Pass area residents don't have to wait very much longer to be able to enjoy the popular In-N-Out restaurant close to home, as officials broke ground this week on a new location in Cabazon.

Though there's not an official opening date yet planned, representative for the tribe tell Patch the eatery should be open by "early next year."  It will be located  directly adjacent to the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa, off Interstate 10 at Morongo Trail, according to Tribal Spokesman Michael Fisher.

The location will mark another first for In-N-Out— as it will be the first location on tribal land, Fisher said.

“We are delighted that In-N-Out Burger has chosen the Morongo Indian Reservation as the home for its first restaurant ever on tribal land,” said Chairman Robert Martin of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians. “Given the current economic environment, Morongo is happy to be developing a new project that will not only bring new business activity and jobs to our region but will also generate future economic development opportunities.” 

The restaurant is part of a larger project around the casino and outlets, which are currently being expanded.

That's awesome, but now we will probably never see In-N-Out in Beaumont, which is where I have been hoping it would be in the near future. Don't like having to get on the freeway to go eat somewhere and especially don't like the area around the Morongo Casino. On a side note, what happened to Farmer Boys that was supposed to build in the WalMart parking lot???

Farmer boys is going to be across the street from Wells Fargo (the NE corner of Kohls lot) In and Out is real picky about it's employees but pays better then min wage!

Yeah, that is great (since along the 10 there is no inn-&-out between Tippecanoe & Thousand Palms). My excitement is only watered down by the fact that it has to be associated with that whacked-out tribe, & all that crap around the casino. (like the A&W, or even worse, Coyote Tacos ...which are staffed by a bunch of tribal degenerates)

Yay!! Finally!!!!

Re: Farmer Boys... According to the docs I saw last year from the Beaumont City Council and Planning Commission, the build site is the NE corner of 2nd St and Commerce Way, which puts it in the Walmart parking lot. A few months ago somebody put a "Farmer Boys coming soon" sign on the Kohls corner, then a few days later moved it to the Walmart corner. Now the sign is gone. http://www.ci.beaumont.ca.us/DocumentCenter/View/15980 http://www.ci.beaumont.ca.us/DocumentCenter/View/16149

Oh well I only saw the sign in Kohl's lot...LOL and I guess I haven't been back by there since to see it gone. I don't know the answer to Farmer Boys. I would love to see some activities come to town and less eating places, my house came with a place to eat but not with a place to bowl LOL

Bryce you are still a pig

Very true Washy, I would like to see some places with activities other than eating too! I remember when Wickes Furniture (next to Home Depot) closed down, I heard that a bowling alley was considered for that building. That would have been pretty cool. Instead, we got another furniture store. Boo!

Wasn't that slated for Banning? Or was that all rumors? Oh well, a great source of revenue has gone elsewhere once again.....
JamesB August 20, 2013 at 09:31 PM
Yes Haden, I heard that In-n-Out was considering building in Banning next to the Farm House. Not sure whatever happened to that.

Bummer, I had hoped to see it located in Banning, perhaps in the corner space there by Rio Ranch Market, or as an anchor to spur some development off Sunset south of the freeway. Oh well, guess I'll have to make the drive to Morongo. Can't fault the company for wanting lots of traffic, both car & foot, for their location.
Washy August 21, 2013 at 07:59 AM
In/Out rumors have been for years. And Beaumont heard we were getting on near Denny's/Del Taco

They do own land on Oak Valley & the freeway, brought it years ago, They were hoping to tag in when the Lowes got built, which hasn't happened yet.

Actually was at Morongo Travel on Wed, and saw them starting to break ground. I think it's AWESOME that the PASS will have an IN-N-Out wherever they choose to locate! I am definitely GOING to be there!

@busybody-washy: you appear to be an expert on fast-food joints. one can only imagine the excessive time you spend consuming their slop question: what is your height and how much do you weight? uh-huh...kinda thought so
Washy August 26, 2013 at 04:01 AM
OH look what reared its ugly head the man who acts like he served his country but the best he can do is draw welfare. I don't eat fast food moron I am a vegetarian and a runner. Perhaps you might not have turned out so bad had you actually signed up to serve.....GO AWAY

Good thing my self worth doesn't come from your opinion.
Washy August 26, 2013 at 11:03 AM
Also for the record since you haven't caught your stupidity yet. I was wrong in what I posted, I was corrected. I bet the library near you has reading comprehension courses you can take free.
