Fast Food Talk: Brekfast for dinner?

I was having a crossinwish from burger king this morning. Damnn tasty food. And i started thinking they have a whopper for brekfast. But why cant you have a brekfast food for lunch or dinner. Say its eight at night and i have a craving for an egg mcmuffin. I should be able to go into a mcdonalds and order one. When I go to IHOP at dinner time, I always end up getting brekfast food. So why not fast food chains? Is there some kind of rule these fast food places have where they cant serve brekfast foods after a certain time?

I love ordering an Extreme Sausage Sandiwch and a Bacon Cheeseburger at the same time.

I think you are a very smart person, and will back you 100% in your endeavor to make this happen. I have this one place near my house that will deliver breakfast food until 11:30 every night. Thinking about it makes me drool on my keyboard. I can even order it online, I have never talked to a person there.

Of course not. It's a matter of profitability.

To that end, the BK near where I used to live starting making lunch AVAILABLE at 9:30 AM. That's right. You could get a Whopper at 9:30 in the morning. Apparently, the building behind them was a huge customer service phone bank and people got off shift at 9:30 am and wanted dinner, so because they made money on it, they did it.

It also explains why I once got a crossandwich with a whopper patty instead of sausage. My friends, it was disgusting.

Well, "nutrition" is a relative concept in the fast-food world...

"I have this friend" that used to work at BK. The eggs are frozen and have to be cooked in an oven for about 6 minutes. They shut the oven off before lunch. As far as a whopper in the morning, not when he worked there, they usually fired up the broiler at 9:45a.m. or so and it would take a good half hour to heat up. The sausage goes in the fryulator for 75 seconds. The croissants are either frozen and thawed or delivered by the local bread company with the hamburger rolls. Back in the day they used to use real eggs and cook them in a pan that they laid over the fryulator grease. Then they switched to liquid eggs in a carton and cooked them the same way. When they started selling biscuits and cinnamon rolls about 10 years ago is when they switched to the ovens and frozen eggs. The BK "my friend" worked at would do about $3-4K a day in sales. With usually $250-450 of that the first 5 hours they were open for breakfast. Breakfast isnt a real money maker. 25% of that was probably coffee sales. So I would say the reason they dont do it all day is cause that kitchen gets pretty hot during the summer with no a/c back there and the heat from the broiler, steamers, fryulators and heat drawers. So to add the oven to that would add more heat. Someone would come in and get a $3 breakfast meal rather than a $6 lunch. They would need a seperate fry bin for the hash browns if they are going to be serving hash browns and fries simultaneously. The heat chute would need more slots as well as they get pretty full during lunch. Too many design issues and not cost effective.

Sonic Drive-Ins serve breakfast all day. Pretty good, too.

I have never believed in the whole "breakfast food only in the morning" nonsense.

I'd love if all restaurants served everything 24/7.

But it would raise costs obviously.

This was hinted at a while back, but if it hasn't happened by now, maybe it's not going to. Of course, McDonald's is trying to get into the coffee game, so maybe that will revive the breakfast all day thing?

In college, I used to spend $2 for a Breakfast Jack and a Jumbo Jack, put the egg/ham on the Jumbo. Then I would drunkinly enjoy a crappy cheese sandwich before having the best Hamburger + Breakfast sandwich in one.

Good times.

I was at a McD's a couple weeks back. Went in specifically for a breakfast sandwhich. It was about 10:30 so I asked if I could still get one. Of course the answer was no, but I broke out my phone to check the time. 10:29. Showed it to the girl. Oh yeah, I was that asshole. I got my sandwich and don't even care what "extras" were in it. It was scrumptious.

I'm never "that guy" but was having a rough morning and just wanted a McGriddle.
