Dunkin Donuts's Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich

[We've moved this thread from the discussion at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/839677 -- The Chowhound Team]

Has anyone tried Dunks' Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich? Even in the commercials, which obviously are trying hard to food-porn it up, it still looks like a grade-school cafeteria Salisbury steak from the Helen Mont-Ferguson administration.

  1. Aaaack, gosh I grew up in NYC and I remember those misbegotten crimes against culinary decency.

    1. I'll confess, MCSJB,
      It DID look good in the commercials, but I had two bites, and it was beyond inedible!! I felt ill the rest of the morning from those two bites: Shoe leather steak, Chewy bready terrible bagel, tasteless processed eggs.
      I thought I knew what I was getting myself into, but even so...
      blech.

        Wish I could feign surprise here. I hope Frankenthaler is earning a nice salary. Thanks for taking one for the team, jbp!

          I wish I could say "you're welcome", but boy, do I regret my moment of media induced weakness.

          1. re: justbeingpolite

            So it's not "A TREEEMendous delight"?

            I learned long ago that DD's commercials are not to be believed.

            although those pigs in a blanket awhile back were pretty tasty

            1. re: L2k

              Basically, whose commercials ARE to be believed? When was the last time what you got looked exaclty like on the screen? I've all but given up on fast FOOD. But, damn, DD and McD coffee IS incredibly good.

              1. re: njmarshall55

                DD coffee is good, and every 7th one is free (with their little "frequent drinker" card).

                I think Mickey D's has improved its coffee lately. Right now, any size MD coffee is $1. yeah!

          2. re: MC Slim JB

            From Salamander to DDs - quite a change of pace. Dunkin cannot seem to get it together for any non-donuts/pastry item. The bagels are like a sponge, those flat-bread sandwich things were disgusting, and now "steak" and eggs? Really? If I must eat, I usually just get 5 of the Munchkin doughnut holes (invariably stale), and that reminds me never to eat there again for the next 6 months.

        2. No, I have not tried it, and it does not look extremely attractive from the internet photo. Not horrible, but not attractive. I may try it one day if you guys think they are good.

            Micky D's breakfast sammies rule!(up here in Canada anyway).The coffee ain't so bad either..

              I haven't had McDonald Breakfast meals for a long time, but I remember loving them. If I remember right, I particularly love the Egg McMuffin and Hash Brown. My mom would buy them for me when I was a kid. Now, I haven't eaten them forever mostly because it would be "out of my way" to go to a McDonald for breakfast. In other words, it would consume time instead of saving time.

              Maybe this Sunday, I will drive to a McDonald and have a McBreakfast :)

                Where the heck do you live where you can;t find a McDonald's close by? There's one on every corner in Toronto..(not necessarily a good thing) :-D

                1. re: petek

                  :)

                  First, I kinda of live in the middle of nowhere (not really, but I like to think so compared to many places I had been to)

                  Second, I am kind of the person who wake up the last minute, and skip breakfast more than half of the time.

                  Ironically, I do have a Dunkin' Donut close by and also on my way to work. I have yet to have one of the Dunkin' Donut sandwiches. I did try last week on my way back to home, but the store was already closing and couldn't serve me.

                  This picture actually looks good.

                  Toronto sounds cool.

                2. re: Chemicalkinetics

                  the hash brown has to be eaten first, while still very hot and crispy. after that… ;-(.

                  btw, biscuits on big breakfast (or in trays) have a crust, and are smaller than the fluffier ones that come in a biscuit sandwich.

                    <btw, biscuits on big breakfast (or in trays) have a crust, and are smaller than the fluffier ones that come in a biscuit sandwich.>

                    Now that you mentioned it, yes, I think you are right. By the way, I never really like the McDonald pancakes in the breakfast menu. I don't quite if I hate them, but I don't think I like them.

                    1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                      i agree on the pancakes. i just use them to soak up two fake syrups. ;-)).

                      1. re: alkapal

                        Dumb question. Do you (or anyone) what time does McDonald stop serving McDonald breakfast?

                          1. re: acgold7

                            Thanks. I may very well give the McDonald breakfast a try tomorrow. It has been so long since I have one. I wonder if it tastes any like I remember. I have very fond memory of it.

                            There are certain foods which have lived up to my old memory and some did not. Cantonese Dim Sum did. Chuck E. Cheese did NOT.

                            Thanks again.

