A 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.
The proposed location would be only the second in Central Contra Costa County. Currently, the closest In-N-Out to Walnut Creek is in Pleasant Hill. Otherwise, you’ve got to trek to San Ramon, Pinole, or Pittsburg for a double-double.
The residents of Walnut Creek will have several opportunities to voice their concerns at up to four public hearings.
A second In-N-Out was planned for nearby Pleasant Hill several years ago, but scrapped after public opposition.

UPDATE: Developers have rescinded their application for this In-N-Out citing that neighbors are having real concerns & anxiety over the proposed location.
