The first of two In-N-Out joints has opened in Meridian Idaho to great clamor. 2-hour waits were common when they opened. The second one nearer Boise and adjacent to the city's main mall is set to open in the near future.

We heard some rumors, but it seems to be semi-official today. Our Twin Falls, Idaho Outback Steak house, adjacent to the Snake River Canyon Bridge, and Visitor's Center (and Tesla Supercharger site) will come down and be replaced with a shiny new, In-N-Out Burger joint on the site. They say the plan is to be able to be able to accommodate up to 30 cars in the drive-through.

Details as this progresses- or anybody cares.

Dunno, Bill. Their expansion is closely related to their ability to supply fresh- NEVER frozen meat and spuds (duh!) That they opened a new route speaks volumes about their plans. They are already in SLC and environs, so it's not a stretch to consider that the population base (such as it is) and growth points to that area. I'll let you know if I hear.

And plenty of meat processors as well.
Maybe they'll source from the True West plant in Jerome and start serving American Wagyu burgers!!!

I was with a friend who ordered a "Double-Double"; he opened the wrapper to a hamburger with 4 beef patties plus I do not know what else. I have no idea what he was charged.

Usually, a "Double-Double" has two hamburger patties (have no idea why it is not just a "Double"), but no, this particular In-and-Out knew their multiplication tables and delivered a "Double (2) Double (2)" = 2 times 2 = 4 beef patties. I mean that bag of burgers was heavy!

It's double meat, double cheese. What he got was a 4 x 4 if it was 4 patties. I like a double double mustard grilled.

I have 3 within ten minutes of home.

When you posted a Double Double, I thought you were posting about a Tim Horton's coffee. The Canadian in me is showing.

The In-N-Out food truck is coming to the old folks home next week as part of two days of festivities celebrating the 5th anniversary of opening. Sadly chips for 300 people rather than fries!

Yesterday (June 12) about 9:30 pm, heading eastbound on I-82, just before Glenns Ferry I passed an In-N-Out truck (also eastbound).

Get ready for traffic to be all kinds of screwed up there.

The IN-N-Out near the Costco in St. George, Utah, is busy - stupidly busy - ALL the time. I don't think I've ever gone past when there WASN'T a line of cars wrapped bumper-to-bumper around the parking lot. It makes getting through there to the other stores kind of tricky. And nobody seems to mind. It also deters me from wanting to wait a half hour in line to grab a "quick" lunch.

I don't know what the fascination is. Sure, it's decent, especially compared to some other famous fast food places, but it's still just a hamburger. Animal style or not. :D

Yeah, I had that figured out too. That area is stupid busy already. This might tip the highway dept over to build another bridge across the Snake River Canyon. The existing one is right at the site of the new In-N-Out and runs close to capacity constantly, and if one lane is closed for maintenance, traffic will back up for miles. A new bridge is inevitable. They've had 'open houses' to show proposals of siting and the effect on the area.

Hard to imagine that a burger joint might be the key to unlock $million$ in funding for a highway project.

We already avoid that area like the plague.

I haven't had one since before COVID. I love In-N-Out but but my husband hates fast food joints. We have lots of In-N-Out around here and this thread got me thinking that maybe I can "make" my husband go next week.

The "fruit" of a booming economy. The Magic Valley has at times been that for me.

It was dark by time I got back on the plain after Glenns Ferry. I didn't need to see know I was in dairy country as I crossed Jerome County.

Ahhh, yes. 'Dairy-aire' Fortunately, most of it stays on the other side of the canyon. But then, we occasionally get the 'sweet' scent of the beet sugar factory. The trials and tribulations of living in an agriculture based locale. Chobani alone goes through almost 2 million lbs of milk a day, and it has to come from somewhere.

It is is very difficult to operate a dairy in a locale that gets a lot of rain. Most of industry that had been west of the Cascade Mountains has relocated eastward. Jerome has become a popular area.

I've always felt that In and Out follows the model that nightclubs do: Keep a line out the door to make people scramble to get their burger (or in the door to the club.) This is obviously not likely as they would be turning down gazillions of dollars each year by intentionally slowing down. It just seems to take so long for such a simple menu. It doesn't seem that hard to put in a few more grills, fryers and high schoolers to make the food a bit faster.

Love Raising Cane's. Cannot really eat it on my lifetime program, but sometimes I eat two of the chicken tenders and no fries. The sauce is so good.

We had lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse today, which is becoming one of our favorite lunch stops. Huge burger and fries for $9.99 between 12-4 PM. I had the steak salad, which also came with a side, and I chose broccoli. The broccoli was actually very good, but not much steak for $11.99. It was still wonderful.

During lunch, my SIL proceeded to tell us how much she hates In-N-Out. Likes Burger King and Wendy's better. I think In-N-Out is great, and all the grandkids love it too.

She also doesn't like the ride Small World, Disneyland in general, and of course she also hates Disney World. She has never been to a Disney park. Go figure. My SIL is just angry.

Speaking of traffic, we are just starting to get Dutch Brothers around here, it's a tiny kiosk like operation, but the lines were horrendous. They set up a cone course in the shopping center parking lot, but that filled and went up the street.

I haven't been, I do not partake of the high sugar coffee drinks. I did see people comment on the local buzz that they don't have plain coffee, it's all specialty drinks.

Mark Wahlberg just opened a high end Mexican restaurant here, he has branded tequila now, several stars are doing liquors. It's another place I won't visit, we have a local dive that has good home style Mexican and $3 margaritas on Mondays.

Wow! Mark Wahlberg really stays busy! The brothers already have Wahlburgers. I knew about the Tequila. (Yes, celebrity-branded liquor is big!). Mark also has a sneaker & athletic wear line, Municipal. Plus, he's still starring in movies and promoting his Catholic faith with the Hallow app, etc.

Agree about Dutch Bros.

Always quicker to go in! Even for take-in. A coworker swore by that when we worked at a bank branch. She'd work the drive thru and laugh at the customers. (However, as a mom with a sick kid, I was grateful for a drive-thru at the drugstore.)

For In-N-Out, unless the line is super short, I go inside to place my order and use my phone to pay. Then I decide if I want to take my food with me, or eat outside or in.
