7 Items From Taco Bell's Amazing Secret Menu

If you're a Taco Bell loyalist, then you automatically have something in common with Chrissy Teigen. Which is why when we reached out to the chain to find out its top secret menu orders, we felt in our heart of hearts that Teigen would undoubtedly approve. Because if we've learned anything from Taco Bell AND the fast food-loving celeb, it's that there's always room for a little extra: be it cheese, crunch, sauce, fast food in general, what have you.
Although these off-the-menu items from the beloved chain may not be all that classified at this point, we were still elated to be let in on the proper ordering lingo. For example: Did you know you could "DLT" anything? Or that "Lava" lives on? We didn't. And if you're not so sure what DLT and Lava mean, you'll want to click on and find out. We promise that Doritos and spicy cheese sauce are involved.

So next time you find yourself at the big Bell, you can order tacos "fresco style" while winking at the drive-thru window attendant (because you're both in on the secret).

2. “Fresco Style”
For a vegan-friendly order, just ask for it "fresco style"; they'll remove the cheese, sour cream, and meat.

3. "Double Grilled Quesadilla OR Burrito"
One of the most sought-after menu hacks at Taco Bell is the DGQ (or DGB). It's just your average quesadilla/burrito only extra, extra crispy by way of added grilling time.

5. "Make Your Own Lava" (Spicy Cheese Sauce)
Even though TB's infamous Lava sauce has been discontinued, you can still make your own! Just add a side of nacho cheese to your order, mix that cheese with 2-3 packets of the fire sauce, and voilà: lava-fy your food.
