Anyone who lives in Australia knows never to call McDonald's by its real name—it was one of the first things I learned when I came here to study abroad. "Macca's" serves all the fast food favorites I've gotten used to in the States, but with an Aussie twist.

All you have to do is step up to a touch screen, place your order, pay and wait for your number to be called. Then it's time to enjoy these 10 down under treats that makes Macca's better than McDonald's.  

1. The Wi-Fi

Most McDonald's worldwide offer free Wi-Fi when you dine in, but Australian McDonald's offers free Wi-Fry. Would you like a milkshake with those fries?

2. The Triple Cheeseburger

There's no dollar menu in Australian McDonald's (*sheds tears*). However, they make up for it with the triple cheeseburger: three patties and three slices of cheese stuffed in a bun. Yum.

3. McCafe

McCafe actually started in Melbourne, VIC in 1993. McCafe isn't another name for the line of drink options they sell, it's an actual cafe. In the café, you can buy any of your standard coffee drinks, just like you would at Starbucks.

4. Dessert

Finished with your burger and fries, but still craving more from Macca's? Forget about apple pie and McFlurry's—here you can indulge in macaroons, carrot cake, double chocolate cakes, raspberry cheesecake, cookies and cream cheesecake, a caramel kiss and more.

5. Angus BBQ Burger

What makes the Angus BBQ burger so special? Rasher bacon, BBQ sauce, and beet root. Forget asking for a cheeseburger, this is the go-to burger at Macca's.

6. Southwest BLT Burger

This burger is a local favorite. You get an Aussie chicken burger with crunchy tortilla chips, Southwest ranch sauce, sizzling bacon, cheddar cheese, fresh lettuce, tomato. McChicken, who? 

7. Frozen Coke

Plain coke with ice is a thing of the past. Order a frozen coke to cool off in the summer heat. You can even add ice cream to make it a frozen coke float.

8. Gravy Loaded Fries

Forget plain fries, gravy fries are where it's at. Rich and flavorful, they'll make you wonder how you survived without them for so long. If gravy fries aren't enough, check out the sweet chilli and sour cream fries—another Aussie staple.

9. Chicken McBites

Macca's still serves chicken nuggets in the 5, 10, and 20 piece variety, but the McBites are an even better snack to take on the go. Dip them in BBQ or Sweet & Sour Sauce for the perfect combo.

No matter where you are in the world, McDonald's gives you plenty of quick and easy options. Whether you're drunk, sober or high, Macca's will satisfy any craving you have. Just don't be the guy who steals the McFlurry topping dispenser
