In-N-Out Burger opens in Round Rock Tuesday

Matthew Odam

Central Texas has its first In-N-Out Burger. The store at 4251 N. I-35 in Round Rock opens Tuesday morning, and people can expect long lines of hungry customers looking to dine on the double-doubles made famous by the family-owned business that opened its first restaurant in 1948 in Baldwin Park, Calif. The Round Rock restaurant, which features one drive-thru lane and seating for 77, will be open Sunday-Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.

The burger chain opened in the Dallas area in 2011 and has more than a dozen locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The second Austin-area In-N-Out Burger is expected to open soon on Airport Boulevard, with a third location coming to Cedar Park in 2014. With locally owned P. Terry’s expanding quickly, Hat Creek Burger Co. opening in Georgetown, and the New York City-based Shake Shack set to open here next year, Austin is quickly becoming a hotbed for hamburgers.
