Toronto burger fans, cancel all your plans for tomorrow: the great, beloved In-N-Out Burger is coming to town, but for one day only.

In an ad published in Metro papers this morning, the burger chain announced an 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. pop-up shop at Italian restaurant Ganzi Osteria on Jarvis, north of Wellesley:

Unless this is a really great spoof, it seems legit (and yes, potentially worth your time to line up). In fact, the restaurant itself (though not the chain) confirmed on Twitter:

Toronto fans have been hoping for an In-N-Out Burger for years, thanks to its incredible reputation. Vice attributes part of its success to the "super-fresh ingredients [that] are the foundation of its quality control and signature taste," while Buzzfeed straight up calls the chain out as "heaven on earth."

So what do you think? Will you stand in line? Or probably more importantly, go visit when one inevitably opens after this trial run?

  • One Location has Only Outdoor Seating
    The outpost with no indoor seating in Upland, Calif. is quite possibly the most unique In-N-Out in the country. Staff members will walk right up to your car to take your order, and there are plenty of picnic tables to take in the view of nearby Mount Baldy and a small airport. Not only is this among the most unique, it’s also one of the oldest around, part of the original expansion outside of Baldwin Park.

  • Managers Make a Hefty Salary
    If you find yourself being hired to manage a location, you can expect to take home upward of $100,000 per year. You’ll also receive full medical and dental insurance, and bonuses like free trips for you and your spouse.

  • Notice Those Crossing Palm Trees?
    Many locations have a pair of crossed palm trees in front, and contrary to what many believe it’s not a biblical reference (even though some serving containers contain bible verses on the bottom, dating to when Rich Snyder, a born-again Christian, ran the company in the 1980s). The palms are actually a reference to It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, a favorite film of the founder, in which treasure was buried under four crossed palms.
