Find out how to order from a restaurant’s secret menu

Let’s say you’re in line at McDonald’s and you hear the person in front of you order a McGangBang. First you wonder if you misheard it, then start looking at the menu to find it but it’s not there. Well, chances are it’s actually part of the restaurant’s secret menu.

Yes, that’s right, I said secret menu. Unposted menu items actually exist at many fast food restaurants. They’re comprised of unofficial and unadvertised selections not on the restaurant’s regular menu. While some items were created by the restaurants themselves, most were actually invented by customers and passed on by word-of-mouth.

Thanks to website #HackTheMenu, you can now discover these hidden items for yourself. #HackTheMenu bills itself as “the ultimate and most complete Secret Menu resource”, and for each fast food chain covered they not only name the secret menu items, but also offers photos, prices, and more.

In fact, some of the features on the website even include tips on how to describe the item to your order-taker. This becomes particularly handy if that location doesn’t know about the secret menu, and they can at least still make it for you.

If you visit their website, be sure to read people’s comments as well; they offer additional tips when ordering. For now, take a look at 21 secret menu items below:
