OAK BROOK, Ill.– McDonald’s recently announced their breakfast menu would become available all day nationwide beginning Oct. 6—but the fine print reveals that may not mean exactly what you think.

According to McDonald’s website “Depending on the local market, All Day Breakfast will have a limited menu that focuses on either McMuffin or Biscuit items.”

The two menu options offer a very limited number of breakfast items– and there will only be one or the other available “based on customer preference.”

If your local McDonald’s is serving the ‘McMuffin’ option, it appears the only sandwiches available will be the Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg and Sausage McMuffin.

If it’s the ‘Biscuit’ option: Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit, Sausage Biscuit with Egg and Sausage Biscuit.

There will also be a handful of sides and hot cakes available with each menu.

Customers have been taking to social media to voice their excitement for the new, all-day breakfast menu–  but come Oct. 6, people may be disappointed when they realize they’re not able to get the McGriddle at noon after all.
