What they really need is a Shake Shack! That would do super well down in Olmos Basin somewhere or down Blanco near NSM.

Also, why spend all that money tearing down a massive multi-story building for a burger joint?

Actually, it sounds like there will be more going on around the site than just the 'in and out burger'. Other restaurants and a new hotel. Guess, they are all sharing in the expenses. This is not going to be open for a long, long time. Too bad.., I am craving one NOW!

First off, it's a single developer who is developing the property. He will raze the building then build on it.

Second, you do know there will be more than one In and Out in San Antonio and more than likely this location won't be the "first" to open. It's literally just the second location to be announced.

Third, it doesn't take love to demo a building then construct a fast food restaurant. 7-8 months at the most.

Windcrest = someplace I'd never live, even if you paid me

Frankly, I don't want to live near anywhere they'd put an In & Out. It attracts too much transience and far too many silly folks clogging up the area for a hamburger.

It will take 3-6 months just to get through all the board meetings, approvals and permits. We'll see an in and out burger at that location in mid-late 2015

i do not think this burger joint is going draw a 'wrong' crowd. It will be popular for locals to come and try it out. Then when they realize it tastes like a 'whataburger'.., this location will close within a few years or less as the other locations thrive on.

In NYC and now London.., Shake Shack burgers are the craze. $3.45 for a small burger.., tastes just like a Whataburger.. but to these bozos up here who are used to paying at least $15 for a decent burger.., they can not get enough of them. Then they sell you a thick arse milk shake in a coffee mug sized paper cup.. for over $5. Fries are also around $5 and are those thick grease laiden type.., not my style at all.

We ate at a Shake Shack in Manhattan and it was nothing special in my opinion. I've had way better burgers at several local joints.

There are TONS more californians in Austin. I just had an In n Out today. As I said before, their burgers are VERY consistent from store to store. I cannot say the same for Whataburger. That proposed building site already has a good number of beggars that ask for $$. Everytime that I gas up at the Valero on Walzem & 35, someone always will ask me for some $$.
