News: Jack in the Box - New Sourdough Cheesesteak Melt

Jack's latest and greatest, the new Sourdough Cheesesteak Melt, lands on the Jack in the Box menu today.

Back by a promotional campaign with mullets (is that a Philly thing?! I don't think Philly when I think mullet...), the sandwich features sliced steak, grilled onions, fire-roasted red and green peppers, melted cheese, and mayo-onion sauce on sourdough bread.

Other sourdough sandwiches on the menu at Jack in the Box include the trademark Sourdough Jack and the Sourdough Steak Melt.

Check out the commercial featuring Jack's Philly cousin:

The Sourdough Cheesesteak Melt is not available in Las Vegas, Austin, or Cincinnati.

  1. If Jack ever sends its clown to our backwards culturally-deprived semi-isolated part of fly-over country I will rush over and shout my order for two... two... two for a buck tacos.

    Maybe 3 orders for a liver quiverin' 6 tacos.

    After that I would consider the Sourdough Cheesesteak Melt dependent upon the price of said goody.

  2. Stick with the tacos... this will probably be at least $4. I love JITB, but I can't imagine this will be worth the money.

  3. Tried it the other day, not bad, the cheese was perfectly melted mixed into a delicious goo with whatever sauce they used and the sourdough wasn't bad, slightly crispy but not particularly flavorful. The peppers and onions were cooked just about right however, there wasn't nearly enough of them or the meat (which was tender if slightly bland).

  4. This was terrible. The cheese was gooey, yes, but the flavors didn't gel well together. The sourdough gave it an odd taste(and I like sourdough). The meat was bland and was probably frozen in chunks, then thawed and warmed before entering the sandwich. There was definitely no flat-top grilling to it, but I should've known that. Anytime a fast-food joint trys to do a cheesesteak, it usually sux. This was the worst "cheesesteak" I've ever had. You'd be better off eating a shoe.
