Ahhh, the Fast Food Nation strikes again.
In-N-Out Burger, the fabled California hamburger institution finally arrived in Texas yesterday at The Metroplex in Frisco. People were understandably excited, which is really an understatement, because there were lines that seemed like a mile long during the high noon lunch rush for the drive-thru.
Now, for some fast food restaurants, that’s not too crazy when everybody wants to try the new place, especially for a brand as revered as In-N-Out.
One person was brought to tears. Yes, you read that correctly. In this Dallas News clip about the grand opening, a former California resident named Danielle begins crying while chomping on the warm beef patty. Skip to the 1:00 mark for the tears of joy. This is beautiful:
We love it! Raw emotion over food is a good thing. We salute you, Danielle — for that, and for staying so damn thin while downing a huge burger at lunch on a Wednesday!
It’s hard to say, however, if she’s ecstatic for the burger or in that very moment she is just now realizing that she lives in Texas instead of California. ZING! Oh, Texas, just kidding. We love you. (via NextRound)
