    We had a location open up about a year ago and I swear it was packed to the gills for months. There were always cops outside directing traffic it was so packed. I finally tried a hamburger and I couldn't finish it was so bad. Trust me, I have never done that before.

    Their food is worse than their commercials are good. We all called it Jack In The Crack growing up.

    The last Burger I had from there tasted like a bad sausage patty, I do like the taco's though.

    A lot of these shows are just serial dramas dressed up for an audience other than housewifes or teenage girls. Yeah, you get into the show. That's the way serial dramas work. It doesn't make them Ibsen.

    The Sopranos was great, The Wire was very good, if uneven. A lot of the rest (Breaking Bad, MadMen, etc...) are way overrated.
    Spot on. I, specifically, am not blown away by Breaking Bad as seemingly everyone else on the planet is anymore.

    Everything has to be the greatest or the worst now.

    Did you go to the one near Greenwood Park Mall or the one on the east side??

    I tried to go there several times when they first opened but it was like a 45 minute wait. I think the bloom is off the rose because they don't seem crowded now at all.

    I guess you can argue that chart success doesn't mean anything, and I'm sure that there are many lists where the Beatles are on top.

    But 100 plus top 40 hits all by yourself is pretty tough to beat.
    Sure thing, but Elvis didn't have very strong competition for those spots. Not that The Beatles particularly did either, but it was a bit more by their time.

    I'm also more inclined to give the edge to The Beatles, seeing as their music was a bit more artistically sincere, and as such, has remained very relevant even long after their career ended. The Beatles still influence tons of artists.

    btw, are those American chart numbers or worldwide charts? I'd never heard that number before.

    I've eaten at Jack exactly once. Up to now I've assumed I just ordered the wrong item on the menu.

    After the Alpha-Beta-Gamma of McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's there's a geographic battle for the Delta spot: Jack-in-the-Box and Carl's in the West, Hardee's in the South and Midwest, Kristal in the Deep South, White Castle on the East Coast.

    If no competition were the case, Franki Valli would have 100 plus Billboard chartings....so would Connie Francis. Brenda Lee.

    And Elvis charted all through the 1960s and 1970s...

    the charts I cite are US. Over 100 top 100 hits...it's impressive.

    I think Elvis is the top selling artist of all time worldwide- over a billion sold.

    Having said all that, most of the rock critics would agree with you. It's a parlor game and it's all about taste.

    The one in Greenwood, the east side one is impossible to get in and out of.

    Not to discount what you've said, but I imagine a lot of that has to do with Elvis being an American artist topping American charts, and the Beatles being the Brit band, Elvis got a head start here, they got theirs back in the UK.
