TR Robertson –Continuing from where Part 1 ended, these are some of the Secret Menus of your favorite fast-food restaurants, going alphabetically, that will take us from In-N-Out thru Pizza Hut for this article. I tried a couple of the fast-food places close to me and ordered the Butterbeer Frappuccino at Starbucks, the Bun Taco at Del Taco and interviewed many of the managers and supervisors. The Butterbeer drink cost $5.45 and the Bun Taco cost $2.89. A lot of them had heard of the Secret Menus, but not many had much of an encounter with any orders. The Chipotle and Starbucks managers said they will basically make anything requested, as did the Burger King and McDonald’s supervisors. They all mentioned the addition of items does increase the cost of the food. The Del Taco employee said he had heard of the Stoner Burrito and even mentioned a Taco he had made which is not on the Secret Menu. All of them said they are only limited by what ingredients they have on hand in their stores. The Starbucks supervisor said as long as you can tell them what you want, they will make it. Here are some more interesting combinations to try for those of you who venture to fast food establishments.

Still more fast-food restaurants to cover as the final article on Fast Food Secret Menus will begin with Sonic and end with Wendy’s. Remember, you can ask for any of these items and the fast food restaurant you are in may be able to make the item, you might have to tell them what is in the specific request you are making, or they simply may not be able to make your request. It is worth a try at any rate. These items might cost you a little more as well. Make sure to go to the different web site listed in Part 1 for more info on the secret menus.
