I hope this means they will put one in my town.

I only want it for the tacos.

gfid: Hmmm...greasy, greasy tacos


I just really like that they build the taco, and THEN deep fry the whole farking thing. Lettuce, cheese, hotsauce, meat and all. I loved the shiat out of them when I lived out west. They've been creeping closer and closer to Ohio for a decade or more, finally have one in Dayton, just need them to creep the last 200 miles in this direction, heh.

Maybe the headline is too obvious, but I still laughed.

Those tacos are nasty and are really only edible when extremely drunk or extremely hungover (but not together on the same bender).

A friend and I ordered 20 bucks worth one night. The kid was " I need to ask my manager" it was allowed and I am so lucky I had hardwood floors because there were tacos, half eaten tacos and other taco detritus all over the living room floor.

I'm pretty sure the tacos come to the store frozen with only the meat concoction in the folded tortilla. The lettuce, cheese and sauce is added after frying.

They make a decent burger for the money, a fair bit of variety to the menu, breakfast all day, Munchie Meals, and they have curly fries. Sounds like a winning business model to me.

Their Ultimate Breakfast Sandwhich, the simple Breakfast Jack or the Supreme Croissant are all winners for when I am not quite ready for lunch yet.

I hope they bring back their rewards program.

Jack In the Box has funny commercials. And good eggrolls.

So openly marketing to stoners in Colorado and Washington is working?

Good.

Thanks, legalized marijuana.

I remember when they were 3 for a dollar.  You bought 60 tacos or did the price go up?

They are 2 for $.99 which has been the price since the mid nineties.

two-fer 99c when this occurred in the early 00's in Galveston.

Once when I was working on the Safety Console in MIssion Control on the super a.m. shift I decided to get some breakfast from jack-in-the-crack before I went in. Dumbass me got in the drive-thru line before I realized I was in line with post-bar drunks at 2:30 a.m. Took forever.

I can remember when they were owned by Ralston Purina (the same company that made pet food). They also were one of the only places open 24/7 when I was in college, although it was only the drive through after midnight I think. But if you went through the drive through you got to shout into a clown's mouth for your order! Super Taco's at 3 A.M. were great!

They contain beef, and in some areas, beef and chicken.

One of the few food companies that openly court stoners, so I'll always support em.
