Review: Jack in the Box - Smoky Jack

Jack in the Box's Smoky Jack features hickory-smoked bacon, smoky Hickory Grill sauce, smoked cheddar, a grilled beef patty, lettuce, and tomato on an artisan poppy seed bun.

I got one along with fries and drink for $4.99.

The burger was plenty smoky but, interesting, the main driver of the burger's smokiness was actually the sauce, which seemed to have a savory mayo base paired with an intense smokiness and a pop of tanginess.

The cheese was not so smoky but  it was fairly thick, offered a mild cheddar flavor, and was actually cheese as opposed to processed cheese product (which also meant it didn't melt as easily).

The bacon lacked crispiness but was enjoyable enough on the taste front with a decent amount of smokiness.

The lettuce and tomato were pretty fresh and the beef patty was fairly moist.

The bun was soft and dense but resilient with a satisfying egg wash feel to the surface as well as a bit of grainy crunch from the poppy seeds.

Overall, Jack in the Box's Smoky Jack lived up to its name and presented a surprising and pleasant take on a mayo-based sauce. It also offers a tasty and substantial bacon cheeseburger for an affordable price.
