McDonald’s has always believed that their menu actually belongs to their fans. This is why they make it highly customizable and even adapted to fit the taste of locals wherever they have locations. But what happens when the fans decide to take the official McDonald’s menu to the next level? You get the McDonald’s Secret Menu of course.

How To Order McDonald’s Secret Menu Items

The McDonald’s Secret Menu consists of cleverly named combinations created by fans with big imaginations and even bigger appetites. Some of them might tempt you, some might convulse you—but diehard customers can’t get enough of them. In fact, some secret menu items have gotten so popular, McDonald’s recently decided to add some of them to the regular menu.
Here’s a rundown of some of the most popular secret menu items, and how to order them:

1. The McGangBang / McNasty

A McGangBang or McNasty is a combo between a McChicken and a McDouble. You order them both from the Value Menu and place the McChicken inside the McDouble. The result is an 800 calorie burger/fried chicken combo. This burger combination might not live up to its nasty name, but you really get a bang for your buck.

2. Monster Mac

A Monster Mac is a Big Mac with — wait for it — eight beef patties! If that isn’t enough, you can also order it with eight slices of cheese, why not? Designed for insatiable McDonald’s fans, it is not only extremely popular but also quite a challenge to eat. Make sure to wash it down with a large drink.

3. Poor Man’s Big Mac

If you love McDonald’s, you’ve got to love Big Mac. What if we told you that you can get pretty much the same thing but pay significantly less? The Poor Man’s Big Mac is actually a McDouble with special Big Mac sauce, extra lettuce and no ketchup or mustard. The only thing missing is the middle bun, but the 50% price difference is worth it.

4. McKinley Mac

The juicy McKinley Mac is secret only if you take into consideration its rather limited public availability, which is Alaska. Advertised as We’re big on Alaska McKinley Mac, it takes its name from Mount McKinley, which is Denali’s former official name. You can order it outside Alaska as well, as part of McDonald’s Secret Menu—just order your Big Mac with quarter-pound beef patties.

5. McBrunch Burger

This delicious hangover burger used to be available all day long until March 2020 when McDonald’s decided to remove All Day Breakfast. Until they hopefully reverse their decision, the McBrunch Burger can only be ordered in a tight 30-minute interval in the morning.
All you have to do is show up at McDonald’s between 10:30 and 11:00 am when breakfast and lunch menus are simultaneously available. To get it, you have to order a Jalapeno Double with a fried egg and hash browns. If you want to stick to a budget, you can replace the Jalapeno Double with a regular Double Cheeseburger, but it would be a shame.

6. Surf & Turf Burger

Make your own Surf & Turf Burger by ordering a Double Cheeseburger and a Filet-O-Fish sandwich. Mash them together and you’ve got yourself a concoction that is sure to challenge your taste buds.

@_ms_frost_ I ❤️ the Filet-O-Fish 🐟 #mrsfrost #mrsbloom #mcdonaldshack #mcds #mcdonalds #fastfood #foodtik #foodie #foodtiktok #foodontiktok #tiktokfoodie ♬ mario sound – mandycap

7. Land, Sea & Air Burger

If you want to take the Surf & Turf Burger to the next level, say no more… You can get a fancy Land, Sea & Air Burger by ordering Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and McChicken all in one. If you want to lower your expenses, consider replacing the Big Mac with a McDouble from the Value Menu.

8. Big McChicken

Big McChicken doesn’t sound as impressive as it actually is and meat lovers adore it. Think of a Big Mac where the buns are replaced by McChicken Patties. Crazy, right? To score it, you have to order one Big Mac and three McChickens. As with other McDonald’s secret menu items, a way to make it friendlier to your wallet is to replace the Big Mac with the inexpensive McDouble.

9. Big Mac Sauce Fries

Do you love the fries at McDonald’s? Do you also love the Big Mac for its tasty one-of-a-kind sauce? You can enjoy them both by simply ordering Big Mac Sauce with your fries order. Who would’ve thought?

10. McCrepe

Early birds can treat themselves with delicious McCrepes every morning. All you have to do is order Hotcakes and a Yogurt Parfait. Top your hotcake with the parfait, fold it and enjoy this sweet secret menu item.

11. Neapolitan Shake

Burgers, fries and desserts aren’t the only things you can order from the McDonald’s secret menu. If you want to indulge in a delicious blend of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate, you can either order a Neapolitan shake or ask for an equal mix of these three iconic flavors. Not all servers know it by its name, but at McDonald’s, nothing is impossible to make.

12. McAffogato

Last but not least, we have a wake-up drink in the form of a vanilla milkshake with two shots of espresso. To make sure you have enough room to stir the espresso in, order the milkshake without whipped cream. Mix well and sip your heart out.

Is McDonald’s Secret Menu Real?

While not all items may be available at all locations and not all employees know the above codenames, you can customize pretty much everything at McDonald’s.
If someone tells you a secret menu item does not exist, just order the classic menu items that make it up and mix them yourself. That makes the McDonald’s secret menu quite real, whether they want to admit it or not.

Can You Order the McDonald’s Secret Menu All Day?

The McBrunch Burger and the McCrepes are the only items in McDonald’s Secret Menu that can be ordered only in the morning. In fact, the McBrunch is only available in the short window when the kitchen at McDonald’s is prepared to serve both breakfast and lunch. But that shouldn’t stop a true fan…

Make the Most out of McDonald’s Secret Menu

Besides ordering quirky and luscious mixes, you can also get more than your money’s worth by using promo codes and McDonald’s special offers from Slickdeals. Enjoy your tasty freebies and combos and pass on the word to your friends. Now you’re really loving it!
