McDonald's McSkillet Burrito

Anybody try this yet? I'm not a fan of their "food", but I like a breakfast burrito on occasion.



Yeah I know it's bad for you blah blah blah, so hopefully we can save the predictable heart attack/clogged artery witticisms.

I quit eating most McDonalds last summer due to health problems, but until I found out I was lactose intollerant, I would still have a breakfast burrito every couple weeks.

I went back a few months ago for one, but they gave me shit about asking for it without cheese, so I just walked off.

Its not good. So many better places to have a breakfast burrito. It really just tastes the same as the small ones.

I had a dollar off coupon so I tried one today... the initial bite reminded me of a microwaved burrito. I give it a solid "meh."

We have a local joint (Anita's) that does really good breakfast burritos

I have had the MCD Mcskillet and it is ok when choices are limited, but not really great. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but I did have some free coupons when it was first released.

Thought it was terrible. There is a chain here (Taco Johns) that has much better breakfast items.

Makes me wonder if they are all pre-frozen with cheese.

It's ok. Carl's Jr's breakfast burrito is better.

The name is just a huge turn-off for me. A McSkillet? Really?

I find it on the bland side. It's like they simply take their breakfast foods and stuff it into a tortilla skin. It doesn't have that freshly made taste to it.

It's fairly new, maybe we are a test market. I usually get a grilled breakfast burrito and a breakfast taco. Very good. I think if the Mcskillet had Potato Ole's it would be much better.

Heck yeah! I just wish they would do something special for Taco Tuesday.

The commercials are killing me but I never get up early enough for McDonald's breakfast unless I had a one night stand or something.
