Quoted from Blitzburgh99:
I'd give them a vote just for their fries.
Quoted from onemoresean:
Not the best, but a Sourdough Jack can hit the spot.

I used to like Jack in the Box burgers, but they went away from the sesame seed buns to those awful what ever kind of buns the have now. I rarely eat there anymore, and usually don't get burgers there. I mean, they ruined the Jumbo Jack of all things! Same goes for the Ultimate Cheeseburger.
Appeares I'n not the only one that feels that way: https://www.change.org/p/jack-in-the-box-jack-please-bring-back-the-sesame-seed-bun
Quoted from Frax:
Really? There's one about 3 miles from my house in Dallas.... it's a shared split with a Long John Silvers, but they've been around here for as long as I can remember. A bit scarce these days, but hanging on with LJS.
Used to have one here in Norwalk with a drive thru, one in nearby Stonewood Mall in the food court, One on Imperial Hwy in La Habra that had car hop service,and I believe there used to be one in Fullerton (maybe O-Din can confirm this one) but they're all gone now.
Edit: There also used to be an A & W / Long John Silvers in Manhattan Beach. Also Gone.
The last LJS (not KFC / LJS or other combination) I saw was in Altus Oklahoma two years ago. There's one in Winslow Arizona just off I-40. But the last Long John Silvers I knew of in SoCal was in Riverside, and it's closed also. A group of us that go to Banning for tech days used to stop by there on the way back. At least there's a Raising Cains in Riverside to go to on the way back now.
Quoted from MikeS:
...When we do the poll for best fast food chicken place my vote goes to Raising Cane's over Chick-fil-A.
This 100% ! They're basically the same business model In 'N Out except that they sell chicken strips instead of Burgers. Their fries a just okay, but the Texas Toast the serve is great. And you get quite a bit of food for your dollar there. The only problem is that like In 'N Out, they tend to have long lines. A new one just opened in Anaheim last week that I had to walk away from because the lines (inside and the drive thru) were so long.
Serious question: I don't think I've seen Sonic mentioned here. How are the burgers?
The nearest one to me is at least a dozen miles away. I've literally seen more of them outside of California than in California. If I go by one is it worth popping in and trying their food?
