For a long time, the Jack In The Box Sourdough Jack was the fast food holy grail for me. Since they’re mostly located on the west coast, I’ve eaten there only while on vacation in Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
There was one time when I was in Dallas and saw a Jack In The Box while being shuttled to our hotel via buses hired by the company I worked for at the time. We were not allowed to leave the hotel due to insurance issues. On the morning we were going to be shuttled back to the airport I, along with a couple other guys paid a taxi to take us to the Jack In The Box drive-thru at 5:30 a.m. to get some Sourdough Jacks.
What is a Sourdough Jack? It’s a 1/4 pound patty with 2 slices of Swiss Cheese, Tomatoes, Bacon, their Onion-Mayo sauce on toasted Sourdough Bread. I may have tried some of their other items years ago but this particular item is my only reason for going to Jack in the Box. Last year, right after arrived in Las Vegas and picked up my car rental I went straight to a Jack in the Box and bought a Sourdough Jack to feed my addiction. Will my Sourdough Sickness ever end? Probably not.
