McDonald’s Pizza, Burger King Tacos, And A Few Other Endangered Fast Food Menu Items Still Available At Select Locations!
There are hundreds of “SECRET MENU ITEMS!” posts around the internet. We all know about the quesarito from Chipotle and the animal style fries from In-N-Out. Those aren’t really secrets anymore, so we’re not going to bore you with yet another secret menu post.
We try to keep things fresh and exciting by providing you with information that hasn’t been shared on Facebook a million times. And while you might think you know all there is to know about your favorite fast food restaurant, you might be surprised by a few of the items on this list.
Let’s kick things off with the McDonald’s pizza…
It’s Not Delivery. It’s Pizza…From McDonald’s?
Many people believe McDonald’s pizza died in the 1990s along with bowl cuts and butterfly clips, but there are at least two locations in the US still serving the McPizza:
According to Reddit user Stang5_o2002, the pizza “isn’t bad at all,” which isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement. But it’s probably what you expect from any product McDonald’s puts out. One of the reasons the McPizza died off in the ’90s was because of the 11-minute cook time. Customers often complained about the long waits, and the franchise owners were eventually like, “These impatient pricks don’t deserve our amateurish pizza!“
But as mentioned above, the product is still hanging on! In addition to the two locations above, the “World’s Largest McDonald’s” in Orlando also serves pizza; however, it was shut down back in November. It’s scheduled to open again this month (March) in an even bigger building next door to the old location.
And yes, it will serve the McPizza. You can click here to check out a McDonald’s pizza commercial from 1993.
Limited Time? Not So Fast…
In the summer of 2015, Whataburger started promoting their limited time Root Beer Shake. It seemed to create a divide between their customers. Some people absolutely loved it, calling it the best shake they’ve ever had, and some people claimed it was the “worst root beer shake ever. Vanilla shake with a label and no root beer.”
The mixed reactions from their customers is probably one of the main reasons the fast food chain decided against adding the shake to their official list of menu items.
For those of you out there who did enjoy the shake, we have some good news. A Whataburger general manager participated in an “Ask Me Anything” thread on Reddit a few months ago, and he claims they will still make the shake for you if you ask.
“We don’t have any odd secret menu items. Root beer shake isn’t on our menus either but we still sell it. Avocado Bacon Burger isn’t on our menus anymore but we still sell it.”
You’re welcome. You can now drive to Whataburger and treat yourself with a root beer shake and an avocado bacon burger. But just a warning, you might have to call in sick to work the next day.
Have You Climbed Arby’s Meat Mountain?
This ridiculous sandwich went viral back in 2014. Fans of Arby’s started requesting this secret menu item after being inspired by a promotional photo the company used to promote their variety of meats. When word got out that some Arby’s locations were actually making these ‘Meat Mountain’ sandwiches, the people of the internet went crazy.
And for a few months, every food blogger was sharing their exhausting climb up Meat Mountain, but the fascination with the sandwich kinda died out in 2015.
The good news is that most locations still serve this heart attack on a tray. Some of the employees might look at you a little crazy when you ask them about the Meat Mountain, but just explain to them it’s a sandwich filled with every meat they serve and a few slices of cheese thrown on top.
It should set you back between $10-$20. Click here to watch competitive eater Matt Stonie climb the mountain in just 48 seconds!
The King Makes Tacos!
Burger King recently shocked the world by adding flame-grilled hot dogs to their menu. Surprisingly, the hot dogs are getting mostly positive reviews, but has everyone forgotten about Burger King’s tacos? That’s right, the King serves tacos as well.
The tacos were pretty popular back in the early 2000s, but sadly they are harder to find now. We can’t tell you the exact locations still offering the tacos, but we do know they are out there.
How do we know this? Twitter, of course. Thanks to the tweet you see below, we know at least one Burger King location in Utah sells tacos.
And after doing a little more searching around the web, it appears that several locations in Texas still serve the tacos as well. Most people have compared the taste of the tacos to Jack in the Box’s tacos, which is actually a compliment considering how many people love the tacos from Jack in the Box.
If your location still serves them, let us know in the comment section and we can start making a list!
Dairy Queen’s Black Sheep
Are you looking for a truly unique fast food experience? Well, we have some good and bad news for you. The good news is that we have the experience you’re looking for. The bad news is that you’ll have to travel to Moorhead, Minnesota to find it.
The Dairy Queen in Moorhead has been called “The Rogue Dairy Queen” because they have been ignoring orders from corporate HQ since opening back in 1949. It’s one of the few DQ’s out there still operating under a nearly 70-year-old contract that allows them to serve special treats outside of the corporate-approved menu items.
In fact, locals claim the Moorhead location is responsible for creating the Dilly Bar. This is something Dairy Queen doesn’t want you to know because the original owner of the store (Bob Litherland) was “kind of a rebel.”
This special location shuts down in the winter and has no indoor seating, but that’s okay with the people in Minnesota because the special treats you can’t find anywhere else are worth the wait. Treats like the Monkey Tail, a chocolate-covered frozen banana, and the Chipper Sandwich, which sounds incredible; vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies and dipped in chocolate.
And there is also something called the flaming sundae:
“He would make a hot fudge sundae and then he would dip a sugar cube in I don’t know what, and then he’d light it on fire.”
Yeah, I can see why corporate can’t fully get behind this location. I don’t want the 16-year-old employee at my local DQ playing with fire. I get nervous enough when they turn my Blizzard upside down.
Eat Mor Fish
One of the reasons Chick-fil-A is so successful is because of their simple menu. Chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, chicken wraps, waffle fries, chicken noodle soup, chicken biscuits…you get the point. They serve chicken, and people go crazy over it.
But did you know they also serve fish sandwiches? It’s true. Not every location offers the sandwich, and the locations that do offer it only serve it during the Lent season, which will be ending later this month. So if you want to try this limited menu item, you better start searching for one right now.
A Chick-fil-A in Chicago recently promoted the item on their Twitter page…
How does it taste? According to this blogger from Baltimore, “it tastes very good. The one I had was very moist.”
Ah, yes. Say moist one more time for me. Come on…don’t be shy.
Look at that. Do you see it? It looks like something your child makes for you while you’re taking a nap, and then you’re forced to eat it because you don’t want to crush their unrealistic dreams of becoming the next Gordon Ramsay.
Thankfully, the McSpaghetti isn’t available in the US. If you want to torture yourself with this creation, you’ll have to make a trip to the Philippines. According to people who have tried the McSpaghetti, the sauce was bland and the pasta was overdone.
Of course, those are just the reviews from the people who survived. Just think about all the people who didn’t make it.
