Wild fast-food secret menu items

Wild fast-food secret menu items

Just about every fast-food stand has at least one off-menu item that they’ll gladly prepare for you, from a peanut butter and bacon burger to a sandwich with four different types of meat. 

Wendy’s: Barnyard Burger

Wendy’s actually has a fairly comprehensive secret menu, complete with named items like the Grand Slam, which is four patties in one burger (also affectionately called the "Meat Cube"). Our favorite? The Barnyard: a burger patty, a spicy chicken fillet, ham, and bacon, with a slice of cheese in between each. Carnivorous perfection.

In-N-Out: Animal-style fries

In-N-Out advertises its own "Not-So-Secret Menu,"  which is home to what is arguably its most legendary creation: the Animal-Style burger. A patty cooked with mustard is topped with lettuce, tomato, special sauce, pickles, and grilled onions, and it’s delicious. But what about Animal-Style fries? An order of fries topped with cheese, secret sauce, pickles, and grilled onions? Otherworldly.

Taco Bell: Chili Cheese Burrito

It’s messy, but they’ll make this discontinued menu item for you if you ask nicely. And chili beats beans any day.

Shake Shack: Peanut butter and bacon burger

If adding peanut butter to your bacon burger is your thing (we hear it’s pretty tasty), the friendly folks at Shake Shack will be more than happy to add a smear to yours.

KFC: Mashed potatoes, bacon, and gravy on anything

Want your Doublicious sandwich topped with a schmear of mashed potatoes and a ladle of gravy? How about bacon on those Chicken Littles? You got it.

Sonic: Deep-fried pickles

These were once featured on Sonic menus, but have been discontinued. But they’ve got pickles and batter back there, so try asking nicely.

McDonald’s: Chicken and Waffles

If you want a chicken and waffle sandwich from McDonald’s during the breakfast hours, just ask for one and they might make it for you. If they won’t, buy a sausage McGriddle and a Southern Style Chicken Biscuit, put the chicken in between the McGriddles, and boom: chicken and waffles, or something close to it if you want to nitpick. And hey, you’re left with a sausage biscuit!
