Jack In The Box is one of those fast food spots that seems to think outside the box on some of it’s creations. Sour Dough, taco, marketing for late night, and breakfast all day are just a few of those ideas. The latest is the Buttery Jack. In short, it is a burger slathered in garlic herb butter.
In the immortal words of Homer Jay Simpson, “mmmmm butter.”
The idea of the Buttery Jack comes from old school steak houses where the Rib-eyes, Tenderloins, or Sirloins would have a pat of garlic herb butter. For the Jack In The Box version it is a 1/4 beef patty topped with garlic herb butter with either lettuce and tomato or with hickory smoked bacon and real Swiss cheese.

I chose to try the Bacon & Swiss Buttery Jack because … well … come on … it has bacon and cheese. I also found it amusing that the bacon and Swiss version had no tomato or lettuce. I think the rationale is that you only eat vegetables when you are out of bacon.
The Bacon & Swiss Buttery Jack might have been a disgusting mess without the inclusion of the brioche bun. The bun absorbs some of the bacon, cheese, butter grease. The burger itself is very good but just a bit of a fat overload (it has 59 grams of fat!). Be ready to take some time after finishing your meal to nap, belch and contemplate the many bad decisions that lead you inevitably towards a fast food burger covered in butter when everything used to be so promising and filled with light.
Okay, enough with the food shame.
That being said, I give the Bacon & Swiss Buttery Jack 4 Coronaries.
