Jack in the Box: First Burger I Tried in America

Burgers are a staple in American cuisine. So when I arrived in America, I knew that it would only be a matter of time when I would have my first burger in the US. Of course, I have tried burgers from American stores with a presence in the Philippines such as Burger King, McDonald's, and Wendy's.

Jack in the Box

My first taste of burger in America was from a Jack in the Box located within a Chevron gas station very close to my new home in Stockton, California, U.S.A. We ordered the Sourdough Jack sandwich, a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger, a Bacon and Cheese Buttery Jack Sandwich, and an Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Sourdough Jack 

Sourdough Jack is beef burger patty, bacon, cheese, ketchup, and mayonnaise on lightly toasted sourdough bread.

Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger 

3 slices of bacon, 2 beef patties, 2 kinds of cheese, mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup all in one burger sandwich. Sounds good? That is Jack in the Box's Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Bacon and Cheese Buttery Jack 

We had a choice of the Classic Buttery Jack and Bacon and Cheese Buttery Jack. You bet, it's the bacon that made the choice easier. This one's got a bigger patty than the other sandwiches we ordered. And a weird looking bun as well.

Ultimate Cheeseburger

2 beef burger patties, 2 kinds of cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. Pretty standard for  a cheeseburger.

Personal Verdict

Presentation. 7/10. They all look messy compared to what you see on the menu photo. Oh well, that's usually common in any restaurant.

Taste. 7.5/10. The sandwiches from Burger King in the Philippines definitely taste better. My siblings primed me to lower my expectation before I took my first bite. Turns out, it was better than they suggested.

Would I Come Back? Yes! Largely because this is the burger joint closest to home. And, it ain't bad really. Plus they have the buy one, get one promo on their Jumbo Jacks and Supreme Croissants in exchange for customer feedback.
