Well I would not mind seeing In-N-Out Burger come to TX. They're presently in Arizona, Cali, and Nevada.

Fudruckers is nasty, I'd be more likely to go to BigZ. And if you want to keep Californian in California you've already lost the war. Not the battle, the war. All the people who have told me that they are dying for an In-n-Out here have been native Texans. GO figure.

Always have to support the locals especially Fudruckers, cheesy janes, chris madrids, and even whataburger (only naming a few but they have great potential).

But if you all really really really really want to see IN n OUT here in TEXAS, it is imperative to give Krystal and Fatburger some more revenues (eat their more) because when these East coast and West coast burger joints can't make the buck in Texas, there is no reason for their competitors to waste the investment as well....

IMHO, if IN n OUT opens in Dallas or Houston, you eventually see one here in San Antonio.

For those Steak n Shake lovers, you will probablly see a franchise opening within the next couple years.

My particular favorite burger in SA is Burger Boy on St. Mary's and Josephine.
Chris Madrids' second....and then Chesters.....all local mom and pops!

IN and OUT only has franchises in California, Arizona and Nevada right now. At least they're moving in this direction, right?

I just posted a comment in the other thread about a friend in the restaruant business who has actually inquired about opening a store in Texas. They weren't interested. I think we can change their minds. Anyone game?

We need to start a flood of mail from fans and FUTURE fans. Not just email....but snail mail.....or BOTH! So??? any feedback?

I personally never felt that IN n Out was that good. I did admire the work ethic of those kids that they hired though. imo, there are much better hamburgers in san antonio like whataburger, chris madrid's and chester's. but to each his own.

Default Whataburger???

Everyone keeps talking about Whataburger being "local/not a chain". I'm confused! We had it Phoenix when I was a kid (about a thousand years ago! ). Sure, it started in Corpus Christi, but there's now over 650 "stores" in 10 states. To me, that's a chain, too!

And seriously, even tho I no longer eat meat, I'd sure eat an In n' Out burger!!!

I have to mention Longhorn Cafe and Casbeers as other local places to get a good burger. Plus, Casbeers has ridiculously delicious enchiladas, as well as a full schedule of live music. It's across the street and up about a block from Chris Madrid's. In 09 there's Cheesy Janes, Billy T's and Order Up that I can think of off the top of my head. Plus, don't forget Jim's for when you want a burger at 2am.

Fuddruckers isn't local. They've been all over for ages.

Whataburger - yuck. It can't even compare!

There's a great burger joint off I-10 in the medical area, somewhere around Wurzbach (can't recall the name but excellent burgers). Sam's is good too.

Actually, Fud's is local...started right here in San Antonio, by Phil Romano (you know, Romano's Macaroni Grill?) but like all good things that start here (Rudy's, Macaroni, the Air Force) it has been franchised and spread all over the place, making it not "special" or unique to SoTX.
