New commercial of Jack in the Box of people stripping is disgusting
Posted by Agapeins on 08/29/2009
I find the most recent Jack in the box advertisements on TV disgusting. This is supposed to be a family oriented restaurant. If this is the only way they feel they can advertise their product, I will not be buying any of their food again. They need to get back to where they belong ./... in the households with children. Shame on them!

Are they like hot people( and by that I mean female people) stripping or nerdy old people stripping. It makes a huge difference on my opinion of the validity of this complaint.

EXACTLY slim! It's ugly people. If it was pretty people I bet there would be no problem. At least not on my end.
I have to give this a VH, due to the ugly people.

It certainly has me tempted to go find and view this commercial. I doubt that's the reaction poster was going for though.

I voted you all helpful!

How much can they really strip on regular TV? OP, where do you live?? We don't get any JITB commercials out here in the wild west.

I need to see this new Jack commercial!

I've seen the commercial. Based on the people in it, I should have been at the casting call. It would have been a sure thing. >:-X

Another successful ad by the JIB marketers!

*BK ads agree*

It's been on twice during the Cowboys game. Nothing like granny panties to dampen the mood.

Yaya and Ben, I posted the commercial on the forum side.

Am I the only one who finds it odd folks will take time to get all up in arms over a commercial, but those same folks rarely, if ever, get up in arms over things that MATTER?!

Raven, you arent the only one.

Although there are no Jack In The Box restaurants in Ohio, many of the national cable channels air them. I have seen it on Tru TV and on G4. I especially liked the last scene where the underwear lands on Mr. Jack In The Box's face.

Food Poisoning
Posted by Be4dawn2 on 08/19/2013
APPLE VALLEY, CALIFORNIA -- This is a warning I wanted to get out to the Town of Apple Valley because I am not sure who to speak with. I ate food from Jack in the box on Apple Valley Rd. in Apple Valley CA.Right away I became severely sick. I was vomiting non-stop, very weak, fatigue, up-set stomach, no appetite, and could barely drink any water. I went 2 days of this then had to seek medical attention and was told I got Food Poisoning. Day four I have since lost 10 pounds and have only be able to hold down water, toast and apples. I plan on taking this complaint to the Department of Health and anyone willing to listen. Thank You for your time.

If you became ill immediately after eating at Jack in the Box, it likely wasn't their food. If it was food poisoning, it was probably something you had eaten earlier in the day.
Posted by John Nicholson on 2013-08-19:
I concur. If you experienced symptoms shortly after eating, it was not caused by something you ate at Jack in the Box. Symptoms of food poisoning take from a few hours to a few days to show up. You might want to reflect on what you ate and where in the day of so preceding your visit to Jack in the Box.

I would like to say thumbs up to the black girl that works at the Jack In The Box in New Caney, Tx. you should hire more people like this. Theres nothing like having a good person that knows her thing when it comes to good customer service. Tell her to keep up the good work.

Loaded Commercial
Posted by Pamdolanart on 12/03/2012
AUBURN, CALIFORNIA -- I am writing to complain about the recent Jack In The Box commercial which shows three supposedly college students eating "loaded" sandwiches on a lawn. This commercial makes your company looks like it approves of young people smoking weed. Why else do you have girl stagger around the lawn shouting how she is so loaded. You are alluding to the fact that it's ok to be stoned. I will never ever do business with your company. That commercial is disgusting and should be pulled. I have also written the CEO of Jack In The Box. I know I am not the only person is offended by this commercial. Do you want our nation to become a country of "dumb and dumber"? Keep it up. We are headed that way with people like you.

Sounds like Mr. Jack is getting his ad ideas from Mr. Karcher's ad agency, R.I.P. (Carl's/Hardees)
Posted by Pancakes!!! on 2012-12-03:
Maybe, the ad was for WA, it's legal here.
Posted by madconsumer on 2012-12-03:
it all depends on the commercial writer of the script. to me, loaded means to be pissed, or as americans say, drunk. which is legal. not sure why anyone would say it means drugged.

Customer Service on Take-Out Food
Posted by Lindamoore11 on 06/26/2012
3459 ALTAMESA, FORT WORTH, TEXAS -- I like your many choices of food that you have on your menu, but I don't like the customer service I receive on take-out food at location 3459 Altamesa, Fort Worth, Tx. I haven't eaten there in a while because of the same reason, but I thought maybe by now it might have changed. I went to the store on 06/24/2012 and ordered 1 Jr Jack value meal and a total of 4 Tacos (time:6:49) and at this time they were not busy. I got home and and did not receive my tacos.

