Brian’s Blog: Secret Fast Food Menus Intrigue Me image

I read in USA Today that several fast food outlets have “secret menus”, with items that they will serve, but are not posted on menu boards. As Mr. Spock used to say, “Fascinating”.


USA Today had an article on Tuesday about secret menus at some of the chain and fast food franchises. It’s kind of up to the franchise holder to decide weather to serve these items, but remember that the “Big Mac” started out as one of these things at one McDonalds store in the midwest.

The one that caught my eye is the “Mc10:35″.  USA Today reports:

While McDonald’s insists it doesn’t have a secret menu, social media insists otherwise. And the best-selling “secret” item can only be purchased when McDonald’s is changing grill shifts from breakfast to lunch. That’s when some folks like to concoct the Mc10:35 (named after the approximate time of the shift change). The combo is the inside of a McDouble burger, minus the bun (from lunch), plopped inside an Egg McMuffin (from breakfast).

“Customers have come up with their own McDonald’s items,” says spokeswoman Danya Proud. But will the restaurants sell them that way? “That’s decided on a restaurant-by-restaurant basis.”


As Steve Martin said as Navin Johnson in “The Jerk”, “If that’s out there, there must be so much more out there!”

I don’t know if I would go for the “Mc10:35″, but some people obviously like it. My research shows that it’s a big deal in the San Francisco Bay area.

Here’s the question:

Can you come up with a special, secret menu item that you would like see at a chain restaurant or fast food franchise?
