A new 57,882-square foot In and Out burger restaurant project is planned to be built on the site of the existing Coco’s Restaurant and Bakery at Chapman Avenue and Harbor Boulevard in Garden Grove. The listed square footage includes the eatery, the drive-through lanes and parking areas.
The restaurant alone will include 3,867 square feet.
According to Maria Parra, senior planner for the City of Garden Grove, the proposal will go before the city planning commission on Jan. 4.
The new eatery, which includes a large inside dining area as well as drive-through lanes, will be a blend of the old and the new. Originally built in the Fifties as a Bob’s Big Boy, the restaurant later became a Coco’s. While the “footprint” of the building will be demolished, some familiar aspects will remain.
“They’ll be keeping the existing roof line, columns and signage,” said Parra, in a nod to the “googie” style of architecture, which was popular in the Eisenhower era.
In order to provide parking for the restaurant, the existing Rocky’s Liquor store on Chapman will be demolished and added to the parcel. Motorists will find access to the parking and the drive-through lanes on Chapman and Harbor.
Not included in the project will be the Walgreen’s pharmacy at the corner.
