Bisnow DFW is reporting that In-N-Out has purchased a 1.2 acre site near the northeast corner of Precinct Line Road and the Airport Freeway in Hurst.

That was the rumored Mid Cities location when they announced their Texas expansion. There's a site plan on the City of Hurst website showing it going in directly to the east of QT.

The Bisnow information seemed to indicate that was the site.

Looks like a perfect location for them, close to Harwood Harvard and of course 183.

I'm curious if any of the forum members have eaten there and what is their opinion of the food. We haven't had too many reviews of the place yet, and it's been open for more than one month. Time sure flies.

I don't eat burgers, or actually anything they sell (Maybe iced tea?), but we had 5 guys from my work go there on Tuesday. 3 of our Austin people and 2 locals. They were 0/5. They hated it. They have been talking it down ever since they left there. Most of the 5 say it was the worst burger they have ever eaten. One guy said, "It is only 5% as good as a Whataburger" as an example. Now these guys do a lot of eating out. And plenty of fine dining. But none are too good for a burger. In fact I am pretty sure our people from Austin have come to Fort Worth primarily to eat at Fuzzy's Taco. (They eat at the Race street location pretty much every day they are in town.) I looked on Fuzzy's Web site and see they now have a location near Austin. I now figure I will never see these guys again.

Our guys needed exactly 1 hour to get their lunch at In and Out. One guy said they regretted not getting lunch from the vending machine at the Shell station on the way.

I have a heart for any business. And I hope they do great. But I am doubtful that it will be full by Christmas and beyond.

That's interesting Brian. You would think with as much hype as the place has received, that the food would be at least "fair".

Being a transplant from the West (sorry, one can't pick where one is born...), I grew up with the hype but still have only eaten their twice in all my days. My take on their food is that it is simply another fried burger, and sadly, I think Mickey D's 1/4 pounder is better than I&O. The best thing about them 'back in the day' is that they had bumper stickers reading (naturally) "In and Out Burger". The thing to do in high school was to modify the sticker by removing the 'B' and the 'r', and slap "In and Out urge" on the ol' hot rod!

I don't understand the draw - they must have one amazing PR department!

Unlike Brian, I consider myself to be one of the bigger burger fans of anyone I know, and I generally eat 3-4 on the average week. The thing about In N Out (I've been to this location just once so far) is that it's fine but it's just nothing special. If I waited an hour to get one my review would probably be tainted as well, and I do think it's unfair to put it in the same conversation with most fast food burgers. McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and others are really crappy and just not good. In N Out isn't crappy, so it's more in the league as Sonic and Whataburger. That all said, it's not even in the same ballpark as some of our local gourmet places like Love Shack, Magnolia Motor Lounge, Kincaids, Dutch's, etc. Anyone who goes in there with anything other than fast food expectations will leave disappointed.

I've tried Five Guys a couple times now and they're pretty good. Still haven't made it to the new In N Out yet, though. Their problem may be that this area is already saturated with both good fast food burger joints and good specialty burger joints, and right now the hot thing in food seems to be food trucks- Taco Heads, YES! Taco, Weinerman, Nammi, etc. I admit that lately I've gotten kind of addicted to street tacos at the taco trucks, and frequent an old school truck that spends its evenings on James across from the SW Baptist Seminary.

The lines at In-N-Out are no longer out the door at lunch, so I will probably try them soon. When I am out west, I always eat there at least once. Obviously, they can't compete with gourmet burgers. They are not anything but a very good, fresh burger. Also, because of the meat, to me, a double double has a different taste than a single, even if I can't eat all of it. A bit below Whataburger (their double also tastes better than the single) & Braum's, IMO, but the only place that has a burger with that particular taste is Al's in Arlington. McDonald's is junk, pre-cooked, but I still like the taste on occassion. I notice that Crystal's on Beach recently closed. Now that is a very different burger. All personal taste, but I do like the fact that In-N-Out has few items on its menu and it tries to do them very well for a good price. I have always had a problem with McDonald's continually rolling out new crap instead of concentrating on what got them to the dance. McRibs!!!

Now you're speaking my language!! MC RIBS!! I thought my dad and I were the only people on earth who ate these nasty, drippy, unidentified, delicious concoctions, but now I know we are three!!

Unless you are getting them "animal style" with cooked "chilies" then you are wasting your time. The regular burger sucks. I am not a fan of their fries, tastes like cardboard.

Finally, they will always be full of business in December and beyond.

I was going down Beach Street today to pick up a table for the FWBA's booth at Open Streets and I noticed that Dickey's Barbecue will be going into the old Krystal Burger location.

Utility work for North Tarrant Express at the front of the Hurst site has wrapped up and they have started working in earnest on this In-n-Out location. A sign went up on the fence yesterday.

I finally tried In-N-Out on W 7th. It was okay, not outstanding. The fries were hideous; almost like they were formed out of powdered potatoes. Price was reasonable, lower than Five Guys. I like Five Guys better though and think they are worth the difference.
