I was dismayed when the Elephant Bar went out of business. For years it was a place for birthday, graduation, and other festive family occasions. It filed a niche between fine dining and cheap fast food. It had an elegance about it with its elephant motifs and elaborate ceiling fan mechanism. The bar was a nightly watering hole for colorful locals. I miss it. I was hoping to see another mid-scale restaurant take its place. An InnOut joint with lines of drive- through cars will cheapen that whole area. Please do not approve this plan!

Looks like there will be more than adequate traffic flow for the drive thru on site! I support an In-N-Out in Campbell where Elephant Bar was! Instead of tax dollars going to San Jose (because In-n-Out fans will travel there to get the food), they will stay in Campbell. It will give shoppers across the street a quicker alternative for food, not to mention that travelers on Hwy 17 will welcome a quick off for some In-n-Out!!!

Come on Campbell we can do better than another unhealthy burger joint. We sure do seem to have plenty of burger and pizza places, do we want to be known as the obesity capital of the South Bay - 'come visit Campbell where another fast food joint is just in waddling distance'. Don't get me wrong I like a burger but what about some diversity?

I think In N Out would be great at that location as long as the que is contained on site. They managed this at the Coleman location and it works well. Maybe there could be a sign that says no left turn from their parking lot onto Almarida?

The last thing we need in Campbell is one more hamburger spot, that will clog our already crowded streets. How many other hamburger locations are within a mile of the proposed site? In downtown Campbell alone there are MO's, Brown Chicke Brown Cow, Habit Burger Grill, and the new place near the railroad tracks that is about to open. Please STOP this nonsense!!

Growth is important and extremely necessary for Campbell. Having lived and gone to school in the area, traffic is the least of everyone's concerns. The reason there is "traffic" is because when people exit off the 17 to Hamilton, most if not ALL people do not know that they have their own lane. With or without the In-N-Out, there will be traffic.
Until identifying signs or cones are put in place, there will be traffic, In-N-Out or not. I vote to build it, Campbell would benefit GREATLY from it.

In general, I support the conversion of the Elephant Bar premises for development and use by In-N-Out. The land was already zoned for and used by a food service business and in that regard, no zoning change is needed or warranted. The only real issue, as I see it, is the potential traffic impact of drive-thru patrons lining up and spilling out onto surrounding streets. I would think that City planners, working with In-N-Out, can come up with adequate traffic mitigation/control measures that will eliminate spillover problems and resulting traffic snarls.

As much as I'd love to see an In n Out Burger come to Campbell, I feel that property would be better served as an Olive Garden or similar restaurant. That corner is already congested enough and I have seen the Hamilton Ave off ramp back up as far back as 280 as it is. I only see that getting worse with a drive thru themed restaurant such as this.

We don't need another "fast-foid" restaurant in the area. Would like to see a restaurant that has a better quality. Something like a Lazy Dog, ruby Tuesday, or even Red Robin would still be better.
