Re: It's Only a Burger For Pete's Sake.

We have one about 5 minutes from my home. I haven't eaten there in many years but I remember them as ok. Not spectacular. I didn't care for their fries. I like my fries a bit thicker. We had lines like that when White Castle open here. Still haven't eaten there and most likely won't.

The same type of thing happened here in Colorado when Krispy Kreme came to town. The city had to send in the police to direct traffic, prevent accidents and chaos from happening near and around their stores. I could hardly believe it when I saw the lines of cars on the local news. Now they have all but disappeared and most all the donut shops here are closed, too.

Same thing in my Texas city when Krispy Kreme opened....and personally I thought a local bakery's donuts were better....  I don't see any long lines, but that could change if the weather gets cooler and people eat more comfort type food and sweets....

 

Carl's Jrs was a flop here.... people prefer Whataburger!!!  Personally, I like a charbroiled hamburger from my favorite local restaurant....

This is human nature. What about all the lines at big box stores for sales, black Friday etc? Apple's latest product, there are long, long lines.

 

In & Out Burger, eh, ok, not great.

I love a good Cheeseburger, and, it's been years, since I've been anywhere, with an In an Out, but NO.  

It will settle down eventually!

Re: It's Only a Burger For Pete's Sake.

Believe it or not, the Taco Bell in our little town is the one with the long, crazy lines. I always go to In-and-Out when I go to Tucson, but the drive thrugh lines are manageable.  Every year there ar rumors that we will get a Chick Fil A, but I don't think it will ever happen. We are too small, but whoever would open one would sure make a lot of money!

Re: It's Only a Burger For Pete's Sake.

They have had a cult followng in California for years.  They really are delicious.  Would I wait in line for hours for one?  No way.  I'm the kind of person who will not even wait more than maybe 15 minutes for a table in a favorite restaurant.  Now I could go for one of their burgers though.

Re: It's Only a Burger For Pete's Sake.

People are desperate for something to celebrate. Since everyone was in their cars for this, I support it. Hope everyone had a good time waiting to get their burgers.
