Stop Everything: McDonald’s Is Rolling Out All-Day Breakfast in October

Indulging in breakfast for dinner (or “brinner”) isn’t a new trend, but it’s one that most fast food chains have yet to jump on — until now.

Beginning in October, McDonald’s will begin serving an all-day breakfast menu at their restaurant locations nationwide. (No secret menu ordering needed!)

Up until this announcement, customers could only purchase signature breakfast items like the Egg McMuffin, breakfast burrito, and McGriddles breakfast sandwich before 10:30 a.m. during the week and 11 a.m. on the weekends.

The fast food chain began testing the all-day breakfast concept in Nashville and San Diego locations in March. “Serving all-day breakfast is likely the number one request we hear from McDonald’s customers,” McDonald’s said in a statement. “We’re testing it out in a few markets to learn more about this possibility. We know your mouth is watering, but there’s no news on this yet.”

Ever since Taco Bell debuted a breakfast menu last year, McDonald’s has reportedly been feeling the pressure to keep up. And since Taco Bell’s breakfast stops at 11 a.m., day-long offerings would be a step to set Mickey D’s apart from the competition. Plus, it would satisfy the masses with late-night breakfast burritos.

GROSS.

I was just thinking the other day how nice it would be to be able to get an Egg McMuffin during the day. The city I live in has several McDonald’s locations, so even if they only did this at a few of them, it would be great!

Have these people never heard of Jack-In-the-Box? The place where you can get tacos and eggrolls at 3 am, or pancakes and breakfast sandwiches at 9 pm?

LC on

Jack in the Box is not nationwide, unfortunately, and it does not have the same items/flavor/prices that McDonalds does.

Marie on

Yay! Looking forward to it… NOT!

Some nights, I would kill for a McGriddle for dinner. I hope they do this at every location.

Dee on

I hope they start expanding to other states soon. The taste for a egg mcmuffin sometimes hits in the evening too.

I work for a Mcdonalds in Florida, and in my opinion I think it would stink to serve breakfast all day, plus lunch and dinner it would mean extra work, and more appliances,since the appliances are already being used for the lunch and dinner customers,and the appliances have to be set on different temperatures to cook breakfast meat and different temperatures to cook the other meats, so yeah its a really bad idea!!

Man, I’d love this! I’d pass on getting the Big Mac anytime for a couple of breakfast burritos instead. Offering breakfast 24/7 would likely make the work environment even more unpleasant for the employees (thank y’all for everything you do!!), but I’d be dropping by a lot more frequently.

I’d rather have all day lunch

Sweetie on

Yessssssssssssssssss!

AGR on

I would so have a McGriddle for lunch or dinner. They are filling and delicious.

Closing the doors would solve all the problems. They need serious rework here from the top down.

Breakfast all day…lovely…NOT. So they can do hotcakes all day, but when I work 3rd shift and get out of work @ 8am, I and other late night working stiffs r screwed if we want burgers before 11am. What a joke.
