Jack in the Box jumped out and surprised me

OK, first of all how do you say Jack in the Box in it's plural form?  Is it Jack in the Boxes or Jacks in the Box?  I spent hours talking to my brightest friends and we came to the conclusion that it should be Jack in the Boxes.  So with that said I've noticed that all the Jack in the Boxes are getting new signage and refurbishments.  I've always liked Jack in the Box for what it is but I still miss the old days when they had that weird 1000 island like dressing on their burgers. I guess it was more like 1000 island with a little mustard thrown in.  It just made them a little different.

The new Jack in the Box has many reasons to pick them if you're looking for fast food.  They're fast, they have several different burgers and they serve breakfast all day.  Not to mention they're 24/7 so you can always get something there if you're staying up late writing blogs.  Two kinds of fries, curly and regular is a nice touch too.  Did I mention they have one of those 101 different choices soda machines?  In all fairness those machines just make everything taste a little off but for some reason I feel like a kid in a candy store when I walk up to it at Jack in the Box.  Probably because I'm eating inside and they aren't too busy so I don't feel rushed.

Today I had a sourdough bacon cheeseburger, curly fries and a diet root beer.  Then a Fanta grape and then a diet Dr. Pepper to take home.  I took full advantage of my free refills and their 101 choices.  The burger was fine for a fast food burger.  Crunchy toasted sourdough bread, a rather dry burger patty, decent bacon slice.  I didn't really notice the cheese.  The curly fries are one of my favorites.  I like that spicy coating they put on them.  That's really all I can say about the food, it's fast and cheap so the bar isn't high from the start.  The crew is friendly and a nice touch I've noticed about Jack in the Box is they will call your order and wait until you walk up and get it.  They even ask if you need anything extra like jelly for Steph's breakfast sandwich.  She didn't need it but it was a nice touch.  Some sit down restaurants have worse service.

Well that it's for today.  Don't forget to sing Pop Goes the Weasel whenever you pass a Jack in the Box.  It'll make your day a little brighter. : )
