I went to an In-N-Out burger in California and it was REALLY crowded? Who thought it would be a good thing to have one on the corner of Main and Grundy? Isnt there enough traffic in that area? I would love to know where everyone is going to park....considering the parking lot holds about 8 cars!!

Bad Move is say!!!

I dont mind giving someone a break but that corner is WAY too busy to have a burger joint on the corner....

I am more surprised that anyone thinks the place has enough parking. Speaking of BUSY corners...will we ever see arrows on Union/Main or Furrows/Main...these are very busy intersections!

Is this a done deal?
If so, when can we expect the start of operations?

Notice the sign says Joe's In N Out Burger. Although I do love the original I highly doubt it is the California chain considering that chain is only in four states.

Even if it is just a knock off rather than random chain expansion the food will be great. But to have it on that corner is a TERRIBLE idea. Being a resident of Holbrook for 30 years now I would have never imagined traffic on Main St. Too bad 5 corners couldn't stick around.

The real place is amazing.. But, like Lisa says, the traffic would be insane. If you ever have been to All American Burger in Nassau on the south shore, that is how bad it would be. we would not be able to pass that intersection between 5 and 8.... i live a mile from there and i am nervous....

I can't believe this guy did this..I saw it being renovated and used the same colors and look of the real in and out burger, only to slap his name on it with the in and out wording..in and out corporation could drag this guy on for months in court while he loses money on his investment. He has no choice but to change the colors, the name, and possilbly the decor inside...ugh I am surprised Town of Islip approved this..Brookhaven wouldn't have..

I was almost fooled about this place. Does this guy think that by adding "Joes" to the name that he can get away with it. This place in the west coast is awsome. He's got to change the name because this is just another generic burger place. If you want the real thing, then you have to go to the west coast.

I die for In and Out burgers - my fave is the double double(for those who know). If this guy is intending to put his name and try to make it seem as if it's the original, then shame on him.
No burger joint compares to In&Out.

If this is in fact a fake and you want a L.A burger joint there is a FatBurger in Massapequa!!!

drove by yesterday and noticed the words 'In and Out' are now removed... but red and white paint still there... maybe it would be easier for this guy to look into a franchise with the 'real' California In & Out ?

IN-N-OUT doesnt sell their franchises....and even if they were going to open up on the East coast....Holbrook would not be the place they would pick. LOL

the best Los Angeles style burger
on the island is at Johnny Rockets at Roosevelt Field mall..
JR is actually based on the famed LA burger joint called The Apple Pan..I bought a very interesting DVD called "Burger Town" at www.burgertowndvd
which tells the story behind the
southern cal burger scene.

Guess Phil Nolan's belt size will go up a few notches (again)! Wasn't he the guy who said the Republicans drove Islip into the ground?? Now this mess!! Think it's time for Phil to go "IN AND OUT"!!!

I guess you are the one that is STUPID since you didnt read the first post on this thread where I asked the same thing. SO maybe you should READ instead of calling others STUPID.
and for you information...I do live near the location...that is why I made this post...because I am upset....dope!

I really can't believe you're that ignorant. It was your nasty post to me about "what's this have to do with this post" that started our little spat. Apparently you do not realize that the Town of Islip, with Supervisor Phil Nolan at the helm, approved the building permit that allowed this guy to build at that location. I was well aware of your first post and agreed with you. I was attempting to point out that our local politicians, once again, dogged us. If you live locally, then you will recall that Phil Nolan told us it was the Republicans that were destroying the town with inappropriate development. How much more "inappropriate" can you get with this project?? I rest my case....Thank You!!!
