The Original Menu Of Your Favorite Fast Food Chains Will Make You Seriously Hungry

If there’s anything we all have in common, it’s our love for fast food.

Even the faint smell of our favorite fast food chain takes us down memory lane.

Before these menus consisted of dozens of options, they were simple in design and cheaper than you could ever imagine. If you grew up in that era, you probably miss that authentic fast food experience.

Here are 10 photos of the original menus of some of the most popular fast food chains in the U.S. The prices will shock you!

What a classic. The menu only consisted of less than a dozen items, which included burgers, fries, shakes, and other popular beverages. It wasn’t until the late ’60s that the Big Mac was introduced nationwide, and a decade later the Happy Meal made its debut, and a few years after that there was the Chicken McNugget.

Imagine walking into a McDonald’s and paying 15 cents for a beef burger.

I don’t know what looks better, the food or the prices. The first A&W drive-in restaurant opened in the 1920s in California and featured a long list of sandwiches and drinks.

The man responsible for the Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices in the ’40s started off with a simple menu. The menu above is most likely from the 1960s, the time when the fast food chain added buckets full of fried chicken. It’s nice to see not much has changed, and the things that have changed have made the food at KFC even better.

This isn’t Wendy’s first menu when it opened in 1969, but it was one of the most loved menus at the time. The fast food chain was the first to launch a 99 cent value menu in 1989, until Burger King and McDonald’s followed suit.

The menus of these next ones will make you hungry!

Khloe Kardashian Reveals What’s On Her Thanksgiving Menu This Year

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and as we prepare the decor for our house, think about what we are going to make and go out and do the shopping, we can’t help but get excited.

Khloe Kardashian is giving her fans some inspiration for this holiday by revealing what is on the menu at her house this year.

“Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? I am and I feel like I’ve been planning this out since last November, LOL,” she wrote.


The avid cook and kitchen organizer is in charge of the Thanksgiving menu and you can bet everyone should be excited.

While she had a great lineup of dishes last year, she was worried about one thing in particular. On her menu last year, she revealed that she was nervous about making the stuffing.

“I’ve never made stuffing before but someone asked about it, which means now I have to make it!” the reality star wrote in an entry on her website titled “What I’m Afraid to Cook.” She continues: “I just don’t really get stuffing. I mean why would I eat wet, stale bread? LOL. All of the recipes I Googled have bacon in them though so, since I don’t eat pork, I’m going to have to do some tweaks. So I don’t know how it’s going to turn out!”

So what does she have planned for this year?

Dunkin’ Donuts Is Cutting 50% Of Its Menu

Donut lovers, don’t freak out, but one of our favorite coffee chains is seriously scaling back its donut selection and we are heartbroken.

In August the coffee giant was toying with the idea of changing its name.

They have been considering going from Dunkin’ Donuts to just Dunkin’, testing out the new branding in some stores.

“While we remain the number one retailer of donuts in the country, as part of our efforts to reinforce that Dunkin’ Donuts is a beverage-led brand and coffee leader, we will be testing signage in a few locations that refer to the brand simply as ‘Dunkin’,” the company told CNBC.

So it should come as no surprise their most recent announcement affects the donuts on their menu.

“We’ve shrunk the amount of doughnut variety, and we’re seeing a lift in those markets instantly,” Dunkin’ Donuts’ U.S. and Canada brand president David Hoffmann told Nations’s Restaurant News.

The decision to reduce the menu size from 30 flavors to 18 was made for the company to streamline its offerings.

From Boston cream, to jelly-filled and chocolate sprinkles, did your favorite ones get the cut?
