McDonald's tries the dollar menu for breakfast


In an effort to bolster faltering breakfast sales, McDonald's has rolled out a dollar breakfast menu in select Chicago stores. Great on your wallet...maybe not so great on your waistline.

Although the promotion is a first for Chicago-area McDonald's, it's been done before in other markets, according to a spokeswoman cited by Reuters. And before you get used to your good/cheap coffee and McMuffin breakfast for $2, don't. There are no plans to make this a permanent deal.
