Imagine spending nearly an entire day of your life — waiting in line at a burger joint!

That’s exactly what Colorado fans of the iconic California chain In-N-Out Burger did last Friday as the burger chain opened up their first store in Aurora.

Police were even called as the drive-thru line was impeded traffic at the mall. The line was estimated to be roughly 2-miles long and wrapped around the mall twice!

“It’s official, traffic is double double animal style right now all around the mall,” Aurora Police tweeted, using some of the cult-like chain’s lingo. “We are on hand helping manage the massive traffic response.” A later post warned of a 12-hour wait, and another said the line “wrapped around the mall twice.” They estimated the line was 1.5 to 2 miles long.

In-N-Out expected to sell about 60,000 burgers over the weekend at the Aurora store, The Denver Post reported.

Denny Warnick, In-N-Out’s vice president of operations, said the company was thrilled with the reception. “I don’t know if we’ve ever felt more welcome, between all the anticipation and the requests for In-N-Out to come to Colorado and now to see the customers out here this morning just feels great,” he said.
