This article will give you the basics and specific steps to ordering your secret menu item with ease.

1. Chipotle – Quesarito
Straight from Chipotle’s twitter account, it’s been confirmed that the servers will attempt to accommodate your request – which should include the Quesarito. This creation starts off with a Cheese Quesadilla, which is a healthy serving of cheese sandwiched between two burrito shells and placed in the giant warmer. Next, ask to use the freshly prepared Qusadilla as your burrito shell and get all the fixing of a burrito rolled inside of the the Quesadilla. When complete, you have now successfully created the 3,000 calorie behemoth known as the Quesarito. Enjoy each bite as you go through the crispy cheesy shell to reach your favorite meat and burrito fillings!
2. Starbucks – Raspberry Caramel Macchiato
Starbucks is notorious for accommodating customer needs and special recipe orders. For this reason, the Starbucks secret menu is gigantic and you should not blame your barista if they have not heard the drink (its not their job). However, if you come prepared with a recipe in hand they will be more than happy to create an astounding drink like the Raspberry Cheesecake Mocha Frappuccino. To get this drink, ask your barista for: A White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino with extra Raspberry Syrup & topped with Whipped Cream. That is the recipe to this refreshing frappuccino, and I think you will be quite surprised at the extra twist in taste!
3. McDonald’s – Land Sea and Air Burger
McDonald’sis another culprit of Secret Menu items, but with so many franchise locations the servers can often be unaware of the recipe, thus this order may be a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project. In the spirit of nature, the Land Sea and Air burger combines meat from each area of the earth. Representing Land is beef from a Big Mac (or McDouble), from Sea it is the Filet-O-Fish and from the Air we have the McChicken. Just order all three of these items and assemble them as you see fit!
4. Jamba Juice – Strawberry Piña Colada
Here we go, on to the Jamba Juice secret menu with limitless options and flavors. Customers have been successfully ordering off the secret menu for years and have found it incredibly easy.

Among the great secret menu drinks is the Strawberry Piña Colada, to get this just ask for 12 oz. Pineapple Juice, some Coconut, 1 scoop Pineapple Sherbet, 1 Scoop Frozen Yogurt, 1 Scoop frozen Strawberries and Ice.
