Carolina Jax in Jacksonville, Florida

I’m unsure if I found Carolina Jax (formerly Cackylacky’s) on social media first or if they found me. All I know is that when I saw what was happening at their then-only food truck, I knew one of their burgers would eventually be mine.

I had every intention of being at the grand opening of their first restaurant, but the pandemic had other plans for me. Carolina Jax’s new restaurant replaced another favorite in Jacksonville, the Stuffed Beaver.

Now with a full-sized kitchen to work out of, they’ve expanded the entire menu. As a result, the selection of burgers, sammiches (sandwiches), dogs, and sides is more extensive.

I did shed a tear when I saw a salad on the menu. However, I forgive them cause everything they do is magic, like the Police.

Cackylacky’s Food Truck

I would try Cackylacky’s burger for the first time at my 2019 Hamburger House Party competition. It was out of the norm for me to invite a restaurant to participate whose food I had never eaten, but I had a great feeling about them.

About a month later, I stopped at Pinegrove Market in Jacksonville during my book signing tour. But, unfortunately, I had only one other spot on my mind, and you guessed it.

The Cackylacky’s food truck was parked at an office building, and we tried to get there right about when they opened. A few folks beat us to it, but it didn’t matter. We were here at last.

Cacklacky’s was everything we knew it would be. There is so much hype surrounding food today, yet most can not back it up.

They most definitely did. I was craving another burger, and I still hadn’t finished the one I was eating. So it was that kind of situation.

Hamburger House Party Champs

I was ecstatic when Cackylacky’s said yes to my 2019 Hamburger House Party invite. Cackylacky’s came to win, and win they did.

They bested 19 other great burger joints that day and deserved the victory. So you can call them now and forever the 2019 Hamburger House Party People’s Champions.
