Doubling down

Doubling down

Hold onto your arteries! Getting your greasy hands on a greasy Double Double no longer requires a seven-hour drive out of state. In-N-Out Burger is coming to the Mile High City.

According to the Denver Post, the Southern California chain won approval this week from the town of Lone Tree for construction of a 3,867- square-foot In-N-Out northwest of Park Meadows Mall. This is the first time in its 71-year existence the chain has expanded beyond California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Texas.

Credited with being the first drive-thru, In-N-Out was founded in 1948 and went on to gain cult-like sta tus, ironic given the chain’s religious slant (check the bottom of your soda cup or french fries next time.)

Denverites can expect their religious experience to begin at around this time next year. The restaurant is expecting so much traffic, the Post reports its drive-through will be equipped to handle 26 cars, qualifying it for the distinction of being Colorado’s longest fast-food drive-thru.

Maybe you’ll need that prayer after all.
