Nachos | Chipotle

Understanding that Chipotle offers Nachos shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Chipotle does sell bags of chips and has all the ingredients necessary for nachos. Regardless, Chipotle does not list nachos on it's standard menu for whatever reason and instead put them on their secret menu.

Toppings for your Nachos from Chipotle can include beans, rice, cheese, lettuce, salsa, corn, sour cream, guacamole, and your choice of meat: braised carnitas or barbacoa, adobo-marinated and grilled chicken or steak. Next time you visit Chipotle, we highly recommend the Nachos from Chipotle's Secret Menu!

Taco Salad | Chipotle

The Taco Salad from Chipotle is one of the more rare items on the chain's secret menu. Unfortunately not every Chipotle location is able to make a Taco Salad because they don't have the proper shells or the right equipment to produce the toasted shells needed for a true taco salad. If you are located in the Southwest, there is a good chance your local Chipotle will offer this secret menu item.

Chipotle's Taco Salad features an extra deep fried tortilla bowl with all of your favorite taco salad ingredients pilled inside. If you visit a Chipotle that doesn't offer a Taco Salad, you can always just order nachos with a your favorite toppings piles on top.

Burritodilla | Chipotle

Chipotle's Secret Menu features the Burritodilla, not to be confused with Chipotle's Quesarito. Some would refer to this half burrito, half quesadilla as the younger brother of the Quesarito. Regardless, both secret menu options are impressive and delicious in their own right. Where the Quesarito is a quesadilla-burrito, the Burritodilla is a burrito-quesadilla. Confused yet? Don't worry, so are we.

The Burritodilla is essentially a regular quesadilla with half the contents of a regular burrito. It is half burrito, half quesadilla, hence the name. It looks like a quesadilla but tastes just like a burrito that has lots of cheese in it. It is like a chicken, or steak, or carnitas quesadilla on steroids. Dip it in a little bit of sour cream or guacamole and you are good to go. If that doesn't sounds amazing, then I don't know what does!

Don't let the size fool you. Chipotle's Burritodilla means business!

Quesarito | Chipotle

Many people believe that the Quesarito is the greatest food option on the Secret Menu at Chipotle, and rightfully so! The adjective of greatest can be taken as meaning either it is the best tasting or it is the largest item on the chain's secret menu, both of which are true.

The Quesarito combines both a quesadilla and a burrito, hence the name. The massive burrito features quesadillas as the shell instead of just a plain and boring tortilla like every other burrito has. The cheese inside the quesadilla shell not only increases the cheesiness flavor but it also goes well with whatever meat option you elect to include inside the beast of a Quesarito.

Quesadilla | Chipotle

The Quesadilla is the most well-known item on the Secret Menu at Chipotle and rightfully so! Just like any quesadilla from any common Mexican food joint, Chipotle's quesadilla features melted cheese inside a crisp tortilla. What makes Chipotle's Quesadilla so delicious is that you can choose the meat or veggies to be included inside the quesadilla.

The meat options at Chipotle include braised carnitas or barbacoa, adobo-marinated and grilled chicken or steak. You can also include several types of salsa, lettuce, avocado, beans, rice, sour cream, and veggies into your quesadilla or other type of food item from Chipotle

Pie McFlurry | McDonald's

Do you love McDonald's Apple Pies? Do you love McDonald's McFlurry's? If so, you should definitely try the Pie McFlurry on the Secret Menu at McDonald's.

The Pie McFlurry from McDonald's is a McFlurry that has an apple pie blended into it! The Pie McFlurry makes for an excellent dessert option at McDonald's and is perfect for sharing with a friend.

Poor Man's Big Mac | McDonald's

Big Macs from McDonald's standard menu cost around $4. Too expensive for you? If so, or if you just like saving money in general, then you should order the Poor Man's Big Mac off of the secret menu next time you visit McDonald's. There are many ways to save money at McDonald's and this is one of the most popular tricks.

Just order a McDouble with lettuce and Big Mac sauce instead of ketchup and voila, you have a Poor Man's Big Mac! Instead of $4, you will only be paying around $2. Not only will you your tummy be full and satisfied, you will have also saved some cash money! Talk about a sweet deal!

