IN-N-OUT OF SANTA BARBARA

Word on the street is that In-N-Out Burger has been scouting for a new location in the lower Milpas area. When driving southbound on the 101 freeway there is an exit for Milpas Street North, that forms a tight curve around a property currently for sale at 926 Indio Muerto, the home of Mirales Automotive (behind Dal Pozzo tire). I spoke with Radius Group, who is managing the sale of the property, and was told that In-N-Out burger did approach them and express interest in the spot. In-N-Out determined that there are various problems with having a restaurant at that location, including the position of a stop light and the difficulty in getting a drive-thru permit. I’m told that there have not yet been any negotiations and that if a deal with In-N-Out Burger doe eventually happen with this spot it is a long way off.

    That offramp is one of the most badly configured in the county. Due to its screwy lane changes, it’s highly confusing at best; downright dangerous at the worst. I can just imagine what chaos would result there with the addition of something as heavily trafficked as an In ‘n Out. Also, isn’t there some kind of ordinance against new drive-thrus in the city?

    OMG, can you imagine the clusterF of traffic this would create. I’m all for In-n-Out, but not there!

  3. Paul says:

    The location for 101 SB commuters would be very easy IN, but very difficult OUT.

    I’m so relieved to hear I’m not a total incompetent for detesting that offramp! Thanks for the input.

    the worst part of the offramp design is that it is initially off camber and then closing radius.
