       Foodmaker, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Foodmaker" or the "Company"),
is hereby offering (the "Offering") for sale 1,584,573 shares of its common
stock, par value $.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), reserved for issuance
upon the exercise of the Company's outstanding warrants issued (i) to the
public under the Warrant Agreement dated as of December 8, 1988 by and among
PDV Holding, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("PDV"), Foodmaker, The Fulcrum III
Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership ("Fulcrum III"), and State
Street Bank and Trust Company, as warrant agent (the "Public Warrants") and

Agreement dated as of December 8, 1988 by and among PDV, Foodmaker, Fulcrum III
and Drexel (the "Drexel Warrants" and, together with the Public Warrants, the
"Warrants").

       The exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable
upon the exercise of the Public Warrants set forth on the face of such warrants
were adjusted as a result of the Merger (the "Merger") of PDV with and into the
Company on March 10, 1992 in accordance with the terms of the agreement
governing the Public Warrants.  See "The Company--History."  Of the 228,191
Public Warrants that were originally issued, 135,177 had been exercised as of
April 22, 1994.  Each of the outstanding Public Warrants currently entitles
its registered holder to purchase 3 shares of Common Stock for $.926667 per
share, subject to further adjustment under certain circumstances.  The Public
Warrants expire on November 30, 1998.

       The exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable
upon the exercise of the Drexel Warrants set forth on the face of such warrants
were adjusted as a result of the Merger in accordance with the terms of the
agreement governing the Drexel Warrants.  See "The Company--History."  Each of
the Drexel Warrants  entitled its registered holder to purchase 1.5 shares of
Common Stock for $.926667 per share.  All of the Drexel Warrants had been
exercised before their expiration on November 2, 1993.

       The Company's Common Stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange
under the symbol "FM."

                                  THE COMPANY

     The Company owns, operates and franchises Jack In The Box, a chain of
fast food restaurants located principally in the western and southwestern
United States.  In addition, the Company owns an approximate 40% equity
interest in Family Restaurants, Inc. ("FRI"), the operator of approximately
350 family restaurants located primarily in California and parts of the
Southwest under the Carrows and Coco's formats, and approximately 315 Mexican
restaurants nationwide operated under the Chi-Chi's, El Torito and Casa
Gallardo names.  The Company's principal executive offices are located at
9330 Balboa Avenue, San Diego, California 92123; telephone number
(619)571-2121. 

     History.  The Company was incorporated in Delaware in 1971.  The Company
is the successor to a business that was formed more than 40 years ago when
the first Jack In The Box opened in 1950.  In April 1988, the Company
acquired Chi-Chi's, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Chi-Chi's"), a chain of
full-service, casual Mexican restaurants located primarily in the midwestern
and midatlantic United States, which opened its first restaurants in 1978. 
In December 1988, all outstanding shares of the Company were acquired (the
"Acquisition") by a holding company organized at the direction of Gibbons,
Green, van Amerongen ("Gibbons Green"), predecessor to Gibbons, Goodwin, van
Amerongen ("GGvA").  This holding company was merged with and into the
Company in March 1992 as part of a recapitalization plan that included the
retiring of a portion of the Company's then existing debt with the net
proceeds from the sale of Common Stock and new debt securities of the Company
to the public. As a result of the merger, the exercise price and the number
of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants were
adjusted in accordance with the terms of the agreements governing the
Warrants (the "Warrant Agreements").  In January 1994, the Company
contributed its entire Chi-Chi's Mexican restaurant chain to FRI in exchange
for a 40% equity interest in FRI, a five-year warrant to acquire 111,000
additional shares of FRI at $240 per share, which would increase its equity
interest to 46%, and approximately $173 million in cash. 

                       CERTAIN INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS

     Purchasers of the Common Stock offered hereby should consider the
specific factors set forth below as well as the other information set forth
in this Prospectus.

Leverage and Restrictions Imposed by Lenders
- --------------------------------------------

     The Company is highly leveraged.  At January 23, 1994, on a pro forma
basis after giving effect to the sale of Chi-Chi's, the Company had total
indebtedness of approximately $471.2 million and a ratio of consolidated debt
to stockholders' equity of approximately 3.5 to 1. 

