Central Texas' first In-N-Out burger may grease up Round Rock next year, according to Community Impact News. A local planning and consulting firm that says they were hired by In-N-Out to help them side-step zoning issues broke the news. Round Rock prohibits drive-thru restaurants at In-N-Out's desired site near the new 8,500-square-foot BJ's Brewhouse and the outlet mall, so naturally In-N-Out needs help creating the precise clusterfuck the zoning laws help to prevent. In-N-Out itself hasn't confirmed the new location, but Community Impact talks to consultant Joseph Vining:
Vining said the restaurant contacted his firm three months ago to help facilitate zoning changes needed at the location In-N-Out is considering purchasing, 4251 N. I-35, next to BJ’s Restaurant. Current planning and zoning ordinances prohibit drive-thru restaurants at that site.The California-based burger chain's cross-country expansion inspired frenzies and long lines at their first Texas locations in Dallas earlier this year before multiple openings whittled away at the fast food restaurant's exotic, animal-style charm.
