If you’ve driven past The Village at Meridian this summer, you know that Idaho’s very first In-N-Out is really starting to take shape! 

When the highly anticipated fast food chain broke ground at The Village at Meridian in March 2023, the construction company said that if everything stayed on track it could be completed as early as September 2023. That date has come and gone. So have several other rumored opening dates. In-N-Out itself isn't ready to announce an opening date even though the building looks quite complete. (The picture below is from July. As of November 13, 2023 the building is white and the signs are up.) When it’s all said and done, the restaurant will be able to seat 84 guests inside, 32 guests outside and have enough room for 41 cars to go through the drive-thru.

Meanwhile in Boise, In-N-Out filed permits for the signs they’ll put up on Milwaukee after they build the second location where Pier 1 is. Those were filed on July 17. In October, This Is Boise reported that there may be a hang-up with the location since the site of the former Pier One is owned by a different entity than the mall itself. Public records do, indeed, show that the two addresses have different owners.

There’s also rumors floating around that the burger chain is interested in demolishing the old TGI Fridays location in Nampa to build a third Idaho In-N-Out Burger.

Needless to say, the Boise area isn’t just getting a restaurant that they’ve wanted for a long time, they’re going to get lots of places to enjoy a Double-Double-Animal Style.

Which…you won’t find on the menu board when you walk in! If you’ve never been to In-N-Out before, the menu you’ll find when you walk in is pretty simple: three burgers, french fries and shakes. But if you’re standing at the counter listening to the person in front of you order, you may hear them order something that sounds like they known some secret that you don’t.
