Extra, extra, read all about it; everyone likes to be in on a little gossip occasionally. Patch is here to spotlight a few fast food secrets, menu items you might have been missing out on.
Subway has an unofficial menu, dreamed up mostly by long term customers and employees according to the Huffington Post. Off menu meals include a Deconstructed Breakfast Taco Flatbread, Chicken Cordon Bleu Sub and the Eggs Florentine Flatbread, while some have even become official menu specials like the new Pizza Sub.
Jamba Juice has a long list of secret, and even mildly explicit, smoothies on their website. You may want to whisper your order so customers in line behind you don’t get the wrong idea, as both a Thank You Jesus, and Dirty Orgasm are up for grabs.
In-N-Out has a link on their page with their not-so-secret menu, that asks: "Urban myth or just plain excellent customer service? You’ve heard the rumors, wondered what was on it, maybe even felt a little left out of the loop. But in reality, we don’t have any secrets at all. It’s just the way some of our customers like their burgers prepared, and we’re all about making our customers happy."
The menu includes a grilled cheese and 3x3, however a little more internet digging will help burger lovers find that In-N-Out brings new meaning to getting it your way. They’ll cut your burger in half, mustard grill it, add chilies to it, cook it medium rare, and even let you tell them how done you want your fries.
In-N-Out Burger is located at 1803 Taylor Road and 10309 Fairway Drive in Roseville.
Chipotle offers a fully customizable menu as it is, however, they have one of the best portmanteaus [blending of two words to a new word] the Patch may have ever posted. A Quesorito, also known as an upgraded version of the quesadilla, rolled around any burrito. How can you go wrong adding cheese to anything? You can also order loaded nachos with any of their toppings your stomach might desire.
Chipotle Mexican Grill has three Roseville locations at 3988 Douglas Blvd., 781 Pleasant Grove Blvd. and 1136 Galleria Blvd.
Starbucks has an entire fan-created website, which we shared last week, devoted to their secret menu, brimming with secret drinks. At one time even the trenta size was only available to those in the know. Order yourself up a Hipster Chai, a Burnt Marshmallow, or a Cookie Dough Frappuccino next time you need a caffeinated pick me up.
