I thought of this based off of http://the-w.com/t/44523. What do you special order at fast food places?

At McDonald's, I like a double hamburger with red onions, chipotle BBQ sauce, and pickles, nothing else.

Of course the 'ghetto Big Mac' is sometimes ordered, though I live by the WORST McDonald's ever and they have a knack for upcharging like nobody's business.

I also have a penchant for McGangbangs, but that's less special order and more removing the bottom bun of my McChicken.

Sometimes I'll ask for extra ketchup on the bottom bun of a Whopper.

I used to ask at burger places to hold the ketchup on burgers but it was just too much hassle, even at the place where they said I cold have it my way.

In the Wichita area there is a local fast food chain named Spangles. It's a place where they make it when you order it and I will stop there since it's really easy to get what I want. And they are quicker than the Golden Arches, Wendy's or Burger King.

If you really want to drive 'em crazy, ask for fries with out a lot of salt.

When I get a tikka masala I usually ask for some extra sliced tomato and onions thrown in. Same deal with chicken velvet and extra mushrooms.

I'm not a big fan of burgers, but when I do get one it's no bun and extra lettuce, tomato, and onion. "Protein Style" in In-N-Out-speak.

Also out of Wichita is Freddy's, where I always add mayo to the Original Freddy double, which has mustard, pickles, and onions standard.

Other than that, I usually go no lettuce, no tomato. Big Macs are an exception for lettuce.

Removing the bottom bun? Isn't a proper McGangbang made by placing the whole chicken sandwich between the burger patties?

I don't really do special orders, outside of Animal style Double Doubles (and fries well done) at In n' Out.

I have a friend who goes to Taco Bell and orders a bean and cheese burrito, hold the beans and cheese (yes, just a tortilla). She then orders a side order of beans and assembles her own burrito. She swears the side of beans is different from and tastes better than the beans they put in the burrito.

Long-time readers probably already know that on my West Coast pilgrimages, I usually include a Jack in the Box stop where I take time to carefully order my Ultimate Cheeseburger without ketchup and mustard and WITH extra mayo-onion sauce so that I get it as an original Ultimate Cheeseburger.

I don't consider "animal style" especially "custom" at In-N-Out, but I always have my double double that way.

I always ask for extra onions when I get a Taco Bell bean burrito.

A million years ago when I worked at Pizza Hut, I tended to enjoy my pizzas without sauce.

Despite all I say up there, I'm not much of a boat rocker when it comes to my fast food.

Not sure if you consider this a "custom order", but when I get a fast food burger I tell them to hold everything but the cheese (and bacon should it be a bacon cheeseburger).

I didn't know they changed it, cause down here I always have to order a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger with ketchup instead of mayo. Could never figure out why they did mayo instead of ketchup to begin with.

I tend to just go with the flow at most fast food joints other than that, I figure they have enough trouble getting a normal order right, if I mix it up they'll just get confused.

Though last week I did get very specific in telling the McDonalds to for once not shove the horrible giant hollow handle spoon deep into the McFlurry cause it gets ice cream in the handle that later melts on your hand. Stupid, but bugs me.

That's how I've always had one...you use the whole McChicken.

At Taco Bell, I get lava sauce on pretty much everything on the menu.

Oh, where to start...? I'm the customer most fast food people hate to see.

When I order any kind of burger, I request NO lettuce, and tonnes of pickles. As a general rule, I like there being more pickles than anything - aparently at the local McDoinks, extra pickles means one slice. I will request them post extra pickles seven times or so on their till.

Yeah, I like pickles.

I never have salt on my fries. For those who like 'em fresh, it's an easy way to get them hot and right out of the fryer.

The local donair place - they grill the meat after taking it off the spit - I'll request them put it right into the wrap, because the grill will dry the meat out.

I can't really think of anything else, but that's my big thing. Lots of pickles. Lotsa lotsa pickles.

I believe in the wise words of Joe Pesci when it comes to fast food and drive thrus, "they f*** you at the drive thru!!".

That being said, I usually don't make any changes, except here in New Mexico, green chile is essentially the condiment of choice. I'll ask for it on occasion. It really makes a McDonald's or Sonic burger much more tasty.

I find that special orders get messed up more often than not so I just order the stuff that I like as-is.

Having said that, I will request mustard instead of mayo when at Burger King and if it gets forgotten, oh well, it's not the end of the world.

