FIVE GUYS: PATTY MELT
PANERA: ADD A COOKIE TO YOUR FROZEN CARAMEL
The quesarito is essentially a burrito wrapped in a cheese quesadilla. This secret menu item might sound simple in nature, but Chipotle employees have reported that it's relatively difficult to make compared to other items. That's probably why the chain recently began charging an extra $3.50 for this calorie-heavy combination, which is best to order when the restaurant isn't busy.
IHOP: ONION-AND-FRENCH-FRY OMELET
Eating a super healthy meal probably isn't your main goal when you dine at the International House of Pancakes. So, why not go all in and order an omelet made with french fries and onions? Sure, it's a far cry from the fruit bowl, but this custom combination is a cinch for the cooks to fry up for your early morning indulgence.
THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY: CLUB SANDWICH WITH BROWN BREAD
P.F. CHANG'S: MONGOLIAN CHICKEN
STARBUCKS: FRENCH PRESS COFFEE
Starbucks offers many secret and seasonal menu items, but one of the best ways to hack the menu is to ask for coffee made with a French press. Many coffee aficionados prefer this brewing method because it doesn't use paper filters, which can change the taste of coffee by absorbing fats and oils. Most Starbucks will brew coffee with a French press upon request, but just know that it'll take longer and cost more than a regular coffee.
RED LOBSTER: SHRIMP PO' BOY
One of the most beloved menu items at Red Lobster is the Cheddar Bay Biscuits, which are delicious on their own but also go well with other dishes. Next time you're ordering shrimp at Red Lobster, consider asking for some cheddar biscuits so you can make yourself a simple, cheesy shrimp po' boy.
STARBUCKS: ORDER A PUPPUCCINO FOR YOUR DOG
OLIVE GARDEN: HALF-AND-HALF PASTA SAUCES
RED ROBIN: SPLIT A MILKSHAKE
Famous for bottomless fries and gargantuan burgers, Red Robin doesn't skimp on portion size, and milkshakes are no exception. When you order a milkshake at Red Robin, you essentially get two shakes: one in a glass and another in a metal cup, amounting to about 1,000 calories. If that sounds like too much ice cream, ask for your milkshake in two glasses so you can easily share it with a friend.
