I think an In N Out in campbell is great for the city and future employees. The company is a class act that cares for their neighborhood and employees. They have strong and reliable reputation of success. The traffic arguement is weak. It's inevitable in the bay area. Without or without In N Out, traffic is only going to get worse. It's selfish to dismiss growth in a popular city like campbell. That's why most of us have moved here.

I think Campbell could use an In-N-Out, especially since Shake & Steak closed. We don't have enough premium (something better than bottom-tier McDonald's and Burger King) fast food restaurants here, and I don't want to pay for an $11 burger at Brown Chicken Brown Cow (...though they're pretty tasty, go check them out!).

I am adamantly opposed to In and Out at the suggested location. We live on first street and it takes forever to get home! Too much traffic already!!!
Since I cannot be rude on this forum and mention names,to the person who said if we didn't like the idea, we should not have moved here. Really....what a ricdiculous statement!

There is not anything wrong with competition. I've seen many of these establishments and their drive-thru and public eating area are always busy. This tells me they are selling a good product. Also, I've known many who have worked there saying they work with there school and college schedules. They pay more for what you know how to do in the restaurant, and every one I have gone through the staff is the same friendly and reception is always cordial. They bring a great atmosphere to the area!!

I live in Campbell behind mountain mikes pizza been raised in Campbell (1976 on) . There is NO fast food locations in the area of elephant bar ! That's a great spot its by hi 17 on ramp and MANY people go to that home depot ( across the street) at all times . A in-n-out burger will bring many jobs there and much needed good fast food on that route , its hard to believe it has no happened all ready !

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.

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 think the Hamilton Ave location is perfectly suitable for In-N-Out. Hamilton Ave is a major throughfare with many businesses. Arguments that somehow traffic is going to be drastically affected have no weight. I have lived in Downtown Campbell for 17 years, and have driven that stretch of Hamilton thousands of times, at all times of the day. Bottom line is that there's a lot of traffic on Hamilton--always has been, always will be. The prior establishment, the Elephant Bar, had a lot of patrons--this had zero impact on the traffic, even during high commute times.The people complaining are the folks who live closest to the proposed site, and are trying to use this flimsy "traffic" gripe to get their way. This "hissy fit" is completely self-serving and really a waste of the City's time. Guaranteed none of these folks were out in force protesting businesses moving into other areas of town. It's selective outrage. My response to them is that if they have a problem with traffic, they should never have moved to where they are. This part of Hamilton Ave. is a "business district"--that's just the way it is. I like In-N-Out--their food is good and I've always had very positive experiences at their establishments. Plus, they don't serve booze (as opposed to Elephant Bar)--I wonder if in their moment of self-righteousness, these "protesters" ever paused to consider the benefit of that.

Like many others I am concerned about the traffic pattern at that location. I've never been very impressed with In-n-Out burgers myself but I know many are impressed. Is there is a way to mitigate traffic problems at this site not paid for by Campbell? That is the determining factor. Perhaps the burger place would like to try a sit down location without a drive thru. Highly unlikely but a preferred choice.

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!!
