With, thanks to Jesus and a woman openly weeping about the beauty of her burger, In-N-Out opened two restaurants in Frisco and Allen, Texas, yesterday. The burger joint out of California took the Dallas area by storm with die-hards camping out in tents overnight, just to be the first to get their hands on a Double-Double.
Over at The Dallas Observer's City of Ate, former Pitch editor Joe Tone shared five tips "for enjoying your maiden meat voyage." To see tears of joy and one man's determination to "knock 'em out," click through for a video of the Frisco opening from The Dallas Morning News.
Back in February, I theorized that In-N-Out could come to Kansas City because of the proximity of the new distribution center in the Dallas area. In-N-Out puts a 500-mile limit on store locations from its distribution center, and Kansas City is just a bit farther than that.
We've shown that we're burger eaters. Hell, we have a Whopper Bar. But we haven't shown that our patty passion extends to In-N-Out. Similar to Trader Joe's, there would likely need to be a demonstration from the market that In-N-Out is wanted. The Bring an In 'N Out Burger to Kansas City group on Facebook currently has one member -- Steve Cox -- the page's originator.
