Jack in the Box Sirloin Burger: Best Fast Food Burger
I don’t eat a lot of fast food. From a foodie’s perspective, I feel it is mostly evil. However, I’m going to have to give Jack in the Box a hat’s off applause for their Sirloin Burger. This thing is scrumptious! The thick burger patty is very well seasoned with lots of black pepper, and pairs perfectly with the American cheese slices. Well seasoned (with something other than just salt) fast food burgers are a rarity, so good job Jack.
The bakery style bun they serve this on is also exceptional. It is very soft, moist, chewy, and good tasting. And though it has sugar in it, it is not so loaded with it that it tastes more like a sweet roll than a hamburger bun, unlike so many other fast food chain buns do. Jack also spreads a peppercorn mayo sauce on each bun, which is just fantastic. My goodness.
I also love the thick pieces of lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickle slices they give you. It gives the allusion that this might actually be healthy for you, but also goes a long way to cut down the salty grease texture in your mouth.
I usually choose to shorten my life span by adding the peppered smoked bacon to it. Boy that makes this burger delicious. I mean come on, peppered bacon with a peppered patty and a peppered mayo? Good Foodie God!
Jack in the Box Seasoned Fries with Sirloin Burger
Now if you’re going to splurge, you damn well better splurge right. So don’t be a pansy ass and skimp on the fat and sodium content here. Order the Seasoned Fries to go with your Sirloin Burger. They are so freaking good I can hardly stand it. Crunchy, moist inside, full of flavor, and a cool orange color I don’t care to understand. The flavor combination of them dipped in ketchup and shoved in your mouth with every Sirloin Burger bite is outstanding. What a happy little piggy it makes.
Jack in the Box Sirloin Burger Meal = Whole lot of Calories
The burger meal with medium seasoned fries and a medium root beer is over 1600 calories, roughly 2900 mg of sodium, and 86 grams of sugar, plus whatever the added bacon packs on. I guess you could go small on the fries and drink to save nearly 250 calories, 350 mg of sodium, and 27 grams of sugar, but what’s the point. You’ve gone this far, just go all the way. You won’t need another meal for the rest of the day, so enjoy (in fact, this could be your entire daily allotment of calories). Of course, you may want to limit your frequency intake of this gluttonous treat due to potential health risks, but when you do allow yourself to enjoy it, freaking go for it! Yummy yum yum yum yum.
