In-N-Out Burger Expands to Dallas, Texas Area

In-N-Out Burger Affirms It's Expanding — to Texas

Is In-N-Out, the cult California burger chain lauded by the likes of David Chang and Peter Meehan, finally becoming a national standby? Well, while the hamburger chain isn't expanding to the Eastern Seaboard just yet — it has unveiled plans to open in Texas.

D Magazine first broke the news that In-N-Out would be opening its first Lone Star location in Garland, a suburb of Dallas. The Irvine, CA-based fast food chain is known for its not-so-secret basic menu and fresh, high-quality ingredients; it holds the cachet of Manhattan's famed Shake Shack, only with the efficiency of a McDonald's. Yet the family-owned business, which doesn't even accept franchisees, has been reluctant to expand beyond the West Coast. According to Carl Van Fleet, In-N-Out's Vice President of Planning and Development, the company is building a new meat facility to service its Texas locations.

Van Fleet also told Eater that while opening dates have yet to be determined, "We continue to work on a number of site opportunities in the DFW market." I'm shocked that the chain is expanding to Texas, although I think Whataburger could use some competition. What do you think of In-N-Out?
