McSkillet Burritos: evaluated

The McChronicles mused about the new McSkillet Burrito. Then, Michael Schroeder gave us the 411 on how good they are. Moved to action, The McChronicles travelled to Sarasota, Florida to sample this promising breakfast fare.

But first, the Sarasota McDonald's:

Store #: 5983
Address: 787 S. Washington Blvd, Sarasota, FL, 34239
Owner/Operator: Bob & Joan Davies
Store Manager: Heidi Martino
Time: 7:54AM

Pulling into the parking lot it was fun to see the store's windows being washed. The grounds were tidy and bright.

Walking in revealed a very typical, nothing special layout. The dining room has an old car theme, with a few basic pictures on the walls. Nothing special.

The Sandwich:
When asked about the popularity of the McSkillet Burrito, the counter person was unable or unwilling to converse in English. She turned the situation over to a manager. The manager confirmed that the breakfast sandwich is, indeed both very tasty and very popular.

The McChronicles ordered both an Egg McMuffin (control) and the McSkillet Burrito (experiment).

Bottom line, compared to the old standard (Egg McMuffin), the McSkillet Burrito is flavorful, exciting, tasty, moist, and very hearty.

A caloric or nutritional comparison was not made. Info anyone?

Nutritional information on the McSkillet Burrito can be found easily... - I would post a link but it was an incredibly long link. Google McDonald's McSkillet Nutrition information. There's about 610 calories with 36 grams of fat. Whatever that means. I think our modern diet in all it's forms is just a big experiment upon the human body anyhow. Who knows?!

I learned that the McSkillet is also searched with steak. None of the stores that I've visited have had steak - Tucson only serves it with savory sausage (bacon if you ask).

I think this is the first time I've ever heard anyone referring to a burrito as a sandwich. I had a McSkillet Burrito about two or three weeks ago and it was pretty good. Not amazing but acceptable.

Also, I have learned that burritos in general are not very photogenic.

in my personal opinion when I saw McDonalds Burrito I thought "McBurrito? surely don't have a good flavor" and guess what? one one wekk later nobody can't take mou out from McDonalds.


Very cute picture.
