have missed it. I have waited almost eight years for this opening day, and I am here. And I can’t wait.”

By the end of the summer, five more In-N-Out Burger locations will open across North Texas – in Arlington, Irving, Fort Worth and Dallas. Spokespeople with In-N-Out Burger said that Texas was the perfect place to expand their business. The company has long-term plans to open new locations all over the state.

Of course, new locations also means new jobs for Texas, both at the restaurants and at a distribution plant the company has built in Dallas. “We pay $10 an hour to start, way above minimum wage,” said Carl Van Fleet, In-N-Out Burger’s vice president of planning and development. “Part of our commitment we’ve made to not only take care of our customers, but take care of our associates.”

“We’ve got jobs available still at these two restaurants,” added Van Fleet.

    Sounds good..

    Of course! Texas is the best place for this famed hamburger joint!! We Texans love a good, hearty burger and I’m sure the lines will be out the door, until, of course, the bodies are too large to fit through the door 😉

    I havwe to ask…What the he11 is that nasty looking stuff in the photo? Did someone barf on their cheesy fries?

    1. Cheeseman says:

      That’s referred to as “animal style” – onions and Thousand Island Dressing – for all you newbies.

      1. Todd says:

        still gross and I will not eat something that looks like vomit !

    2. KC says:

      I agree …that looks nasty!!!

      1. CitySlicker says:

        Mexican food looks like diarrhea. Do you eat that?

  4. Nonya says:

    Gumby, it’s called Animal style. I don’t get that on my fries but it’s available. For a chain, it is one of the best burgers around. It’s as close as you can get to a hole in the wall place and the prices are pretty darn good. It wasn’t too bad of a line @ the Frisco location.

    1. BurgerJim says:

      Does it beat a #5 at Kellers (Double Meat/Double Cheese on their own specially made buns? ???

    2. Rex says:

      Griff’s in Irving is better and 1/3rd of the price.

  5. Brenda says:

    Definitely need one in the Weatherford, TX area. Business is booming out there.

  6. Cheeseman says:

    I first had an In-N-Out Burger when visiting my aunt and uncle in SoCal many years ago. The burgers are insane and make Kincaid’s and Love Shack look like amateurs. This to me is like the second coming of Christ. I’ll be eating there thrice weekly for sure.

  7. Bill says:

    In-n-out burgers aren’t big and hearty like the ones served at Five Guys but In-n-out definitely has the double double unmatched 🙂

  8. Cheeseman says:

    The field reporter, Marianne Martinez, was a perfect choice – she’s a combo of 45 IQ Valley Girl and Asian reporter Tricia Takanawa (Family Guy). Any other report would have been laughable hearing her cadence and vapid commentary, but this piece was PERFECT for her. Relish it, baby, for this is about as far as you’ll go in this business.

  9. Neil Zirconia says:

    I wish I could sit outside an In-N-Out Burger while drawing welfare and unemployment, but you see, I am actually LOOKING for work 10-16 hours a day and hoping to pull away from the government’s teat soon. Hey, here’s an idea, you lumps – especially the loser waiting since Monday – they pay $10 an hour or more. APPLY INSIDE, IDIOTS!

  11. Quagmire says:

    I love their food, but the picture of those animal style fried reminds me of the two girls and a cup video. I think I’ll stick to plain fries, or cheese fries, from now on.

  12. Quagmire says:

    Fries, not fried. Sorry. I’m not Mavis Beacon.

  13. UNT RTVF says:

    LOL @ the field reporter comment. Yes, make sure it’s on your demo reel.

  14. BurgerJim says:

    With all the hoop-la I have heard, it better beat a Number 5 at Keller’s on Harry Hines and a ice cold Corona delivered right to my car window ! Keller’s was started when the IN&OUT burger wasn’t even a dream ! We grade our burgers different here in Texas ! If it is truely good, it will stay on, else if it is a fad, like some of the California Pizza Kitchens that have closed up, the same fate lies with them !

