Everything You Need To Know About Jack In The Box's Loaded Burgers

Jack in the Box is a restaurant that touts its burgers as the best item, but many believe it is better known for its 2-for-99-cents tacos, which have a recipe that hasn't changed in 50 years, according to Mental Floss. And over the years, it has released news about both. Fans of the tacos rejoiced when they announced a new variation, the spicy tiny taco. In the past year, it also announced the combo with the BBQ Bacon Double Cheeseburger.

Some of the other fan favorite burgers include the Sourdough Jack, a beef patty sandwiched between two thick sourdough slices, cheese and other toppings, and the Jumbo Jack, an average but satisfying burger topped with pickles, tomato slices, diced onions, lettuce, mayo, and ketchup (via Jack in the Box). But the new burger stands above all other burger options, and for cheese-lovers especially, may just top them all. And even better, it's two announcements in one!

Two new burgers chock-full of the dairy delight

Cheese fans rejoice, Jack in the Box just announced two new burgers chock-full of the dairy delight. The Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger and Bacon Cheddar Loaded Double Cheeseburger are now on menus and available to order on their own or as a combo, and they are not as unhealthy calorically as you might think. Per Chew Boom, the Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger has a patty covered in "cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and cheddar ranch sauce, on a cheddar cheese bun" and the Bacon Cheddar Loaded Double Cheeseburger is the same, but with the addition of an extra patty and hickory-smoked bacon.

Melz and Chris described the Bacon Cheddar Loaded Double Cheeseburger on their YouTube show as very different and cheddar forward, but noted it could use a better sauce. And RDR Food Reviews likewise commented about it on YouTube and calling out the standout cheddar cheese flavor, which he calls nice and smooth. The former clocks in at 550 calories and 37 grams of fat, but also holds 27 grams of protein, so all in all, not the worst fast-food burger. The latter is as high as 910 calories with 37 grams of fat and 56 grams of protein. But if you're ordering these, it is likely you're trying to treat yourself and ignore those facts anyway, as you should be.
