24 Secret Restaurant Menus Revealed


Mention “secret menus” and many people think of hidden functions on Blackberries or Xbox games. Actually, secret menus refers to items you can special order at restaurants that aren’t mentioned on standard menus.

Some places, like Chipotle Mexican Grills, have a whole secret menu that’s limited only by your imagination. On the other hand, In-N-Out Burger’s secret menu” is so unsecret it’s posted on their Web site. Kind of takes the cool factor out of having the inside scoop, doesn’t it?

If you’re looking to impress a date or just like that feeling of “knowing the chef,” here are 24 restaurants that offer secret menus. Remember, not all may participate in the hidden menu. However, if you try to order something and the server looks at you with a blank look, don’t give up. Describe the dish and usually they’ll make it for you anyway.


  1. yeah right, the “restaurants” listed here that appear near me (ie little caesars, burger king, etc), are all run by teenage knuckleheads, and i can guarantee and absense of satisfaction if i asked for anything from these lists.

    “hey can i get the stuffed crust pizza?” wink wink
    “uh, derr, like uh, we uh, like derr, aren’t pizza hut, like, duuuude. like, this is, like, little caesars” drooool.

  2. Be careful with this. I used to work at a deli in an area that had begun to attract some tourists. A few “tour-ons” decided they would name an egg sandwhich themselves and use it as though it was their secret. Nothing pissed us off more than to get an order of a “Creeker” instead of “fried egg and jalapenos on an english muffin” – a few of the employees did gross things to the sandwich
    If you find yourself at a locally owned place and decide you know a secret menu or have the inside scoop on a dish, you might not be happy with the results.

    1. I’ve had it before (I haven’t ordered it by name, but I have assembled it), but I thought a McGangbang was a Double Quarter Pounder with a McChicken in the middle. I call the Double Cheeseburger/Junior Chicken version a Budget McGangbang.
      Also, the description of a McGangbang doesn’t match the picture in this article.

  3. The natives turned on that post pretty quickly.

    “I work at McDonald’s part-time, and someone should really do some fact checking…”

    What a great line.

  4. applebee’s “veggie pizza” is basically a tortilla with spinach and artichoke dip poured on top of it with mushrooms and diced tomatoes (cooked until the crust is crispy). It is literally the ONLY reason i continue going to applebees, but i guess its on some secret menu because they stopped listing it about five years ago. And yet I’ve never gotten a second glance when I order it.

  5. DQ has always had the Peanut Buster Parfait in Oregon, so I don’t know what’s secret about that. The secret about DQ is if you order a regular burger you get the e coli burger instead!
