In-N-Out Burger coming to Houston by end of 2019

STAFFORD, Texas (KTRK) -- The wait is almost over! The Houston area is officially getting an In-N-Out Burger.

A 350,000 square foot retail and restaurant development in Stafford called the Grid will be home to the popular burger spot.

StreetLevel Investments has revealed that the former Texas Instruments campus, located between W. Airport and S. Kirkwood on Hwy. 59, will be turned into a mixed-used development.
