I don't believe we need another hamburger place in Campbell, especially on that sight. The traffic on that corner is already heavily impacted. It would be nice to have a restaurant that has a nice variety on their menu. Suggestions would be AppleBee's, Bennigan's, Ruby Tuesday or a Jason's deli they have sandwiches, soups a salad bar & they also, cater to gluten free customers.

I support In-N-Outs proposal. I think it would be great to have an In-N-Out this close.

I see most In-N-Out locations appearing to be "In-and-In-and-In-and-In-and-In-and-finally-Out", both drive-thru and inside. Current traffic alone makes this NOT a location for one of these in my opinion. I see I'm listed as "outside City Boundary"; I guess San Jose folks don't have to shop in Campbell...

Although I love In and Out, my response is NO! That intersection is already a traffic nightmare. I shop at Kohls, Bed, Bath and Beyond and frequent Panera and it alreacy takes a while to get into the parking lot going either direction. With 2 lanes going to Hwy 17, the traffic is always slow and backed up. It would discourage residents from shopping during peek hours. There is already too much activity going on at that intersection and this would cause more back up.
Thank you for listening.

I am very against this plan. An In-N-Out Burger will only increase traffic on the Hamilton exit and is taking away space that could be used for a new, local restaurant. Campbell already has plenty of fast-food burger joints (Habit, Steak n Shake, Burger King, etc.), and the city does not need more. The Coleman In-N-Out is also close enough if one wants In-N-Out in particular.

Yes, the traffic in that area is TERRIBLE as is. However, In n Out is really good and will not only bring a lot of jobs here but will also bring a lot of money to the city. We have important things around the city that we need money to fix. Extra traffic vs having more funds to get things done...I welcome In n Out with open arms.

Would love having one close by, and it's sad that this site has been poorly used for so long. Campbell deserved an INO!

This is a terrible idea. Traffic is already a nightmare at the Hamilton/ Almarida intersection and getting off the freeway there is always a bottleneck. Having a fast food restaurant at that corner would add a plethora of problems including more cars than we can handle, garbage, loitering to name a few. I love our neighborhood and would like to keep it safe, clean and I would like to be able to get home without fighting a giant drive through line.

As much as I would like to have an In-n-out closer to home, I have to agree with the traffic concern. If the rear parking could somehow be converted into a smarter queue for drive through that can take at least 20 cars, it might be ok. Keep in mind that an In-n-out building won't have as large a footprint as the elephant bar does. The way the drive through queue spills into the parking lot by the airport is totally dumb. If they can innovate and come up with a smarter layout for the drive through, I would patronize this location.

While I believe that In-N-Out is a respectable business and one that fits the standards of a family community such as Campbell, the location choice will make an already horrific traffic situation even worse. The Hamilton/880 section of town is one of the heaviest traffic areas in Santa Clara County. To believe that adding an In-N-Out won't have an impact on traffic is not logical. It reminds me of the plans to extend light rail when the VTA argued that leaving the Hamilton Station at street level wouldn't impact traffic. I'm regularly stuck in traffic jams at the crossing at Campbell Ave downtown where the Light Rail is. Thankfully the PUC made them raise the station. There are several good burger options already right in town and I can think of several businesses that would be great additions instead. I like In-N-Out Burger, but I do not support it going in at the old Elephant Bar location.