This is the reason I quit going there before. I live about 2 miles round trip and I don't like eating my food cold, because I have to go back to pick up the rest of my order and all they can say without remorse that they are sorry. I have worked at a bank for 16 years and dealt with people all the time. I appreciate your time on this. Thanks, Linda Moore

my suggestion is to check your order before you leave. honestly any apology a manager makes is just lip service.
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-06-26:
If you wish to keep patronizing this location, it would be a great offensive maneuver to check your bag before you leave. You shouldn't have to do so, but at a fast food joint change may be a long time coming.
Posted by madconsumer on 2012-06-27:
jack in the box has sold tacos for at least 25 years. i have eaten them when i lived in dallas.

Wrong orders
Posted by Diannencooper on 02/19/2012
I went to the drug store in Humble and stopped at Jack in the box for a Breakfast Jack. Got back to my home in Huffman Texas. Opened the sandwich and it was a Hamburger of some kind, dripping with mayonaise and I was so disgusted. I tried to call them and their phone was messed up.

I suddenly remembered why I stopped going to Jack in the Box plus the offensive commercial on television.

Management can make a big difference.

I stopped going to a TGIF after a management change. The people were the same, but more stressed due to the new guy draconian style, and the food prep went downhill. The previous manager was outstanding.

I tried complaining to corporate, and nobody seemed to care. I guess they wanted to give the new guy a chance. That was a year ago - I should try going back to see if he's gone.

Contact corporate and let them know how bad things are now at this location:

You May Get Arrested or Killed for Complaint at Jack
Posted by Lone Wrangler on 07/22/2011
LIVINGSTON, TEXAS -- We went into Livingston Texas jack In The Box, saw a local biker member working and she waited on us very rudely after seeing it was us. You see she had threateend to kill us before and also her biker gang had. After being treated rudely we called Jack at Corporate because jack says he wants to hear from you about your experience. Corporate called the Jack In The Box who told the employee who waited 7 days, went to Police and tried to get criminal charge sfiled on us. Police came to our home to arrest us. We called Corporate to ask why and tell them we are afraid of these people, please stop causing us harm. Corporate says they will tell her we called back and encourages their employees to call Police if they feel threatened by a customer. SO! Complain on an employee to Corporate at Jack In The bOx and risk being murdered by local biker gang or arrested by Police. Anyone know where we can find a good lawyer who will sue over this. We are afraid of these people and we cannot sleep as well as health issues. On top of that Corporate has vowed to cause us more harm from this complaint. BEWARE, you better not file any complaint on Jack....

We had a business in Livingston, 2 of these gang members came in, pulled a knife and tried to slash wife, yelling you are dead mother f---ers, we called 911, Cops came out, high fived the gang memebrs who told us we are dead, we f--ked with the wrong people, and let them go. Even though they had 911 tape, and found knife they hid, Cops said our word against theirs. Now this episode with Jack In The Box...more death threats from this gang now...... This employee of Jack's has called and told us she has some "ni--ers" who will take care of us tonight. Thanks Jack, we really needed this stress in our lives for eating at Jack In The Box Anyone, please help get media involved or find us a good Lawyer

To be fair, I just took a look at the website for the San Jacinto High Rollers. It has a lot of information and includes community events that the club has participated in. Two sides to every story and I'd be remiss if I made any judgement without keeping that in mind (I also note there's a wheel chair in the background of the picture and that sort of looks like a picnic or something). Neutral on this.
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-07-22:
Same here, Alain. I am completely neutral.
Posted by clutzycook on 2011-07-22:
Ok, so you willingly went into the establishment after you saw that someone who had threatened your life in the past was working there? If it had been me, I would have just turned on my heel and walked out.
Posted by SteveWiginowski on 2011-07-22:
I'm not really surprised that you were treated rudely. People really do get angry when you call the cops on them (regardless if it was warrented or not). It's unfortunate that nothing was done about the threats against your wife.

Like cc said, sometimes you have to know when to not get yourself into a situation. I think it's a far stretch to say that if you complain about Jack in the Box, you risk being murdered or arrested by the police. I think it's more fair to say that if you know members of gangs that you tried to get put in prision and you see them again, you should be careful about what you do.
Posted by trmn8r on 2011-07-22:
This goes far beyond a Jack issue. I don't think JITB corporate is your solution at all, because even if they were able to do something this would happen at again at whatever other establishment in which you happen to run into one of these people.

You said in the first reply above, you had a 911 incident involving this same group of individuals, and the police said IT was a "he said, she said" incident.

In my opinion, you need to try to avoid these people unless you have solid proof a crime has occurred.

Parroting clutzy.

I agree with alain, while this is a very scary situation, I wonder what the full story is behind it. I would definitely not go into a place where someone threated me either.
