These are all the McDonald's hacks to make sure you get fresh food every time

We all love a McDonald's every now and again.

Whether you're hungover or it's just a weekend treat, we absolutely dig into a McDonald's anytime we get one.

Their chips, burgers and nuggets are some of our favourite cheat meals... and now we know how to get them as fresh as possible.

According to The Sun, an McDonald's employee has revealed what you should avoid ordering, as well as how to get the best service.

A crew member from Essex told the publication:

“I would never get anything with ice in it. It’s not the water that is used to make the ice.

“It is the machine. It just isn’t cleaned as often as it should be.”

OK, ew.

If you want your chips to be super fresh, then the trick is to ask for them without salt.

“Order your chips without any salt because then we have to make a fresh batch of fries.

“We also have to clean out the tray that the fries are stored in to make sure no salt gets on them.”

As for burgers and nuggets? Your best bet to get them fresh is to order them when the menu changes - which is 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 5pm and 7pm.

There you have it. All the tips and tricks you need for super fresh McDonald's food.
