McDonald’s announced on Wednesday that they would add the McGriddle, Biscuit, and McMuffin to all of their currently sparse and disappointing all-day breakfast menus — and I’m pumped. To clarify, the McMuffin is already available on the all-day breakfast menu, but in some regions, the biscuit will now be offered instead (fingers crossed that happens where you live).

When McDonald’s first announced they would begin serving breakfast all day long, I was fucking hype. Nothing cures a hangover like a McGriddle or a sausage biscuit paired with a large cup o’ joe. But when I rolled out of bed at noon and drove to the nearest golden arches, my dreams were crushed. They stop serving the full breakfast menu at 10, and the only 24/7 breakfast menu items available were the shittiest options. The sausage burrito which just tastes like salt (no one goes to Mickey D’s for fake Mexican. That’s Taco Bell’s job. I don’t know why they even try). The McMuffins that sandwich the sausage and cheese between two hard, flavorless, cardboard-y english muffins. And the pancakes that suck so bad they can’t call them pancakes, they have to call them “hot cakes” instead.
Gone was the flaky, buttery biscuit. Gone was the sweet and savory McGriddle. I was mainly pissed they didn’t have the McGriddle. Other fast food joints do biscuits better: Popeye’s, Whataburger, and Bojangles, to name a few. But no one else has anything like the McGriddle, a truly unique, maple-infused, mouth-watering stack of breakfast orgasm. I’m not getting in that drive-thru line before 10, and without the McGriddle, the all-day breakfast menu was just a tease. I’m glad McDonald’s has righted their wrongs.
P.S.: 24/7 means you’ll now be able to eat a McGriddle when you’re hammered late at night. Which is great news.
P.P.S.: It’s not on the menu, but you can ask for a secret CHICKEN McGriddle instead of the standard bacon or sausage options, if that’s more your style..
