But as fast-food chains tend to go, there are always hidden gems on the menu – and hacks on how to get the best out of your cheap n’ cheerful feed. Sure, your old faithful orders are always a good time. But if you’re interested in trying something different, read along.
I was lucky enough to be treated with the thoughts of a handful of Guzman y Gomez (GYG) employees on best ordering practices. They gave Lifehacker Australia their opinions on what you really should grab the next time you eat at one of the fast-food chains.
Here’s what Guzman Y Gomez staff order most:
Steven Marks, the Founder and CEO of GYG shared that his go-to order is:
“Mini Spicy Ground Beef Nachos and make it a meal with fries and a drink!”
Kate Rix of the GYG Customer Service Team’s absolute fave is:
“Mild Chicken Nachos. Add sour cream, no beans and make it a meal.”
Dom, one of the Crew People at GYG shared that his fave order is:
“Spicy Pulled Beef Burrito Bowl. Add guac and jalapenos and make it a meal with Jarritos Cola.”
Felipe Rodriguez, an IT Support Analyst with GYG goes for:
“Mild Chicken Enchilada, add veggies, add chipotle mayo.”
And Tiz Start, GYG’s National Corporate Operations Manager recommends you order:
“Mild chicken Soft Shell Tacos, add chipotle mayo and always make it a meal!”
The Guzman y Gomez team also shared a selection of forgotten menu items that you may not know about (I definitely didn’t).
Most notably, these guys have a breakfast menu that not many people forget to take advantage of. You can grab churro toast, a brekkie burrito or a hash brown (tell me churro toast doesn’t sound like a dream). You can also get a mix of breakfast bites for under $10.
The restaurants are also vegan-friendly, so plant-based folks can feel comfortable ordering away, too.
Is anyone else feeling hungry now?
