Review: Steak and Egg Breakfast Burrito from McDonald’s

Sweet mystery of life, at last I’ve found youuuuuu! McDonald’s has a new breakfast burrito. Apparently it’s still a limited regional offering and has already left my area, but not before this fat kid got his greedy hands on a couple. I give you: McDonald’s Steak and Egg Burrito. Breakfast is usually my favorite meal at McDonald’s, save the Angus Mushroom and Swiss, and the Steak and Egg Burrito reaffirmed my choices in life. At least regarding what to have for breakfast. Not much to be said about the rest of it. McDonald's Steak Egg Breakfast BurritoI was unable to locate a description on their website, however I feel the pictures and this review will sufficiently explain what you may (and should) be getting yourself into. A bit larger than their standard sausage and egg burrito, the steak and egg is more substantial thus more satisfying. Steak, eggs, cheese and a unique salsa roja round out this gem, all wrapped in a white flour tortilla.Steak Egg Burrito McDonald'sYour region may or may not have a different combination of ingredients, adding or subtracting them to determine maximum popularity. The portions and pricing may differ per region as well as it seems this item is still in the national test phase and has yet to become a standard addition to the menu. I wish I had known that at the time. I would have stocked up, loading my freezer with these bad boys and making full use of my microwave at regular intervals.Steak Egg Burrito McDonald's 2The steak was tender and juicy. Full of that authentic Mexican restaurant flavor; the steak nearly fell apart in my mouth and almost had the consistency of shredded beef. The eggs were fluffy and well done, no extra moisture and just enough salt to make them tasty. The cheese was their standard American McDonald’s uses on all of their sandwiches and wraps. Almost an enchilada sauce but with a bit more flavor the salsa roja wasn’t overwhelming, nor was it exactly spicy. It did however, give this little beaut a delightful kick of south of the border flavor and complimented the steak perfectly.McDonalds Steak Egg BurritoIn summation, I loved it. This is easily my favorite thing at McDonald’s, past, present or future. Get one now. Drop whatever else you may be doing and GET. ONE. NOW.

Pros: Everything about this delight is a pro. I cannot fully express my satisfaction with this item.

Cons: I have to wait with bated breath hoping this burrito becomes a permanent addition to the McD's breakfast menu.

    I’m in the Louisville, KY area and we’ve got them here. They’ve been listed as 2 for $3 as well so they’re an excellent value as well.

  2. Kortana says:

    I am honestly shocked by your high rating for this. I tried them about a month ago, and I could not believe how disgusting they were. They tasted like watery, frozen and nuked eggs with tasteless fake meat. I rarely ever throw away food, but I had to with these, the thought of them makes me ill.

  3. Alex K. says:

    Those things actually look really good. Are they better than the ones at Sonic? This review makes it seem that way.

  4. Robert says:

    Yeah, I don’t know if it matters when you get these, but the steak had SUCH a gray, microwaved appearance/flavor that I never tried them again. Blech.

  5. Smokin' says:

    I had the chance to try these last month and agree that they totally rock. The salsa has a little kick to it. Finally something on the menu with some spice. Lovin’ It!!!

  6. Sam says:

    I tried this as well and I have to say it was pretty good. It tasted pretty much like a breakfast burrito I would make at home.

  7. Dustin says:

    @Alex K: I definitely enjoyed them more than Sonic’s standard burrito but I would have to do a side by side comparison if we’re talking about the Supersonic.

  8. Gopher says:

    What kind of “authentic Mexican restaurants” do you go to? There must be absolutely no Mexicans in Missouri. I’ve had this burrito and it’s decent, slightly above average McDonald’s food, and probably their strongest breakfast choice. But, come on. Seriously.

    Authentic Mexican restaurant flavor? Have some self-respect, man.

    We had them for limited time over the winter months here in NJ. They were being sold for $3 for 2 burritos and you could get them all day, which you can’t get any other breakfast item past 10:30 am total crock in my opinion. Anyways, thought they were amazing and had to have one as much as I could because they are off our menu.

  10. Manavee says:

    I thought the burrito was a’ight, but nothing more. The texture was a bit mushy. In my opinion, it pales in comparison to the now discontinued McSkillet Burrito, which was easily the best fast food breakfast burrito on the market before they kiboshed it.

    • Murray says:

      What? The McSkillet is no more? C’mon Ronald, say it ain’t so. I’m with you. That breakfast burrito was top notch. Only my love for the McGriddle would occasionally steer me clear of the McSkillet.

  11. HunkGolden says:

    I usually like Mky D’s, but it was terrible. The steak was Mush. Goto sonic for a decent steak burrito.

  12. TheHotToddy23 says:

    Haven’t tried on of these but it looks okay. I have a tough time passing up biscuit sandwiches if I eat breakfast fast food. For once it is nice to see a positive review and positive comments on something. I realize that products vary by restaurant, and negative reviews are definitely justified in many instances, but fast food is just that… you aren’t ever going to get anything fantastic for $2 dollars or whatever cheap-o price tag an item may have. Keeping expectations and reality in perspective when eating any of this stuff is a necessity.

  13. MiMi says:

    we have these in Virginia Beach but they are 1.89 and really small. They should bring the steak mcskillet back

  14. Muu Muu says:

    I concur with other posters in surprise over this strong review. I, too, was not impressed by this new offering. The steak was hardly noticeable. The eggs were the norm. The sauce was strangely southwestern. The price was too high considering the regular sausage and egg burritos are much better.
