What's on McDonald's Secret Menu?


There are a few off-menu items if you know to ask for them

The McKinley Mac is a Big Mac made with quarter-pound patties.

Discovering secret menu items is like being a part of an insiders’ club. Just think: everyone else in line is ordering what’s on the menu, while with a knowing wink and a nod you can conjure up an item that nobody else is ordering. While it might seem like the McDonald’s menu and their streamlined process might have done away with secret items, there are still a few that you can order, even if they require some assembly. And remember, because most McDonald’s are independently-owned franchises, they might not be receptive to every request.

Neapolitan Shake
Order this, and you’ll receive chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry shakes blended together.

McKinley Mac
If you get funny looks after ordering this, just ask them for a Big Mac, but with quarter-pound patties.

Grilled Cheese
Ask to replace everything in your burger (except for the bun) with melted cheese.

The Mc 10:35
If you order a McDouble and an Egg McMuffin during the brief window where both items are available, you can get rid of the bun and stick the patties and cheese right into the McMuffin. Now that’s what I call breakfast.

Pie McFlurry
Order a pie and a McFlurry, and they’ll blend them together for you if you ask nicely.

McCrepe
Order hotcakes and the yogurt parfait, and then combine the two (or ask them to do it for you).

McGangBang
The most famous off-menu item, this one is created by sticking a McChicken inside a double cheeseburger.


What's on the McDonald's and Burger King Secret Menus?

In some ways, secret menus have become less secret over the last few years.

More consumers know what they are and some chains, like In-N-Out Burger, have embraced them. Basically, a secret menu consists of items that can be ordered but do not appear on the normal menu board.

That does not mean you can order prime rib at a Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) . In general, the non-public items involve ingredients that are used by the chain in combinations other than the intended ones. At the coffee chain, that means using syrups, toppings, and extras to create new flavors.

In many cases, you can order secret menu items, and the person behind the counter will know what you want. Order a Birthday Cake Frappuccino, for example, and many baristas will know what to do, as that item has become a commonly ordered secret item. Request a Stormtrooper Frappuccino, however, and you had best be prepared to lay out the ingredients.

There's no guarantee that a McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) or Restaurant Brands International's (NYSE:QSR) Burger King will honor an off-menu request, but both chains have well-established secret menus. Here's what people in the know are ordering.

15. The Triple-Double Burger

Also known as the Superhero Burger, this item was released in 1995 and was coordinated with the release of Batman Forever. It included three beef patties and two slices of cheese, and was extremely hyped up.

Though, we’re not exactly sure how it relates to Batman…

It just couldn’t live up to that, and was removed from the menu not long after.


What's in that sweet, sweet "natural beef flavor"?

Cut to 1990 and the anti-fat crusaders, and the fast food giant's hand was forced. They cut beef tallow out in favor of pure vegetable oil, which was lower in unhealthy saturated fats, but they kept beef flavor in with "natural flavors" (via Eater). Now, "natural beef flavor" is a standard component of McDonalds' fries (via McDonald's). And though the secrecy surrounding the "natural flavor" industry runs deep — there's probably a flavor mafia out there somewhere (kidding) — we do know a few things about this mysterious beefy addition.

First off, it's probably not made from beef at all. Gary Reineccius, a food chemist, told Eater that it's merely meat-adjacent. "The flavor in beef is created during the cooking process. Food scientists identified the amino acids found in beef, added some very common sugars — starch hydrolysate — put it in a pot, added some citric acid to drop the pH, controlled moisture content, and heated it to the same temperature as meat. Then. *poof* we have meat flavor," he said. Sadly for vegans, it's still not totally animal-free — according to the McDonald's website, natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed milk as a "starting ingredient." But it sure makes those classic, starchy American favorites delicious.

As we know, McDonald’s Philippine Secret Menu is not a secret anymore. These unique and exciting creations namely the Triple Cheeseburger, Double McChicken, and Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese are already known by burger fans and foodies since last year.

