Jack in the Box Bacon Ranch Monster Taco

Purchased Price: $1.99*
Size: N/A
Purchased at: Jack in the Box
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Contains the longest fast food bacon slice I’ve ever seen. Buttermilk ranch sauce goes surprisingly well with the seasoned ground beef. Parts of the taco shell that aren’t soaked in grease are crispy. Shell does a good job of preventing the lettuce from falling out. I’d probably buy it again drunk or sober.
Cons: The flavor of the bacon gets lost behind the seasoned beef. The obligatory Jack in the Box taco grease patch. Could’ve used a bit more buttermilk ranch sauce. Bacon isn’t crispy; its texture is more like bacon that has been sitting for a while at a Courtyard by Marriott hot breakfast buffet. Lots of pale lettuce. It might be a Monster Taco, but eating just one isn’t filling.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, things are a bit pricier here. You’ll probably pay less than I did.

    thanks for the review, I figured the bacon would lose it’s crunchy (did you eat it there, or travel some?)
    hard to beat the original, if you’re in the mood for that kind of taco

    I’d have went for the nacho cheese one. Bacon does not belong on a jitb taco
