The proposed In-N-Out eatery on Harbor Boulevard near Chapman Avenue in Garden Grove is out, for the time being.
According to the city planning department, the application to build a 3,867-square foot restaurant with drive-through lanes on a 57,882-square foot lot has been withdrawn by the applicant. It was to go before the city Planning Commission on Thursday, Jan. 18 for approval.
The building was originally a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant, built in the Fifties in the “googie” futuristic style of architecture popular in the Eisenhower era. Proposed were some efforts to retain the original look of the Bob’s, but preservationists have been vocal in supporting a more “retro” look.
Under the proposal, the existing restaurant and adjacent Rocky Market would be demolished.
