According to a suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court on Wednesday, Sarah Theines claims the incident occurred when she pulled up to the drive-thru of a McDonald's in Chicago's West Side to order a cheeseburger at 3:50 a.m. one morning last December.
The suit alleges an employee told her in "an aggressive and unfriendly tone" that she couldn't order the burger -- only the breakfast menu was available.
Theines claims the employee then denied her a ham, egg and cheese bagel and "yelled at her that ham cannot be included with any of the bagel sandwiches," the paper reported.
She would have to order bacon.
After she placed her order and pulled up to the drive-thru window, Theines alleges the employee screamed at her again and spit in her face.
Franchise operator Ron Lofton said he was aware of the suit but had not been served a copy, the Tribune reported.
"As always, we investigate claims to gather the facts and take action as appropriate," he said in a statement. "At this time, these are just allegations."
Theines said she filed a police report the next day, claiming she suffered "injury, embarrassment and humiliation," the paper reported. She is seeking unspecified monetary damages.
