Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast for Dinner

There's no worse feeling than arriving at McDonald's a couple minutes after the breakfast window. Fast food employees tend to act like they're dealing with a matter of national security, as no McMuffins shall ever escape the vault at 11:01 a.m. Fortunately, there are several fast food chains that offer all-day breakfast, so roll on up to these drive-through windows any time you like.

Frappuccino beverage from Starbucks Coffee


It feels odd to start anywhere else, doesn't it? Starbucks is specifically designed to get you going in the morning, so it makes sense that its breakfast beverages and snacks would be around all day long. Unfortunately, the ubiquitous coffee chain tends to sell out most of its breakfast fare (that bacon, Gouda, and egg sandwich is a killer) before the day is done, so just because you can get breakfast all day doesn't mean you will.

Not only is Jack going for breakfast all day, he's packing his menu full of options. He's got egg-based sandwiches loaded into croissants, brioche-esque buns, and (obviously) sourdough. Breakfast burritos and McDonald's-style pancake platters are available as well.

Au Bon Pain

Much like Starbucks, Au Bon Pain (or "from good bread) is cafe-centric, which means bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries are on deck any time of day.

White Castle Restaurant

White Castle

Dubbed America's oldest fast food chain, White Castle has enough credibility under its belt. The all-day breakfast doesn't hurt though, especially in slider form. Swing through whenever you please for breakfast sliders, chicken and waffle sliders, and toast sandwiches.

Sonic restaurant

Sonic Drive-In

Sonic has a little bit of extra oomph when it comes to breakfast, serving food that tastes like it might have been made at an actual restaurant. The SuperSonic Burrito (filled with scrambled eggs, sausage, shredded cheese, jalapeño, onions, tomatoes, and crispy tots) makes a strong case for the best fast food breakfast burrito.  



Is Denny's really fast food? Probably not. It's a massive chain with over 1,700 locations in the U.S. though, and as "The Santa Clause" taught us, it's open 24/7. That breakfast menu is always shining, so as long as you stay away from any Hoobastank collabs, you should be just fine.

Did you know it's just called Dunkin' now? Dunkin' Donuts is no more. Anyway, wraps, croissants, bagels, muffins, and doughnuts are lined up and waiting for you at your convenience. That overrated coffee, too.

Much like Denny's, IHOP doesn't fully count as fast food, but the fact remains: Breakfast is ready to hit the table at any time of day. Most IHOPs tend to be open late, so if chocolate chip pancakes are what you require as you leave the bar, you know where to go.

The Bojangles biscuit series ranges from "normal" to "maniac," but that's exactly how we like it. Egg and cheese? Sure, why not. Pork chop and chicken-fried steak biscuits? A bold move, but luckily they're excellent. Nothing but pimento cheese? You've lost us on that one, but that's okay. Keep doing your thing, Bo.
