In-and-Out Burger Frisco, Tx

On Saturday June 3rd, I was at the mall in Frisco. There were AT LEAST 80 cars in the drive through line between 12 noon and 4pm. It was 100 degrees outside. At all times there were long lines of people outside. There was police all over the place monitoring the drive-thru line which used up most of a parking lot at the mall.

(Edit: I did not get in that line. I am just reporting what I saw, because to me it was bizarre.)

The videos below are accurate. People will sit in their cars, for hours and hours and hours, rather than to just come back when it's not busy. i counted at LEAST 80 cars in line.

In one video, it looks like 500 cars are in line for the drive-thru.

and it's not even worth sitting in line when you are the only one there...

When the one opened up in Scottsdale it had a 4 hour wait the first day. In-N-Out is delicious.

Yes I like Five Guys also. The only problem is holding your meal under 1,200 calories minimum. That more than anything keeps me at In-n-Out with a number 3 with diet Coke.

Yea 5 Guys isn't really calories friendly. Bacon Cheeseburger with regular fries is around 1200+ calories. Add a coke or whatever it's around 1400! Still both of them (which isn't far from my work place) is packed everyday during lunch and on the weekend too!

Even still you haven't done hardcore burger until you've hit a Fudruckers.

People are dumb! No food is worth waiting in a line that long......unless you are starving to death (literally) and lack the decision-making skills to choose another place.

Tell that logic to the people who sleep in front of stores at midnight so they can can hit the day after Thanksgiving sale.

Yeah, but is that really fair? Five Guys isn't fast food!

As for the Frisco In and Out, I accidentally went in their lot the day it opened. I was trying to get to Verizon which is down past there. It was NUTS! Was back in that area this past Saturday, and it was still a long, long line!!!

I agree: That is completely NUTS!!!
