McDonald’s Secret Menu Items in 2020

Out of the list of secret menu items, you’ll recognize quite a few. The menu was born from twisting and tweaking the original menu into new (and quite possibly shocking) dishes. Who knows, your new favorite meal may be on here! Here are McDonalds secret menu items certified to blow you away:

McKinley Mac

The Big Mac could prove to be overwhelming for some people. For others however, two regular beef patties just won’t cut it. For those who feel this way, the McKinley Mac is the solution to their burger problems. Imagine your usual Big Mac with Quarter Pounder patties instead of your usual regular patty!



Grilled Cheese

McDonald’s serves grilled cheese? Shh… It’s a secret! Actually, the truth is, any restaurant that has bread and cheese slices in its kitchen can whip up a grilled cheese. At McDonald’s, you can get yours on a hamburger bun with the same American cheese that goes on every burger and sandwich on the menu.

Big McChicken

If you don’t have any issue with the beef patties on your Big Mac but are itching to replace those buns with something yummier and meatier, the Big McChicken was created for you. Imagine getting three McChicken sandwiches, taking those chicken patties out, and using them instead of your regular buns. This creation is definitely meaty heaven!

Monster Mac

Think the McKinley Mac still couldn’t give you the heart attack you’re looking for? Try the Monster Mac, one of the heaviest items in the McDonalds secret menu, and see if you can handle it. Oozing with that special sauce and cheese plus a mix of lettuce, onions and pickles are eight beef patties on top of each other between the usual burger buns. If you feel like that extra piece of bread on the middle of the Big Mac is still a must, you could always ask for it to be included to your burger.



While we’re still on the amazing thought of how mixing chicken and beef in a burger actually turns out great, the McGangBang proves to be an awesome example of this combination. Imagine mixing a Double Cheeseburger and a McChicken burger. Once again, that mix of beef and chicken patties combined with lettuce and mayo turns out to be one tasteful favorite on the McDonalds secret menu.

Land, Sea and Air Burger

Land, Sea and Air BurgerIf you still aren’t contented with that chicken and beef combination, then maybe it’s time to add something else to the mix. Get a protein overdose by taking your regular Big Mac and adding a McChicken patty and a Filet-o-Fish patty in it. A McDonalds secret menu item for those who can’t decide what to get, this creation combines three different animals in one big burger.


Poor Man’s Big Mac

Craving for a Big Mac but running low on funds? You can finally satisfy your craving with very little difference! You can get a Double Cheeseburger and ask for that special Big Mac sauce. Add some diced onions and lettuce and start enjoying a less expensive version of the Big Mac, using regular buns instead of that sesame seed bun.


Fries and Big Mac Special Sauce

One thing that makes the Big Mac special is the sauce that comes with it. Instead of the usual ketchup, try asking for Big Mac sauce and dip your fries into it. Now you’ll finally see what truly makes the Big Mac so addicting.

  4. John and Gail Beal says:

    You took away the salad during covid 19 and I understand why but for those of us who do not eat bread of any kind you need to consider an alternative. How about a double or Big Mac low carb. Which is the inside of a double or Big Mac with lettuce and tomato on each side. I would gladly order it.

  5. Box Holder says:

    The Dailey Double is by far the best item when McRibs are not for sale.

  6. Karen Jones says:

    The burgers taste weird they don taste the same I figured it’s different patties and if that’s the problem maybe you need to go back to the original ones that’s why I stopped eating at McDonald’s

  7. Becki Shelton says:

    I hate those skinny french fries. You need to go back to your regular fries. The ones you have now are dangerous. They are like eating tooth picks. Your regular hamburger patties are not much bigger than a Krystal/white castle patty. Such a shame. No quality just quantity
