McDonald's Worker Reveals The Least Ordered Menu Item

A McDonald's employee has revealed what the least popular item is on their menu is. Find out below:


Now, while some would probably expect the salad to be top of the list when it comes to unpopular dishes, Stephen Stephen Patula says it's the tea.

Yep, Stephen, who works as an area supervisor in Waterford, Ohio, says he hasn't seen a single person buy one since his family bought their franchise in July this year.

In a video posted on his YouTube account, he says: "We bought these stores in July and I have yet to serve one hot tea."

Adding: "I actually didn't even know that we sold hot tea until about a month ago."

However, weirdly, ice tea, Stephen says, is also the most popular item.

Since he posted the video, it has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, with hundreds commenting on the post.

One user, who is also an employee at McDonald's, wrote: "Exactly someone asked for hot tea the other day and I had to ask where it was on the machine bc I had no clue where it was or that we even sold it."

"Welp I know what I'm asking for next time I'm there," joked another.

But this isn't the only nugget of Maccies knowledge staff have shared with the world recently.

Earlier this month, another worker revealed a part of the Drive-Thru process that many people probably wouldn't know about.

TikToker @secretfitzz posted a video recently on the platform, having filmed herself in selfie mode wearing her McDonald's uniform and Drive-Thru headset.

In the clip, she revealed there are some technology employees use to help streamline the orders, including a camera that takes a photo of the driver so they know which order belongs to which car.

She said: "The fact that people don't know we can hear your convos even when we aren't speaking to you taking your order.

"And we have a camera at the speaker that takes a picture of you so we know whose order is whose."

The TikTok user added: "Seeing the mugshots of random people makes my day."

And it seems to be something many other people were completely unaware of, with the video racking up more than 857,000 views and 105,000 likes.

One person jokingly commented: "How can you hear our convos when you don't hardly hear the order."
