Hacking the Secret Menu of Jack in the Box
If you check out the PriceListo.com website, you can find the average nationwide prices for the items listed on the Jack in the Box menu. One of the things you might notice is that there sure are plenty of items available. That’s always a good thing.
But if you’ve tried them all and you still want something new, that doesn’t have to mean you need to patronize a different chain restaurant. There’s a secret menu for Jack in the Box, and that means there are still treats to enjoy that aren’t officially listed in the menu.
Here are some of the more popular examples:
The Sourdough Jack is perhaps the best and the most popular among the burgers offered at Jack in the Box. One of its unique features is that instead of the traditional bun, it comes with the sourdough bread. It’s a great bread, as it’s toasty and buttery, and it sure goes well with various burger ingredient combinations.
What this means is that you can always ask for the sourdough bread for any of the other burgers, or even for any of the other sandwiches. So, if you want the sourdough bread for the Sriracha Burger or the BBQ Bacon Double Cheeseburger, go right ahead.
Just keep in mind that this replacement may come at a cost. But even if you have to pay an extra 50 cents, it may well be worth it.
Bringing Back the Bacon Bacon Cheeseburger
The 2-time mention of the Bacon in the name isn’t a mistake. It’s deliberate. That’s because this cheeseburger features a beef patty in which bacon bits are added before it is cooked. Then when they set up the burger, they also add slices of bacon on top of the beef patty. Hence, it’s the Bacon Bacon Cheeseburger.
This was a limited item and it’s no longer available in the menu. The good news is that you can still get it if you ask for it nicely. First ask if they have bacon bits on hand. If so, then ask that they add bacon bits to the patty before they put it on the grill. Then make sure you get slices of bacon on top.
Obviously, this won’t really work if they don’t have bacon bits available. But you can always ask for a double helping of bacon slices on top of the patty instead.
The Super Loaded Breakfast Sandwich
It’s true that if you check out the menu, there’s already a Loaded Breakfast Sandwich listed there. It earns its name with the inclusion of 3 different types of meat: sausage, ham, and bacon. Then the eggs and cheese are added, all with the great sourdough bun. It’s a terrific choice.
But if somehow that’s not enough for you, then you can get the super-loaded version. Just ask more of any ingredient, or ask for a new ingredient added. That particular version is up to you.
The more popular options include:
- Doubling up on any of the ingredients, such as the cheese or any of the meats
- Adding new ingredients, like some sliced turkey into the sandwich
- Adding new veggies, like some rings of onions and tomato slices
- Ordering a side of hash browns, and then asking this to be added to the inside of the sandwich
Do be aware that ordering more ingredients can really increase the calories, fat, and sodium. The basic Loaded Breakfast Sandwich already comes with 707 calories and 47g of fat, and adding more ingredients just increases everything else.
Still, this might work for brunch, if you’re taking a late breakfast. If your breakfast comes in at around 11 AM, then this might count as the lunch as well.
Loading Everything Up
Actually, this option of loading up on the ingredients (whether doubling an ingredient or adding new ones) isn’t limited to the Loaded Breakfast Sandwich. You can do this for just about any sandwich.
So, go ahead and ask for new meat types (like bacon) for your sandwich if you want. Add more cheese, or more veggies. You might have to pay extra, but that’s fair enough.
The Secret Chicken Biscuit
If you check out the menu, then you’ll notice the notable absence of the chicken biscuit sandwich in the breakfast section. But just because it’s not there doesn’t mean you can’t still get it.
All you have to do is to order a plain chicken patty, and a biscuit. Stick the patty into the biscuit, and you’re good to go. Just remember that this patty was meant for a much larger bun, so it sticks out from the biscuit prominently.
Of course, you can really customize this combination as well. Add other toppings, like cheese and onions. Put in your favorite sauce, and enjoy!
