I've been chomping at the bit to try the Jack in the Box that popped up (get it - haha) in my old neighborhood of Pleasant Ridge since they tore down my favorite gas station...finally I was in the area with some free time!
I wasn't really hungry - but for the blog - I had to try something - since I had 20 minutes to kill. And the sign was intriguing with two tacos for 99 cents!
The burger was fine - nothing too amazing - but similar to a Wendy's single really. I liked it fine...

Why did I list all that out? Cuz that was the oddest damn taco I have ever eaten in my entire life! It was stale, crispy, greasy, beany, saucy and just odd and a slice of American cheese to top it off! I was just so boggled - I thought there was no way that it had actual beef in it - but it does! The strangest thing was that I really thought it was kinda gross - and then after half a taco - I had to have more!!!! I literally set it down and thought I was done...but no - I had to eat the rest! Then I ate the other one! What the hell? Those are some odd f'ing tacos! I've heard from others they are pretty addictive...uh-oh!
Why Should You Go There? You obviously have to try the tacos. They're open 24 hours - so head over now - or at 3am - or whenever!
