Fill the basement with canned goods and line the windows with aluminum: reports are coming in regarding the In-N-Out Burger location in Dallas.

Park Cities People has a memo from the tenants of 8080 N. Central that details the security In-N-Out Burger's Dallas location will have on hand. Which is interesting, yes, but the more notable point: it says In-N-Out Burger's Caruth Haven location is to open at 9 a.m. on Thursday. This Thursday.

It's happening. [screams, gasps!]

We've got a line out to In-N-Out reps to confirm, but in the meantime you may want to buy some survival gear.

Update 12:08 p.m.: Carl Van Fleet confirms. In-N-Out to open Thursday morning. Details forthcoming. 

Update 12:19 p.m.: In-N-Out's release for the Caruth Haven location is after the jump. From the release: "In-N-Out expects to open 10-12 locations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex within the next 12 months"

Hat tip to SideDish for their post.

IRVINE, CA -- In 1948, Harry and Esther Snyder founded In-N-Out Burger, California's first "drive-thru" hamburger stand. Today, hamburgers are still made-to-order, shakes are still made with real ice cream and In-N-Out associates are still treated like family. Beginning June 23, 2011, In-N-Out hamburgers, shakes and fries will be served in Texas at our newest location in Dallas. As with all locations, fresh ingredients will be supplied to the restaurants from In-N-Out.

Hamburger patties are made from 100% pure American beef and whole chucks are boned and ground by In-N-Out's own butchers. All patties are produced and delivered fresh throughout the week to the restaurants and are never frozen. French fries are made from fresh, whole potatoes and are hand diced. A warehouse and a state-of-the art patty production facility have been established in Dallas that will allow In-N-Out to serve all of Texas.

Stephen Kirk, who has been a veteran of In-N-Out for 20 years, will manage the new restaurant located at 7940 N. Central Expressway. The restaurant will employ approximately 60 In-N-Out Burger Associates with a starting wage of $10 per hour. There will be one drive-thru lane, with seating for 99 guests. All In-N-Out Burger locations are open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. and until 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. In-N-Out has locations throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Texas. In-N-Out expects to open 10-12 locations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex within the next 12 months. In-N-Out is still owned and operated by the Snyder family and none of the units are franchised. The corporate offices are located at 4199 Campus Drive, Suite 900, Irvine, CA, 92612.
