How should I dress when I go to a job interview at a fast food restaurant?

Today, I just got a call from Jack in The Box telling me that I've got an interview on Friday at 3 o' clock. I think that I should just wear something casual, but not too casual. Something simple and yet nice. But I could be wrong. So all I'm asking is if I'm going the right direction or the wrong. And if it's the wrong way, then please give me some tips/ideas, please. Thank you!

You can wear a dress or skirt but a pair of slacks or khakis and a blouse or top will be fine. Avoid jeans, t-shirts, and sports shoes. You want to be different and appear that you're serious not nonchalant about getting the job.

I think you'll be all right if you'll wear some decent jeans and a blouse/shirt from Hollister or wherever. I mean have you seen the type of people that usually work in McDonald's, for example? Most don't seem to give a rat's asss about how they dress. I consider places like Jack in the Box, In-N-Out and Carl's Jr. a... More

You can never dress too nice for a job interview. I would suggest a skirt and blouse or better. Definitely not jeans (even a nice pair). You can even go for what you'd wear to meet your grandparents or go to church in. Further tips would be... maybe something nice with your hair. Don't over do perfume or makeup... More

I think that you should wear something simple and casual,yet kind of cool.Maybe some skinny jeans and sneakers with a graphic t-shirt.And you should probably tie up your hair in a pony tail :)
