In-N-Out Burger has long been known to be planning a location in Houston, and now it seems like the California chain has officially found a location for Houston’s first place to score a double double.
Rumors at the Houston Architecture Information Forum originally found out that In-N-Out had bought land in Briarmeadow at Westheimer and Dunvale, and now Eater has received a title deed confirming the purchase. Houston-based commercial real estate agent Baker Katz was involved in the transaction.
The story of In-N-Out’s arrival in Houston was a long one. In 2015, the chain made it clear that it had no immediate plans to expand into the city, but word came earlier this year that the chain was scouting locations for Houston’s first In-N-Out. Given the rapid expansion of burger chains into Houston – think Hopdoddy Burger Bar and Shake Shack – it seems a little counter-intuitive that In-N-Out stayed away for so long.
Details currently available suggest In-N-Out doesn’t have a timeline for the opening just yet, but stay tuned – these animal-style fries aren’t all that far away.
