Almost within the shadow of Allegiant Stadium, local favorite In-N-Out Burger has filed plans to create a themed tribute to its California roots, bringing a 1940s-inspired drive-thru to the westside.
Launched in Baldwin Park, California, in 1948, In-N-Out built a replica of its demolished original location back in 2014, creating a non-operational, roadside attraction.
Now planned for the southeast corner of Russell Road and Polaris Avenue, the 17th local expansion for the burger chain will follow a similar design inspiration to create a working 2,300-square-foot drive-thru, serving only walk-up and vehicular orders, with no indoor dining.
Creating an outdoor, 1,600-square-foot plaza and two drive-thru lanes, once customers have picked up their “double-double” burgers they will drive down a shallow ramp built under the plaza and through a short tunnel that leads them back onto Polaris Avenue.
Yet to be announced by the parent company, the retro look is expected to elongate the boxy Forties design, keeping the gooseneck lamps and sharp red and white color scheme and awnings. A retail component is not part of the current proposal.
Yet to begin the Clark County approval process, an estimated 2021 debut date has not been revealed.
