The Village at Allen will be one of the first In-N-Out Burger locations in Dallas-Fort Worth

ALLEN, Texas – (Nov. 2, 2010) – Dallas-based shopping center developer The MGHerring Group today announced that In-N-Out Burger will open at The Village at Allen in mid 2011 as one of the first locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

“In-N-Out Burger’s selection of The Village at Allen for one of its first Dallas-area locations is yet another example of how our project continues to attract sought-after dining and retail concepts, many of which are new to the Dallas market,” said Gar Herring, president of The MGHerring Group. “The Village at Allen, along with sister property The Village at Fairview, is quickly becoming the go-to dining destination in Collin County with new restaurants opening every month.”

The Village at Allen is one component of a joint, 3-million-square-foot regional, mixed-use lifestyle development located in Allen and Fairview, Texas, at the intersection of U.S. 75 and Stacy Road.

The Village at Allen features more than 60 stores, restaurants and businesses, including retail anchors Super Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Best Buy, PetSmart, ROSS Dress for Less, Hemispheres and Anderson’s Furniture.

“The Village at Allen is an ideal location for our expansion into the Dallas market,” said Carl Van Fleet, vice president of planning and development for In-N-Out. “The surrounding retail and entertainment venues will drive new customers to our restaurant. In addition, with a highly-visible location at U.S. 75 and Stacy Road, customers will be able to find us easily.”

The Village at Allen also includes the 6,225-seat Allen Event Center, the Allen Community Ice Rink and the Courtyard by Marriott Dallas-Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center. Recent openings at The Village at Allen include Cotton Patch Café, Cowboy Chicken, Kirkland’s, Paradise Bakery, Sally Beauty Supply, SportClips and more.

Together, The Village at Allen and sister property The Village at Fairview (located across Stacy Road) comprise the largest mixed-use development in Texas and one of the largest in the United States.

By the end of 2010, The Village at Allen and The Village at Fairview will include more than 120 national retailers, specialty shops and restaurants.

The nationally-recognized project spans 400 acres and, upon completion, will feature

2 million square feet of retail and 1 million square feet of office, residential and hotel space. For more information, visit For more information about In-N-Out Burger, visit

    Now if we could just get Round Table and Trader Joe’s, it would be just like the good old days in California…minus the state income tax.

  • Twinwillow

    Gee, how did they ever manage to fit one more franchise in there?

  • Jay Jerrier

    No kidding…there is already Mooyah, Whataburger, McDonalds, Cheddars and Jack in the Box – all on the Allen side. Whole Foods opened yesterday on the Fairview side….

    I’d love to see something other than burgers go in the Village(s). In addition to the ones already mentioned, Twisted Root will be opening on the Fairview side (not that I’m complaining about them).

    Twisted Root opens this weekend in Fairview. Looks pretty cool with a drive-in movie theme.
