Rumors of secret menu items at McDonald’s have made the rounds on the internet for years.
While McDonald’s corporate leadership officially denies the existence of the secret menu, individual managers have confirmed the existence of off-menu items. You just have to convince a friendly McDonad’s staff member to go off playbook to make one for you, or just assemble a special meal yourself from standard orders.
Here are the best foods on the McDonald’s secret menu.
Land, Sea, and Air Burger
Like the Dream Team of burgers, the LSA combines the powers of the best McDonald’s sandwiches into one monster meal. It consists of a Big Mac, a Filet-O-Fish, and a McChicken stacked on one another, buns distributed at key structural points throughout the sandwich.
Some people swap buns for lettuce to make a Big Mac healthier. Others (winners) swap buns for McChicken patties. The fried chicken adds crunch, plus extra meaty heft of course, to the classic burger.
Despite an authoritarian policy toward breakfast hours, McDonald’s is actually a great place for brunch if you order this French off-menu item. Top hotcakes with yogurt parfait, fold like a crepe, drizzle with syrup and sprinkle with granola. Boom, fancy French brunch at your local fast food joint.
Apple Pie McFlurry
Smash together two of McDonald’s most popular desserts and you’re bound to end up with something delicious. Kindly (kindly!) request the staff blend an apple pie into a McFlurry, but even if you can’t get the official order, you can DIY the off-menu dessert by mixing them together yourself.
Hash Brown McMuffin
Stack a hash brown inside your McMuffin for the ultimate breakfast treat. It’s a big stack for a big morning.
One and a Half Pounder
Can you layer six quarter-pounder patties into one epic burger? Yes, you can. Should you? Well that’s a decision for you, your waistline and your doctor.
The Chicken McGriddle is proof that dreams do come true. The secret menu item recently made the jump to the official menu, meaning it’s easier than ever to order a fried chicken sandwich doused in maple syrup. It is indeed a good morning.
