Jack In the Box – Convoy St

I couldn’t sleep.  I needed a hot apple turnover.  I needed delicious fried pastry and apple filling flavor.  In the old days I could go to Jack In The Box to satisfy my craving for a hot apple turnover.  Now I have to go to Izzy’s Cafe.  I still visit Jack on my birthday to get my free tacos on my birthday or if there is some other free food promotion.

Jumbo jack – single beef patty.  Mild beef flavor, bacon was crispy and had good flavor.  Lettuce and tomato was good and fresh.  This could be a great burger but the beef patty was the weak link.  It didn’t have fresh beef flavor, fresh grilled flavor, or seasonings.  Onion rings were greasy had a little crunch and onion flavor was overpowered by the greasy flavor.

Double jack was just like the Jumbo Jack except for there being 2 beef patties resulted in more beef flavor.

Taco ordered with meat only.  Large crispy fried tortilla with a small amount of meat paste.  Crunchy tortilla tasted of corn.  Meat paste was seasoned pretty good.  I prefer my beef shredded or in chunks carne asada style.  

Very quiet in the evening.
Cool drink machine.

I loved Jack In The Box in the old days when they had the cool Jack outside, gave out balloons to kids, and had delicious hot apple turnovers.  Nowadays I don’t feel like I belong here.

I don’t feel like stopping.

  1. Yes it’s just not the same as it once was. Perhaps they should consider getting their beef/meat from a different source. I’m sure it would result in a better tasting product. ?

  2. They should bring back their apple turnovers.
