Anyone who craves McDonald’s hash browns past 10:30 is in luck: the mega-chain officially launches all-day breakfast on Tuesday. A limited morning menu will run at locations nationwide.

The move isn’t just a response to consumers demanding McMuffins around the clock, though breakfast is arguably Mickey D’s strong suit. The company has been on a downward slide in the fast food market, and hopes to win the day by extending some of its more popular morning items.

Not all dishes are available past conventional breakfast time, and vary by location; ABC News has a handy rundown of what you can—and mostly can’t—get on the all-day menu. Sadly for McMuffin and biscuit fans, you’ll only have one of the two options when ordering a breakfast sandwich for lunch. Washington seems to be in the McMuffin zone, with locations in Chevy Chase and Columbia Heights serving a full lineup of muffin sandwiches and hash browns. Not all are so lucky.*