Ditto. I'm a pretty picky eater and most places cant be trusted to remember to leave off what I ask them to leave off, so I usually order based on "which of these items has the LEAST amount of things I want them to change/remove?"

I pretty much go with the standard at fast food joints. Taco Bell is pretty much the only place that I might special order something. Bean and Cheese Burrito with green sauce or a Tostada with green sauce.

I like both items the way they are primarily served. Every now and then I switch it up though. Occasionally add some sour cream!

Haha, I love the Lethal Weapon films. And I've found those words of wisdom to definitely hold true in my case.

I don't do anything particularly elaborate myself, but...

I order McChickens with no lettuce, add cheese.
I order the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich (at McDonald's) with no pickle, add cheese.

In fact, in general: No pickles anywhere near it; no lettuce. If it doesn't have cheese, put cheese on it.

Unfortunately we don’t have the same bewildering array of franchised fast food emporiums available in my country. We do have a Wendy’s, but they mostly serve ice cream and really manky hot dogs.

At one point in time I was requesting the tomato to be removed from my Bacon Double Cheeseburgers Deluxe at Hungry Jacks (Burger King*). But given the ineptitude of these stores to actually provide what I asked for, I quit doing this some time ago. Even ordering straight off the menu I put the reliability at about 75%**. So for many years I removed the tomato manually. More recently in a happy coincidence, I’ve decided that I quite like tomato and I therefore leave it on.

On the wise teachings of Pesci, many of my friends and I, for an extended time frame, did not ever use the drive thru. (One time a Kiwi woman ran into the KFC we were eating at yelling “You forgot my chips! You always forget my chips!” at the manager. If you’re not sure why that is funny, find someone from New Zealand and have them shout that line at you.) Even now we perform a quick physical check of items before exiting the drive thru area.

I kinda think it’s rude to request off menu specializations when going through the drive thru. The drive thru is for people who are in far too much of a hurry to actually park their car and walk the short distance into the store. This should also apply to people paying by card and not cash at the window.

There’s a Danny’s Diner on my corner which is a fairly well known Melbourne institution that caters mainly to the late night reveller. It’s a ‘to order’ place, but their burger with the lot inexplicably does not include cheese, so I have them add it.

I don’t think I’ve ever modified Maccas or KFC off menu. I’ve tried modifying Pizza Hut and Dominos, but there’s no escaping the fact that everything they produce is a total abomination.

* I’m not sure why they decided to call Burger King Hungry Jacks in this part of the world. They first appeared in Perth in 1971 and I remember hearing the reason was that there was already a dodgy suburban fish’n’chip shop in Perth called Burger King, so the franchise owner couldn’t register that name in Western Australia, hence using a different one. I suspect however, that this story may be bollocks. At one point during the late 90’s they were naming all new Burger King stores under the Burger King name, while keeping the old stores named Hungry Jacks, although they later apparently thought “fuck it” and renamed all of the stores back to Hungry Jacks.

** I usually take a 5% unemployment rate to be a “healthy” level. At one point in time I was living in our nation’s capital, when we had the bizarro world unemployment rate of 2.3%. This manifested itself with service staff in boutiques, etc. being the type of people who normally work in cafes, people working in cafes who would normally work in fast food places, and people working in fast food places who normally wouldn’t have a job at all***. And it made getting a bacon and cheese chicken fillet burger a nightmare. On a Friday night, it would take you over half an hour to get your order. There weren’t crazy amounts of people trying to get served either. I mean, there were many people, it was Friday night after all, but not stupid amounts. You could always get a park in the parking lot. It was just a chaos of smug incompetence.

*** Before I get hated at, “people who would normally” is referring to attitude, not aptitude.

My dad visited Australia when I was in high school and HE said somebody told HIM that McDonald's opened in Australia first and when they did, they copyrighted (trademarked?) their own name AND the "Burger King" name just so BK couldnt have it later.

That story always sounded crazy to me and your "dodgy suburban fish’n’chip shop" story sounds more plausible so I'm going with that one.

I'm pretty much the same way. Lotsa pickles, mustard, maybe tomato, and no onions.

I try not to get things I'm picky about at a busy time of day for fast food places. But it really chaps my ass when I go to McDs after I get off work at 2:30am and order a double cheeseburger with extra pickles and mustard ONLY, and I get it with ketchup and onions or however they mess it up.

I have given up. I only order something the way it comes. If I want to take out the tomato, I do it myself. They have beaten me down and I can't make a special order again.
