In n Out to Open on Morongo Tribal Lands

If you miss the  last one at Palm Springs, you get a second chance at Morongo, coming in 2014.

Earth was getting pushed around Wednesday for construction of the nation’s first In-N-Out Burger on tribal lands.

The scene unfolded to the west of Morongo Casino Resort & Spa on the Morongo Band of Mission Indians Reservation along Interstate-10 in Cabazon.

The popular 1950′s styled restaurant is set to open in 2014. It will be within walking distance from the casino resort and the tribe’s Travel Center, a fueling station that’s equipped with competitively priced gasoline, diesel fuel and slot machines.

In-N-Out will join two other fast-service eateries, Ruby’s Diner and the A&W Restaurant. Hadley’s Date Garden is also located nearby.

“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,” chairman Robert Martin said in a statement. “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.”

With that horrible traffic circle they put in by the reservation, an In- n-out. Will make it even worse to drive around that area....I wonder whose idea it was to build that crappy traffic circle?
