Most of our favorite fast food places will let you order wild things, long forgotten menu items, and custom dishes with a wink and a nod. As long as there is a button for it and a lack of federal regulation on your dish, it can be made.
Animal Style at In-N-Out
The least secretive thing on this list. Getting it Animal-Style means throwing on some grilled onions, extra spread, more pickle, and a mustard-cooked burger patty. You won’t know how you lived without it.
Protein-Style at In-N-Out
Whether you’re going gluten-free or still living the Atkin’s Way. Hand-leafed lettuce wrapped around your patty and fixins is an almost guilt-free way to get your burger craving taken care of.
The Gibraltar at Blue Bottle Coffee
Blue Bottle Coffee is known for their New Orleans Iced Coffee but they have special glassware for The Gibraltar — a double-shot espresso and a touch of milk to ease it up.
The Hypocrite at Fatburger
Going vegetarian is not always a New Year’s Resolution that lasts. Sometimes a little compromise is a good thing and that’s why Fatburger has The Hypocrite, a veggie burger topped with bacon.
Mc10:35 at McDonald’s
The time McDonald’s breakfast ends is still a mystery to be solved but 10:35 AM is a fleeting moment when you can get a cheeseburger and an Egg McMuffin. Why not put them together? It’s a perfect marriage.
The Hulk at Taco Bell
Taco Bell has a reputation for putting everything into anything. The Hulk is less of a menu item and more of stuffing guacamole into a bean burrito. Additionally, adding guacamole to tacos, gorditas, and quesadillas gives your Tex-Mex some extra muscle.
The Suicide Burger at Burger King
The name might be a little misleading since The Suicide Burger or “Quad Stacker” is not the worst food you could put in your belly.
The Barnyard at Wendy’s
If you feel like having chicken, beef, ham, and bacon — “Meat” your match. The Barnyard is just about every protein you can add to a burger. If you’re feeling more adventurous — try dipping it in a cup of Wendy’s chilli.
Quesarito at Chipotle
Using a quesadilla to wrap a burrito might not be a classic Mexican recipe but it just seems so right.
“Skittles” at Jamba Juice
Peach lemonade, sherbet, frozen yogurt, and strawberries will get you tasting the rainbow. It can be a lot tidier than picking up those loose Skittles off the floor.
Cadbury Creme Egg Frappuccino at Starbucks
Ordering complex beverages during busy hours is not always good form. When it is quiet, get your barista to mix a Java Chip Frappuccino with Frappuccino Roast, vanilla syrup, caramel syrup, and vanilla bean powder will yield your favorite Easter treat.
Grilled Cheese at Subway
The closest you can get to a grilled cheese sandwich at Subway is grabbing a toasted veggie sub without the veggies except for maybe for a few slices of tomato. Add bacon for extra effect.
Poutine at KFC
The French-Canadian dish is tough to find south of the border but fries, shredded cheese (or cheese curds), and gravy in the same bowl isn’t an impossible task at KFC.
Pie or Muffin McFlurry at McDonalds
McDonald’s might not have invented the blended ice cream dessert but they’ve got a few fresh baked tools in their arsenal. If you want to kill two dessert birds with one stone ask the staff to mix in a pie or a muffin to your McFlurry.
