‘I’m trying this today on my break’: Whataburger worker makes buffalo ranch loaded fries hack — and customers want it on the official menu

'Whataburger should make it a menu item.'

A Whataburger worker filmed himself making an item presently unavailable to order at the food chain: buffalo ranch loaded fries.

The video was uploaded by TikTok user @iamnick556. In the clip, he jumps right into how to make the buffalo ranch loaded fries. He first takes out a couple of pieces of bacon, places them in the fryer, and fries them up. Once the bacon is done cooking, he takes them out while removing the basket of fries after they are done frying.

Then, he dumps out the french fries and adds salt to them. Afterward, he scoops up some fries and places them into a styrofoam container.

With the french fries in tow,  the creator opens a cabinet, grabs a handful of shredded cheese, and sprinkles it onto the fries. He then places the fries underneath a light from the fry station and begins cutting up pieces of crispy chicken breast. The camera shifts to the french fries as he opens the box and scatters bacon bits onto them. Finally, he adds the chicken pieces onto the fries and drizzles both buffalo sauce and ranch on them.

Once the order is finished, the content creator and one of his co-workers dig in.
