You can pay less for your favorite meal
Saving big on your favorite Mickey D’s order isn’t rocket science—and we know the best deals. Try ordering a sausage muffin ($1.29) and a side of round egg ($1) to make a cheaper version of the Sausage Egg McMuffin ($3.29). Other menu hacks: A sundae with a McFlurry topping is cheaper than a McFlurry, and ordering any sauce on the side is free of charge.
If you ask for an off-the-menu item, we might not know how to make it. Just tell us exactly what you want; we will whip up almost anything we have the ingredients for. Looking to shake up your usual order? This McDonald's has the best menu in the world.
Know your order before you reach the register
If you’ve been standing in a long line, be ready to order when it's your turn. Your indecisiveness can be a major inconvenience for us—not to mention the other customers waiting behind you in line.
Craving McDonald’s at 2 a.m.? Make sure you have cash on hand. Because the 24-hour locations must restart their cash register systems every night, there is always a certain time period when we can only accept cash.
You can get creative with the sauce
You won’t always love the sauce that comes with your order. But just ask us to substitute another sauce, instead—and don't worry, we won't charge you for it. Just make sure you're not eating at the most expensive McDonald's in the world.
We don't wear gloves -- but it's sanitary
Rest assured that employees are required to wash their hands at least once an hour. Gloves, on the other hand, can harbor a lot more bacteria than our clean fingertips. You'll want to be sure you're not ordering this drink ever, though.
Artisinal sandwiches are the most time-consuming menu items to make
So be prepared to wait a little longer for your order. (The chicken alone takes an average of eight minutes to prepare!) Same goes for Happy Meals; the toy, drink, and dessert take extra time to track down.
Certain people are paid to visit McDonald’s restaurants and rate their experiences online, and they are reimbursed for their purchase. So if a customer asks for a receipt, we are more likely to serve that customer first and give them the freshest food.
This might surprise you, but our burgers are made of high-quality meat. The only ingredients we add are salt and pepper.

According to reports, this is not the first time international items have been introduced to the U.S., although previous introductions have been quite limited. A rotating selection of international items is currently available at the McDonald's headquarters in Chicago's Chicago's West Loop, and the Stroopwafel McFlurry and Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger were tested in Florida last year.
Stroopwafel McFlurry, anyone? Or how about some cheesy bacon fries?
Says Linda VanGosen, McDonald's Vice President of Menu Innovation:
We know our U.S. customers are curious about McDonald's international menu items. Because we are always innovating our menu, we are thrilled to leverage our global scale and offer popular flavors from around the world next month. We are committed to creating everyday feel-good moments for customers no matter what McDonald's restaurant they walk into anywhere in the world.
These new international menu items will make an appearance on June 5th, and will available for only a limited time.
I'm personally happy that McDonald's is starting to spice up its offerings. It's a marketing move meant to shake up the fast-food marketplace, and I suspect it will do just that. I wouldn't be surprised if some of McDonald's competitors start introducing their own international menu items to hungry customers in the U.S.
