Is it a hack if you’re just putting together two separate items from a menu? Well, according to the internet, the answer is a big YES! As frivolous as the hacks may sound, fans (and former employees!) who have tried these Chick-Fil-A secret menu hacks swear by them and we are here for it.
Many daring individuals have risked their tastebuds and confused innocent drive-thru staff in their attempts to try these hacks. Some were just fortunate enough to be in the right outlet at the right time.
Nevertheless, if you’re one to go wherever Tik-Tok viral videos lead, then these Chick-Fil-A secret menu hacks need to be on your list!
Disclaimer: Not all Chick-Fil-A outlets will entertain customers who request pre-made versions of the hacks. Whether or not customers get secret menu items depends largely on the time and the outlet’s policy. Lunch and dinner rush hours are not ideal times to try these hacks.
1. Grilled Cheese
As awesome as grilled cheese is, it is not an official item on the CFA menu. However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Chick-Fil-A has bread and cheese.
If you’re really craving this cheesy snack you could try your luck by asking the staff if they’d slap one together for you. It’s usually no big deal to grab bread typically used for their sandwich and toast it together with their sliced cheese.
2. Custom Cool Wraps
Ahh…grilled chicken breast with crunchy fresh lettuce and sliced cheese wrapped in flaxseed flour flatbread. What else could you ask for? Apparently – anything!
One of the Chick-Fil-A secret menu hacks is that you can ask to add or substitute anything when it comes to your Cool Wraps. From a piece of breaded spicy grilled chicken to condiments like corn, beans, or tomatoes, you can have it just the way you like it.
3. Grilled Chicken Bagel
Since CFA serves bagels and cream cheese as part of their breakfast menu, some outlets can be persuaded to mix things up if you ask nicely.
Ask for a grilled chicken bagel and they’ll throw in a grilled chicken fillet, Colby jack cheese, and tomato slices. Now that’s a hearty bagel you need to sink your teeth in!
4. Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
Whoever came up with this hack is either a genius or someone with a wicked agenda. We’ll say he’s a genius, though, because the zesty zing from the Buffalo Sauce literally takes this ordinary spicy chicken sandwich to the next level. If you can take the heat, this is a must-try!
5. Wet Nugs
This next Chick-Fil-A secret menu hack tastes way better than it sounds. Essentially, you just ‘wet’ the nugs, A.K.A. nuggets, in buffalo sauce. When we say wet, we mean drench the box like you’re drowning those poor chicken bites in a sea of sauce.
Finally, shake it like your life depends on it. You’ll end up with a juicy mess of spicy chicken nuggets, which is probably the most amazing thing you’ll have in a long time.
Make sure to ask for the grilled nugget’s box if you don’t want spicy sauce spilling onto everything like your car seat or your cat.
6. Breakfast Samples
Only the early birds can vouch for this urban legend because apparently, some Chick-Fil-A outlets give out free breakfast items as samples in the morning.
Several former employees of CFA reported that they tend to surprise paying customers with goodie bags of random breakfast items at the drive-thru. This happens between 10:30 am to about 10:45 am, so set your reminders, guys.
7. Barnyard Biscuit
Speaking of delicious breakfasts, this next hack sounds like something straight out of the farm. That’s probably due to the mesh of different meats and dairy products found in a single biscuit.
The Barnyard Biscuit is the name for a special combination of crispy chicken fillet, warm fresh eggs, cheese, and a savory sausage patty on a buttery biscuit. Otherwise known as the regular chicken, egg, and cheese biscuit with a sausage patty added.
Drink and Dessert Hacks
1. Frosted Drinks
If you’re here for Chick-Fil-A’s famed frosted drinks, we’ve got your back. Many outlets won’t see it as a hassle to turn your drink of choice into a frosted one so you can safely order a Frosted Dr. Pepper or even a Frosted Coffee with Oreos.
However, if you’re faced with outlets that won’t mix it for you, it could be due to sanitary concerns (and rightly so). Not to worry as you can always order the vanilla ice cream and your drink separately and mix it on your own. It’s definitely worth it!
2. Strawberry Lemonade
Perhaps one of the more well-known secret menu items, the strawberry lemonade from Chick-Fil-A can even be ordered by name. This refreshing blend is made of the original lemonade with a scoop of Icedream and some strawberry puree from their strawberry milkshakes
3. Free Ice Cream
Those making a Chick-Fil-A swing without a child in tow would be glad to know that you can enjoy a nice scoop of old-fashioned ice cream on the house. Just order any one of the three available Kid’s Meal and ask for a toy substitution.
While CFA might give another form of dessert instead, most fans have reported receiving the vanilla Icedream and they’re not complaining!
