: Which fast food chain makes the best breakfasts?

As long as we're on the topic of fast food, which fast food chain do you think offers the best breakfast meals?

I've had no luck with any of them in my area. BK used to be good, but then I had a few bad meals there, so I never went back for B-fast. McD's on the whole is disgusting too, but their potato cakes are pretty good.

Generally, for breakfasts, I like Dennys, but they're not fast food.
Anyways, what do you all think?

None... "Adam's Kitchen" makes the best breakfast, as far as I'm concerned!

Although... I have to admit, Wawa (for those of you in the Mid-Atlantic anyway) has started making those toasted ciabatta breakfast sandwiches - and surprisingly enough.. they're pretty damn good!

2nd the Chick-fil-A. The chicken biscuit is MONEY.

IHOP is GROSSLY overpriced IMO but stuffed French Toast is a good choice.

Dennys Moons over MyHammy also always a solid choice.

The only thing on the McDs breakfast menu I even contemplate is the McGriddle. From "I Hope they serve beer in Hell"...

Tucker : "Dude--That thing looks disgusting. It has to be nasty, with the syrup shit in it. What is that?"

SlingBlade : "I can only assume from your cavalier attitude that you have not yet partake of the wonderment that is the McGriddle. Let me enlighten you. What happens is the One True God grows them on trees in the Elysian Fields using a heretofore unused incantation. He then proceeds to magic them down to your local eatery where whatever Ghetto Bastard cook your McDonalds has rescued from welfare that week proceeds to wrap it in cellophane and pass it along to you, the fortunate consumer. You proceed to ingest this finery in the vain hope that your obviously overmatched taste buds can somehow grasp the delectable intricacies it is suddenly faced with. Is that egg? why yes it is, and bacon too. But wait-They didnt add... yes they did, yes they did indeed. They added cheese. And then, then my friends, they wrapped it in a sumptuous pancake bun! As your taste buds try to process that amazing piece of information, IT hits them... the syrup nugget. THE MOTHER****ING SYRUP NUGGET!!! It announces itself with a burst of confectionery grandiosity the likes of which your palate has never seen."

Tucker : "So you like them?"

SlingBlade : "if you EVER speak ill of the McGriddle again I will personally force-feed you one while I f'ck you in the butt using the wrapper as a condom and then donkey punch you when the infused syrup nuggets explode in your mouth."

Man, I just can't do the Egg Beaters... I can use them to make pancakes or French toast, but just haven't been able to eat them. However, don't do eggs that often -- usually on weekends. If I've eaten eggs more than a couple of times in a week, I'll cut out one of the yolks.

I typically eat a couple pieces of sprouted grain bread (like Ezekiel bread), whipped cream cheese, and either veggie/soy sausages, turkey, ham, or smoked salmon.

My favorite of all time is a Panera Bread Asiago Bagel, REAL cream cheese, a package of smoked salmon, onion, and capers........MMMMM. Have given up the bagels though, so have to make do.

As far as fast food goes, if I have to, I'll get a Chick Fil A and throw out the biscuit, and eat it w/previously mentioned toast. Same w/a McDonald's sausage/egg biscuit.

I rarely eat fast-food breakfast. I usually just eat 3-4 bowls of cereal, which is also why I go through a box every two days and a gallon of milk every 3 days.

If I have the time, I will go to Denny's. If I am short on time, its off to McDonald's for a McGriddle. Mmm, syrupy goodness.

Buy a McDonald's sausage biscuit and open it up to room air. You can leave it indefinitely and it will NEVER mold or mildew. Same rules apply to their basic hamburger. They'll look like the day you bought them a month later. There's something not right about that. :ack:

Same here. No one in the family ever does fast food breakfasts, lunches, or dinners on even a remotely regular basis (few times a year, and only when traveling), but when we do, it's almost always a BK stop for breakfast-like items. Same for lunch. Rarely of the rare, it will be McD's, if that just happens to be near.

All about eating before/during/after trip, saving money, and health. Just don't touch fast food, in general, aside from BK and McD's that once or twice a year.

The only exception, on my behalf, being Wawa when I'm at home and working or occasionally here at school, for No Sugar Iced Coffee (love it...wish more places had the same) or a grab of apples and/or mixed fruit for a lunch or snack.

2nd the Steak, Egg and Cheese but you must open it up and grab a handful of napkins to get rid of the extra grease.

McDonald's hash browns are great if fresh and pure crap when they get cold.

IHOP is OK, but I prefer the mom and pop places for a real breakfast.

Ham egg and cheese omelet, hash browns, sour dough toast, large cup of OJ and a Large Coffee... :drool:

I don't remember the name of the place -- this was in 1991. However, it looked like a lodge and the dining room looked out over a valley. It was a nice place, not really a hole in the wall.

Drove there from Kaanapali (left far enough before dawn to make it to the crater for sunrise) in a 1991 Deville -- and then went on to Hana and back.

The only bad part was that I only brought 2 cassette tapes w/me and almost drove my folks crazy during the all day trip there and back.

The Hana road in an SDV was....interesting...w/all the locals in Jeep Wranglers tearing around the corners.

I think it's meaningful that a couple of the drugs that are most effective at lowering cholesterol appear to be effective but it doesn't result in anybody living longer. Why take a bunch of expensive drugs to improve your numbers if you're going to die anyway. I'll take my ribsteak and you can have the Lipitor. I've had a severe Lipitor rection that damn near killed me. I quit taking all that stuff and never felt better. My BP is 101/54.

Jack in the Box... Bar-none, hands-down the highest quality fast-food breakfast you can get. The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich is the closest any fast-food joint has come to the Moons Over my Hammy at Denny's which I do NOT consider fast food because I can't pull my conveyance up to a window and get it.

Also, for the guy who said he isn't up in time, JITB has one of the few 24 hour Breakfast menus on the planet. In fact, their breakfast is so good I usually get a breakfast item AND one of their snack appetizer things (jalapeno poppers, eggrolls, tacos etc) when I'm on a road trip. It is unfortunate that there are practically NONE in Florida anywhere near me because I'd be there everynight.

After that it would probably be Grandy's, but I haven't been to one in years so I don't know what they're like now.

Primarily in the west, south a few in the midwest (there's at least a couple in STL), and the southeast. They are very sparsely located and don't seem to ever really have any intentions of expanding further.

I think the E-Coli fiasco in the '90s halted their forward movement alot. According to Wikipedia, after that every single Colorado location shut down (although it also states the problem was primarily in the pacific northwest).

Yeah, there was plenty of bacon, but it was wrapped in a bland mix of eggs, cheese sauce, and a flour tortilla. The whole thing lacked flavor and seemed like it needed plenty of salt and pepper. It seemed like a concoction I could have made at home out of old leftover groceries.

NOPE.

Chick-Fil-A was started in Georgia. Not exactly a hotbed for the Mormon "church". It was however started by a religious man (Baptist) who didnt believe in forcing his employees to work on Sunday. I can respect his decision cept when Im nursing a hangover on a Sunday morning and NEED a Chicken biscuit.

Their nuggets are AWESOME and the Polynesian sauce is the best sauce at ANY fast food chain.

A chicken sammich meal with an extra order of 12 nuggets with Poly sauce is the standard order.

BTW, that wrap looks like ASS.
