News: In-N-Out Burger coming to NE Tarrant

About three years ago, we made fun of NBC5 News for their silly lead-in about In-N-Out Burger coming to North Texas. NOW it appears the chain is ready for expansion. While this isn't a news flash (it's apparently been known since November), I thought I'd mention it in case you didn't know.

The popular chain will be located in Hurst on Precinct Line, just north of TX-183, next to the Quik Trip.

Thanks goes to Food and Fort Worth, Texas for the heads up.

News: Qdoba comes to NE Tarrant

Finally, the other Denver-based burrito chain comes to NE Tarrant. Qboda is opening in Southlake at the old San Francisco Oven (and prior to that, Cheeburger Cheeburger) location. Qdoba is my favorite of the Big 3 Burrito chains (the others being Chipotle and Baja Fresh) that proliferated throughout the nation the last 2 decades. I love their fiery habanero sauce and ground sirloin. Hopefully Baja Fresh will consider coming back too, as the closest one to us now is in Las Colinas.

I know I've been way too silent here (though we continue to eat out quite often). I've been debating on what's the best way to serve the readers, and I think I'm going to put together restaurant guides to NE Tarrant in various food categories. That should be coming soon! The wife and I are closer than ever to committing to the NE Tarrant area full time, after flirting with moving back to Colorado (we still have the summer place there, but we may sell it this year).
