Lauren Marmaduke reported this morning on the eastward move of California's famous In-N-Out Burger chain, where it's expected to open at least half a dozen of its burgers stands in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Houstonians weren't bothered by this "snub," to say the least.
Take commenter Wuwu's response to the announcement, for example:
In Out does not offer jalepenos and Whataburger does....need a Texan say more?
No, Wuwu. They need not. And until In-N-Out Burger also offers chorizo breakfast tacos too, we're not losing any sleep over their relocation. Dallas can have their California burgers.
