Customers waited 14 hours to order at a new In-N-Out Burger outside of Denver on Friday when Colorado got its first two placements at the Southern California fast-food institution.
The burger craze at the Aurora site forced the officer to direct traffic, which police tweeted as “double-double animal style,” KTLA sister station KDVR reported.
Aurora In-N-Out is one of two that opened in the state Friday, with the other in Colorado Springs. This location was also slammed, with the first customer queuing on Tuesday, according to a journalist at a local newspaper.
Around. 16 local time, police said the line “wrapped around the mall twice” and was estimated at 1 1/2 to 2 miles long – and 14 hours.
“They will close before you are likely to reach the window,” officers warned via Twitter.
Police urged people to support local restaurants that do not have waiting time.
“Maybe support another local eatery today and In-n-Out another day if the traffic is too hectic for you,” the Aurora Police Department said.
All In-N-Out Burger locations are open daily from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and until 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, according to a release from the burger chain.
In-N-Out plans to open a total of at least nine restaurants throughout Colorado.
