Mouse over to the existing menu bar and right click on it. A menu will pop up and select remove from panel.
Right click on the panel you want the Mint Menu and and select add to panel.
A new window will pop up, scroll down to utilities and select Linux Mint Menu.
Unlike the above poster I do like the Mint Menu, it takes up less space on my panel. Try putting Mint Config on your panel along with your most used applications for easy convenient access and you may use the menu very little.
