McDonald’s has announced the All Day Menu – as in the one with the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Chicken McNuggets and French Fries – will now be served literally all day.
In a reverse situation of the all-day breakfast introduced in 2016, you can now have a McMuffin for dinner or a Quarter Pounder for brekkie.
“Following a successful trial in Victoria and South Australia earlier this year, we’re excited to be [serving up] some of our most-loved menu items all day every day with the introduction of the All Day Menu at all our restaurants,” Jo Feeney, Director of Marketing at McDonald’s Australia, said.
If you don’t feel like having a feed in-store, the menu will also be available at the drive-through and with McDonald’s delivery.
It will be intriguing to see what workers at the fast-food chain make of this development, with one particular Macca’s employee taking to reddit a few years ago to lament the introduction of the all-day breakfast menu.
“The muffin toaster pretty much gets jammed next to the buns,” the redditor said.
“In my opinion makes the walkways too small especially considering on one aide [sic] is a hot toaster and on the other side is the fryers.”
The employee added: “Basic [sic] creates a lot more work for people out back in terms of preparation and cleaning but of course no more labour hours to compensate for that extra work. It sucks.”
Of course, if you’re not too distressed about the plight of the humble Macca’s worker, perhaps the lack of hygiene could get you steamed – because apparently that’s not happening to the restaurants’ hot plates anymore.
The redditor said “sausage and 10-1 regularly go down on the same grill one after the other without a steam clean” – 10-1 being the staff name for the burger patties used to make cheeseburgers.
