Did you make a video of you eating a burger?  That's weird.

Seems like a more refined version of the Sourdough Jack at Jack In the Box, refined enough to get a 5/5.
 
 Looks/sounds pretty delish to me. Maybe I'll go try it out later today; i have no idea what I'm eating for lunch anyway.
 
Oh and I think Jack in the Box sells a grilled cheese sandwich as a kid's meal option, along with the requisite hamburger/cheeseburger/chicken strip option. You could get a grilled cheese at In-N-Out as well, but who the hell actually does that?

My thoughts exactly. I tried out one of these burgers a few weeks ago and it was delicious! Loads of cheese, bacon and the toasted bread is pretty good too. I haven't gotten it since because its fairly greasy, even for Carls Jr ... but it's soooo goooood.

"It's gonna fill me up pretty right for the rest of the night" was the best part.

@piecat: yup, follow me & bruce, we talk about music a bunch 
 
@masternater27: that was an accidental rhyme that turned out to be awesome... might slap it in a song somewhere 
 
@JJWeatherman: eh, it might be.... yeah it is 
 
@VinceNotVance: I don't have a Jack in the Box near my area :( 
 
@rjayb89: I'll look into it

@TurboMan: You're not missing out on much. It's an institution here because it's open 24 hours, so it attracts drunks and late-night stragglers since it's the only thing open late nearby campus. From what I assume, going from the Grilled Cheeseburger at Hardees/Carl's Jr to a Sourdough Jack is like going from a piece of filet mignon to a McDoublecheeseburger.

@TurboMan: You better use that rhyme or I will. 
 
@VinceNotVance:  I've had so many drunken meals at Jack in the Box over the years.  I pretty much agree with your sentiment about sourdough jacks, but the new grilled sandwiches they have are worth a try.  I only had one because it was free, but it was totally delish.  Not really a hamburger at all, but good all the same.

i know you can get a grilled cheese thing from mcdonalds cuz i have a friend who used to do that before they started selling salads. 
 
kind of makes me wish i had more variety in fast food places near me, because all i have is mcdonalds, burgerking, wendys, and steak and shake....

I'm eating this burger as I type (the Six Dollar variety, actually) and it's friggin' delicious. Much like I mentioned before, it's most definitely a more refined version of the sourdough jack.  It still tastes like fast food hamburger, however.
