It has been rumored for awhile that the famed California-based fast food chain, In-N-Out Burger, would be expanding into North Texas. It is now official: Fort Worth’s West Seventh Development has signed a lease with the burger chain where it will occupy the property at the northwest corner of West Seventh and Currie streets.

The chain is fairly simplistic: just three burgers available, along with fries and three milkshakes and soft drinks. Cheap prices as well (two to three bucks for the burgers). In-N-out expects to be up and running by mid-2011, according to the press release, and be open until 1 am on weekdays, and 1:30 am on Friday and Saturday nights. A drive-through will be a part of the new location.

In-N-Out will not be inside the West Seventh Development proper, but on a vacant parking lot on the north side of West Seventh Street near a Wendy’s.  Also, it will be just about two blocks away from Fred’s Texas Cafe. Maybe a little burger wars in the works?


  1. This is good news. Whether you like their burgers or not this gives cred to 7th street and the growth of Fort Worth in general. If I am not mistaken Starbucks just entered this market 5 years ago and sushi is just now becoming popular. Consider this addition a feather in the hat of Fort Worth and a big “suck it” to Dallas. Just like the recent ESPN announcement. Kick ass.

  2. In-N-Out Burger may be more famous for its bumper sticker (often with the “B” and the “r” cut out) than for its fairly plain burgers, although the fries are damn good… congratulations FW. I’m not having to say “it’s near Dallas” much these days.

  3. There is a “secret” menu so that you can have more than just the plain 3 burger types:

    The Hidden In-N-Out Burger (aka In and Out Burger) – off the menu specials…

    “3-by-3” = three meat patties and three slices of cheese.

    “4-by-4” = four meat patties and four slices of cheese.

    “2-by-4” = two meat patties and four slices of cheese.
    You know how much I LOVE In-n-Out burgers, so here’s their secret menu that
    those in the know use in addition to the regular menu.

    *Note: You can get a burger with as many meat patties or cheese slices as
    you want. Just tell the In-N-Out Burger cashier how many meat patties and
    how much cheese you want and that is what you’ll get! For instance, if you
    want 6 pieces of meat and 10 pieces of cheese tell them you want a

    “Double Meat” = like a Double Double without cheese.

    “3 by Meat” = three meat patties and no cheese.

    “Animal Style” = the meat is cooked and fried with mustard and then pickles
    are added, extra spread and grilled onions are added.

    “Animal Style Fries” = fries with cheese, spread, grilled onions and pickles
    (if you ask for them).

    “Protein Style” = for all you low-carbohydrate dieters, this is a burger
    with no bun (wrapped in lettuce).

    “Flying Dutchman” = two meat patties, two slices of melted cheese and
    nothing else – not even a bun!

    Fries “Well-Done” = extra crispy fries . . . even better than the regular!

    Fries “Light” = opposite of fries well-done, more raw than most people like

    “Grilled Cheese” = no meat, just melted cheese, tomato, lettuce and spread
    on a bun.

    “Veggie Burger” = burger without the patty or cheese. Sometimes we call this
    the “Wish Burger.”

    “Neapolitan” Shake = strawberry, vanilla and chocolate blended together.

    The friendly employees of In-N-Out Burger will take your special order
    without question, if you use the right terminology. The printed receipt will
    have your special request typed on it just as we said it.
