In-n-Out Burger is Coming to Texas!

  1. yay! PTerrys is ok, but nothing beats InNOut!

    1. I know I'm in the minority, but I think In-n-Out is overrated. Burgers are eh. Fries are eh. Couldn't really understand southern cal's obsession with that place when I lived in Cali. It's supposed to open in Garland (for those who don't want to click on the link) which is a weird place to open, I think. When I think popular parts of Dallas, Garland doesn't exactly pop into my mind.

        1. When I visited relatives in CA last year I made it a point to go to an In-n-Out to see what all the buzz was about from homesick Californians in Austin. It was ok, nothing special.

          Meanwhile, my relatives said they'd trade every In-n-Out to get one Whataburger nearby.

              This. It seems a lot of it is nostalgia for stuff 'back home'.

              I will say though, that I always hit up an In-N-Out at least once if I am in California. I think the burgers are good, and the food in general is fresh, especially compared to other fast food joints. Same reason I like P-Terrys here, reasonably fresh food, kept simple and cheap. Plus they have Maine root beer on fountain.

              Best burger ever? Hardly. Too many burger types and too many different burger 'moods' to claim one purveyor as superior to the rest. Same with pizza.

          2. I'm not quite on the bandwagon, but since there's this existing thread, figured some people might appreciate the update
