I live in Colorado, orginally from California. I would travel 30 minutes just to have and In and Out burger. I would love to see a franchise in Denver. I would love invest in a franchise if I could just to have one in Denver.

So there's an In-N-Out thread in just about every Texas subforum now, right?

And we get upset when they make fun of our state for being fat.

What is San Antonio going to get first?
A NFL team or an In-and-Out?

Based on this article, In-and-Out will be first

I'm definitely NOT interest in bringing In-N-Out to San Antonio. They should stay on the west coast where they rightfully belong. That's the point of having a private chain restaurant. It makes it special and unique to their locale. Just like Whataburger used to be unique to Texas until it expanded to southern regions and the midwest to a degree. It should have stayed down south in Texas. Yeah, sure they make more money but the originality is gone. If I want to try In-N-Out, I want to be visiting the place of it's origins. Not a different state. I say an absolute "no" to a In-N-Out in SA. We need to support and invest in the private chains and mom-n-pop restaurants already here.

Dallas/Ft Worth is the capital of chain eateries, making 1604 here in San Antonio look like 100% fine dining. I'm not shocked that I&O went here, especially as the area also has the deep pockets to keep the location packed for years to come.

Here are my feelings on the issue, courtesy of D Magazine:

I have to admit there is some truth in that article. I lived in Long Beach/ OC area in my 20s and loved I&O. I work in Phoenix now and went to the one in Tempe not the same, burger scuked, fries worthless, service nonexistent, whole place was greasy. I thought maybe it was just that one but same experience in Prescott. Maybe Im just getting older (much older)

Someone knew what they were talking about. Your sources seemed to be legit.
