I worked at a McDonald's in the 1980s. A complete meal was considered to include sandwich+fries+drink; if a customer's order didn't include all three, we were required to suggest whatever was missing.

See "suggestive selling". While perhaps annoying to some customers who are very certain about what they want, it did increase revenue overall, which is why we had to ask.