                            1. re: acgold7

                              Just got there and have my Egg McMuffin value meal: Egg McMuffin, harsh brown and orange juice for $5.XX. They were great, almost as good as I remembered them. Thanks acgold, alkapal and petek.

                              (I was so worry that I won't able to find a McDonald and it was 10:28AM by the time I got there)

                                The sausage & egg is my favorite.I put the hash brown on top of it,sooo good! :-D

                                  <I put the hash brown on top of it>

                                  :) I have never tried this. I will do this next time.

                                  Now, I can go to Dunkin Donut and see if its version is as good.

                  2. re: petek

                    Now petek, you're correct that Micky D's coffee is now far superior, but where is the support for Tim Hortons? Timmy's breakfast sandwiches are great, I like them more then Micky D's for sure, the bagel feels slightly healthier but the biscuit one is good too. Unfortunately Chem will have to go a lot futher to get Timmy's than Micky Ds.

                    1. re: TeRReT

                      Timmies better than Micky D's for breakfast? Nah..Not even close. To each their own I guess The hash browns at TH are gross and the sammies are OK at best,I prefer A&W brekkie sandwiches to TH's any day..

                      I will say that I tried the buttermilk biscuit thing at Mc D's and didn't like it at all.Too much biscuit,not enough filling kinda dry as well..

                      1. re: petek

                        well yes, the hashbrowns are useless at TH, but the egg and bacon on a bagel with tomato and lettuce is good

                          1. re: petek

                            What the heck is "Timmies"?

                            <I tried the buttermilk biscuit thing at Mc D's and didn't like it at all.Too much biscuit,not enough filling kinda dry as well>

                            I agree to that. I do agree that I like the McDonald hashbrown.

                            1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                              Timmies is what we here in Canada affectionately call Tim Horton's..
                              Google it! :-D

                              1. re: petek

                                Hey, I just did. The website claim there are two of them in Philadeplphia.

                                What is Tim Horton's like? Is it more like McDonald (fast food which happens to have coffee) or more like Starbuck (coffee shop which happens to have food)? Looking at the website, if feels like the latter.

                                1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                                  "What is Tim Horton's like?"

                                  It's the Canadian version of Dunkin' Donuts,but not as good....
                                  They didn't do very well when they tried to expand to the U.S of A

                        1. re: petek

                          CT had one in Plainville, but it closed soon after they installed a Cold Stone Creamery inside it, too. Went there once...not bad.

                          1. re: njmarshall55

                            I just want to say that I went to a Tim Horton's at the Vancouver airport. I was full already, but I ordered a hot chocolate. Now I can tell everyone that I have been to Tim Horton's. Just saying.

                             
                            1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                              congrats Chem! welcom to the club..... :P

                  3. Despite that I made some awesome bimbibap yesterday, I sacrificed my pleasure and got the Dunkin Donuts's Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich for you all

                    In the attached photo, there are the Steak & Egg Bagel Sandwich, some hash brown pieces and a cup of hot chocolate. Apparently, I cannot substitute the hot coffee with hot chocolate, so I had to separately order everything.

                    Here is my take.
                    The bagel was toasted onion bagel and it was alright. The egg was good, not rubbery at all. The beef patty is semi-loose and greasy (oil dripping all over my plate), which may not be a bad thing for some people since many people complain about the McDonald burger patties being dry and all.

                    I like bagels, but maybe it is not a great idea to couple a bagel with a loose patty because there was a lot of bagel to chew through and the patty was falling apart.

                    I really won't say it is bad, and people should give it a try. However, for me, it isn't sometime which will keep me up thinking over the week -- not like a McDonald Egg McMuffin. :P

                    I prefer the McDonald Egg McMuffin.

                          so back to the original post . . . i tried the dd steak and egg sandwich. oh it was really nasty. the meat was so greasy i couldn't eat it. and i'm not a healthy eating person by any stretch. but i did throw it away. it was horrible. however, i do confess to loving the the egg, cheese and sausage breakfast wrap. a lot lol

                              Jan threw away the streak and egg sandwich, (as did I), but apparently liked the wrap.perhaps I'll have to give that a go.have to admit i'm gunshy, after that sandwich (shudder!)

                                Man, you two really hate the steak and egg then. I didn't love it, but not the same extend as you two. :)

                      2. Calories be damned.....try the steak, egg, and cheese bagel breakfast sandwich from McDonalds...........when cooked to order, a delicious, greasy piece of breakfast perfection!!!

                          I haven't tried it. Maybe I will do so one day. The Dunkin Donut one is not that impressive.