     The Company's credit facilities impose significant operating and
financial restrictions on the Company.  Such restrictions affect, and in many
respects significantly limit or prohibit, among other things, the ability of
the Company to incur additional indebtedness, pay dividends, issue preferred
stock of subsidiaries, repay indebtedness prior to its stated maturity,
create liens, sell assets or engage in mergers or acquisitions, make certain
capital expenditures and make investments in unrestricted subsidiaries.  A
failure by the Company to comply with these restrictions could lead to a
default under the terms of one or more of its credit facilities.  In the
event of such default, the holders of such indebtedness could elect to
declare all of the funds borrowed pursuant thereto to be due and payable
together with accrued and unpaid interest.  These restrictions could limit
the ability of the Company to effect future financing or otherwise may
restrict corporate activities. 

     The substantial indebtedness of the Company may limit the Company's
ability to respond to changing business and economic conditions, insofar as
they may affect the financial condition and financing requirements of the
Company.  The Company believes, however, that, based on current levels of
operations and anticipated growth, its cash flow from operations, together
with its other available sources of liquidity, will be adequate to make
required payments of principal and interest on its debt, to permit
anticipated capital expenditures and to fund working capital requirements. 
If the Company is unable to generate sufficient cash flow from operations in
the future, it may be required to refinance all or a portion of its existing
debt or to obtain additional financing.  There can be no assurance that any
such refinancing would be possible or that any additional financing could be
obtained on terms that are favorable or acceptable to the Company. 
                                       3


Control by Principal Stockholders
- ---------------------------------

     At April 1, 1994, approximately 45.4% and 6.8%, respectively, of the
outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company was held by (i) two
investment partnerships of which GGvA is the general partner, The Fulcrum III
Limited Partnership and The Second Fulcrum III Limited Partnership
(collectively, "Fulcrum III"), and (ii) certain key managers of the Company
(the "Management Investors").  Consequently, Fulcrum III may have sufficient
voting power, voting in conjunction with the Management Investors, to elect
the entire Board of Directors of the Company and, in general, to determine
(without the consent of the Company's other stockholders) the outcome of any
corporate transaction or other matter submitted to the stockholders for
approval, including any merger, consolidation, sale of all or substantially
all of the Company's assets or "going private" transaction, and to prevent or
cause a change in control of the Company.  GGvA renders consulting and
financial services to the Company for which it receives annual consulting
fees.   

Competition
- -----------

     The restaurant industry is highly competitive with respect to price,
service, location and food quality, and there are many well-established
competitors.  Moreover, the restaurant business is often affected by changes
in consumer tastes, local, regional and national economic conditions,
demographic trends and traffic patterns.  In addition, factors such as
increases in food, labor and benefits costs and decreases in the availability
of experienced management and hourly employees may adversely affect the
restaurant industry in general and the Company's restaurants in particular. 
Any changes in these factors could adversely affect  the profitability of the
Company. 

Potential Conflicts Related To Dual Role
- ----------------------------------------

     Jack Goodall, the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of the
Company, is also expected to spend approximately 50% of his time as Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of FRI, for which services FRI has agreed to
reimburse Foodmaker for 50% of Mr. Goodall's salary, benefits and expenses. 
Because Mr. Goodall serves as the most senior officer of both Foodmaker and
FRI, Mr. Goodall may be required to limit his involvement in those areas, if
any, where the interests of the Company conflict with those of FRI.  The
Company does not be- lieve that Mr. Goodall's simultaneous service as an
officer of both the Company and FRI will have a material adverse effect on
Mr. Goodall's ability to manage the business and operations of the Company. 
In addition, a committee of independent members of the Company's Board of
Directors, initially consisting of Messrs. Gibbons, Alpert, Carter and Payne,
has been formed to report to the full Board of Directors concerning any
conflict of interest matters that may arise as a result of the relationship
of the Company's officers or employees with the FRI organization.             
  
               Leonard I. Green, a director of Foodmaker, and Christopher V.
Walker, a director of Foodmaker, are general partners of Leonard Green &
Partners, L.P., the general partner of Green Equity Investors, L.P. ("GEI"),
which owns an 18.4% equity interest in FRI.  Mr. Goodall indirectly owns an
approximately 0.5% limited partnership interest in GEI.  Apol- lo Advisors,
L.P. ("Apollo"), GEI and Foodmaker control FRI pursuant to the terms of a
shareholders agreement entered into in connection with the acquisition of
FRI.

     The purchase price paid by FRI for Chi-Chi's was determined as a result
of arm's-length negotiations between representatives of Apollo, with input
from representatives of GEI, and representatives of the Company.  Messrs.
Goodall, Green and Walker did not participate in the portions of meetings of
the Company's Board of Directors during which the other directors discussed
the acceptability of proposals related to, and they abstained from voting on,
the FRI transaction.

     As part of the acquisition of FRI, Apollo and GEI received an aggregate
of $7.0 million from FRI as a financial advisory fee for services provided in
connection with the acquisition and related transactions.  FRI has also
agreed to pay Apollo and GEI annual fees of $1.2 million, in the aggregate,
for providing post-acquisition management consulting and financial planning
services.

     Chi-Chi's purchases various food and other products for use or sale by
its restaurants pursuant to a distribution agreement with Foodmaker.  The
Company believes that the agreement contains terms no less favorable to
Foodmaker than an agreement with an unaffiliated third party.
                                       4


                                USE OF PROCEEDS

     The approximate net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Common
Stock being offered hereby, assuming all of the Warrants are exercised, is
estimated to be $1,414,371.  The Company has no current specific plans for
the proceeds.   This Offering is being undertaken to satisfy the Company's
obligation to the holders of the Warrants to register the Common Stock
issuable upon exercise of the Warrants; this Offering is not being made to
raise funds.  The proceeds have been and the Company anticipates the
remaining proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.  However, the
Company's Board of Directors may determine that the proceeds may be used for
some other purpose if, in its sole discretion, the Board determines such use
will be in the Company's best interest. 

                        DETERMINATION OF OFFERING PRICE

     The offering price of $.926667 per share of Common Stock upon the
exercise of the Warrants is the price at which the registered holders of the
Warrants are entitled to purchase shares of the Company's Common Stock under
the terms of the Warrant Agreements.  

                             PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

     The 1,584,573 shares of Common Stock being offered hereby, of which
1,305,531 had been issued as of April 22, 1994, will be issued by or on
behalf of the Company directly to, or pursuant to appropriate instruction
from, the registered holders of the Warrants upon the exercise of the
Warrants by such holders.

     As adjusted for the Merger, each of the 228,191 Public Warrants issued,
of which 135,177 had been exercised as of April 22, 1994, entitles its
registered holder to purchase 3 shares of Common Stock for $.926667 per
share, subject to further adjustment under certain circumstances.  The Public
Warrants may be exercised upon surrender, in person or by mail, to the
Company at State Street Bank and Trust Company c/o Boston Financial Data
Services, 2 Heritage Drive, 4th Floor, North Quincy, Massachusetts 02171,

Item 15.  Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

      Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law makes provision
for the indemnification of officers and directors in terms sufficiently broad
to indemnify officers and directors of the Company under certain circumstances
from liabilities (including reimbursement for expenses incurred) arising under
the Securities Act of 1933.  The Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of the
Company provide for indemnification of officers and directors against costs and
expenses incurred in connection with any action or suit to which such person
is a party to the full extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation
Law.

Item 17.  Undertakings.

      The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

      (1)   To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made,
a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement;

         (i)    To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the
      Securities Act of 1933;

         (ii)   To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after
      the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most recent
      post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate,
      represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the
      Registration Statement; and

         (iii)  To include any material information with respect to the plan of
      distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or
      any material change to such information in the Registration Statement;

         Provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not
      apply if the Registration Statement is on Form S-3 and the information
      required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs
      is contained in periodic reports filed by the Registrant pursuant to
      Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are
      incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement.

      (2)  That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the
Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to
be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and
the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial
bona fide offering thereof.

      (3)  To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment
any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination
of the offering.

      The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of
determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the
Registrant's annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the
Securities Act of 1934 that is incorporated by reference in this Registration
Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the
securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time
shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

      lnsofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities
Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of
the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the
Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange
Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the
Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.  In the event that a claim for
indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the
Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling
person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or
proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the offering of the securities being registered, the
Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been
settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction
the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as
expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such
issue.

                                     II-2


                                   SIGNATURES

         Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1993, the
Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all
of the requirements for filing a Form S-3 and has duly caused this Post-
Effective Amendment No. 3 to the Registration Statement to be signed on its
behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of San Diego,
State of California, on the 22nd of April, 1994.
