In-N-Out Burger coming to New Mexico by 2027

In-N-Out Burger coming to New Mexico by 2027

On Tuesday, it was official, In-N-Out Burger announced on social media it's coming to Albuquerque. 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexicans have been hurt too many times – waiting and hoping for the news. 

On Tuesday, it was official, In-N-Out Burger announced on social media it’s coming to Albuquerque. 

Jomarie Lubarsky says she’s excited about the fast food burger chain coming to the Duke City.

“We used to live in Nevada, and so the restaurant was one of our favorite places to go. And so if they really are coming out to New Mexico, it’ll be long overdue for sure,” said Lubarsky, 

In-N-Out officials declined to comment on the news, but said New Mexicans can expect to chow down on some of its burgers and animal style fries by 2027. 

Locations are planned for Albuquerque, but we still don’t know exactly where. 

“I think it’s gonna be cool. Like a new thing to go try with the family. If we’ve never tried it before, you know?” said Joidisan Webb. 

New Mexico will be the last state in the Four Corners to get an In-N-Out burger. In-N-Out opened in Colorado in 2020. 

People KOB 4 talked to were all excited about a new burger joint joining the options we have here. But after the hype around Raising Canes some say the California classic better deliver. 

“I’m excited. I really wanted to try it for a while now. It looks really good. So I’m hoping that it’s up to what people say about it,” said Tremayne Webb. 

Some online weren’t so thrilled. One person wrote it’ll be a disappointment.  Another saying “big deal,” and another just hoping it actually happens. 

A lot of people were asking why we even need In-N-Out when we have Lotaburger.

For now, the jury is still out until we can have a one-to-one comparison. It’s unclear if the menu will feature our beloved green chile or not. 

The announcement of In-N-Out coming to New Mexico follows another much-anticipated fast food opening earlier this year. The first Raising Cane’s location in the metro opened in May.
