In and Out Burger Allen, Texas Opening

Posted by    |    May 10th, 2011 at 5:24 pm

For all of you In and Out Burger Fans in Allen, wait no longer!

On Wednesday May 11th 2011 at approximately 10:30am, In and Out Burger will open its doors for double-double and animal style fanatics.  My family enjoyed a meal tonight at The Olive Garden, which is next to the new In and Out Burger, and you could see a steady stream of cars driving by taking pics, etc.

I noticed the Channel 8 van parked nearby and went over to talk to Steve Stoler about the opening.  He said, “People in North Texas find stories like the opening of an In and Out a very interesting topic.”  He was reporting live on the six o clock news.

There also was a security guard outside the doors pacing to make sure people didn’t line up for the opening.  Tonight was family night and the workers were coming out in droves with big smiles on their faces and their new uniforms and hats.

The question is . . . “Who will be the first person in Texas to eat an In and Out burger?”
