It appears In-N-Out Burger finally has selected the site for its first restaurant in San Antonio.
While T.G.I. Friday’s currently sits at the corner of Loop 410 and McCullough Avenue, a shell corporation tied to In-N-Out purchased the site across from North Star Mall less than three months ago.
You might be thinking, “Whee, another California burger joint.” I was a bit cynical myself too, as I remember people making a big deal out of Carl’s Jr. here and there and being a bit underwhelmed when we finally went. Not that it was bad, just overrated. As far as In-N-Out goes, though, I remember right after they opened in Dallas reading a story about California transplants crying with happiness at the news and thinking, “It may be good, but surely it can’t be THAT good…”
I’d definitely be willing to try it, though — especially for the animal-style fries.
