In -N- out ..... how should I be feeling?

So since the first time I ever had In-N-Out, with my little sis, Allie, in San Francisco, on Fisherman's wharf about 6 years ago.. I have been unbelievably, happily, HOOKED! In fact, I don't think I've ever met someone that has not liked this magic burger. I have lost count, how many times I have visited this wonderful joint. Is it because when you are there, it means you are in the warm lovely state that is California, or even Nevada? is it because the fries are just perfectly fried, or the burgers are so fresh and delicious, or the shakes are just perfectly shaken? hmmm...

Well in just a couple more months, there will be an In -n- Out, opening about ten minutes from me, in Utah. I pass by, and see the progress, and i get mixed feelings every time. There are also three more due to open within the next 6 months around here too. You are probably asking yourself... "ummm why is this lady not extremely excited about this?!?" Well let me explain....

It starts back to when I was in high school. For my senior gift from my parents, my dad, and a family friend, took me to San Francisco!! The whole trip, my dad would not stop talking about Krispy Kreme doughnuts. He said we HAD to try them while we were there. While we were at the Giants baseball game, my dad found a box, and brought them to us. When I opened the box, I will admit I was kinda disappointed!! For years I had heard about this "KRISPY KREME" that was soooo delicious. but it was just a glazed doughnut! ha ha!! yes, it was delicious, and it DID melt in my mouth. When I moved to utah the following winter, I was so excited that I would be so close to a Krispy Kreme. We did not have them in the Northwest, so my family would be so excited every time I would come home to visit, cause I would bring home ten boxes!! After I moved home, my sisters and I took a trip up to Seattle to visit Ikea, and then hit the Krispy Kreme... since they had finally built one in the great Northwest! It was by no means, on our way.... but it was SOOO worth it. Long story short... they came up EVERYWHERE.... literally... EVERYWHERE!!! So now, they are no big deal... in fact, I don't remember the last time I even had one.

MY POINT: In -N- Out is such a wonderful place. Does Utah really deserve to have this here? When you think of In-n-Out, don't you think of palm trees, warm weather, the beach, vacation???? Not the state that is known for SNOW! Also... I'm afraid that this situation will happen:

me: so where should we go for dinner tonight???
jeff: how about In-N-Out?
me: nah... we had it three days ago.

Okay, I'm totally going off about this, but I've been thinking about this, since the first day I drove by the most magnificent sign reading: "In-N-Out coming soon!"

all in all... In -N- Out is coming!!! YIPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are hilarious!!! I love your questions "Does Utah really deserve to have this here?" I am not sure that Utah is worthy. You seriously crack me up!

Okay, so I finally remembered to get on here and read your post and I TOTALLY agree with you!!! People slept out to get Krispie Kreme and now I think I had one a year ago. I already have been feeling like the novelty has worn off on In-n-Out because of the one in St. George. I guess we can at least always count on the consistent greatness of their food, which is more than I can say for most of the other fast food places around here. :> Can't wait to babysit The Choaster tonight!!! See ya soon.

I have to say, I just do not get the excitement of In-N-Out. To me, it is just the poor man's Burgerville. The last two trips we made to LA we ate there, and both times, my burger patty was kind of burnt and charred on the outside, and the fries were just... whatever. I would never call them great fries. Just very blah. Like the kind you get in a cafeteria or something. HOWEVER, I totally agree with you on certain things not being special anymore once they're around all the time. Like, can you imagine if you lived right by Disneyland?? That just seems sad!! Love you!
