COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– “In-N-Out Burger is coming to Colorado!” Denver City Council President Albus Brooks tweeted Thursday morning.
The story on the CBS Denver Facebook page had been shared more than 1,500 times in just two hours with the comments pouring in.
“My life just got a little better,” commented Rose, “Had to check and make sure this wasn’t an Onion Article.”
Yeah, it’s real, but we quickly learned what each of you now know, it seems everyone has a stong opinion about In-N-Out.
“Haters stay away, and make room for the fans,” wrote one.
Another commented, “The most overrated burger place ever.”
Andy Klein with Westside Investment Partners Inc disagrees, “It is not overrated, it is the best burger around. 4×4, Animal Style, no pickles,” he said.
Westside is the company developing Victory Ridge. Early plans show a restaurant at the primary corner near Interquest and Voyager Parkways. An In-N-Out distribution facility will be located there as well.
“For anyone who’s been to an In-N-Out Burger, they drive a lot of traffic even if their stores have been open for many, many years,” said Klein
Klein says this is the just the start, he’s sure more locations will be announced in the near future, including in Denver.
Any conversation about In-N-Out quickly turns to talk of their secret menu.
In-N-Out calls it an urban myth and has the not-so-secret menu posted on their website.
