"It's made with three beef burger patties, three different kinds of cheese, and three kinds of bacon. If that's not enough for you, you can order up a Quad Bacon Cheesy Jack, which is more or less the same but made with four beef patties, four slices of cheese, bacon mayo, and bacon strips and bits."

And if the sodium doesn't get you, the four days worth of saturated fat will.

I had their tacos. That was suffering manifested into a solid form that was placed into a nasty, ruined tortilla.

/the only thing worse was the Burger King taco.

Dunno how they do it up in Boston, but in these parts we die like men.

Slowly, painfully, gasping for air after getting half way up a flight of stairs.

Honestly, I've met people that would eat food like this regularly, and it really is approaching "hard drug" levels of addiction with some.  Pushing 400 pounds, have to take a break when getting in and out of a car, wearing the same clothes for years because nothing comes in their size.  But. "gotta cram a days' worth of calories into one meal!"

/Fatty, but still in the "walking not waddling" stage.

I like their chicken fajita pita and egg roll as a not so terribly unhealthy option there.

Nice work. How are you doing it?


Thanks.  Just old fashioned diet and exercise.  Eating more salads / fruits / veggies, and getting out to exercise.  I'm also doing invisalign which helps because it makes you question whether you want to eat something because you have to brush/floss your teeth and clean the aligners every time you eat, so it helps with mindless eating.

Well, I'm working on it, Jack in the Box.

/had a couple of those triple cheeseburgers a couple weeks ago

If I opened a restaurant called Jane's Box would you eat there?

I used to love The Ultimate Cheeseburger.
Don't know if I could get through one now, though.

Personal anecdote:
I hadn't eaten at a jack in The box since they launched the ciabatta burger. I enjoyed it immensely. The recent trip had the most disgusting thing called a "hamburger" wrapped in paper and shoved in a box. I might as well as have been eating packets of salt for all the sodium in the drippy runny cheese. I sadly only ate about a third.

The tacos are still good though.

This is what I like about my fellow travelers.

Y'all hitting me with the hardest of questions.

I've always found that when a place tries to do all the foods, everything ends up mediocre. Like Cheescake Factory or restaurants that try to serve Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes. Do one thing well.

We had a place like that for a while, they had a HUGE.menu.  It was literally page after page of all sorts of dishes.  The joke going around was that, as advertised, they did serve "Continental Cuisine".  The bad news was that the continent in question was Antarctica...and everything was frozen.

Their kitchen was tiny, I think it was just a couple of microwaves and a Fryolator.  This resulted in Gough's Restaurant. Rule of Thumb:  If the pages of the menu, spread out, cover a larger area than the kitchen, you should lower your expectations.

the "everything" place 'crost the street from us has: mediocre sushi, subpar Chinese food, but surprisingly halfway decent Thai.  then again, the number of Thai dishes make up maybe 10% of their rather extensive menu ...at most. so I guess they picked a very few things to do ~well?

lol, I'm actually a little surprised they don't also sell chicken wings and french fries as many such places do.

/great, now I want skrimps pad thai

the last time i went to a jitb was July 1985 when i received a taco contaminated with aphids from unwashed lettuce. when  i tried to show it to the manager, discretely, she literally slapped the taco out of my hand in front of everyone. I wrote to jitb headquarters with all the pertient info. they supposedly fired the manager and gave me about seven pounds of coupons for free food, which were never used. i had told them i would not eat at jitb for the rest of my life, and i will not. so much better food out there.
