Jack in the Box Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger
How about a scrumptious hamburger for lunch? Jack in the Box has many hamburgers on their regular menu, but none like the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger. Throughout the years this hamburger has been on the regular menu as a ‘limited time’ item. This hamburger comes with 2 beef patties, red onions, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and bacon. Come hungry this baby is big!!
Junior Onion Bacon with BBQ
If you are just looking for a snack or some to hold you over until dinner time, then you need to try to order a Junior Onion Bacon with BBQ. For some though, this may be a lot more than a snack. The word ‘junior’ fools you. You think of a smaller hamburger, right? This burger has 2 beef patties, bacon, cheese, onion rings, and bbq sauce (in place of the mayonnaise and ketchup).
Jack in the Box “Loaded” French Fries
You could also attempt to order some loaded french fries. These were inspired by the Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges. Just ask them to use curly fries instead of the potato wedges. Your toppings will include; cheese sauce, shredded cheese, and a lot of bacon bits. This is the perfect side dish to accompany one of the hamburgers listed above.
Jack in the Box Mint Oreo Cookie Shake
If you are craving chocolate and mint for dessert, then why not hit a Jack in the Box instead of the convenience store? You can ask them to make you a Mint Oreo Cookie Shake. This would be perfect for those 90 degrees summer days. With mint ice cream normally being a seasonal item, you may be out of luck. But it is worth a shot.
