The fourth In-N-Out Burger restaurant in Colorado opens Monday in Lakewood.
The restaurant with the cult following for its double-doubles, animal-style fries and secret menu launched in Colorado in November with openings in Aurora and Colorado Springs. A third location opened in Lone Tree in February.
The Lakewood restaurant is on South Wadsworth Boulevard just north of West Alameda Avenue.
The restaurant will employ about 80 people. There will be one drive-thru lane, indoor seating for 74 customers and a covered patio with outdoor seating for 72 more customers.
The restaurant will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. except on Fridays and Saturdays, when it closes at 1:30 a.m.
The Lakewood Police Department announced instructions for those planning to attend the restaurant’s grand opening.
