They ordered the build-your-own kids’ meal and asked for rice, beans, steak and two tortillas.

They also asked for sour cream, corn salsa and mild salsa on the side, though any combination of sides would work.

The kids’ meal also comes with a tiny bag of chips and a drink. Did we mention that’s all for $5?

Some commenters said the hack is totally reliable.

“It’s actually very filling!!!” one user wrote.

“I SURVIVED on this my freshman year of college,” another said.

Other users said it’s not a guaranteed win.

“They have always charged me extra for the sides just so people are aware! I’m sure it depends on your location,” one said.

“I work at chiptole so if y’all are nice and don’t do too much we’ll give u guys the sides for free,” another wrote.

If you’re nervous about trying it out, remember that it’s free and totally reasonable to ask for prices before ordering.
