An in and out ... in Campbell?
I like in and out...
so close to home? ... cool!
Where? The old Elephant Bar location?
Oh.... not good...
Currently that location has too much traffic already
On and off ramp to 17 / 880 and also to 280
Going south on Almarida (passing the site on your right) turning left to get on to the freeway is already crowded only to hit another light just before the on ramps... very frustrating most of the time. With Kohls and bed bath beyond there and Home Depot and frys across the street it's a very busy (SETS OF) intersections.
Currently I believe it's too dangerous to walk or roll ( I'm in a wheelchair) to the light rail. Today!
A drive through (especially an in and out) at that location just would not work traffic wise.
Grid lock will happen people leaving Home Depot, Kohls, Frys, Bed Bath and Beyond on foot or in a car/truck will cause the current flow to stop. Look at any In and Out drive through line... it's long... and people are stupid and just stop in the street and block traffic just to get in.
This will make a commute just to get onto the freeways and to go downtown...
I love in and out... just not there ...it's a horrible idea.

I live in San Jose 1 block from the Campbell border, within walking distance of this location. There is too much traffic on this part of the street already, and adding an in-n-out would worsen it substantially. More importantly, we do not need another fast food chain in this part of town. We already have McDonalds, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box, KFC, Wendys, Burger King, and El Pollo Loco, amongst others, within a 1 mile radius. I often have to drive miles away just to find a decent meal. What we need are restaurants with healthy and affordable food that are owned and operated by local people who actually reside in and care about our community. Please don't contribute to our neighborhood feeling even more soul-less and boring by adding another chain. We already have too many. Please give us something that we actually NEED, that will make our community better.

Please, please, please, I BEG you not to create yet more snarled traffic than there already is at this intersection. When I moved here 30 yrs go, there was no Fry's, Home Depot, Kohl's, BB&B, just an elementary school and Breuners. Traffic was bearable. Now from Central/Hamilton to Bascom may take me 10 min . . . Absurd. Park in E Bar parking lot at rush hour and just watch. What about a sit down eatery? Anything but "fast" food. Thank you for your consideration. Peyton Schuler

Nothing against In-N-Out as a franchise, but it will attract even more traffic to a corridor that is already much too crowded with traffic. As others have said, a sit down and stay restaurant, like the former Elephant Bar, creates far less traffic than a drive thru. This corridor already has Home Depot, Fry's, Panera, Bed-Bath and Beyond, Kohl's, etc. Its a mess. I live a few blocks away and avoid this corridor whenever I can. No, no, no to a drive thru restaurant on this property.

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.

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.

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

I love In-N-Out and would like one closer to home, but that is a HORRIBLE location for it. The traffic on Hamilton is extremely backed up during commute hours and a drive-thru would make it even worse. Please consider another type of restaurant that would not impact traffic so severely. Something healthy like a Veggie Grill or salad bar would be great!

For the love of God, no more crappy fast food places in Campbell! Can something healthy come to Campbell? A salad place, perhaps? Or a really nice upscale restaurant? Want a burger? There are several places that have opened in Campbell in the past 5 years for a burger. Aside from that, the traffic is horrible at that location and adding a restaurant with a drive thru there would be poor planning and would create safety issues on the road. No! No! No!

I don't live in Campbell but I drive to/through this area a lot. I also am not anti In-n-Out however this would be a terrible area to put one. it's already dangerous when coming off of 17 and trying to make a right onto Hamilton Ave. and get over left while the people coming from Bascom Ave. are trying to merge right, but adding the massive amounts of traffic to/from an In-n-Out would make this horrific. Also what do Kohls, Bed, Bath & Beyond and the other businesses there think of this? I do shop at these stores quite often however if In-n-Out and and it's traffic were there, I would hesitate to shop there much anymore. I would probably drive a little further or shop online to avoid the traffic issues.
