    America rejoiced last week when McDonald’s announced that it would finally be serving breakfast all day at every one of its more than 14,000 restaurants across the country.

    Alas, the news was too good to be true and comes with a catch.

    According to Business Insider, the all-day breakfast menu will be skimpy, and many will find that their favorite breakfast items won’t be available after 10:30 a.m.

    Per Business Insider:

    So why the limited menu?

    According to previous statements from McDonald’s, it comes down to how much space is available on the grill.

    This video from last year explains the space crunch caused by breakfast:

    Yeah, our local morning news did a story about this this morning. But, I don't care, the ONLY thing I ever get from McD's is the sausage biscuit with cheese. :dance:

    This is overly complicated, which is the worst thing possible when it comes to fast food. McDonalds just can't make a good business decision these days.

    Actually, yeah, it is. :oops: Plus, it involves more than just the grill. They would also have to add another hood with proper ventilation, etc.
    :eek: Ewww....you mean those oil-soaked sponges they put in those little paper sacks??

    I'm happy that I'm not affected by anything MacDonald's does, or doesn't do.

    Yeah, truthfully, it doesn't really affect me, either. Even though the sausage biscuit is literally the only thing I would eat from there, I can count on one hand how many times I've been to McDonald's in the past 25 years.

    Well, other than for drinks. You can't beat any size for $1. Large unsweetened iced tea for the win! :yes:
