As the old slogan of Mcdonald’s used to say, “a visit to McDonald’s makes your day!”. What it didn’t cover was when McDonald’s comes to you! With a range of options to get your hands on a McDonald’s, ordering has never been easier. Now you can enjoy a McDonald’s delivered fresh to your door! Today we are going to take a look at the McDonald’s catering menu. We will show you what you can do, what services they offer, and take a detailed tour of the menu and prices. Happy meals at the ready? Let’s go!
Does McDonald’s have a Party Platter?
Ok full disclosure here. No, McDonald’s does not have a party platter. If you have ever been to McDonald’s or even gone to a drive-through, you will have seen how busy they normally are. Oh, and there is something else too. McDonald’s signature taste is often achieved using some special equipment.
Think about it.
How could they possibly have a bigmac ready in the blink of an eye without it? While you are stood at the counter, take a look behind the scenes, and you’ll see a whole manner of different cooking equipment. This stuff tends not to travel well.
You might be wondering why they can’t just ship their platters out to your party? Well, here’s the thing about McDonald’s food. It tastes much better hot! Cold McDonald’s? No thanks… (Apart from McFlurry’s, they are our favorite).
Do you want the good news?
While you can’t get a McDonald’s party platter, if you are smart about what you order and when you order it, you could still use them to cater your party. So, it is kind of like a McDonald’s Catering Menu. And, after all, if Donald Trump did it for a Whitehouse dinner, then so can you!
The easiest way to get McDonald’s catering is to call them in advance and warn them that you will be placing a large order. So in a way, yes, you can get McDonald’s catering, just not as a formally arranged deal.
Can McDonald’s Cater a Wedding?
The good news is that McDonald’s has catered weddings?
The bad news?
This was a rare occurrence.
McDonald’s doesn’t normally list wedding catering as one of the services it provides. The exception is Hong Kong, where it is possible to book McDonald’s to provide catering for your wedding… It seems a long way to go for a McDonald’s.
Oh, and before we forget to mention…
To get McDonald’s to cater your wedding (even in Hing Kong), you must hold the reception within their restaurant. This isn’t exactly our idea of a ‘fairytale’ wedding.
What is on the McDonalds Menu?
For those who have been living under a rock for the last 50 years, McDonald’s started its life selling nothing but hamburgers. They also developed processes that allowed these hamburgers to be served quickly.
Well, what works for hamburgers works for other things too. Before you knew it, McDonald’s was cranking out other delicious fast food such as Chicken McNuggets, Fillet O’ Fish, and even wraps and salads.
As to what’s on the menu currently, well check below: –
McDonald’s Menu Items
- Big Mac
- Quarter Pounder with Cheese
- Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese
- Triple Cheeseburger
- Double Cheeseburger
- Bacon Double Cheeseburger
- Chicken Legend with Cool Mayo
- Chicken Legend with BBQ Sauce
- Chicken Legend with Hot & Spicy Mayo
- McChicken Sandwich
- Mayo Chicken
- Bacon Mayo Chicken
- Vegetable Deluxe
All of the below should be no stranger to you. The Big Mac is McDonald’s flagship burger. This is two beef patties sandwiched between not two but three sections of the soft burger bun. It is topped with McDonald’s signature Big Mac sauce.
If the big mac is too much for you (or you get super annoyed with the middle sliding out, how does that happen?) Then there are other alternatives. A quarter pounder with cheese is just as tasty! The McChicken has always been a firm favorite for chicken lovers, and occasionally you’ll meet someone who loves a Fillet O’ Fish.
We can never work out if we get more fries when we order large from the McDonald’s catering menu? Sure, the box is taller, but then more fries end up falling out of the front. McDonald changed their recipe over 15 years ago as it used to be fried in beef fat. Now they are cooked in vegetable oil!
- Chicken Selects
- Chicken McNuggets
- Chicken McNuggets share box
Want to share your nuggets? Not likely! We only get six! Nope, not true! In fact, you can get 9 nuggets, or recently, McDonald’s has introduced the share box which features… Wait for it… 20!
