What Would You Do… for an In-N-Out Burger?

Customers queued in line for over six hours at an In-N-Out pop-up in Sydney

The line was cut off and the last wristband was given at 11:10 a.m., 50 minutes before the official opening of the pop-up.

Hundreds of Australians that wanted a taste of the California chain’s famous In-N-Out Burger waited in line, some over six hours, at Dead Ringer bar in Sydney. Customers waited despite the scorching 99-degree F temperature, and some waited despite not having a wristband, which guaranteed a burger, according to The Guardian.

Customers were alerted of the pop-up’s existence less than 24 hours beforehand. Burgers were served between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m., around 300 in total. Mashable Australia, who visited the frenzied scene and got on line, reports that the line was cut off at 11:10 a.m., when the last wristband was handed out.


A pair of newlyweds , Lauren and Matthew Smith, was first in line, and had waited since 7:20 a.m. Lauren says, “We just got married three months ago, and on our honeymoon, we had In-N-Out in San Francisco and we loved it. The moment we saw it was coming, we dropped everything. Get there, have another burger.”
