This California-based burger joint has developed a large cult following over the years thanks to its focus on tasty patties, fries and drinks. Veteran In-N-Outers can opt for the not-so-secret menu if they’re in the mood for Double Meat or Animal Style, but be prepared for a drive. The closest In-N-Out is in Prescott.
At long last, one of Flagstaff’s biggest desires is nearing a reality. No, it isn’t affordable housing. In-n-Out is poised to make progress on its long-rumored arrival.
According to city documents, the company has submitted a concept plan to the city for a new location on 1860 S. Milton Road.
Through email, In-N-Out Vice President for Real Estate & Development Carl Arena cautioned that the project is still in its early stages and design elements such as building exteriors, site layouts, circulation and access are still being determined.
Because of that, Arena couldn’t provide an estimate for when construction might get underway or when the location could open.
“We have been working on a possible site for a future restaurant in Flagstaff on Milton Road, and we are very enthusiastic about the opportunity there. That said, it is still very early in the development process,” Arena wrote. “We do know that Flagstaff is a fantastic community, and we definitely look forward to serving customers there in the future.”

The new location has been in the works since at least 2016 when the company sent a letter of interest to then-Mayor Jerry Nabours.
At that time, the plan appeared to be that the burger chain would share a building with the Pizza Hut that occupied the lot. But now that the Pizza Hut at that location is closed, the building will be demolished with the In-N-Out taking its place, according to city staff.