McKinley Mac | McDonald's

The McKinley Mac from the Secret Menu at McDonald's is a beast! For most people, the standard Big Mac from McDonald's is big but the McKinley Mac takes it one step further. Instead of standard burger patties, the McKinley Mac features quarter-pounder patties, Big Mac sauce, and even a large order of fries INSIDE the sandwich. #mindblown

I dare you to order the McKinley Mac the next time you are at McDonald's. Do it, you won't!

Chicken and Waffles Sandwich | McDonald's

Chicken and waffles have some loyal breakfast followers, and rightfully so! Plain and simple, chicken and waffles are delicious together. The combination might sound a little odd at first but once you try it you will realize there is nothing odd about the breakfast duo.

When ordering the chicken and waffles sandwich from McDonald's Secret Menu, you can try straight up asking for one but there is a chance the server won't know what you're talking about. If they seem perplexed by your order, order a Sausage McGriddle and a Southern Style Chicken Biscuit.  Then put the chicken patty between the McGriddle buns and you are good to go! Okay, the chicken and waffles might not be the best chicken and waffles you have ever tried but it is pretty close and comes at a very good price.

Note: chicken and waffles are only available at McDonald's during breakfast hours.

The Penny Pincher | Starbucks

Do you love both Starbucks Coffee AND saving money? Then you should probably order The Penny Pincher the next time you visit Starbucks. The Penny Pincher is a double-shot of espresso that is poured over a small cup of ice. The more ice you use, the more watered down the flavor will be. If you like your espresso with a bold flavor, order The Penny Pincher over just one piece of ice.

If you need to sweeten the flavor a little bit, be sure to use one or two packets of the brown sugar. The sugar crystals help expedite the breaking down of the ice and helps mix the whole drink together in a delicious fashion. Artificial sweeteners don't mix well with straight espresso and ice so make sure to use real sugar.

With The Penny Pincher, not only you do you get you coffee caffeine fix but you also save a little bit of money. I don't think anybody in the world has ever complained about saving money. Another way to save money at Starbucks is by ordering a drink with the size "short." The "short" size is just smaller and cheaper than the "tall" size and allows you to save money while still getting your caffeine fix.

Biscotti Frappuccino | Starbucks

Starbucks' Biscotti Frappuccino Recipe:

  • Begin with a standard frappuccino. 
  • Purchase or bring a Biscotti cookie with you. At some Starbucks locations, Biscotti's are available for sale. 
  • Ask your barista to blend the cookie into the frappuccino.
  • Enjoy!

Warning: baristas are typically very happy to accommodate your drink requests but please be aware of how busy the Starbucks is when you order the Biscotti Frappuccino. Having to blend a Biscotti into a frappuccino will take the barista an extra 1-2 minutes. If the Starbucks is packed with a line out the door, it is best to not order the Biscotti Frap as it will annoy both the barista and your fellow customers.

Puppuccino | Starbucks Coffee

If you go to a Starbucks and ask for a Puppuccino, they will serve you a disposable cup filled with whipped cream for your pup! This is one of the few secret menu items that we have come across that are meant for non-humans, although we are sure plenty of people would enjoy a cup full of whipped cream! The price of a puppuccino depends on the location you visit - most do not charge anything at all while others do charge a small fee.

Puppuccino Recipe:
  • One small cup
  • Fill with whipped cream
  • Let the pup enjoy!

This pooch is definitely enjoying some Starbucks for dogs!
In our opinion, any sweet treat for a dog should be free whenever it's owner buys something but it's up to each locations' discretion. Regardless if you do have to pay a small price, your dog won't enjoy it any less and to most dog owners that is worth a small price. If you're worried about having to pay for it, be sure to ask "how much is a puppuccino?" when you are placing your Starbucks order. The good news about this item is that you don't have to go to Starbucks to get a puppucino, you can create them at home with your own bottle of whipped cream! Check out the comments below to read about other's experiences ordering puppuccinos and what the puppuccino cost was if it wasn't free.

