Are you getting sick and tired of the same old boring fast food options? Is the regular old Big Mac or McFlurry just not doing it for you anymore? Well maybe it’s time that you consider ordering from the secret menu that is hidden from the general population at almost every fast food joint you visit.
What do McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and Chipotle all have in common? They all have a surprisingly tasty hidden menu that you most likely didn’t even know exists.
While we can’t particularly say that anything on this list is considered healthy, we can say that these are some of the best and most delicious secret menu items that are currently available!
Hailing from the origins of Daytona Beach, Florida, the McGangBang – excuse the name – is the concoction of stuffing the Dollar Menu chicken sandwich into a double cheeseburger.
The McGangBang is by far one of the most famous secret menu items at McDonald’s - so don't be surprised if the cashier knows exactly what you are talking about. However, if your particular store refuses to make this burger, simply ask for the two burgers separately and construct this monstrous burger yourself - for approximately $2.00 how could you even go wrong?
The Suicide Burger
This one isn’t for the faint hearted – simply looking at this burger lowers your life expectancy –as the Suicide Burger is one of Burger Kings biggest burgers to date. Consisting of four meat patties, four slices of cheese, a heaping pile of bacon and special sauce, this burger has it all.
While as good as the Suicide Burger may taste, just be prepared to spend the entire next day working it off in the gym!
Animal Style Fries
In-N-Out's Animal Style Fries are quite possibly the most unsecret secret menu item to have ever existed. The popular fries have gained such a significant following they has even earned a place on the official In-N-Out website under the ‘Not So Secret Menu’.
Consisting of an order of fries with melted cheese, grilled onions and Thousand Island dressing, you simply cannot go wrong when ordering this secret menu item.
Apple Pie McFlurry
Engage your inner fat kid because this dessert is quite possibly one of the best things to come out of McDonald’s. Ordering this delicious dessert is actually quite simple as all you have to ask for is a plain McFlurry with a hot baked apple pie mixed in. For those feeling adventurous, you can even add a topping such as caramel or chocolate.
Let’s face it though; nothing quite beats a hot apple pie and some ice-cream!
The Barnyard Burger
Can’t decide if you feel like beef or chicken? Well the Barnyard Burger has the best of both worlds as the most popular secret menu item from Wendy’s is the combination of a chicken patty, beef patty, crispy bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato all squeezed into a soft bun. Although the burger features many different meats, you’d be surprised just how great it actually tastes!
While there are countless ways to order the Barnyard Burger, many have found that the easiest method is to simply add a burger patty to the Asiago Ranch Chicken Club.
The Triple Down
Just when you thought the infamous KFC Double Down was bad enough, fans of the creation have now created what is known among the secret menu community as the Triple Down. That’s right, as disgusting as it may sound, people are actually ordering this concoction.
The Triple Down consists of three pieces of their famous fried chicken, bacon and Cheese, and don’t forget to hold the bun. If the staff at your local KFC has yet to hear of the Triple Down, simply inform them that it is the triple-decker version of the Double Down.
Peanut Butter & Bacon ShackBurger
With the combination of sweet and savory, the Peanut Butter & Bacon ShackBurger is quite a hit among customers at the popular fast food joint. But many don’t even know that such a burger even exists as it once was actually on the regular menu for a weekend. However, due to the worries of the peanuts cross-contaminating the prep stations, management decided to pull the burger off the menu.
Don’t fear though, as if you happen to ask real nicely the staff at Shake Shack will still make you the burger despite it not being on the menu.
The Quesarito isn’t just any ordinary burrito as the famed secret menu item actually features a Cheese Quesadilla as the burrito shell - instead of a plain old flour tortilla. But unfortunately though, due to its rising popularity, Chipotle has raised the price of the Quesarito to $3.50 more than a standard burrito.
If you do happen to order the Quesarito, be sure to not order it during the busier periods of the day as it does not only frustrate the staff due to its lengthy process, but also the other customers waiting behind you!
Starbucks Green Eye
Are you coffee lover and regular at Starbucks? If you answered yes, this may be the secret menu item for you. The Green Eye is an additional three shots of espresso that is added to your regular coffee. Yes that’s right, if the Green Eye can’t get your day started, than I really don’t know what will!
So if you’re looking for that little extra kick, simply ask for a Green Eye to be added to your next regular drip coffee.
Poor Man’s Big Mac
If you’re short on cash, or simply don’t feel like eating the extra calories of a full sized BigMac, this particular secret menu item may just be for you. As the name suggests, the Poor Man’s Big Mac simply cuts out the extra calories of the third slice of bread and the second slice of cheese – best yet, you are also significantly lowering the price to just $1.49!
To order a Poor Man’s Big Mac, simple ask for a McDouble with extra lettuce and Big Mac sauce – don’t forget to mention that you don’t want the standard ketchup and mustard of the McDouble added.