What makes it super special is the unique combination of the beef and chicken meat on each bite. It’s sooo tasty and I can’t stop craving for it! Also, the sweet tangy sauce and onions on top are making it ultra special. This is my new fave from the Secret Menu!

Now here’s another one for the hungry guy! The all-new Double Big Mac is served with four pure beef patties, pickles, cheese, onions and the original Big Mac sauce.

10 fast-food restaurants with secret menu items

Sometimes what you see is much less than what you can get.

Secret restaurant menus aren't exactly a secret, but their contents can be, well, hidden. There are benefits to asking what's beyond the traditional menu, even if it means ordering a custom meal at a restaurant where you have a regular favorite.

Starbucks recently added Honey Citrus Mint Tea, also known as “medicine ball tea,” to its menu, but people have been ordering the formerly “secret” drink since October.

Medicine ball tea, regarded as the ideal cure for the common cold, is one of many Starbucks secret menu items. And Starbucks is just one chain with hidden options. Here are 10 more restaurants with meals you didn't know existed:

• In-N-Out Burger’s not-so-secret menu. While In-N-Out is transparent about the restaurant’s “secret” menu — which is just a list of popular custom orders — casual customers may not know you can get a 4x4 burger consisting of four beef patties and four cheese slices. Other popular orders include a grilled cheese, a “protein style” burger with lettuce instead of buns and the “Animal style” burger, which includes a mustard-cooked beef patty.

• Burger King. The restaurant goes big with the “Suicide Burger,” a four-patty cheeseburger with bacon and sauce. You can also order Frings — a combination of onion rings and fries, according to CBS News.

• Nando’s. While Nando's doesn't call it a hidden menu, there are multiple non-menu items customers can ask for, according to Nicola Davis, food manager for Nando's Peri-Peri USA. If you can't decide between the array of sauces, you can get multiple sauces split in halves or even quarters on your sandwich. Another non-menu option, which Davis said is "hidden in plain sight," is pineapple — on anything you order, whether it's a wrap or a salad.

• Five Guys. If the burgers and fries are getting old, treat yourself to the restaurant's very own patty melt. At Five Guys, you can add a beef patty to a grilled cheese sandwich for a spin on a classic, according to MSN.

• Taco Bell. If you ask your local Taco Bell employee to prepare “The Hulk” for you, they might stare blankly. It might be more effective to ask for a bean-and-cheese burrito with guacamole to transform a regular meal into, well, a green one. Other secret menu items include the Incredible Hulk — with even more ingredients — and a loaded Superman burrito, according to the Arizona Republic.

• Chick-fil-A. While spokesperson Amanda Hannah said in an email to USA TODAY that team members "may occasionally experiment with recipes in the kitchen," the company cannot confirm that chicken quesadillas — a commonly discussed non-menu item at Chick-fil-A — are available. Business Insider reported a list of non-menu items in 2015 including the quesadillas, buffalo chicken sandwiches and more. Hannah added that some customers like to combine iced tea and lemonade to create an Arnold Palmer.

• Chipotle. Typically, standing in a Chipotle line is an internal battle of burrito or bowl, but there are a few more options to throw into the mix, BuzzFeed reports. You can get a regular quesadilla from the menu, or you can fill a quesadilla with your favorite burrito fillings for a hybrid. The opposite option would be a quesarito, or a burrito that replaces the tortilla with a cheese quesadilla.

• McDonalds. If you're having a tough time deciding between a McFlurry and an apple pie, two classic McDonald's desserts, you can combine the two by ordering an Apple Pie McFlurry.

• Wendy’s. CBS News reports that the store secretly offers The Grand Slam, also referred to as the Meat Cube, because the burger with four beef patties resembles a cube of meat thanks to each patty’s square shape.


10. Subway

  • Pizza Sub (tomato sauce, salami, pepperoni and cheese)
  • The Wing Effect
  • The Old Cut
