The Chick-Fil-A Secret Menu Item That Uses Lettuce As A Bun

Anyone who's been to a fast food restaurant knows that secret menu are all the rage. When a restaurant has a secret menu, whether official or not, it's fun for customers to find the items and share their favorites within the community. Most secret menu items are rarely advertised to the public, but have been shared by people who have gotten very creative with how they customize their food orders (per Secret Menus).

In-N-Out publishes its "not so secret" menu on its website, but fans have discovered even more secret menu items, like the Scooby Snack, which is intended for dogs. Starbucks' infamous pink drink was originally only available as a secret menu item. After the pretty pink drink blew up on social media apps like TikTok, the company began offering it on the official menu in 2016 (via Medium). While some restaurants will gladly accommodate your secret menu request, other chains require customers to rely on hacks to build themselves the perfect creation. One hack that customers-in-the-know use at McDonald's turns a simple McFlurry into a festive fall treat. Dubbed the apple pie McFlurry, customers should order a vanilla McFlurry with caramel sauce, then order an apple pie. Mix the two and you have a winning combination.

While many secret items make food more indulgent, there is one hack that is great for those looking to lighten up their meal.

Order the Unwich

Chick-Fil-A prides itself on giving its customers the best experience possible. Whether it's through its customer service or freshly made food, the chain always takes the extra step to make each customer happy. While the chain doesn't have an official secret menu, fans have come up with a variety of ways to hack the menu. The chicken sandwich chain is known for its fried chicken sandwiches, but does offer a bevy of lower-carb and more diet-friendly options. If you're not in the mood for a salad, but still want to watch your carb intake, you can order an "Unwich." The Unwich substitutes a lettuce wrap for the bun in any sandwich. If the person taking your order is unfamiliar with the term "Unwich," you can simply ask for a sandwich, no bun.

Low carb and keto aren't the only diets Chick-Fil-A can accommodate. One of the chain's secret menu items is made for vegetarians. According to Business Insider, you can simply order a Chick-Fil-A Deluxe and ask to hold the chicken. You'll be left with cheese, lettuce, and tomato, on a toasted bun. Chick-Fil-A even has a special keto diet-friendly portion of its menu listing out items that are or can be made low carb.
