Ever wondered what really goes on behind the scenes at your favorite fast-food restaurants?
Reddit has some answers, including which chain serves only frozen food, the menu items offering the worst bang for your buck and some tales of sanitation practices that won't exactly have you racing to the drive-thru for your next meal.
Is there a little exaggeration going on here? Is their intel up-to-date? We can't say for sure, but we're not volunteering to verify.
"At our Subway, the 'oven roasted' chicken was actually boiled in a microwave." — Hotpotabo
"All Starbucks food is reheated frozen food... doesn't mean it doesn't taste good, it's just not fresh at all and incredibly overpriced." — likeabaker
"I used to work at Chipotle, and never ever ever order the tacos. You get less than half the regular portion. Instead, order a bowl with whatever you want in it, then ask for the taco shells, hard or soft, on the side." — KourageWolf
"Currently a service manager at Chipotle. All peppers, lettuce, and tomatoes now come pre-shredded and washed. Steak also now is pre-cooked." — soflopaintball
"I used to work at 7-Eleven, so I'm gonna say any of the taquitos or hotdogs around midnight, up through about 4 or 5 a.m... that hot dog might have more miles on it than your car." — novelty_bone
"I work at Buffalo Wild Wings. Don't get anything other than the wings. That's the only quality thing there. Everything else is frozen sh*t." — HunterOfTheSky
"Salads from DQ are a rip off. They just recently down-sized them while changing the bowl to make it look like the same amount. Over $5 for 3 oz. of old lettuce, cabbage, carrots and even older grilled chicken." — obeyyourbrain
"If you're trying to order a healthy option [at Jimmy John's], don't order the Gourmet Veggie Club. It's the second most caloric sandwich behind something called the 'Gargantuan.' 8 slices of provolone cheese will do that." — lolutah
"Anything off of the 'hidden menu' [other than at In-N-Out]. Most people working don't know how to make it." — rps_killerwhale
"Tuna sandwiches. 80% mayonnaise." — karma_virus
"Worked at Carls Jr. (or Hardee's for you east coast peeps). Chicken tenders. We were supposed to throw them out after 20 minutes. We were told not to do that. We would sometimes serve 1-2 hour old chicken tenders." — i_Ryan
"I used to work at Del Taco. Just don't order anything from us. Jesus...I can still hear their screams when I close my eyes." — FATBIRD333
"Small pizzas. They're such a pain to make right...on top of that, it's a huge waste of your money." — SirwigglesIII
"Ex Sonic employee here: Don't order steak or grilled chicken...EVER." — AntProtein
"Don't get the chili [at Sonic]. It comes in a bag, gets warmed up in a metal tub and then sits for 10 hours until we run out and replace it." — AntProtein
"I worked at Sonic for a bit, and our managers told us not to wear gloves to save money, unless corporate or the health inspector was around...most fried foods were fine, like chicken tenders or French fries. Burgers or sandwiches probably had my hands all over them." — TheFlyingBeagle
"Chick-Fil-A. Don't order grilled foods if you're gluten free. While technically gluten free - a lot of cross contamination can occur." — SwagSorcerer
"Just never go to Red Lobster, ever, trust an ex-kitchen worker." — ptown11
"BK just started serving hot dogs not too long ago. They're put in the broiler just long enough to have grill makrs, then we toss them in the microwave. So that. Avoid that." — runningwithrum
