This area intersection is as close to "fail" as any intersection in Campbell right now. In 'n Out serves hundreds of cars per day. This is not the right place for a high volume drive through as well as a sit-down restaurant.
And what will it say about Campbell? Welcome to the fast food and traffic capital of the west valley.

An In n Out Burger at the old Elephant Bar site is a horrible idea. I drive this route every day, and the traffic coming at the intersection of Hamilton and Almarida, so close to the always-crowded 17 interchange is heavy. This is an intersection that already causes confusion between Home Depot and Kohl's (despite the new brightly lit sign -- thank you, City of Campbell!) Anyone familiar with In N Out Traffic can only imagine the nightmare this will cause at all hours of the day and night. Locating this business at the old Elephant Bar will make it impossible to get "in n out" of our neighborhood. We don't need another hamburger joint -- please find another family-friendly tenant for this corner!

In&Out is a very popular business with a very lengthy drive-through line of vehicles and a large number of cars parked. Please monitor the location by the airport at busy times. This location in Campbell is small and at a busy corner, and will be swamped by this business, spilling over on to the streets and causing the already busy traffic to be a nightmare. Just say no.

The whole area surrounding Hamilton Ave. & Almarida is already a traffic nightmare. Between people getting on and off Hwy 17, people trying to get to Frys, Home Depot, Staples, Kohls, BB&B, and Panera, or people just trying to get home to the apartment complex, it's total chaos. I can't even fathom what putting an In-N-Out drive-thru would do.

While I personally like the In-N-Out Burger chain, I think the proposed location would be a traffic nightmare. The exit from 17 South to Hamilton Ave is already a frustrating traffic setting. Many drivers do not realize that there is a full usable lane they can enter to turn right onto Hamilton Ave, and so they back up the exit by waiting for an "opening" in the middle lane's traffic. With a destination fast-food location, many people unfamiliar with the area will make the same mistake, creating major backups at the exit.
We already have a McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box and Dairy Queen just a few blocks away on Hamilton Ave and Winchester Blvd. We don't need another fast food chain nearby, especially in an already congested area.
I think it will draw a lot of non-residents to come just for In-N-Out, then head back onto Highway 17 immediately after. I don't think they'll be sticking around to shop at other Campbell locations or have a significant impact on drawing customers to nearby Campbell stores.
The only good would come from their yummy food, but I really don't think it would be worth the cost in Campbell residents' quality of life that would be diminished by the increased traffic congestion at that intersection.
Thank you for considering my comments.

Traffic in this small area is already horrific. I cannot imagine how much worse it will be with this popular food chain backing up traffic. It will cause more of a backup to highway 17 and all of the surrounding streets. This area cannot support such a busy drive thru restaurant - I think that is the key take away here - A BUSY DRIVE THRU = LOTS OF CARS - The traffic will be horrendous. Please do not approve.
(I am a Campbell resident although this states otherwise. Assume that is based on zip code alone. There are a few of us with an SJ zip code who actually reside in Campbell on S. Clover and Monica lane, etc.)

As much as I love In-N-Out, the proposed location is not a good one. The restaurant would be right next to a freeway off ramp. My concern is how traffic exiting the freeway would be affected. In-N-Out restaurants often have drive-thru lines that carry over onto public roads. No one wants to exit the freeway and immediately be stuck in a drive-thru line for In-N-Out. This is not the right location for the proposed restaurant.

Agree with the residents who say I love In-N-Out but this location is already crazy.. I get off this exit everyday from work.. The last thing we need there is a high volume drive through..

This is not going to help with the congestion that we already have on Hamilton Avenue. A family-friendly sit down restaurant would be much preferable.

I am against the proposed In-N-Out Burger at this location. Traffic would be a total nightmare! That intersection is already very congested. This development would turn it into a parking lot.

How many burger places does Campbell need. There is Brown Chicken Brown Cow, The Habit, Moe's, The Burger Lounge-all close in proximity. I suspect Steak and Shake failed because of a myriad of better choices. The traffic mess having In and Out on Hamilton is not worth another hamburger restaurant.

Please vote NO on In-N-Out Burger. Nothing against this particular company, but we have enough fast food, burger joints in Campbell. I am local Campbell residents and I experience everyday the traffic congestion that already clogs this part of Hamilton. A drive through will make the traffic worse! Lets bring in another type of business into the community that isn't going to make traffic worse and will provide a real needed service to our community.
