Concerning the McDonald's Breakfast Burrito: At least one REGIONAL FF chain came up with this idea LONG before McDee's did. I must say they are quite a bit better than the McDonald's offerings. I must admit however, that on RARE occasions I did partake of a McDee's Egg McMuffin and (shudder)... a Steak, Egg, & Cheese Bagel...

    I forgot about McDonald's trying hot dogs about six months ago. I guess that didn't fly any better than the bratwurst. Then there were the mini-corn dogs they had a while back.

        While briefly living in Albuquerque shortly after graduating from college in 1987 I remember Wendy's was selling GREEN CHILI CHEESEBURGERS. Never tried one though, and that was back in my fast food days!

          trust me, you haven't lived until you've seen a McDee's selling a crab cake, ranks right up there with those lobster rolls!! Unbelievably they do this on Marylands Eastern shore yet!!

            I drove by a McDonalds today (NW Indiana) and on the sign it said they now have Johnsonville Brats.

              Aside from the prejudice against NYC and semites, SchmickyD's still sucks. North Platte gentile and Brooklyn Jew-- same. Frontier breakfast burrito and Ronald's McBleh!rito-- not the same.

                Aside from my admitted lust for MCD breakfast burritos (I bet my congregation wonders what that aroma is at early Mass on Sunday!), I must disagree about Sonic. They're individually and lovingly prepared (). Your only error is, of course, your preference for the #1. #2 is clearly superior. And I wish they'd change their numbering system, for obvious reasons. But they're still the best FF chain around!

                    I really can't comprehend anyone loving McDonald's breakfast burrito. My difficulty is not based on social policy nor is it for health reasons, but it's purely for reasons of taste. The McDonald's breakfast burrito is a skinny, relatively flavorless little packet which cannot be compared to a real breakfast burrito.

                    Of course, since I have driven hours for White Castle hamburgers, I really am in no position to condemn anyone's particular food preferences.

                    In any event, does anyone else know what I'm talking about? I'm talking about those huge burritos, filed with fried potatoes, egg, cheese, and chorizo sausage (or bacon) and topped with a generous helping of green (or red) chili; the kind of breakfast burrito that you can get at Playa de Oro (Denver, Colorado) or at various little Mexican restaurants throughout the Southwest.

                    The real thing puts McDonald's breakfast burrito to shame, and will spoil you forever. It's like having a pizza from Pepe's or Sally's in Conneticut, and then trying to order from Dominos. You can never go back. <sigh>

                      Drambuie in Texas those burritos the size of one's head are called Mariachis.
