Jack's Back!  
Found the new Jack in the Box in Golden. Five months late! The map lied, it was off by blocks.

Mmm, yay. Colorado's fast food is now officially civilized (okay, Wendy's is enough for civilization, really. But I missed the Yack).

Now, need to find the Culver's.
In the mood: happyhappy

Can you imagine a 200,000+ population town like Corpus Christi doesn't have a Jack in the Box OR Burger King? Sure it's the birthplace of Whataburger, but daaaamn. And no Arby's, no steak n shake, certainly no culvers.

Really? Wow, that's hard to imagine.

We don't have any Steak 'n' Shakes here, either (or Whataburger, or In 'n Outs), but we do got Lamar's Donuts! (Best donuts in the world -- and I grew up a few blocks from the original in Kansas City. Also Krispy Kreme, but even Shipley's is better than that.)

Hmmm, also no White Castle!

I'd be happy with any of them coming here, but it's also nice to have a reason to travel. :)

They barely got Krispy Kreme there in Corpus like 4 years ago and it was a huge deal only to completely DIE a few years later. If you knew how backwards that town was you'd understand why they don't have good food(and are the only town of any size to be missing the bare essential fast food places.

We are getting In n Outs soon alot with a Fat Burger. We have a local donut called Round Rock Donuts that have the nice sticky crumbly coating and tastier dough. :9 We so need a white castle though. ;_;

You know bad? Colorado Springs had a Fuddruckers that managed to fail.

And if you knew Colorado Springs, you'd know how impressive that is.

Considering I almost went to CSU yes that's fucked up... Then again Fuddruckers isn't a quality institution.

Not quality? The company, or the food, or what?

I like Fuddruckers well enough. Although I've seen a few scary ones (Great Falls, Montana, anyone?), the ones in Denver are fine.

Mmmm, Steak 'n' Shake!! Yeah, that'd be yummy.

And yay Lamar's! Who needs Krispy Kreme? (The one out here in Aurora went out of business, BTW.)

When we travel, we like to go to D'Angelo's in New England, and In 'n' Out in the Southwest. We used to go to Roy Rogers in Pennsylvania, but I don't know if they're still around.

White Castle didn't impress us all that much, though.

Of course, we used to go to Sonic when we traveled, but now they have them here.

Oh, and there's Lottaburger in NM...

Yes, I think it's good that we still have some things that are regional.
