There's In N Out locations in LA that have been around for years that have lines into the street everyday during the lunch hr and in the evening depends on your location. There's a reason people are willing to sit in a car on a hot summer day waiting to be served at In N Out and it's not simply the hype. Most who wait in those long lines have eaten there before. I don't see near the lines at Wendy's or Del Taco there's nothing special about them.
Some people will opt for either one or whatever chain is in the area because they don't want to wait in a long line at In N Out. I've driven up to In N Out before and settled for something else once I saw the long line dripping into the street. Obviously you don't think In N Out is anything special that's your opinion to each his own.
