    I don't eat them often but I kind of like them. I don't like Jack-in-the-Box hamburgers

    I used to take those things down but got ill when I ordered them at the Siegan/Perkins location. It was bad and haven't had the courage to give them another chance.

    Is this a rhetorical question...or have you actually never seen one?

    They are deep fried with a piece of American cheese in the middle with some "taco meat" which resembles canned dog food. They also have lettuce inside that I think has also been deep fried.

    My ex-husband was from San Diego and grew up eating these. In 1995, we once drove from Baton Rouge to Houston just to be around Jack-in-the-Box for a couple of days. Incidentally, that was the year we split up. Coincidence? Hmmm...maybe not.

    That's real dedication. One time I thought about driving from Baton Rouge to Hammond to get some Krystal Burgers but I didn't actually do it

    I guess you could call that dedication. We were so freakin' poor that both of our cars' A/C's were broken, so we rented a compact car to make the drive (which we couldn't afford.) And I was only 24, so come to find out, I wasn't old enough to rent the car, but he was three years older.

    I will use them when cooking up stir fry, but under no circumstances do I use the included seasoning packet...

    I've never been able to bring myself to eat any, ever. My girls used to. I thought they still did but when I showed them the article on yahoo, I learned they no longer do.

    I feel the same way about SubWay... went for lunch one day back in '99... ended up in the ER with a major case of food poisoning... Will never eat there again.

    If I'm hungry and there is no choice but fast food I almost always choose Subway. Just look at the other choices

    I'm not paying someone else to make me a damn sandwich. I can do that at home.
