McDonald's employees know more about the company's food than anyone. After all, they spend all day cooking, handling and serving the stuff. They subsequently have a pretty good idea of which menu items are great and which are best avoided.

This infographic from Fairmont Hotels breaks down everything you need to know about seven popular burrito styles - from their storied history to the ingredients you need to make your own.
There are few things KFC customers love more than Hot & Spicy chicken - and the Colonel is finally beginning to capitalise on this fact. This year, the company launched its first offshoot product in the form of Hot & Spicy Chicken Nuggets. Now, its infusing that famous fiery flavour into its popcorn chicken range. At least, that's the idea in theory. Read on for our taste verdict.
Roy Morgan Research has released its figures for Australian takeaway consumption in 2018. The report includes the average number of takeaway visits per month and the ten most popular chains in the country. While the featured restaurants aren't surprising, the ordering did cause us to raise an eyebrow. Domino's Pizza and Subway aren't as popular as you might think.
"Does KFC home deliver?" "Does McDonald's home deliver?" "Do Subway home deliver?"
Admit it: you've probably asked yourself one of the above questions while lounging at home on a Saturday night. We all have. Sometimes you get a craving for a specific fast food but lack the energy/wherewithal/sobriety to get in your car and head to the drive-thru. The good news is that a lot of Australia's favourite fast food restaurants will deliver straight to your doorstep - they just don't heavily advertise it.
Have you ever noticed how McDonald's Chicken Mcnuggets come in a handful of suspiciously similar shapes? (The one with the protruding nubbin in every pack is usually the giveaway.) Turns out there are four distinct forms of McNugget: the bell, the ball, the boot and the bow tie/bone. Here's how they are made.
The KFC Zinger Double Down King is an "all meat" burger comprising cheese, bacon and a beef patty sandwiched between two KFC breast fillets. In other words, it takes the OTT concept of the KFC Double and elevates it to ludicrous proportions.
Tragically, the Double Down King isn't available in Australia, but don't let that stop you from sampling its colon-clogging delights - as the following taste test demonstrates, it's possible to build your own. The results are spectacular... and probably a bit lethal.
Mad Mex is going full vegan, with dairy- and lactose-free cheese now available at all Australian restaurants. (Best of all, it's currently free to add to any menu product.)
Mad Mex swears on the eyes of orphan children that its new product looks like real cheese, tastes like real cheese and melts like real cheese. We conducted a blind taste test to uncover the truth.
McDonald's employees know their food inside and out - including products they personally avoid like the plague. They are also trained to help every type of customer reach a purchasing decision. Here are five of their best ordering tips - for frugal, fussy and indecisive eaters.
The McDonald's McGold Card is a food-redemption ticket that provides the owner with free, unlimited McDonald's for life. The existence of the card gained international attention after actor Rob Lowe flashed his on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2015. Since then, it has been revealed that a range of VIPs and celebrities have their own version of the card - from Bill Gates to Warren Buffett. So how do 'normal' people go about getting one? Here are the details.
I'm currently in the US for a business event. One of the things I've never done, but is practically a tradition for many of my friends when they're here, is to eat at In-and-Out Burger. So, I'm wondering what all the fuss is about. Is In-N-Out Burger that good? Or are the burgers overrated? I visited an In-N-Out Burger joint on the Las Vegas strip to find out.
Outside of ordering chicken nuggs for potential Lifehacker articles, I wasn't a big fan of McDonald's "mymacca's" app. It was clunky and constantly kicked me out - not things I was all that happy with when you're trying to order fast food. But now, Maccas has overhauled the app! So how is it?
Most leading fast food franchises are available in multiple countries around the world. However, the menu options can vary wildly depending on the tastes, culture and customs of locals.

If you're a fast food fanatic, consider this your bucket list!
A McDonald's customer in Sydney has been questioned by police after failing to return the wrong takeaway order.
