McDonald’s breakfast menu has its healthy options and its unhealthy options, but one thing’s for certain: they’re all pretty tasty. Whether you’re looking for a quick Egg McMuffin or a heartier Big Breakfast (with pancakes, eggs, sausage, hash browns, and a biscuit), it’s hard to hit up the McDonald’s breakfast menu and leave unsatisfied. But what time can you order from the menu?
McDonald’s breakfast hours vary, but they begin, obviously, when the restaurant opens for the day, which at most locations is 7 a.m. (some locations are open 24/7 and start breakfast earlier than that, at about 6). During the week, most McDonald’s stop serving breakfast at 10:30, and on the weekends they stop at 11 a.m.
The exact time that the switch is made depends on the franchise owner, but they need to make sure that the grill has enough time to warm up before the lunch rush begins. Because eggs and burgers cook at different temperatures, the grill needs to switch over.
