Jack in the Box has been one of America’s favorite burger places for over seventy years, and there is no doubt about why. Their burgers and fries remain some of the tastiest around, and their mascot, Jack Box, is easily one of the most iconic fast food mascots.
Given that their slogan is “think outside the box”, Jack in the Box has generally loved seeing the secret menu items its fans have come up with and have shared many such items themselves on their social media accounts. While the following items may not be on any of their official menus, most Jack in the Box staff members will be more than happy to create them for you, as long as you know what to ask for.
Can’t get enough bacon on your burger? Try this meaty delight the next time you stop at Jack in the Box, which is so good it made it onto the official menu for a while.
To order this, request a bacon cheeseburger and ask for bacon bits to be added on top of the patty to enjoy an extra tasty meal. Keep in mind not all locations carry bacon bits readily available.
There are few flavor combinations out there that are as good as mint and chocolate, and with this hack you can finish your meal with an extra delicious dessert that combines those two perfectly!
To get this, Just ask for an Oreo Cookie Shake with the vanilla ice cream swapped out for mint ice cream (where available), and enjoy your frosty treat.
Another dessert that you won’t find on the menu but is more than tasty enough to deserve a spot up there, is the Maple Bacon Cheesecake.
To give this delectable treat a try, order a slice of New York Style Cheesecake and ask for sides of both maple syrup and bacon bits. Sprinkle both of those on top of your cheesecake and you have one delicious slice of cake.
Jack in the Box is known for their delicious breakfast burritos, but what if you’re in the mood for a breakfast taco instead? If a taco is what you crave, simply order your preferred breakfast burrito and ask for it to be served in a taco shell instead of a tortilla to enjoy a classic breakfast meal with a twist.
Need more for a side dish than plain fries? Look no further than the Loaded Curly Fries hack! Not only is it super simple, it’s also super delicious. Just order a side of Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges with the wedges swapped out for curly fries and enjoy one of the best sides of fries you’ll ever have.
Love the sourdough buns used in the Sourdough Jack, but prefer toppings other than tomatoes and swiss cheese? Lucky for you, you can swap out the buns on any burger for the sourdough buns for only $0.29. That’s a small price to pay to enjoy a better burger customized just the way you like it.
This burger is so good it used to be on the full menu, but it lives on in everyone who got the chance to try it. To elevate your bun game, order a bacon cheeseburger and ask for a ciabatta bun to be swapped in for the regular hamburger bun. As long as they have ciabatta buns in stock, it’s an easy substitution that has a huge impact on your burger.
This is a secret menu item so good that Jack in the Box even posted about it themselves! To finish your meal off right, order both the New York Style Cheesecake and the mini churros for dessert, and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar from the churros over top of the cheesecake for an extra sweet and delicious slice of cake.
If you are looking for a heartier version of a chicken sandwich, try this customization the next time you are in the mood for some crispy chicken.
When you go to order a chicken sandwich, ask them to swap the bun for one of the biscuits they use for breakfast sandwiches, and enjoy the resulting taste of Southern-style comfort.
Much like the Churro Cheesecake, this is such a good hack Jack in the Box just had to share it with the world.
To start the day off right, order both mini pancakes and mini churros, spread the churros on top of the pancakes along with the maple syrup, and you have an extra sweet way to begin your day.
For the carb-conscious among us, ordering your burger Protein Style is a great way to still enjoy a tasty fast food meal without sacrificing your preferences.
To get a Protein Style burger, just switch the buns out for lettuce, so you can still grab hold of the burger without too much of a mess and enjoy every bite just the way you want it.
Jack in the Box may have stopped offering their BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers, but there’s no reason that should stop you from enjoying one.
To make one yourself, order a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger with the ketchup and mayo swapped out for BBQ sauce with a side of onion rings. Put a few of those onion rings on top of the patty and you’ve got yourself a delicious BBQ burger.
Onion rings have become an increasingly popular topping for burgers at fast food restaurants, but they’re not the only circular fried food that can make a good burger even better. To give this a try, order a side of curly fries with your preferred burger or chicken sandwich, and then place a few on top to enjoy more crunch and more flavor.
One bold take on this hack is to order a Double Jack burger, and then place a layer of curly fries between the two patties, simulating the discontinued Bonus Jack but with curly fries replacing the middle bun (which many would argue is an improvement).
Jack in the Box’s Loaded Breakfast Sandwich, a sourdough bun filled with bacon, ham, sausage, eggs, and cheese, makes for a hearty start to any day. However, some morning you just need a little more to fill up and get ready for the day ahead, and that’s when you need to order an Extra Loaded Breakfast Sandwich.
To give this hack a try, ask for the sandwich to be made with double meat, or ask for additional toppings like turkey slices or tomato slices. To really kick it up a notch, you can also order a hashbrown and slide that into your sandwich as well.
While Jack in the Box has delicious fries and onion rings, sometimes you need something a bit more spicy to go along with your burger. Their Stuffed Jalapenos are a great option all by themselves, but if you’re looking for something a little more special, ask for some of the cheese sauce and taco sauce from their tacos to be spread on top of them for a tasty side dish.
Mini Pancake Sliders
Make your own mini sandwiches any time of the day by asking for an order of the mini pancakes. Then choose you filling: chicken nuggets or popcorn chicken, hash browns, or jalapeno poppers. Use two mini pancakes to sandwich them around your choice of filling to create your own sliders.
Order two tacos and a side of onion rings, and ask for BBQ sauce. Put an onion ring or two and the BBQ sauce in the taco and you’ve got a tasty Tex-Mex treat.
