It's like they combined crack and heroin and then converted it into food form.

Fark McD's.

It would be nice if I could stop and get a burger or chicken sandwich in the morning after working a swing shift, but they stubbornly refuse to start that menu until 10:30 AM.

Not everybody works the exact schedule, and sometimes I want lunch for breakfast.

And for those of us not inclined to get out of the house by 10:30am on weekends, it'd be really nice to pop in and get a breakfast sandwich at 11:30 am if we so desired.

The only good things McDonald's has left are on the breakfast menu, IMHO.  Their fries used to be awesome, but something changed about a decade ago...( no more beef fat?)

Um, I'll be able to 3D print my breakfast at home, what's the point?
 
2013-04-28 10:48:17 AM
All a McD "breakfast" is these days is a choice between "McMuffin A" or "McMuffin B", right? They stopped doing stuff like pancakes and sausage eons ago.
 
2013-04-28 10:48:42 AM
McDonald's at Texas A&M University delivered back in the late '90s.  Good for when you floated your keg of Shiner.
 
2013-04-28 10:50:24 AM
Delivery?

Oh... great. Deprive your customers of what little exercise they get. As it is they have to get out of bed, put on their best stretch pants and get to their cars so they can get to the drive thru. (Sure... they're winded... but hey... no pain, no gain.)

What are ya tryin' ta do McDonald's, kill your customers?

a takeout pizza is easy to keep warm. chinese food isn't too hard. a cold sub is no problem. i don't want delivery fries or a burger. and tipping? i couldn't imagine tipping for a lukewarm and soggy bun big mac and cold rubbery fries.

Yes. back in the day, McD's used to offer things like pancakes & sausage (or bacon) and hashbrowns.

They still offer those at my McD's (jacksonville, fl area). Pancakes, pancakes with sausage, pancakes that come as part of the Deluxe big breakfast. They still do hashbrowns and sausage too. I don't think you can just get bacon, but I believe they might have a bacon egg and cheese biscuit.

Yeah, they had the best fries in the fast food industry and then went and changed them and took out the beef fat when vegetarians freaked out and sued them.

Not around here they're not. All we get here is the prior mentioned "McMuffin A" or "McMuffin B".

McDonalds has good breakfasts, but I don't care for much else that they serve. But - they're too late... They've spent so long denying me that I've moved on to someone who fulfills my needs as a fatty.

Jack In The Box is my new breakfast sandwich go-to joint. I alternate between a bacon egg and cheese biscuit or an Ultimate Sausage sandwich (2 sausage patties, egg and cheese on a burger roll).

Yes, I'm a fatty, but I try to restrict myself to only one fast food meal a week. JitB serving breakfast all day (and the fact that it's on my way home from work), gets my business most weeks.

Also - it should be noted that Jack serves REAL orange juice. Or, at least more real than the McD's orange juice flavored water. You get little cartons of Minute Maid - much better.

Where are you located? I've done a lot of traveling in the USA and have never seen a McDonald's that didn't offer the "Big Breakfast".

Didn't they also used to serve a breakfast plate with scrambled eggs with hash browns and a sausage patty? I seem to recall that some time in the distant past.
 
2013-04-28 11:47:29 AM
Not gonna lie, there have been times in the past where I'd have used a Macdonald's delivery service and I'm sure there will be more times in the future.

That's the Big Breakfast, with hotcakes. From their current menu....

Considering how that is where most A&M graduates end up working, it is the least they could do.

Well, I hear that times are tough in North Korea. I just didn't realize they had a McDonald s there.

Breakfast is the only thing they get right since they changed their fries.
 
2013-04-28 12:37:51 PM
Yeah, this is pretty much what I have asked for since 1985, so I'm expecting Kathy Ireland to show up on my doorstep with a lid of great Colombian, a rack of St. Pauli Girl, and the Swedish bikini team any day now to complete the picture.

Indeed, the Sausage McMuffin has been one of my most difficult abandonments.  However, being down 80 pounds since September is pretty awesome, so I have that going for me.

I went to one in the small town in Missouri that I went to college in a few weeks back after midnight because I was hungry and wanted something to eat like a burger or a chicken sandwich.

When I pulled up to the drive thru, they told me that they were only serving breakfast.

This was at 12:10AM...

I don't care about the rest of their breakfast menu, but I'd take the chicken biscuit on the dinner menu.

I mean, it is the same one as their Southern Style Chicken Sandwich?

Now the fall of civilization will begin. With McD's delivering their cracktastic Egg McMuffin, no one will leave their homes anymore. They will stay home and order Quarter Pounders with large fries, forgoing all human contact except the delivery boy. Soon, the population will dwindle due to people choosing McRibs over sex, and the economy will grind to halt after the gold standard is converted to the Big Mac standard. People will be unable to speak nothing more than grunts because the hot apple pies scalded their tongues. Society will crumble like those stale Grimace-shaped cookies that comes with a Happy Meal.

DAMN YOU RONALD MCDONALD! DAMN YOU HELL!

My weakness is a Sausage Biscuit with strawberry jam (they give you a packet of strawberry jam or grape jelly if you ask) right on the sausage patty. I will beat a dolphin to death with a kitten just for one of those.
 
2013-04-28 01:43:41 PM
I'd be more excited about it, but in my experience with the local McDonalds franchises, my order of a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit with a hashbrown patty and cup of coffee would be delivered to me in the form of a Filet O Fish, hour old cold fries and that nasty orange drink.

Do they still have the Chicken biscuit?

Last time I checked around here, they took it off the menu.

And I think it is the same one as their Southern Style Chicken Sandwich. I think they're trying to imitate Chick-Fil-A..

they could do those things to make money.  or they could make better food.
 
2013-04-28 02:06:52 PM
Not sure the delivery is a great idea (if we're honest, who's going to pay a 200% markup plus tip for a $5.00 breakfast? - pizzas barely work out on the numbers, and they're a more expensive product..)
But the all-day breakfast is a flat-out brilliant move. That 10:30 or 11:00 cutoff is off-putting if you like to sleep in, but still want a bacon egg and cheese biscuit occasionally..
 
2013-04-28 02:11:08 PM
Jack in the Box can't be the only fast food chain to serve breakfast 24/7?
 
2013-04-28 02:11:40 PM
Not news.  I've had their breakfast.  It already delivers all day.

2013-04-28 03:08:48 PM
This is dangerous. Currently the only thing I will eat from McDonalds are the McMuffins, but I usually can't get to McDonalds in time to get one, so as a result I never eat any McDonalds. If this becomes possible I will be eating McDonalds all the time, and that's not right.

i was so happy for their spicy chicken sandwich.  they still have best fast food french fries, but i hated alll the burgers on the menu.  i think i have eaten there more times in the past couple of months than in the past 5 years.

not a schill, just don't want the spicy chicken sandwiches to go away...
