The rumors started up again late last month about yet another burger chain looking to leave a footprint in the DFW burger-crazy market. The rumor appears to be true -- In-N-Out is gunning for North Texas and at least one location is now known.
According to the city of Garland website, the planning commission approved Jim Powell's plans for the first In-N-Out location in Texas east of Lavon Drive and south of Town Center Boulevard.
Last month, Carl Van Fleet, VP of Planning and Development for In-N-Out, told the EatsBlog "We are, in fact, working on a few site opportunities in the market," he wrote. "However, it is still very early in the process so it would be premature to comment on any specific sites and very premature to speculate as to if/when we might actually be doing business in the Dallas area."
Looks like the time is now and that double-double animal style will soon be a very popular term in the Metroplex.
In-N-Out currently has locations in California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada.
