In-N-Out Burger could be coming to Beaverton soon

Portlanders, rejoice! We may soon not have to drive all the way to Keizer for a double cheeseburger and animal fries fix.

Why it matters: A proposed In-N-Out Burger on Beaverton Hillsdale Highway got the green light to move forward this week, paving the way for the Portland area's first location of the popular fast food chain.

The latest: Washington County's Hearings Officer approved Tuesday a land use application filed by the California-based chain for a location along Highway 10.

Dig in: The application details plans for a 3,885-square-foot restaurant with drive-thru and outdoor seating on the corner of SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway and 107th Avenue — less than 15 minutes from downtown Portland.

  • The proposed location would share the street with a Chick-fil-A — almost ensuring that the notoriously busy stretch of road will only get busier.

Flashback: In-N-Out opened its first Oregon location in 2015 in Medford, followed by locations in Grants Pass and Keizer in 2017.

  • The burger chain also submitted a development application for a Ridgefield, Washington, location in March, signaling to some that the company may have forgone its hopes for expansion into Portland's west side suburbs.
  • In-N-Out's Beaverton application was initially denied for land-use reasons in 2022.

What's next: The state's land use agency has 21 days to file an appeal.
