At McDonald’s, It’s Hotcakes for Lunch and an Egg McMuffin for Dinner

mcdonalds-Sausage-McMuffin-with-EggHave you ever shown up at a McDonald’s at about 11 a.m. with a hankering for a sausage burrito and being told you’re too late for that eye-opener?

No more.

Starting Tuesday, McDonald’s is serving breakfast all day long.

That’s right, you can have an Egg McMuffin sandwich, hotcakes platters and sides, such as fruit and yogurt, all day long.

The availability of hash browns varies by location, so if that means as much to you as a cup of fresh decaf or a stack of hotcakes with sausage, then do your homework and call first.

mcdonald's hotcakes“We are thrilled that our San Antonio customers can now experience McDonald’s breakfast any time of the day,” said Jesse Guajardo, a McDonald’s franchise owner. “Our all-day breakfast menu includes a combination of iconic sandwiches, like the Egg McMuffin, and wholesome choices, such as Fruit & Maple Oatmeal. We are truly excited to give our customers what they have been asking for for so long.”

This move should be a big winner for McDonald’s. More than 120,000 people tweeted the fast-food restaurant in the past year alone asking for all-day breakfast, according a press release from the local McDonald’s franchises.

Getting Into the Spirit of the Season

The spirit of the season is upon us, and a number of restaurants are responding with Toys for Tots drives and other charitable collections.

The folks at McDonald’s heeded the call before Thanksgiving.

In response to an emergency request from Haven for Hope, the Greater San Antonio Area McDonald’s co-op recently donated 500 blankets to the many homeless the organization cares for.

But they’re not finished. The donation is only half of the amount that the local owner/operators will be donating to Haven for Hope. The remaining 500 blankets will be donated this month.
