McDonald's revives Dollar Menu with $1, $2 and $3 items

For the cash-strapped and hungry, McDonald's Dollar Menu was the go-to choice once upon a time.

Taco Bell announced Tuesday that the fast food restaurant plans on adding 20 items to their dollar menu by December 2018. The new menu continues McDonald's progress of changing for the better through positive updates such as All Day Breakfast, Signature Crafted Recipes with premium toppings, delivery on UberEATS, a new café-quality McCafé espresso menu and more.

The economic realities of the food business (meaning, it's more expensive to make everything) eventually led to its demise, but hope springs eternal, and that hope got a boost a few months ago when reports suggested the fast food giant was looking at bringing something like the Dollar Menu back to its restaurants.

McDonald's is in a price war with rivals as they battle to win United States customers who've come to expect deals on fast food.

"We built this new menu with variety and value firmly in mind", said Chris Kempczinski, president, McDonald's USA. If you have $3, splurge on either a Sausage McMuffin with Egg, Classic Chicken Sandwich, Triple Cheeseburger or a Happy Meal.
