In 1950 a man named Robert O'Petersen built the first Jack-in-the-Box restaurant at El Cajon and 63rd streets in San Diego, California. The restaurant was originally built for drive-thru and walk-up service only, and customers would speak into a clown's mouth to order their food. The clown was blasted to smithereens with explosives in a 1980 advertising campaign, however, signifying a shift toward a more diverse adult menu. 

The signature Jumbo Jack Hamburger has been on the menu since 1974.
