The Frisco and Allen locations of In-N-Out are three weeks old today. You've had time to digest the Double-Doubles, the well-done fries, and that one girl has, hopefully, wiped away her tears.

Opening day was a manifest destiny of meat. Some travelers had "In-N-Out or bust" on their cars, and others were so thrilled they cut in front of a three-hour long line. So, before the 7940 N. Central Expressway location opens up (coming soon...), we ask simply: Was it worth all the hype?

After the jump, we've created a rather informal poll to gauge the reaction of those who've tried the famous burgers. We're dying to know.

Update at 5:06 p.m.: The results, so far, are interesting.

23.6% say: "Yes...delicious." 8.9% say: "No...screw it." 24.5% say: "It's OK." 43.1% say: "Lines are too long."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
