Secret Menus

Posted By on Tue, Sep 14, 2010 at 2:01 PM

Perhaps you're already familiar with fast food's secret menu items — Captain D's cracklins or McDonald's Neopolitan shake, for example — but did you know several locally owned restaurants have their own versions?

You can read all about it in the print edition hitting the stands on Wednesday. But in the meantime, we'll offer a few examples as a preview ...

The story, by Stacey Greenberg, includes whole menus, made-to-order options, and off-menu dishes. So many, in fact, that we ran out of space. Below are the leftovers.

Steak and Eggs

Beauty Shop (966 S. Cooper, 272-7111)
Strawberry milkshake
