Campbell doesn't need a another burger restaurant. Been living here for 30 years now and frequently went to the Elephant Bar when it was at this location. WhenI worked in Milpitas I used to go to the IN-and-Out Burger a lot at lunch time. Always long lines and traffic problems. Coming off of HWY 17 onto Hamilton can be backed up now and with an additional line of cars waiting at In-and Out it will only get more dangerous. We don't need a drive thru, ANY drive thru. I don't know how much it costs the city to have this lot set vacant, but I think we would be better served with a Chilli's or a Black Bear Diner, or some place that does not have a drive thru.

No, we dont need an In-N-Out on that area, traffic is already a mess there, this would just make it worse

This stretch of Hamilton is already an accident waiting to happen. Folks coming off 880/17 are busy jockeying for position to enter Frys or Home Depot, necessitating several stunt-worthy lane changes. Traffic in general is already too congested with only the businesses already there. I'm for NO on allowing this property to be changed to an In-and-Out.

Yes, it's great to have a popular business that'll generate revenue for the city. But considering how bad the traffic is already around the area, as a resident in that area, I just can't say yes to the proposal. The area simply isn't designed to handle that much traffic. With the 17 offramp, Fry's, Home Depot, Kohls/BB&B, and the carwash, the intersection just can't handle another business that's guaranteed to generate long lines and tons of noise pretty much all throughout the day and night if they're allowed to operate late (most of them do). So I vote a strong NO on having In-n-Out in Campbell.

I am not in favor of an In and Out Burger at the old Elephant site. Traffic in that intersection is already a nightmare with Home Depot Kohls Bed Bath and Beyond Frys and 17 880. I already go the back roads to get to those stores and would not ever go to that in and out no matter how much I do enjoy their food. No please.

While I love In-and-Out Burger I don't think a drive thru at the location would be good. It would cause a ton of traffic. There is already a lot with Home Depot and Knob’s. Think we already have a dedicate lane that gets backed onto 17 if you add In-and-Out Burger it will be nightmare.
If In-and-Out Burger is to go there, it needs to be a sit in restaurant only.

Just to echo what so many others have said, I do not support building an In-N-Out with a drive-through at this location. Navigating that area with traffic coming off 17 is already tricky, and I worry that the popularity of In-N-Out will cause spillover into the street.
That is my only objection - I would be in favor of this proposal if In-N-Out amended it to remove the drive-through.

Although I am not a Campbell resident, I drive past this property daily. There is more than enough traffic for a business to survive but for an In and Out Burger it would be a nightmare for the traffic on that corner.

I love In-n-Out just as much as the next person, however, this is a horrible location for it! The traffic off 17 onto Hamilton between 4-6:30pm is terrible as it is. Our employees use that exit every day, and at times have waited 20+ minutes to exit with the current traffic. Throw an In-n-Out into that, and we are talking about a wait of perhaps double that! That's going into overtime pay for business owners in that area! Not to mention that the drive thru line would most likely spill out to the street making it very difficult for consumers to visit the BBB/Kohls center. I say put El Burro, that was just kicked out of the Pruneyard, here instead!!

I love In-N-Out Burger and would support one coming to Campbell. However, I do not support its being built on the proposed location. Traffic would be a nightmare. Traffic coming onto Hamilton from 17 is often backed up, particularly during special events and before the winter holidays. However the current proposal of an extremely popular drive-thru restaurant would exacerbate the problem. There are other good locations and the city should work with In-N-Out to identify them.

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.
