OAK BROOK, Ill. — McDonald’s recently announced its breakfast menu would become available all day nationwide beginning Oct. 6, but the fine print reveals that might not mean exactly what you think, according to WGN.

According to the McDonald’s website, “Depending on the local market, All Day Breakfast will have a limited menu that focuses on either McMuffin or Biscuit items.”

The two menu options offer a very limited number of breakfast items — and there will only be one or the other available “based on customer preference.”

If your local McDonald’s is serving the McMuffin option, it appears the only sandwiches available will be the Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg and Sausage McMuffin.

If it’s the Biscuit option: Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit; Sausage Biscuit with Egg; and Sausage Biscuit.

There will also be a handful of sides and hot cakes available with each menu.

Customers have been taking to social media to voice their excitement for the new, all-day breakfast menu —  but come Oct. 6, people might be disappointed when they realize they’re not able to get the McGriddle at noon after all.
