In-N-Out Burger another step closer to Highland location?

MIchael Sorba has written a story that appeared in today’s edition of The Sun that indicates that we may be one step closer to having an In-N-Out Burger in Highland, ironically right in front of L.A. Fitness.

When we last left the burger drama, at issue was a sign.

The proposed site of the fast food restaurant on Greenspot Road is in a center that isn’t directly next to the 210 Freeway, but developers wanted to put a sign next to the freeway, and In-N-Out would not build without a freeway-adjacent sign.

The planning commission denied the request and the developer initially tried negotiating sign space with the developer of the site closest to the freeway.<

The developers of the L.A. Fitness site eventually sold the In-N-Out site to the developers of the center adjacent to the freeway, which appears to have solved the sign problem.

Confusing, I know!

In-N-Out one step closer to opening in Highland?


In today’s Sun newspaper, we read Michael Sorba’s story of a developer’s continuing quest to bring an In-N-Out Burger to Highland.

One of the stumbling blocks seemed to be a sign near the 210 freeway which the developer wanted to use promote the fast food restaurant and other businesses at the center in which it would be located.

However, the center (on Greenspot Road) isn’t directly adjacent to the freeway.

The city’s planning commission initially denied the sign request and the developer appealed that decision. Now the developer has withdrawn that appeal and is instead working the developer whose center is next to the freeway to get space on that center’s existing sign.


With all the sign-wrangling seeming to be over, it appears that the Highland In-N-Out will soon be a reality.

I can almost smell the grilled onions now…
