Hi all,

You may remember the thread where I broke the news about In-N-Out coming to Texas/Dallas (see In-N-Out Burger is coming to Texas). I can now, through the same type of sources, say the same about Houston.

Over the weekend, while chatting with In-N-Out employees in Dallas, I was able to confirm that In-N-Out will be in Houston in 2013. Apparently, the Dallas managers have started talking to employees about moving to Houston next year to open stores.

While that alone might not be sufficient evidence for confirmation, I think it becomes more than sufficient when you combine it with the way we found out about Dallas a couple of years ago (see thread linked above). The easiest way to find out that In-N-Out will be in an area is for employees to let you know they've been asked to move.

Anyway, I was excited and thought I'd pass the news along.

Too late--they lost their first mover advantage by opening in Dallas. Meanwhile Carl's Jr. is now open (and expanding).

Can't wait for White Castle, a truly unique product!

There was a White Castle not too long ago (maybe 3 years) along 1960. I don't know if it's still there. But I'm pretty sure it's gone.

I hate fast food burgers. Just not worth the calories. I think Pappa's Burgers and a few other single owned joints are worth the splurge....every once and a great while.

That was a Crystal's. I think the closest White Castle to Houston is in Memphis so that would be a big move for them to come here.
