No, I know – it’s not In-N-Out. BUT In-N-Out HAS announced its first (almost) east coast location. So maybe there’s hope after all for Florida fast food lovers. If you’ve never been to a Jack-In-The-Box, it’s primarily a burger chain. But they also have pretty decent tacos and chicken sandwiches too. I lived in California for about 6 years and honestly, I went to Jack In The Box far more often than I did In-N-Out. In-N-Out locations always had lines that were too long and I’m impatient.

The biggest thing I remember about Jack In The Box was their creepy mascot. Their TV ads were nightmare fuel. But I liked their food, so it all evened out.

The west coast burger chain has announced plans to open up in both Florida and Arkansas, according to WESH. When I say it’s their first location, technically, it’s not. Florida apparently DID have Jack as a resident a long time ago but this will be the first time Jack In The Box has been in Florida in over three decades. So who’s getting one first? Sorry… it’s not Tampa.

Orlando is where Jack In The Box will pop up first. Lame pun intended. There’s no word yet on specifically where in Orlando this first JITB will be… or even when it’ll open. They say there will be just over a dozen locations opening between the two states, so hopefully Tampa isn’t far behind. [Source: WESH]
