Instant In-N-Out Building in Pleasant Hill

February 25, 2012 10:14 am · 121 comments

Holy Cow, look at that! Just two weeks ago, there was nothing but a concrete slab on the property, and now, there’s a building!

The future In-N-Out should be open by early summer, according to sources.

Thanks to “eknirb” for the photos of the soon-to-be In-N-Out on Contra Costa Boulevard & Chilpancingo in Pleasant Hill.

Nope, I have had In N Out before… a few times. Not impressed.

They should open a place called strictly salad & no sodas.
Have you seen the girth lines of your fellow Americans lately.

Or a strictly veggie burger joint.

Damn liberals ruining everything…

@CJ 96: uh except there is no Der Weinerschnitzel anywhere near here.

@DOJ 100… I am sure they had to remediate the soil before building, no?

@Home detention:
Great idea. Run right down to the bank, use your house as security for a small business loan, and go for it. I’m sure it will be a smashing success!

Thanks for the update, genius.

108 Claycord people too fat already February 27, 2012 at 11:05 AM

Just what we need, another burger place.
Like we don`t have enough fat,out of shape people around here already.

And of course it has to have a drive thru.
Because it`s hard for those over weight people to get out of their cars.
To order their double burgers with fries.

That reminds me of one of the comments on the Wells Fargo grand opening 1969 thread, it may have been a facebook comment. Somebody had asked “where’s all the fat people”?

@US_DOJ_Gov, Yes former Gas station. Should have kept it’s use the same due to soil and traffic.

They allowed the same thing to happen where the McDonald’s and Taco Bell is in Pleasant Hill across from Grocery Outlet on Contra Costa Blvd years ago. Both sites we’re Gas former stations.

All of these places are still Gas Stations, but of a different type.

We need to keep a better check on what Pleasant Hill City and/or planning dept. is doing before they put in some other stupid idea like the Safeway Gas station. There is a proposed Cell Phone tower at D.V.C. “disguised” as a Tree near homes and schools coming up for consideration. Another bad idea..

Moderation is key or you are going to have:

Anyone know where I can get a fried egg on a buger like they used to do at Fat Burger? They are gone now (probably because it took like 30 mins to get it).

113 Nick February 27, 2012 at 4:45 PM

@fat burger, Red Robin has one.

114 J February 27, 2012 at 4:54 PM

Hey, Fat Burger, you can get a fried-egg-burger at the Alamo Café anytime between 6am and 2pm Monday to Friday, or 7am to 2pm on Sunday. Yep you can have a burger at breakfast, or breakfast at lunch, or combine the two.

@O2BYZ #56, ask the waitress at Nation’s to hit the “Light Dressing” button on the cash register. My new favorite:
Light-Onions, Light-Lettuce, Light-Dressing, Extra Cheese.

Nation’s even has a “Cut-in-Half” button on their register.

I hope for a job there!

You bet your booty it’s a no-go @ no. Main. That was even a WORSE location than the one they got! But thank goodness this neighborhood has some intelligent and very dedicated people who had the forethought and the balls to tell them NO! Face it – their tacky buildings, signs, smells, & smog are just too much for just about any place anywhere. But this wont stop them from pushing their way in to anywhere they possibly can. People just HAVE to HAVE THEIR BURGERS. I’ll tell u one thing though – it isn’t FAST food. Its about the longest taking hamburger you’ll ever get!

118 CJ March 1, 2012 at 9:35 PM

Does In n Out smell worse than the McDonalds across the street or KFC just down the block? Get over it. Don’t like it, don’t eat there. Shorter wait for me.

119 JJ March 2, 2012 at 11:49 AM


Does In N Out smell worse than I-680 and all of the smog from the commuters? You live in a busy area. And this busy area would like a double double and french fries for lunch. Thank you!

120 JB March 5, 2012 at 11:02 PM

To JJ: No worse, jst a little more of it. I just wonder how & when we determine enough is ENOUGH!

@Jim White: All of these places are still Gas Stations, but of a different type.

Thanks for the laugh, Jim! So true.
