McDonalds’ Secret Menu Is Real, and Other Questions Answered by a McDonald’s Manager

This manager did an AMA on Reddit and put a lot of questions to rest

The secret menu at McDonald's is real, and so is the McGangBang.

A McDonald’s manager confirmed via Reddit that the fast food giant has a secret menu.

The anonymous 24-year-old manager from Scotland clued customers in on some McDonald’s intel in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) thread. As she writes in the post, “You can order from the ‘Secret Menu.’”

The Daily Meal has previously reported on the McDonald’s secret menu, and now the manager has confirmed that the McGangBang is definitely on there (it’s a McChicken in a  double cheeseburger), as is the Land, Air, and Sea Burger, which is composed of a Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, and McChicken sandwich stacked together to make a monstrous burger.

The manager also urges readers not to order the grilled chicken, because “It's horrible frozen chicken that we defrost and steam and it's a bit gelatinous.” She also says that customized orders are called “grill orders.”

McDonald’s food preparation is going to change, according to the Reddit source. Instead of cooking the meat fresh, putting it on the burger, and hot-holding it for 10 minutes, team members will be taught to hot-hold the meat on a tray, and the buns and dressings will be made fresh.


Asked to address the recent closures of many McDonald’s locations, she says: “I honestly think McDonald's is out of date. It's the biggest and most widespread of all the fast food joints but somehow stays a step behind the competition. It's like Microsoft. How come Outlook and Internet Explorer are the worst but from the most widespread company?”