  15. Frederick Larrabee says:

    Burger Jim, I will have to say your comment is spot on. Forget that the car hops are old bags with meth issues, pot bellies, and saggy appendages, the burgers do in fact kick a-s there. It’s been a LONG TIME since I’ve been there. I think I’ll drive from FW today in all this rain to reacquaint myself with Keller’s greatness.!

  16. Kim Dar says:

    That picture needs to be removed from the headline. That is just gross looking. One of the girls I work with is from California and she said their burgers are really good, but she didn’t know what the heck that picture was except that maybe someone threw up on some cheese fries. You really need to show something else besides whatever the heck those are. Made me sick at my stomach.

    1. Cheeseman says:

      Your friend is from California and she has no idea what animal style fries look like from In-N-Out Burger?! SERIOUSLY? REALLY?! What is she, some sort of vegan from Marin County? Jesus Christ, I’m a TEXAN, and I know what those fries are! Get lost, you moron!

      1. Rick says:

        you are a fat moron

    2. Quagmire says:

      Yes, you are a moron, but you do have a valid point. SHOW A PICTURE OF A BURGER! That’s what they’re famous for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Quagmire says:

        OK, I’ll be more kind, Kim Dar (what is that, a character from Star Wars?) . Maybe your friend is the moron. You’re a quasi-moron for commenting, though.

  17. Neil Zirconia says:

    That reporter isn’t a member of Mensa, is she? LOL. CBS 11, you should actually be embarrassed for having such a airhead reporting for your affiliate. Ya, know? I mean, totally. FER SURE! Jeeeesus, what a bimbo.

  18. God says:

    OH MY GOD. Priorities, people! Look at this giant cavalcade of losers camping out for the opening of a burger restaurant! This is why you are strapped with debt, show no ambition, and are laughed at by your neighbors and co-workers (assuming you’re employed). LOL. What a giant lot of losers! Can you imagine seeing this endless parade of human debris and actually hearing their insane “reasoning” for doing what they do?! Show some PRIDE, you lowlife trash!

    1. Dubba Double says:

      Some peeps just know FOOD! We went and ate, didn’t wait ll day, have employment and are relieved that we “lowlife trash” are not associated with someone such as yourself. Maybe if you were actually working, you would not have the time to pass judgment on others. Hypocrite!

  19. God says:

    By the way, IDIOT, I’m “wasting time” during my late lunch at my desk AT WORK! Fat hayseed.

  20. Juana says:

    OMG, who BARFED on those fries?!?! LOL

  21. Hemroidious says:

    Looks like that burger and fries already went in and came out. Gross!

  22. KiethStone says:

    Hemroidious, try to show some class.

    1. Moonbeam says:

      Yeah, show some class when speaking about a greasy burger joint!

  23. Todd says:

    If that picture of the fries with vomit on them is any indication of what their food taste like then NO THANK YOU !

  24. SAM says:

    1 order of barf fries please ! GROSSSSSSSSSS

  25. Marilyn says:

    sounds good I will have to try…

  26. Cheryl says:

    I ate at in-n-out in California. That was the most paper thin patty I have ever had on a “burger” if you can call a paper thin patty stacked up with lettuce and some sweet sauce a burger. We don’t need it. It’s no Whataburger.

    1. Frederick Larrabee says:

      Whataburger RULES. Great burgers, biscuits and gravy for breakfast (pass on the coffee), chicken tenders with Texas Toast and gravy – OH YEAH.

    2. burger diet says:

      whataburger will fall. its overpriced and dried out, please!

  27. DOWNTOWN says:

    I don’t think this is what journalism is about.

  28. Wendy Marthers says:

    Hey looking to maybe open an in n out in Keller please let me me know the details asap!

    1. Frederick Larrabee says:

      Yeah, like you have the capital. LOL.

  29. Frederick Larrabee says:

    Change that picture you DOLTS! We want to see a BURGER or some CHEESE FRIES without the “animal style” option!

  30. KC says:


  31. mikester says:
