diaphoresis: karmachameleon: You JITB haters are crazy.  The Ultimate Cheeseburger (and its big brother the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger) is quite simply the best thing on any fast food menu anywhere.  Period, end of story, and I'll hear no more about it.

This article was painful to read.  A dude who doesn't like bacon (WTF?), and a wife who compares McDonald's favorably over Jack In The Box.  Jesus help us.

So, you're saying your biased, right?


Yes.  However, I tried the Bacon Insider, and...the Ultimate Cheeseburger remains the king.

Ultimate.  Cheeseburger.

Vimes carefully lifted the top of the bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich and smiled inwardly. Good old Cheery. She knew what a Vimes BLT was all about. It was about having to lift up quite a lot of crispy bacon before you found the miserable skulking vegetables. You might never notice them at all. ...
... "I'm sure you intend to, Sam, but you look like a horrible warning," said Sybil. "When did you last eat?"
"I had a lettuce, tomato, and bacon sandwich, dear," he said, endeavouring by tone of voice to suggest that the bacon had been a mere condiment rather than a slab barely covered by the bread.

As sick as I am of the whole Bacon thing, I'm actually surprised none of the chains has tried this before.

The Sourdough Jack is usually damn tasty--I've turned on several people to this tasty sammich.
Mystery meat tacos can't be beat, either. Two tacos, a thing of churros, and a bottle of water = a

I saw this "bacon wave" on tv. immediately I thought, "amazing! if it works crispy bacon in minutes! and all of the stinkin' grease transferred to the inside surfaces of your microwave!"

Raktastic: Enigmamf: Znuh: Old enough to remember when they all got closed down on Long Island / East Coast thanks to botulism / food poisoning.

It was E. Coli, not botulism.

Not just East Coast, Illinois and the surrounding states no longer have them either due to that outbreak. Loved their crunchy taco's. Didn't miss them since Burger King had them for a while. Now they are gone so I need to go to the West/Gulf Coast for my crunchy taco fix.

On a lighter note, Hardee's (Carl's Jr.) is coming back to the chicagoland area. Granted it's 3, but still.


Missouri and Illinois aren't Illinois and the surrounding states?   You sure about that?

There are Jack in the Boxes in both places...

Got a lot of Jack in the Boxes in St. Louis. Not boasting. Just saying.

CSB
We were having lunch at the JIB near the airport. You could hear the people ordering at the drive thru. A woman yells her order: One Whopper, Onion Rings and a Diet Cola. The cashier repeats the order as "One Jumbo Jack, Onion Rings and Diet cola" and the driver pulls around, gets their order and takes off.

About five minutes later, she's back arguing her tomatoes on her Whopper were bad. Indeed, it was a bad time if you were a tomato; drought and squeezy tomato pickers. They made her another Jumbo Jack with acceptable tomatoes. She said she had to come back and she 'needed compensation.' The best they could offer was another soda and she had to discuss this compensation offer with her passenger. She went out and discussed it for a few minutes. She came back in and demanded a large soda since she was in a hurry to get to the doctors and was now late. She got it and as she stormed out, she yells "I'm going somewhere else for my Whopper sandwiches!"

I knew someone would catch that. The closest location to the North Midwest is Indianapolis, so yes the surrounding states comment was overstating the area, when I should have said Upper Midwest.

In far far southeast Houston/Harris County, we have a burger place called Tookie's.. They have had a burger called a "squeeler"... bacon in the burger... Have had it lots of times, super yummy.. no urge to try Jack in the Box's.

I worked at one in high school, people drove from Chicago and would order 300 tacos.  Those things are barely edible 20 minutes after they are made, how they cart them 5 hours I have no idea.

JonZoidberg: I grew up in Houston but live in Shreveport, so no JitB here.  Apparently they all went out of business 20+ years ago from the E. coli scare and never came back.  When we stop at one, I go for my old standby, the Sourdough Jack.  I go there once or twice a year so I'm not in a mood to try new stuff.

My local target for greasy belly bombs is Checkers.  It's worth braving the bad side of town.


here in dfw we have many great places to eat...a super wide variety...yet, the one thing sorely lacking for a fast cheap burger fix is CHECKERS/RALLEYS

oh dear lord they don't know how much business they'd get...i alone could keep their lights on and their griddles frying for a few days. i live far north of fort worth...in a spot near haslet, on the way to decatur, where growth just hasn't really happened yet...it's coming SOON...a walmart just opened down the street, with a huge area of land on which development is about to happen...if only we could get a checkers up this way!

THIS. We are sadly lacking in a Jack in the Box or a Roy Roger's restaurant. The closest Roy's is about 45 miles north (in Alexandria). There are 6 in Virginia. I don't know if we have any JITB.

Those brutes are awesome, no doubt about it. Although they were much...easier...to eat and recover from when I was younger. But still good. Their ciabatta burger was my favorite, though. Bummed they got rid of that. The new bacon inside thing is okay, not the greatest but okay.
When I was a kid Jack in the Box had a 'hot ham and cheese' sandwich. My memories might be clouded, but those were the best things ever. Ever.

OnlyM3: Jack-in-the-box is dead to me until they return to the old "Ultimate Cheeseburger".


That's a curious statement......what was the difference?

rocky_howard: TuteTibiImperes: It looks better than the Wendy's baconator, at least this one has some vegetables on it.  A burger without some vegetables for contrast is a sad burger.

This.  I've never understood the love for the Baconator. It's a very pedestrian burger. Just bun, cheese, patty and bacon. WTF. A burger should be a parade of ingredients, not a glorified hot dog.

It's super dry and chalky and I feel gross just by eating it. Most overrated fast food item ever. All just due to the internet ridiculous obsession with bacon. I mean, I love bacon as much as the next guy, but this "bacon with everything" fellas are silly poseurs. When I buy one of Wendy's regular burgers I always go for the Big Bacon Classic. Has bun, cheese, patty, bacon and then an sizable array of veggies to make it more delicious.

Wendy's redeemed themselves with their new ciabatta bacon burger though, it's one of the best fast food burgers I've tried.

They're doing some seasonal burgers here, like they change them every 2 or 3 months. There was a pretzel bacon burger hat was to die for.

[i.imgur.com image 555x476]


Yeah, that was a good one. Ordering the smaller Baconater with the ciabatta bun is a win, too. Just make sure you're either going to burn that thing off or unload it out soon after. Wendys burgers are tasty, but they don't seem to stay around very long.

I like their honey butter chicken biscuit for breakfast, but I don't really care for their fries, so I don't eat lunch or dinner there much.

I hate fast food in general, but I could go for a bacon cheese and jalapeno whataburger right now...

/Popeyes is also acceptable.

I like Whataburger fries when they are right out of the fryer... they sit too long, super gross...
the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is the best thing ever...

I like their hamburgers, but love the chicken strip sandwich thing they have...
I try very hard not to eat fast food, but damn I can never pass up a Whataburger...

what i think when i read your statement: "i don't usually eat fast food, but when i do, i overindulge!"

nttawwt, mind you...and boy howdy do i loves me some w-a-b and popeyes!

I tried the bacon inside burger last week. I thought it was pretty terrible.  Except for the bun which was actually good for a fast food bun.
But it just tasted off.  I mean a normal McDonalds cheeseburger is bad, but it's sort of neutral bad.  It's relatively inoffensive.  This one had flavors in it, I wouldn't call it bacon at all, but they weren't necessarily appealing flavors. I've been to Jack in the Box twice now in the last year or so, and I wasted this last trip on that "burger."

Good point, if I were to get my first Whataburger in a few years right now I would make it a double.

"JT: Too saucy. Generally, if you're overly saucing stuff - except for ribs! - you are hiding the fact that the meat kind of sucks, you know. Except for ribs - God bless ribs! Saucing all over it."

No. No sauce. Dry rub. Memphis style.

She lost me right there. Still wanna try this though. Closest Jack in the Box is a few hours away, though.

If your meats cooked well and tastes good, you do not need sauce. Same goes for steaks. If you do sauce it, don't over do it. Sauce should compliment, not overpower.

I liked the smoky taste of the meat.  The slight saltiness made it even better with the actual bacon on it.  Yes, the baconnaise is subtle but still there.  The bun really does hold up against the veggies, bacon, meat, and bacon.  I'd eat it again, maybe even if it was on a pretzel bun.
 
2014-02-21 03:57:44 PM

meat0918: I liked it.

It wasn't dry like the usual jack in the box burger.  The burger was smokier than usual, almost like they'd grilled it on charcoal.


The Jack in the Box 1/4 pound patty was one of the best until the early 90's. I was working there while in college back then. We used to cook the patties on the grill for 5 minutes. If there was a rush, the patties would be cooked under presses, which squeezed them and reduced the cooking time to 2 minutes. Customers who knew this would come in and order their burgers with unpressed patties, because the pressed ones were like cardboard.

After the E. Coli deaths, they went to cooking all the patties with the presses. There was no exception allowed, even for customers who insisted. At that point, the burgers became dry. If you never had an ultimate cheeseburger back in the day, you have no idea what you missed.

mid to late 90s they weren't cooking everything under the presses and only used them for rushes or late at night if the people didn't want to wait.
