We all love a good secret. Preferably one that’s extra juicy, perhaps with a flavor we’ve never come across before. Well, we have good news: you can order from a “secret menu” at many of your favorite fast food joints. If you find nothing on the regular menu is satisfying your cravings, peak at some of these juicy secrets.
1. Starbucks Secret Menu – Keto Macchiato
Just when you thought it was hard enough choosing just one drink off Starbucks regular menu, a secret version filled with all kinds of goodies pops up. And the best part? Many of these secret drinks are also healthy, fitting into a keto or paleo diet depending on what milk you choose (we recommend going with almond).
Believe it or not, many fast food joints have keto-friendly options on their menus. Often, all you have to do is ask! Check out these 10 keto-friendly options at popular fast food joints if you want to plan before you go.
2. Burger King Secret Menu – Rodeo Burger
If you’re headed to Burger King, chances are you’re craving, well, a burger. Fortunately, BK offers not only its usual assortment of regular burger options, but also some secret favorites.
Our go-to is the Rodeo Burger, which features a flame-grilled beef patty topped with smoky BBQ sauce and crispy, golden onion rings.
3. Wendy’s Secret Menu – T-Rex Burger
For those of your with a Jurassic appetite, look no further than Wendy’s T-Rex burger. We don’t say this lightly.
The T-Rex burger features 12 (yes, 12!) of Wendy’s famous smoky beef patties. The only issue you may have is actually taking a bite. Cheers if you’re able to somehow bite into all 12 at once.
4. McDonald’s Secret Menu – McBrunch Burger
Sometimes, especially when we’ve had neither breakfast or lunch yet, we have a hard time choosing what to order for brunch. Perhaps we want eggs, but also chicken. Oh, or maybe a sandwich.
The McDonald’s McBrunch Burger combines all of these in a secret sandwich, so you don’t have to choose.
5. Sonic Secret Menu – Grilled Ham and Cheese
The secret menu at Sonic contains a taste of childhood, featuring smoky ham nestled between traditional melted cheese and grilled bread in their classic Grilled Ham and Cheese. You won’t see it on the regular menu, but it’s there.
Add another layer of nostalgia by ordering one of their classic shakes.
6. In-N-Out Secret Menu – Flying Dutchman
Looking for another keto option on your fast food run? In-N-Out offers a secret burger called the “Flying Dutchman,” which consists of two beef patties with a layer of cheese in the middle. To keep this one keto, order it sans fries.
7. KFC Secret Menu – Poutine
Bring a taste of la Canada to your table on your next KFC run. Order the Poutine, which features classic KFC popcorn chicken layered with fries, chicken, cheese, and covered in gravy. Some locations may not recognize it when you order “poutine,” but simply order these items and ask for them to be layered!
8. Arby’s Secret Menu – Meat Mountain
When limiting yourself to the classic roast beef at Arby’s isn’t an option, order something with many more options in one: Arby’s secret Meat Mountain sandwich.
This beauty is layered with chicken tenders, roast turkey, ham, brisket, corned beef, Angus steak and cheddar cheese. Crispy bacon completes the masterpiece.
9. Subway Secret Menu – Eggs Florentine Flatbread
If you’re craving Italian, but want something a step outside of the regular Italian BMT, order the secret Eggs Florentine Flatbread from Subway. It’s great for breakfast as well, as it’s layered with egg whites, red onion, banana pepper, spinach, black olives and Italian dressing.
10. Taco Bell Secret Menu – Enchirito
Unsatisfied with the taco options on Taco Bell’s standard menu? Well, we have another Tex-Mex option for you. Order the Enchirito from their secret menu for an option that’s similar to an enchilada, loaded with seasoned ground beef taco meat, beans, diced onions, cheddar cheese, and “red sauce.”
11. Five Guys Secret Menu – Presidential Burger
The secret Presidential burger was aptly named after it was discovered former President Obama orders the same thing during his regular visits to Five Guys: a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeño peppers, and mustard.
Go presidential and try it out on your next trip.
12. Whataburger Secret Menu – Veggie Burger
What would a burger joint be without a veggie burger option? Although Whataburger’s Veggie burger is considered part of its secret menu, it’s deliciousness is no secret. In fact, it may taste familiar to you. Whataburger subs a traditional beef patty for a hashbrown patty with mushrooms and other veggies in this burger option.
13. Chipotle Secret Menu – Quesadilla
Have you ever thought it odd that a Mexican restaurant’s menu doesn’t serve quesadillas? Well, Chipotle isn’t one of those, but the kicker is, you have to order a quesadilla off their “secret” menu. Just order it up, or else order your favorite meat and veggies flat between two flour tortillas.
14. Applebee’s Secret Menu – Pepper-Crusted Sirloin with Whole Grains
You may or may not see Applebee’s Pepper Crusted Sirloin with Whole Grains on your regular Applebee’s menu, but if you don’t, not to worry. Most Applebee’s know exactly what you’re asking for when you order.
This secret item is a must if you’re looking to keep things light, but still peppery and tasty.
15. Krispy Kreme Secret Menu – Vimto Doughnut
Krispy Kreme’s secret doughnut, the “Vimto” doughnut, is so secret it requires a secret code to order. This purple, fruity glazed doughnut is only available during select times, so you’ll need to go in and say, “I see Vimto in Krispy Kreme,” as the secret code to see if it’s available.
It turns out secret menu items are becoming more popular nowadays due to customers wanting more customization options with their orders. It’s often easier to order a “secret” menu item than order a regular item with a new list of custom toppings that someone has already ordered before.
