I wouldn't bother reviewing a fast-food place, but when the only other review calls this a "world class" restaurant, I needed to offset it with some reality. This store is just a McDonalds like all the other McDonalds. If the food tastes better here it's because they're violating the rules. All McDonalds food is required to taste the same or you're subject to discipline by Ronald McDonald.

McDonalds has never gotten the "big hamburger" right. The Big Mac has more bread than beef, and you can't order a Big Mac with ketchup and mustard because it's against the rules. The quarter pounder is better in terms of size and taste, but then you have the problem of cooking on a flat-top grill instead of flame broiling like some of the other fast-food joints do.

McDonalds fries are the worst of all the fast-food fries. And why can't they just come out and say what's in them? No, there's no animal products, yes there are animal products, there were animal products but we took them out, there weren't animal products but we put them in... what's the straight scoop?

McDonalds may have been first, but they quit being best a long time ago. Depending on your preferences, both Burger King and Wendy's have distinct advantages, including a broader menu with more experimentation. The McDonalds menu hasn't changed much since I worked there 30 years ago.

PROS: Convenient location
CONS: Limited menu, bad fries

I really like this store. They have the best customer service around. They are very friendly and the food here is better than the other McDonalds around. I belive it is because they change there oil for the fried foods more.

In Short
The intoxicating smell of golden fries cooked to crispy perfection and succulent burgers sizzling on the grill permeates the space, while a lively chatting and munching crowd maintains a laidback vibe at this famous fast…
