Get a taste of Wenatchee “fast food” history.
Back in 1949 Bette and R.L. “Dusty” Rhodes opened what is still the oldest fast-food restaurant at its current location in Wenatchee, Dusty’s In-N-Out. It stayed in the family until 1994 when it was sold to Gus and Laura Noyd and their son and daughter-in-law, Bryan and Cyndi Noyd.
In 2004 Peter Kuske and Mike Noyd bought Dusty’s and renovated the building to what we see today.
In October of last year, Dusty’s suddenly closed its doors, and then in mid-November, it was announced that the Wild Huckleberry would make Dusty’s In-N-Out part of its family of restaurants. Nothing shocking will be on the menu, you will see burgers, fries, shakes, and sundaes.
Over the years it has been said that if you don’t need napkins when you eat a Dusty's In-N-Out burger then it's not really an In-N-Out burger. Well, it’s time to find out. Before I finish this article I will be getting lunch at Dusty’s and we will all find out if the burger still measures up to its over 7 decades of history.
I ordered the In-N-Out double burger and instead of fries, I went for onion rings because I work by myself in a little room with a microphone.
Everything is made to order. The meat won't hit the grill until the order is turned in. I'm not a "secret sauce" guy but I liked it and the rings were hot and crispy.
Taste it for yourself.
