Phoood Hall of Fame: Jack in the Box Ultimate Cheeseburger

ultimatecheeseburger.jpgJack in the Boxís Ultimate Cheeseburger is in the Phoood Hall of Fame for several reasons. First, itís an extremely tasty burger. Second, it has been on the menu for about as long as I can remember and has been consistently good the entire time. Third, I donít have to pick off the rabbit food (otherwise known as lettuce, pickles, onion, tomato etc.) like I have to with most other burgers. Sure, other fast food restaurants have their own version of the double cheeseburger, but none come close to the Ultimate Cheeseburger. Maybe itís because the others try too hard, while the Ultimate Cheeseburger keeps it simple with a perfect combination of meat, American and Swiss cheeses, and condiments. Jack must have been reading my mind when he thought up this burger, because it has exactly what I want and none of what I donít want. I couldnít ask for anything more.

Not only is it great, but it was sung about by the Meaty Cheesy Boys:

Girl, you know that there's one thing that I love
But it's not you I'm thinkin' of
I want the ultimate cheeseburger...
(break it down)
Cheese, meat, cheese, cheese, meat and that's it
Baby, you know it's hot and juicy....

If you haven't seen/heard search Meaty Cheesy Boys on
