This morning, In-N-Out Burger welcomed Toronto residents with a pop-up at Osteria dei Ganzi, “a stately farm-to-table restaurant” that was scheduled to last from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., or until supplies ran out. The offerings were three of In-N-Out’s signature burgers: Double Double burgers, Animal-Style burgers, and a “protein-style version” wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.
The pop-up was cash only, and each customer was only permitted to buy one burger.
The burgers, priced from $4 to $6 each, were sold out by 11:30, according to one customer in Toronto who “arrived at 11:30 to a crowd of 200 disgruntled Torontonians yelling ‘sold out!’ in [her] face.”
Fans reportedly began lining up in preparation as early as 6:30 a.m. and hundreds were gathered to get a hold of the California burger chain’s signature specialties. Although In-N-Out has not announced any expansion plans in Toronto, the chain has said of pop-ups that the events “will help us make future decisions.”
