    To follow up on what I mentioned in swervinbob's thread about making burgers at 6 AM, why is it that McDonald's will sell me a limited breakfast menu all day, but I can't buy a burger in the early morning? I don't like most of their breakfast menu, and I could eat a burger at any time.

    Several years ago McDonald's hired a new CEO who was credited for bringing about several innovative and very profitable changes to their menu. One of the biggest and most profitable changes was that all day breakfast. Might the 6 AM burger do the same for their business?

    The breakfasts are basically just heated up. The burgers are built. It would slow things down in the morning to make a burger to order when everything else is just taken off the heat racks.

    Also there are a lot more people who want "breakfast food" at 6pm than want a burger at 6am.

    They refused to sell me a sausage biscuit at 11:02am, telling me that they only served breakfast till 1100am.

    Why would you want one at any time?

    I'm pissed that they stop serving breakfast all day long
    I really liked getting the sausage McMuffin with egg or without egg at 2 in the afternoon

    I agree, there's nuttin on that Breakfast menu from any of them I want...
    But I thought they now sell burgers during the "breakfast" time? I never eat from McDonalds so dont really know, but on a trip this summer I got a burger in the morning, maybe it wasn't McD's..... cant remember. I remember saying to my wife "I wish I could get a burger" and she said "you can"...

    It's because you're trying to buy it with Bitcoin. Getcha a sawbuck and you should be good.

    Right @dsutton24 ?

    I worked short order at a truck stop/diner for a spell opening the joint (5am) the whole menu was available all day and I made more burgers before 8am than breakfast and it wasn't just truckers coming in after a night drive

    McDonalds is the most impressive food service system ever devised on Earth.

    But OP is clearly more informed on the subject than the people in charge.

    Honestly, I could eat a burger in the morning (and I have) but I don't think I could tolerate a fastfood burger of any sort in the morning, unless I had been up all night.

    I like McD's sausage biscuit, and their pancakes are surprisingly good.

    Do we know that to be a fact? Maybe McDonald's does, but I don't. I have spoken to other guys who have said that they would eat a burger and fries in the morning if they could get it. It might increase their profits if the made burgers available.

    There are no diners in Sarasota, FL? A diner will serve you pancakes at midnight and a burger at 5AM. McD has too many secret ingredients for me.
