Thank you for trying to find something for this location. However, please find a different restaurant, we really, really need variety in Campbell. We have way too many Hamburger and Pizza places (no more please). I'd love to see a really good Chinese Restaurant (like The Mandarin Gourmet in Cupertino), Sushi, Indian, Pho, Filipino, Tapas, Seafood, a Salad Bar place or really anything healthy, but no more hamburger, pizza or fast food places. There has to be other options. Also, not to mention the traffic that a fast food restaurant brings in, which others have already noted.

In-N-Out as a restaurant would be a welcome addition to Campbell, but not at that location. That intersection is already a terrifically busy intersection and the addition of In-N-Out will only make things worse. In-N-Out always has long cueing lines before food pick-up, so if plans go forwards there has to be adequate planning for long cueing lines. The City Council cannot be allowed to approve a plan that negatively impacts residents or customers of existing businesses.

I would like to see a restaurant more in keeping with the spirit of Campbell. We have so many unique places to eat, shop, socialize and a fast food place is not going foster any of this things. It will add a lot of traffic. Very few if any of the fast food patrons will stick around to enjoy our great little town.
I don't see where the city or its residents will have any great benefit from this establishment. I would like to see a sit down restaurant that offers some unique menu items that currently are not available in Campbell such as a Vietnamese, French or American style restaurant.

Although I like the idea of an In & Out in Campbell, this location is a terrible idea. Traffic is already backed up and at a standstill twice a day, and it's frequently crowded at this intersection during non-peak hours. A drive thru restaurant is the last thing we need here.

I think putting an In & Out where the Elephant Bar use to be is a bad idea! I like In & Out but that is the wrong place to put it at. That exit is already insane for us, the traffic would be 10 times worse with a drive thru burger joint right at that exit. I really hope they think twice about this

In-N-Out is a terrific company with great food, and I would welcome the Company to Campbell, but the proposed location is not a good fit for Campbell. This quasi intersection is too impacted to take on a popular drive through business. The drivers exiting Home Depot are often unsure of how to navigate the intersection. The freeway only right turn lane adjacent to Fry's is ignored. East bound Hamilton has lots of lane renegotiation as drivers approach the Highway 17. The West bound exit from Highway 17 on to Hamilton is a short merge with drivers wanting to turn right on to Almarida Drive, especially at 5:00 pm. Impatient drivers entering and exiting the restaurant will make risky decisions and further compromise safety. Please suggest another location in Campbell for In-N-Out.

Love In and Out. Great idea.

The In and Out on Capitol and Tully generates a significant number of police responses during the weekend...specifically during late night hours. DUIs, DUI accidents, gang fights, sideshows, etc. are a common occurrence. Inviting this behavior near residential Campbell neighborhoods is a horrible idea.
The traffic in the Hamilton/880 interchange is already unbearable. Now you are planning to add a fast food chain that REGULARLY has drive through traffic backed up in to the street? There is a reason why most of these restaurants are in huge shopping centers and not small commercial use lots in front of residential neighborhoods. Traffic at these places can be so bad - in Los Angeles for example - waiting in a drive thru line at an In and Out is considered a rite of passage.
Also, why does it have to be a low-brow, fast food restaurant? Aren't there ANY other alternatives for that spot?
This is a terrible idea for the Citizens of Campbell.

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.

As someone who lives directly behind the former Elephant Bar property, I'm incredibly worried about an In-N-Out going in at that location. Even though Elephant Bar was open late and sometime got a crowd of late night revelers, the fact that the back of the building was empty and quiet made a nice buffer for the apartment buildings on the other side. Judging by how small the location is, I'm sure the parking and drive-through traffic would come directly up against the fence to the apartment building property and any hope for a quiet buffer between the business and the adjacent residences would be a distant memory. I'm really concerned about the noise and traffic that a high-volume drive-through business would bring to this quiet corner.
Furthermore, as it has been stated many times already in this forum, that location is far too small for an In-N-Out. Go to any location in the area and you'll see a much larger location that is still choked with traffic. This just seems like a horrible location for an In-N-Out.
Sadly, if In-N-Out moves in here, my family will probably move.
