Maybe they should call it "In-N-Out (Very, Very Slowly) Burger." That's the reality of the new local fast-food restaurant that has had a dramatic impact on traffic on a major thoroughfare for Glendale residents. Of special interest to me is news that, 17 months before the business opened, a traffic engineer for the city predicted almost exactly the traffic problems seen today. For connoisseurs of the cuisine, and I consider myself as such, In-N-Out's burgers are the nadir of those available through one's car window.

Kinks in service, preparation, inventory computer programs and construction finishing can be ironed out as the new personnel learn their way around the house.
