Fast food is already pretty easy. We grab it on the go, or at two in the morning on a drunken Friday night. Either way, humans always look to make something easy even easier. So, why not make take out even more simple? These hacks will heighten your fast food dining experience.
So, let’s dive into the first one. When you order French fries at McDonalds, you usually end up putting the ketchup on top of a napkin. But, actual fry container works as a ketchup holder. Just flip back the top and you have a ketchup tray.
Every time I order Chinese takeout, it’s always such a pain unloading everything onto a plate. By the time I finish the food is cold. Well, did you know that the containers your takeout is served in double as plates? Just dissemble the box and you have a makeshift plate.
The Big Mac special sauce at McDonald's is undoubtedly the yummiest sauce they have. But, did you know you can order it as a condiment? You can order it on top of fries for a delicious fry/sauce concoction.
Don't thank us. Thank Mickey D's. Oh, what the hell, thank us too.
Every time I get Subway, most of the ingredients in my sandwich spill out. You can avoid this by ordering a “V-cut” in your bread. This is actually the way they used to do it back in the day, hence why it is also called an “old cut.” Keep all your ingredients where they belong!
Keep it real with this McDonalds life hack. Most of the time when you order a breakfast sandwich, you’ll get the floppy yellow egg-like thing on the right. But, you can easily avoid this. Just order a “round egg” instead. They’ll make a fresh real egg for you.
Most of the time when you order McDonald’s French fries, they’ve been sitting there all day. These fries are all pre-salted. But, if you order fries without salt, that will force them to make a fresh batch. Just add salt to them on your own afterwards.
This person is a lowkey genius. The journey from the drive-thru to the house usually leads to half of your fries (and all of your significant other’s fries) being gone. It also leads to cold food. Avoid this by cranking up the seat warmer (if you have one) in the passenger seat.
Speaking of keeping things warm, you should do this every time you get delivery. When the food arrives at your door, just pop it in the microwave. This will keep the food warm while you get the dishes out and set everything up.
Subway should probably follow this hack and rethink the design of their takeaway bags. The vertical way the sandwich is placed in the bag makes all the ingredients and dressing slide down to the bottom of the sandwich. Cut a hole in the middle of the bag and hold it sideways.
Who doesn’t love more protein? Instead of asking for two scoops of one protein at Chipotle, as for a mix of chicken and beef. You’ll end up getting more meat, and you’ll end up saving some money while you’re at it. And more meat is what life is all about, amiright?
You may have to wait a bit longer for your food, but it’s totally worth it. Go to any fast food restaurant during the rush lunch hour, and you’re guaranteed to get fresher food. That’s because they’re all making it right there and then, and it hasn’t been sitting around for hours.
This hack only works when McDonald’s has their ice cream machine working. But, in the rare instance when the machine is working, you can get this delicious item off the secret menu. The Apple Pie McFlurry is a combination of their warm apple pie and regular McFlurry ice cream. It’s so delicious.
Every fast food chain overdoes it with the ice. What you end up with is a watered-down drink, and you end up with less drink because they made room for all that ice. Next time you’re ordering an ice coffee and Starbucks ask for “light ice.”
Next time you are at Burger King, avoid beef patties that have been sitting out all day. Instead, ask for an “off-the-broiler” patty. That way the employees will have to make it hot and fresh for you. Now who is the Burger King? It’s you.