Hot Sauce Delivery | Del Taco

This post is kind of particular in that it is not a secret menu item that you can order in-store. However, it is pretty awesome and it's a secret so we figured it was worth posting. Instead of having to stock up on Del Taco hot sauces every time you eat there, you are able to order Del Taco hot sauce packets to be delivered to your house!

$4.99 gets you 50 hot sauce packets delivered to your door including a storage bucket. Pretty rad, huh?!

Stoner Burrito | Del Taco Secret Menu

Do you consider yourself a stoner? Maybe not. But do you have an appetite like one? If so, this Del Taco Stoner Burrito was created with you in mind. It's essentially a big 1/2 pound bean and cheese burrito but with delicious crinkle fries, red sauce, and special sauce added to it to take the burrito to the next level of enjoyment. Not only is it much better tasting but it also fills you up quite a bit more.

Del Taco's Stoner Burrito Recipe is as follows:
  • Begin with half-pound bean and cheese burrito
  • Add red sauce
  • Add special sauce
  • Add crinkle cut fries
  • Enjoy!

Note: This secret menu item at Del Taco was created in the Inland Empire as it's obvious the burger/burrito spot knows their customer base. Some Del Tacos outside of Southern California may have not heard of the Stoner Burrito before. In that case, simply order the half-pound burrito with the ingredients listed above and let the employee(s) know what the item is called and that it is part of Del Taco's Secret Menu. Don't be distraught if you have to explain the recipe to them as you definitely don't want to pass on experiencing this burrito regardless if you are actually a stoner or not. The best way a secret menu spreads is by word of mouth!

Stoner Burrito
Uuhhhhhh.......Can I have four stoner burritos, please?

Bun Taco | Del Taco Secret Menu

The Bun Taco is our favorite item on Del Taco's Secret Menu. It takes the best part of a taco, which is the taco insides, and combines it with the best part of a drive-thru burger, the bun. The Bun Taco is a combination of taco meat, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese (which is all hand grated), and a burger bun. If the server at Del Taco doesn't understand your order, which would be shocking because the name is quite obvious, just explain the following recipe and they should easily understand the Bun Taco concept.

Taco Meat + Taco Dressings + Burger Bun = YUMMY!

Del Taco's Bun Taco Recipe:

Wish Burger | In-N-Out

The In-n-Out Secret Menu includes an item called the Wish Burger, which is just a fancy or unique name for a vegetarian "burger." We get it, sometimes just saying "veggie" can get quite boring so we appreciate the respect the Wish Burger considering that. But, we are perplexed why somebody would eat at In-n-Out if they weren't going to enjoy their fresh patties, plus this veggie burger option doesn't look at filling as some true veggie patties. Unless, of course, the person is vegetarian and being a good sport going with friends or family who want a Double-Double. If that is the case then we also have mad respect for them being a trooper by tagging along and enjoying the Wish Burger.

Wish Burger Recipe:
  • Begin with a Hamburger, Cheeseburger, or Double-Double. 
  • Remove 100% fresh beef patty or patties. 
  • Option: cheese and spread.
  • Enjoy!

The "Wish Burger" is just another name for a veggie burger from In-N-Out. While other restaurant might feature veggie patties, In-N-Out does not. They simply take a regular burger or cheeseburger and remove the beef patties before adding extra vegetables: tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and onions.

Flying Dutchman | In-N-Out

The Flying Dutchman burger recipe from In-n-Out's secret menu:
  • Two 100% fresh beef patties
  • Two slices of American cheese
  • Nothing else. 
  • Seriously, that's it.
The Flying Dutchman is literally two beef patties and two slices of cheese stacked together for your enjoyment. If you're the type of person that doesn't have time to allow veggies, sauces, or buns to distract you from the goodness of the In-n-Out burger patties then this burger concept was made with you in mind.

If you're wondering where this secret menu item got its name from, we have no idea. A Flying Dutchman is a ghost shit from legendary stories that is doomed in such a manner that it can never reach port and must sail the seas for forever and forever. Not sure how such a concept inspired the naming of a just a double patty and cheese burger but for whatever reason it caught on and is now the official name of it on the In-n-Out secret menu.
