  1. If this burger falls somewhere in between a giant burger and a junior burger with two patties than wouldn’t it just be a Bacon Double Cheeseburger???

  2. And this is why 2/3 of our country are overweight or obese. This “meal” is a disgusting display of gluttony and excess.

    1. No, no it isn’t. It’s two 1/8th lb patties and only 540 calories. A Dave’s Single is 570 calories. You could argue that the Baconator at 950 or the Dave’s Triple at 1090 are excessive, but a disgusting display is a douchebag value judgment and you clearly are one.

    2. I certainly agree. The burger alone is 540 calories. Forget the meal that includes a drink , five piece nugget and fries. It’s corporate advertising that preys upon the young and those who have no knowledge of nutrition and lastly they price it within reason.

  3. The two above commenters are a couple of Nazi a-holes. This is America, if you can make something that people want it’s their free will to buy or pass.

  4. They’re trying to get us sick by making this a good deal for your buck. In the long run you will have to pay for treatments and surgeries. The government wants us to get sick so they can profit from it. Why can’t they come out with something healthy for $5!

  5. Only in America will you find psychos that complain about TOO MUCH food. If only everyone were so lucky. These SJW types would be slightly more respected If they bought some of these giant JBCs for people who are starving and helped everyone out. Instead they just try to ban them for everyone in the name of “public health”

    Really, that’s just an argument against socialized medicine, if anything.

    As far as this sandwich goes, I had two ago far and their excellent. It’s not just an extra patty, there’s extra bacon too to balance it out. Real winner with this one.
    I love it.

  6. The burger alone is 540 calories. Read the ingredients and calculate the health consequences, people… It’s the fattening of America, times 10 now.

  7. I frequently get 2 of the regular JBC, with the giant one I get the same amount of burger, bacon and cheese but only half of the bread πŸ™‚ and only half of the mayo :-). Sadly I only get half of the tomatoes πŸ™ I choose to throw away about half of the fries because I’m full. If I buy just the meal ala carte without the fries it is $5.46 + tax. So I save money by buying the meal for $5.00 + tax even if I choose to not eat any or all of the fries. I like this sandwich!
