Anyone get the free tacos at Jack-in-the-Box today?

Saw the ads last night that Jack is giving away free tacos after 2 p.m. Tuesday. Got off the work about 3 o'clock to check out my local Jack. Was pretty busy over there had to wait maybe 15 min. to get my free tacos (limit is two per person). How was your local Jack liked?

Re: Anyone get the free tacos at Jack-in-the-Box today?

I just drove past mine a few minutes ago. Line of cars around the block for the drive-thru. A shitload of students/customers spilling out of the restaurant.

I'm sorry but I can't get that worked up about 2 free bad tacos.

Supposedly Jack has "improved" the tacos. Anyone notice anything different about them?

I could make better tacos at home with a taco kit. Why would anyone wait 15 minutes for a fast food taco?

The line for drive-thru by my local Jack was incredibly long. At least a 30/40 minute wait.

People are stupid.

There's always a large group of people that will go to any expense for something free.

I wouldn't consider putting anything from this establishment into my body, free or not.
It's even bad by fast food standards....shudder.

I love Jack in the Box tacos, but at a dollar, I don't care enough to wait longer just to get them for free.

I love the fast food hating crowd that always has to chime in

There are two types of people in the world, those who like Jack in the Box tacos, and those who don't and those who don't can go eat at Taco Bell. I love JITB Tacos.

I wouldn't even make a turn and drive a block for food I could buy with the change in my car's cup holder much less wait 15 minutes.

Shouldn't Jack-In-The-Box change their name to "Creampie", you know, just to keep up with the times?

My brother used to work at the place in the Midwest where they make those tacos. You really don't want to know what goes into the "meat" paste they squirt into those puppies.

All you need to know about Jack in the Box taco filling is it's made by Purina... a pet food company.

Your usage of the word "squirt" to describe that process already has me horrified.

Pretty much anything you eat at Jack in the Crack is going to lead to some kind of squirting.

Back in the '70s, when I was a kid with a cast iron stomach, I loved going there. Now, not so much.

I wasn't going to wait 15-30 minutes for something that is worth a dollar.

Nope the tacos are the same..

Although they just recently added onion rings, which are alright.

Onion rings on the tacos?

Where I live in SoCal, as far back as I can remember (going back 40 years), they've always had onion rings.

Tacos taste the same to me as they were 10+ years ago when I worked there in high school. And yeah, I recall there always being onion rings.

There was free poop on the subway platform today.

I didn't bite on that deal, either.

Wait a minute...

Is it really worth a whole dollar?
