Chick-fil-A is adamant that it doesn’t have a secret menu – but the fast food chain recently gave fans a list of suggestions for taking their orders to the next level.
Last week, the chain published an article that explained, "Chick-fil-A does not have a secret menu. No cookie crumble coffee. No chicken quesadillas. No grilled cheese sandwiches. No fried pickles."
Some Chick-fil-A locations do occasionally offer special items such as packets of guacamole and special cheese sauce, the chain said in the article.
Locations in Texas and Arizona even offer jalapeños, while chicken gravy is on offer at 30 locations in West Virginia, Missouri and Kentucky, according to Chick-fil-A.

Plus, fans can customize their orders by adding or removing different ingredients on some menu items.
Aside from those customizations, Chick-fil-A employees aren’t allowed to prepare food that’s not on the menu, the company said.
That doesn’t mean customers can’t make their own dishes using items that already exist on the Chick-fil-A menu.

Below is a list of suggestions from Chick-fil-A on how fans can make their own not-so-secret menu items.
Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese
Chick-fil-A suggests ordering either nuggets or grilled nuggets along with mac & cheese, buffalo sauce and ranch sauce. Then, fans should combine all the ingredients – after chopping up the nuggets – right in the mac & cheese container.
Cookie Icedream Sandwich
To make this dessert, customers should order a cup of Chick-fil-A’s Icedream dessert and two Chocolate Chunk cookies and sandwich the frozen dessert between the cookies.
Icedream Fruit Cup
Another easy menu "hack" is the Icedream Fruit Cup, which can be combined using a side order of fruit and an Icedream cup from the dessert menu.
Chick-fil-A recommends taking its mini chicken rolls to the next level using hash browns. Customers can make this "masterpiece" by dipping a hash brown in their favorite sauce and placing the hash brown in the Chick-n-Mini roll, on top of the chicken bites.
Double Cookie Milkshake
Customers who order a Chick-fil-A Cookies & Cream Milkshake can double their dessert with a Chocolate Chunk Cookie, which then can crumble and mix into their milkshake, Chick-fil-A recommends.
