Turns out McDonald’s all-day breakfast menu has some serious caveats.
Last week, we reported that starting October 6th, McDonald’s would make everyone’s dreams come true and provide its addictive hash browns and Egg McMuffins all day long.
In a statement released on the McDonald’s website, the fast-food giant explains,
This means that “depending on customer preference” based on location, there will be either a McMuffin or biscuit menu available all-day long—not both. While both menus are set to feature hash browns, hotcake platters, and oatmeal for when you’re feeling healthy, only one menu will exclusively sell biscuits all-day long, while the other will contain McMuffins.
Burger King never lied to me like McDonald’s did. This is why I have trust issues.

After “breakfastarians,” (or those who eat more than one breakfast a day), claimed the golden arches was their favorite place to go for breakfast, McDonald’s made it clear that they saw the economic opportunity involved in extending breakfast hours. It was projected that the transition to the all-day sandwiches could increase annual profits by $31,000.
So why not extend the entire menu?
Unfortunately, this still means that if you’re hoping to cop a McGriddle for lunch in October, you will still have to endure the daily struggle of hitting up the drive-thru before 10:30 am.
