NEW YORK (PIX11) -- By now you’ve probably heard McDonald’s has been holding out on all of us.

The rumors of a secret menu apparently are true, that’s according to a manager from a Scotland-based McDonald’s who spilled the beans during a Reddit AMA.
The catch however, the menu was not necessarily invented by anyone at the fast-food restaurant.

According to him, it’s just “a random persons guide to burgers you could potentially hack at McDonald’s.”

There’s even a website called #HackTheMenu that guides you on the so-called hack.

Now what this McDonald’s manager claims, some staffers are fully aware of these special orders or as they are called “grill orders.” But most – especially in the U.S. - will turn you away.

The most popular grill orders include the Land, Sea and Air Burger, which is a beef patty, Filet O’Fish and McChicken patty, the Monster Mac which is a regular Big Mac with eight patties and the crème de la crème – the Big McChicken: two beef patties sandwiched between two McChicken patties.

PIX11 paid a visit to a McDonald’s on 2nd Avenue and E. 39th Street in Murray Hill to see if they would honor our “secret menu” order. If you’re wondering, they delivered.

A spokesperson for McDonalds stressed in a statement to PIX11 News, "There is no secret menu."

“We know our customers are really creative and they tell us all the time that they enjoy customizing our menu," the statement read.

The bottom line – McDonald’s charges patrons for the add-on's and its pretty much an a la carte type of deal.

Just be ready to pay up.

Three sandwiches PIX11 purchased during our recent visit - Land, Sea and Air Burger, Monster Mac and Big McChicken – totaled $24.
