I went to Allen, Texas for work in May. Allen is a very nice, wealthy suburb of Dallas. We stayed in a great location at the Courtyard Dallas Allen (unlike any Courtyard I’ve been too). Our hotel was close to a lot of restaurants and stores. It was also across the street from The Villages and down the street from Allen Premium Outlets. Needless to say, I spent a LOT of my time shopping.
First, I had to try In-N-Out Burger which happened to be right across the street from my hotel. I’ve heard about In-N-Out Burger from so many people, so I was super excited to finally be able to try this place for myself. I had to scope the lines first and figure out what time would be a good time to go over to this burger place because it was SO popular that there was always a line down the street.
They even had security in the parking lot to keep the cars in order. My 2nd day in Allen, I decided to go over to In-N-Out Burger around 10:30 a.m. (Hey, I had to beat the crowds somehow.) Of course, I had to snap a few pictures once I walked into the place. There was only 2 people in front of me, so going early was the right move.
After about a 10 minute wait, I walked out with my burger and fries. I chose to get my burger without the special sauce (similar to 1000-Island dressing).
I have to say I was not that impressed. The burger had a nice grilled taste to it, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. The fries were very disappointing. I didn’t even finish my fries and I LOVE potatoes. I’m glad that my visit to In-N-Out Burger only took 10 minutes because I would have been very upset, if I had waited an hour just to get a regular burger.
