Hundreds of Aussies have queued for more than an hour to get their hands on a burger from In-N-Out’s pop-up store in Melbourne.
The pop-up, which was open between 9am and 3pm on Wednesday 8 March at Newmarket Hotel in St Kilda, marked the second time the popular food chain has made an appearance on Aussie shores.
And it was no less busy, with clips showing queues snaking around the block of at least an hour long.
The pop up store served Double-Double burgers, which are made up of ‘double meat and double cheese’, for $8 alongside Animal Style burgers and Protein Style burgers.
By midday, the 600 available burgers had already sold out.
Foodies who shared footage of the queue online warned fans that the burger joint wasn’t serving fries and was dishing out crisps instead, to the disappointment of some eager customers.

Lawyer-turned-entrepreneur and self-confessed burger expert James Hurlston was the first person to break the news about the pop-up on Instagram.
He wrote: ‘Melbourne, you’re on. It will be a sell-out. There will be a line-up’.
In-N-Out debuted its first pop up store last year in Perth, with Sydney being its second stop.
