Bay Area city refusing to have their own In-N-Out Burger? It’s true. Walnut
Creek residents are mostly opposed to adding a combination In-N-Out and
drive-thru only Starbucks at the corner of 2nd Avenue and North Main
Street. It’s not so much the In-N-Out itself they oppose as it is the
traffic congestion and noise it would cause.

Hill. Otherwise, you’ve got to trek to San Ramon, Pinole, or Pittsburg for

Burger drops plans for
second Pleasant Hill restaurant
PLEASANT HILL — Fans of In-N-Out Burger will have
to make do with just one location in Pleasant Hill.
popular fast-food chain has withdrawn its application to build a
3,500-square-foot restaurant with a drive-through lane and outdoor seating
on a vacant 1-acre parcel on North Main Street along the border of Pleasant
Hill and Walnut Creek.
after In-N-Out submitted its development application in February 2010, the
company faced strong opposition from a vocal group of Walnut Creek
residents who believed the restaurant would bring traffic, noise and other
nuisances to their neighborhood.
critics said the plan didn’t include enough parking, and they worried that
customers would take a shortcut through the narrow side streets behind the
site to reach the opposite side of Interstate 680.
To appease opponents, In-N-Out reduced the size of
the restaurant and removed eight of the proposed outdoor seats. The revised
development plan also moved the building, drive-thru lane, menu board and
speaker farther from the houses directly behind the site. But In-N-Out
balked at a long list of conditions the city proposed in fall 2011,
including steps the company would have to take to prevent customers from
parking on residential side streets. The In-N-Out on Contra Costa Boulevard
opened in May 2012 and immediately drew large crowds.
