REVIEW: Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger

Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger Whole

Short story: I ordered the Jack in the Box Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger, which has a beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and cheddar ranch sauce on a cheddar cheese bun.

However, I received the more loaded Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger that has everything the smaller burger does but includes hickory-smoked bacon, another beef patty, and another cheddar slice.


So this review will be about the larger one. Thanks for the upgrade, Fast Food Gods…and the person who made my burger!

Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger Bun

Since it sticks out the most, let’s start with that cheddar bun. There’s obviously cheese baked into it, so it looks the part. But when I tried the bun on its own and as part of the sandwich, I couldn’t taste the cheese with most bites. That was also the case with the cheddar slices.

Despite three different cheddar vessels, it’s not a cheesy-tasting cheeseburger. The only times I really got any really noticeable cheesiness was whenever my mouth pulled in a decent glob of the cheddar ranch sauce, which was slathered on both buns.

But most of the time, it was a slightly juicy meat fest in my mouth with those two patties taking center stage and the bacon in the background as a porky hype man coming in every so often. And the lettuce and tomato weren’t any help. They’re just there to add some color to the party and distract you from the sweating cheddar slices.

Jack in the Box Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger Tomatoes

The Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger isn’t loaded with cheddar flavor like this review is loaded with the words “cheddar” and “cheese.” Maybe if I got what I originally ordered, the less loaded Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger, I might’ve tasted an intense cheesiness since there’s one less patty to get in the way.

*Price is for the regular Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger combo, which I ordered. But as I mentioned at the beginning, I received a Bacon Cheddar Loaded Cheeseburger. Also, 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.

  1. Had this today. The bun was actually the best part. The sauce was good but needed to be much more of it. Everything else was bland and flavorless. The cheddar cheese was completely lost here. Maybe remove the lettuce and tomato and replace with onions. MORE SAUCE!

    1. “Maybe remove the lettuce and tomato and replace with onions.” YES! I love raw onions, and tomatoes from fast food restaurants suck ass!!! So terrible and flavorless!!!

  2. This is probably a controversial statement but this is why I rarely bother with cheeseburgers at all. The subpar quality of fast food cheese adds next to nothing, maybe a slight creaminess but certainly very little flavor and it’s not worth the upcharge or the calories. They need to go for like an extra sharp cheddar or something that really brings FLAVOR.

    1. Wow, complete opposite for me there, I won’t eat a fast food burger without cheese as the cheese overs up most of the grosser flavors like their poor quality meat.

      No idea why you don’t taste standard fast food American cheese but it definitely has plenty of flavor.

  3. I had this yesterday and it was ok, but the sauce was pretty bland. Unfortunately, they discontinued the sriracha burger, which was the best thing on the menu, to make room for a bunch of boring chicken sandwiches.
