Review: Jack in the Box - Grilled French Toast Plate

Jack in the Box's Grilled French Toast Plate features three slices of French toast, syrup, and hickory-smoked bacon (you can also get the plate with sausage).

The suggested price for the plate is $4.39 but it was $4.59 at my local Jack in the Box.

The French toast slices looked to be made with regular supermarket white bread. It wasn't all that eggy with just a light sweetness to it. There wasn't a pronounced buttery quality or a hint of vanilla or cinnamon to make it more interesting. Even the powdered sugar was sparse.

Texture-wise, the French toast was mostly soft and a little dry. It felt a lot like French toast you might buy frozen from the supermarket.

The bacon didn't fare much better. They didn't drain it very well so there was still a lot of grease on and under the strips. The strips were paper-thin and didn't offer up much in the way of flavor beyond a little smokiness and salt.

Overall, Jack in the Box's Grilled French Toast Plate was pretty disappointing. While edible, it wasn't all that enjoyable. At the same price point, you can get a good deal more food with the Deluxe Breakfast at McDonald's or stop by Denny's and get a thicker, fresher slice of French toast for less than half the price. If it's going to be part of the Brunchfast menu, it might have been better to include some sort of fruit compote rather than syrup. As it stand, it's probably my least favorite Brunchfast menu item (and possibly least favorite Jack in the Box menu item as well).
