Colorado got its first In-N-Out locations, and the lines are 14 hours long! Say What???

Darn...man...I wish we had a In-N-Out Burger in our area. :drool:

By Nexstar Media Wire - 20 Nov 2020

Burger Neon Image.jpg "Customers were waiting 14 hours to order at a new In-N-Out Burger outside of Denver on Friday, as Colorado got its first two locations of the Southern California fast food institution.

The burger craze at the location in Aurora forced officers to direct traffic, which the police department described on Twitter as “double double animal style,” KTLA sister station KDVR reported.

The Aurora In-N-Out is one of two that opened in the state Friday, with the other in Colorado Springs. That location was slammed too, with the first customer having gotten in line on Tuesday, according to a journalist at a local paper.

@AuroraPD - Nov 20, 2020
It’s official, traffic is double double animal style right now all around the mall. We are on hand helping manage the massive traffic response. Be patient and be kind. Maybe support another local eatery today and In-n-Out another day if traffic is too hectic for you.

Update: IN-n-Out burger is now at a TWELVE HOUR WAIT. I repeat TWELVE HOURS. Traffic is still significantly impacted in the area surrounding the mall. They will close before you get to the window most likely. Meanwhile many other local eateries do not have a wait hint hint.

About 4 p.m. local time, police said the line “wrapped around the mall twice” and was estimated at 1 1/2 to 2 miles long — and 14 hours.

“They will close before you get to the window most likely,” officers warned via Twitter.

Police encouraged people to support local restaurants that have no wait times.

“Maybe support another local eatery today and In-n-Out another day if traffic is too hectic for you,” the Aurora Police Department said.

All In-N-Out Burger locations are open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and until 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, according to a release from the burger chain.

In-N-Out plans to open a total of at least nine restaurants across Colorado".

I lived in SoCal for over ten years (my wife is CA native). She to this day thinks that I'm nuts for not liking In-N-Out burger. IMO, there are MUCH better burgers in Cali. I ate In-N-Out many times (because of her), but I was not impressed to say the least. AFA "14 hour wait".....if I would have terminal cancer, and they were giving 100% sure cure for free, I would not wait in line for it.
I have a home there and lived there for 4 years, then California. I don't get it, other than the tons of military in the Springs.
I’m a huge In-N-Out fan and I live about 5 miles from the COS location; however, I may give it a year to cool down before I go. Totally insane.
I have no idea what In-n-out is but there is no fast food or take out food that I would choose over anything home cooked by my wife. Fast food or take out, to me at least, is not a treat, in fact it is the opposite, it is what you have when you cannot for whatever reason eat home cooked proper food. I would not queue for it for 14 minutes. To each their own I suppose.
I love the chain but you have to customize. Double double animal style with extra sauce, fries animal style with extra sauce.

Pretty good burgers, fries and shakes but not worth a wait.

They do treat their employees very well.
We have em at home in SLC, not a fan.

However, I’m not ashamed to say I’ve waited in line for over an hour for White Castle.

14 hours? Nah.
Glad I missed it.
I had them when I lived in Orange bounty.
They are good burgers but not worth a 14 hour wait.
Frankly, there are better burgers in Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas. Most people fly over them; so how would they know?
🍔 Pandemic ‘over-load’ for burger lovers...queuing for 14hrs (no matter how great the burger),...I think not, but being
a 'equal opportunity' carnivore...hmmm. 🤔

They are good burgers for what they are, mass-production fast food. Quality ingredients, great fries. Double-double animal style, please. But I don't like to wait in line for anything.
...if I would have terminal cancer, and they were giving 100% sure cure for free, I would not wait in line for it.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess you've never dealt with cancer ;)

But hey, I get it, it's hyperbole. 14 hours is too long to wait for a burger. But they do make a good one...
But they are good at using the interwebs to drum up bidness .. though the food basically is like every other burger joint, save more expensive as I recall. All derivative of the little non-chained joints that have been wiped out by the race to sameness ..

I wouldn't hit a dog in the behind with anyone who'd stand in a 14 mile line for a greaseburger, at a mall no less
The same thing happened in Tulsa when we got our first Crispy Cream. The line was 1 mile long, and I have no idea about the wait. After a few months, the novelty wore off and the lines are either non existent or run to the end of the restaurant.
