    The best quote I've read in ages, it's a reference to SoCal's In-N-Out Burger.

    However, the story is about the near-taco of another SoCal fast food staple, Jack-in-the-Box . . .

    The Jack in the Box Taco Is Disgusting and Perfect

    The In-N-Out Burger, with its grease-kissed bun and invisible mid-bite crunch, is probably what most people would associate with Southern California fast food. It’s delicious and a guilty pleasure, if chaste in a vaguely Judeo-Christian way. Think of it as the empty-calorie equivalent of getting a boner in church and letting it ride. But I’d argue that the real crown jewel of SoCal fast food is the Jack in the Box taco—a greasy, mushy crescent of nitrates and other salty ingredients that will probably be outlawed in 50 years when we discover it causes cancer.

    I love Jack tacos. Half the time they're almost gray from all the grease, and they're super generic, but something about them is so delicious. When I partied harder we'd send our one sober friend out to buy everyone Jack-in-the-Box. He'd come back with like 10 jumbo jacks and 20 tacos and everyone would cheer.

    How do they deep fry the middle while leaving the outer "crescent" crunchy?

    Sounds as bad as the Bob's 19 cent burgers we used to satiate the munchies with. Four bucks and 5 people were happy.

    Do they still have the antenna balls?

    Other than 2 times, I haven't been to a fast food place in 20 years. The Bob's here, closed long ago.

    I'm pretty sure you can still get them. My wife's old car had one forever. Her new car doesn't have an antenna, so I haven't had a reason to ask for another one.
