Does anyone order from secret menus?? I didn't even know this existed.


Fast Food Secret Menus: Top 10 Food Chains With Hidden Menus

By Kelli Shiroma

It's no secret that nationwide chains like McDonalds, In-N-Out Burger and Jamba Juice have secret menus. But what items are on these menus ... and why, in many cases, are they kept under wraps?

Many of these chains’ secret menu items are regularly requested but hardly publicized, according to Business Insider. Consequently, the news about the secret menu items are passed via word of mouth or are known by customers who frequent these particular eateries.

Although secret menus have been around for a long time at chains like Jamba Juice and In-N-Out Burger—the latter actually publicizes its secret menu—the concept is starting to catch on among other fast food chains, according to NPR. While customers often like knowing what’s on the menu before visiting an eatery for the first time, secret menu items add an extra layer of uniqueness to diners looking to make themselves distinct. NPR also reports that secret menus often make customers feel like they are “in the know” at certain eateries, thus enhancing the connection between the individual and the diner and increasing customer loyalty.

While some of the most popular secret menu items are unique concoctions—like In-N-Out’s “Animal Fries” and Jamba Juice’s “Gummi Bear” smoothie—others, like the McDonalds “Big McChicken,” are combinations of menu classics.

Here’s a list of some of the most well-know eateries with secret menu items that are sure to wow, please and sometimes puzzle you on your next trip.

Nice try puritans. The "Big McChicken" is called the McGangBang. It's a McChicken between a double cheeseburger. And it's delicious.

the article says the big mcchicken is a double mcchicken. the gangbanger is a different beast entirely.

I want to try ordering the big mcchicken!

Burger Priest's secret menu was better before they posted it on their website... still there are a few items they don't have listed. The High Priest is one of my favourites but lately I've been digging the Holy Smokes with bacon.

aka, chickenmac. you can order it from the mcdicks @ lakeshore/2nd, also the mcgangbang but that was a while back and the night crew is prob diff.

also the "land sea and air" sounds gross as fuck (good and bad) but i'd still crush it.

I get the pizza sub at subway all the time, only instead of the less meat of the pizza version just ask for the BMT with the meatball sauce.

But you can order whatever you want at McDonald's anyways. Extra sauce, extra patty, no onions, etc. I'm sure they'll add any patty to your sandwich for $ but who wants to bother them? McDonald's people are so nice, I rarely wanna bother them with bullshit like this. Just order your food and get the fuck out of line.

Pro-tip: at KFC or Popeye's, there's always an unadvertised Manager's Special. And if the girl doesn't know what you're talking about, they're new. You can always get the coupon discounts without the coupon. Just gotta ask and maybe order some extra stuff on top of it as a gesture.

So walk up to Popeye's and ask them about a special Manager's 10 piece special that's not on the wall. It's always a button on the cash. Same with KFC. Go near closing and they'll sell you as many as possible (before staff take some home) for like $10.

WHERE? OOOOOH.

It works at Main and Danforth, Eaton Centre and College and Spadina. And for KFC, Main and Danforth, Gerrard Square (the manager loves me and calls me over sometimes when he sees me lining up for roti lol) and the one in East Chinatown.

yeah, wtf...maybe it's not on the american menu - but it was one of the $5 subs here for the longest time.

Also, the BK "Rodeo" burger is the Angry Burger, without jalapenos.

I'd like a Filet O'Fish with two Big Mac patties, special sauce on the side, McChicken sauce on the top of a McArch bun with pickles smothered in McRib sauce. I mean, fuck off.

i worked at subway when i was young. i used to make this sandwich called the cholesterol burger.

foot long whole wheat bread, layer of cheese, meatball sauce, bacon, 2 rib patties, cheese, black pepper, bacon, 4 meatballs cut in halves, more sauce, cheese, more black pepper, more bacon.

savage.

the combo of the meatball sauce and the rib together is nothing short of amazing.

Starbucks will customize your beverage with whatever ungodly combination of shots, syrups, powders, dairy and whipped cream you may ask for. You might be charged for extras, but they won't say "NO your Mocha MUST BE AS WE SAY".

I've seen people make pizzas at subway NOT a sellable item once you get the frozen bread sticks to raise flatten them out like pizza then put in the oven, topping to taste.

When I worked there as a teen, my favourite was to make the Big Mac with quarter pounder meat patties instead of those small dinky ones. I'd also use the chicken sauce instead of the mac sauce.

When I worked at Harveys as a teenager, we would make something for ourselves called a "greasy moneyshot". Two flame broiled patties with three slices of cheese and three strips of bacon in the centre. We'd make up a batter with egg and flour (I think that's how we did it), carefully dipped this in batter and then carefully into the basket and then deep fryer.

I remember it would sometimes fall apart in the fryer but when it didn't, man oh man this was mighty on a toasted bun.

Recommended dressings + fixins: mayo, BBQ sauce, lettuce, pickles and hot peppers.
