The McDonald’s menu has expanded from the basic burgers and fries to include all sorts of stuff like Chicken McNuggets, gourmet cafe beverages, salads, down to the odd stuff like the here-and-gone McRib. For breakfast, McDonald’s has a variety of biscuit sandwiches and McGriddles (hotcakes instead of a biscuit) to sate your appetite. In recent years, McDonald’s has tried to cull the less profitable and popular items from the menu to streamline its operations. You may not see the variety you used to for its All Day Breakfast Menu, for example. For the full current menu, click here for the McDonald’s Menu page.