- Grilled Chicken Salad
- Grilled Chicken & Bacon Salad
- Crispy Chicken Salad
- Crispy Chicken & Bacon Salad
- Side Salad
Depending on where you are located, these might not be available. McDonald’s cut salads from their menus in certain areas. It’s a shame, as they were super tasty!
- The Spicy Veggie One
- The Fajita Chicken One
- The Garlic Mayo Chicken One
- The Sweet Chilli Chicken One
- The BBQ Chicken & Bacon One
While you might not associate McDonald’s with wraps, they are actually really good. Our favorite is the garlic mayo chicken one!
McDonald’s Vegetarian Options
- Happy Meal Veggie Dippers
- Happy Meal Veggie Wrap
- Veggie Dippers
- The Spicy Veggie One
- Vegetable Deluxe
- McDonald’s Fries
- Side Salad
Vegetarians don’t need to feel left out when ordering from the McDonald’s catering menu! There’s plenty of choices. We’d even argue that the veggie deluxe is better than a big mac… Or maybe not?
- Breakfast Roll
- Breakfast Wrap
- Cheesy Bacon Flatbread
- Sausage & Egg McMuffin
- Bacon & Egg McMuffin
- Double Sausage & Egg McMuffin
- Double Bacon & Egg McMuffin
- Sausage, Egg & Cheese Bagel
- Egg & Cheese McMuffin
- Toasted Muffin with Jam
- Pancakes & Syrup
- Pancakes & Sausage with Syrup
- Bacon Roll
- Quaker Oats Simple Porridge
- Bagel – various
- Hash Brown
We’ve all been there, rushing to get our order in before 10.30am, which is when McDonald’s switches from their breakfast menu to their afternoon McDonald’s catering menu. While they have tried to make the breakfasts more healthy, we still find that we end up drifting back to the good old sausage and egg McMuffin!
- Oreo McFlurry
- Maltesers McFlurry
- Smarties McFlurry
- Mini McFlurry (various)
- Promotional McFlurry
- Ice Cream Cone
- Ice Cream Cone with Flake
- Chocolatey Donut
- Blueberry Muffin
- Chocolate Muffin
- Triple Chocolate Cookie
- Sugar Donut
- Hot Apple Pie
- Apple fruit bag
When the machine is working, Mcflurry has to be one of our all-time favorite desserts. Oh, and don’t forget their iconic apple pie!
- Chocolate Milkshake
- Strawberry Milkshake
- Banana Milkshake
- Vanilla Milkshake
What’s a burger without a nice thick shake? It got even harder to drink now that McDonald’s has started using paper straws! The trick is to keep hold of the cup. The heat from your hand will melt the shake to just the right consistency.

McDonald’s is Really Consistent
Whether you are having a wedding in Hong Kong or watching the Superbowl in New York, one thing is 100% certain. If you order a Big Mac, they are going to taste absolutely identical. McDonald’s food is its brand, and therefore each and every burger is made in exactly the same way.

How Can I Order from the McDonald’s Catering Menu?
Here’s our step by step guide on how you can order from McDonalds.
Ok, while McDonald’s doesn’t have a catering menu as such. This isn’t going to prevent you from ordering catering, even for a large party. Here’s how to do it in a step-by-step guide: –
- Take a piece of paper, print out the above menu, and get your guests to place a check next to their preferred choice.
- Call ahead to your local McDonald’s and ask them if they can accept a large order. We recommend doing this up to three hours in advance to give them time to prepare and cook your food (nobody wants hungry guests!)
- Check the prices on the McDonald’s menu above to avoid a big bill.
- Place your order and arrange for delivery. Alternatively, take a friend and drive to your local McDonald’s to pick up and pay for your order.
- Race home and feed your guests!
It really is that simple!
McDonald’s might not formally offer catering services, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them as a sort of impromptu McDonald’s catering menu! Just be sure to check the prices and notify them in advance. Good luck getting through the door when you get back from picking up the order. What is your favorite from the McDonald’s menu? For us, it’s got to be McNuggets! BBQ dip, please! What’s the biggest order you’ve ever placed at McDonald’s? Let us know in the comments!
