Whataburger fans can get excited about a new menu item that isn't really new, but you had to be the know to actually order it in the past.

Whataburger has announced that chili cheese fries are now available on the regular menu, just in time for cooler temperatures. Whataburger must be in a chili-style mood because stores across the state just added a chili cheeseburger to the menu.

An order of chili cheese fries comes with crispy fries loaded with beef chili and a mix of jack and cheddar cheese. And if you were wondering, there are .no beans in the Whataburger chili cheese fries according to the Houston Chronicle.

You may be surprised to lean that many fast food places have secret menus. According to the Houston Chronicle, another Whataburger secret is chicken and pancakes instead of chicken and waffles.

Nearly all fast food joints offer secret menu items, many of which were invented by customers then adopted by the restaurants. For example, McDonald’s offers the secret Land, Sea and Air, a gargantuan sandwich stuffed with a Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and a McChicken. Or In ‘N Out has the secret Animal Style burger, with pickles, grilled onions and mustard fried into the patty.

Other secret items at Whataburger include chicken and pancakes, a play on the favorite Southern dish of chicken and waffles, the Whatahash burger, a hamburger smothered in hashbrowns, and The Hulk, a combination of Powerade and Vault Soda, according to the website Hack the Menu.

I'm going to have to try the chicken and pancakes at some point.
