Shhh! It’s a secret!

Popular cafes, juice bars, and eateries have created secret menus where items listed on it have been ordered from customers in secrecy — until now! The word about these menus is being spread. The secret menu isn’t displayed at any of the restaurants because, well, it’s a secret! It’s all up to the customer to figure out what’s on the secret menu before ordering.

Three locations were chosen to be investigated: Jamba Juice, In-N-Out, and Starbucks.

If one day someone starts to crave a cup of coffee from Starbucks and decides to pick something they’ve heard was on their secret menu, then they just might be disappointed. Truth is, Starbucks doesn’t have an official secret menu. The one people see on the Internet might as well be created from someone who had their cup of coffee customized and just decided to post it up to make it look like they are the master creator of coffee flavors. So if someone were to order something at Starbucks off of the secret menu on the Internet, they really need to know what is in each item so the cashier can fix it up for them.

At Jamba Juice, the situation is quite different. Anyone can just walk right up to the cashier and request an item from their secret menu. If they’re lucky, the cashier might already know most of the items listed on it. In fact, Cooper, a cashier at the Jamba Juice off of West March Lane, said that people order from that menu so often that it really wasn’t so much of a secret anymore.

There are still people out there who don’t know what a secret menu is. Sophomore Juanita Rosas didn’t have a clue that some restaurants offered them. However, when she was informed about secret menus, she said, “They should put them out so people can try new things.”

The cashier at the In-N-Out seemed to be well informed of the restaurant’s secret menu, as well. It’s publicly posted on their website, so anyone could figure out what is on their menu. You don’t even have to know what is on their secret menu before ordering, since the cashiers know what is on there.

Ty Pafford, who teaches English, is very acquainted with In-N-Out’s secret menu. He orders from it frequently because he really enjoys the fact that he can have a burger the way he wants it. He said, “I like the secret menu because it gives you more options to choose from. Every time I order red peppers with my burger, they ask, ‘Are you sure? It’s spicy!’” No strange looks will be given and no double takes should be expected, just a normal, customer-friendly smile.
