Food News: Jack In The Box Finally Coming to Indy

On Twitter the other day I saw a tweet from IndianapolisEater from wouldibuyitagain.com stating that Jack In The Box, the West coast based fast food chain, finally made official plans to start opening locations here in Indy.  I decided to find the story myself, and sure enough I found this article from the Indystar confirming that Jack plans to build the first restaurant on a site in Greenwood.  While this may be disheartening to all of us northsiders that long for a chain with a huge menu that serves breakfast all day we can find hope in the fact that Jack In The Box apparently has plans to jump into the Indy market full stop with locations all over the city.  I know it's just fast food, but I'm always at least a little excited when regional chains finally make their way into our area.  This is especially true after seeing so many of their commercials yet never eating their food.  Jack In The Box is the parent company of Qdoba, of which I'm a huge fan, so I have to say I'm optimistic about their burger chain.  Only time will tell.  Now if we could only get those people at Sonic to open up some restaurants around here.

Fried tacos - yes!

As for Sonic, there used to be one in the Castleton area when I first moved here (about 6 years ago) - sad day when they were no longer here.

Yeah and Sonic used to be in Bloomington when I was in college also, but by the time I figured out that it was there and where it was located it had already closed.

Wouldn't mind an In and Out either. Had that while I was in San Jose, California and it was pretty good.

Brent said...

I would love to have an In And Out also. I'd probably be more excited about that truthfully since I've heard so many good things. Not sure if they'll ever venture this far East though.

oh yeah, In and Out is IMO a level or two about Jack in the Box. But I'm still pretty stoked, brah. Thanks for posting the news.

Serious Eats recently had a fun post about ordering the entire In and Out menu.

There was also a Sonic on E. Washington St. and Post when I moved here in 2001. It closed a year or two later.
