Best junk (food) in the world!

I like McDonald's especially when I crave for fried food. French fries is good but I only like them with chilli (especially the sweet and hot version; like Thai chilli) sauce and not ketchup. The only burger I eat is Filet-O-Fish and nothing else  (oh, may be once in a blue moon the McChicken). McDonald is also great to have when I'm broke! Other than that, I've no idea what the rest of McDonald means ;-)

Oh, I do love its hashbrowns! Matter of fact is, I love McDonald's for its grease (at least the oil is fresh, it could be worse!)! No one claims it's selling health food, do they? There was a time I liked its chicken nuggets but I haven't tasted it for years. No reason other than I've outgrown them, I suppose!



I do like its fast service, especially when I am about to catch a plane. And I found myself using its washroom more often than not when I was traveling about in a new city or country. I did enjoy its coffee from McCafe when I was in Budapest. That was one especially memorable coffee. 

So, yes, McDonald's has its value in more ways than one, LOL! At the very least, I can control my budget where McDonald is concerned, especially when one is on the road! Imagine going into restaurants and check their prices when you're low on cash! Rule of survival & McDonald's may be it for some!



For every single customer who hates McDonald's, I think there are at least three others who like it. Otherwise, you won't see the chain sprawling across the world, even more so than Starbucks and Walmart! Then again, other than Boeing's planes, this is one EXTREMELY successful American export! So why some Americans hate it is beyond me!

I do not think McDonald is "evil". I simply think one doesn't have to eat it every day and it serves its destiny for all of us once in awhile. Then again, don't take my word for it as I tend to be a junk food eater! Life is so lacking without junk food! Moderation is the key though, not isolation!
Best junk (food) in the world! Best junk (food) in the world! Best junk (food) in the world!

heh. it certainly is junk food--but their fries are good. Been like a year since I was at a McDonald's....

McDonald's is great especially in early mornings and late nights when everything else is closed!!! I also have a feeling that it's better in Asia than in America! I am not inclined to go when I was in the U.S. and Canada at all, for some reasons. In fact, I even remembered visiting it more in Europe!

There's nothing I can find appealing about McDonald's, as I think they're the epitome of cheap, processed garbage passing as food. Hell, just thinking about their name and image is enough to make my skin crawl.  Don't get me wrong, I like fast food when it's done right, but McDonald's and quality are like antonyms. I haven't been to one in five years, and the only things I ate there were the chocolate shakes and fries (which I didn't eat frequently). Ever since …

The least favorite of fast food options, I'll only eat here as an absolute last resort and I'm starving to near death. I used to like their fries until I tried Carl's Jr's which are far better. I think that Mickey D's has long ago given up on any sort of quality and gone for profit and expansion. When I'm traveling, I get a little frustrated that this fast food place is in a culinary city like Paris or somewhere where travellers should be encouraged to try the local cuisine which is going to be …

The French Fries at McDonald's are about all I will eat there. They are probably one of the better fast food fries around. Otherwise, watch out for the chicken nuggets which are made of sketchy excess chicken parts that are turned into paste, dyed and re-modeled into what resembles a nugget. Yum, yum.

A cheap tasty fix, but beware, as the quality can change making it exciting to eat at sometimes.

Personally McDs makes me sick to eat anymore except for the occasional breakfast sandwich, but they do serve their purpose. As a person that home cooks most of my children's meals, happy meals now and then can be effective tools for treats for them and they can burn off most of the crap they eat playing on the play structure until they are worn out.

Just had their Reese's McFlurry and found it to be a delightful little treat. I still prefer the Reese's Sonic Blast from Sonic, though.

You can order the McMystery meal if you want-it is either fresh cooked or a greasy gray patty!
It's hard to say what you can get at a McDonalds these days.      After I moved I got to experience a whole new slew of fast food locales with more visits then I have in teh past.  The more I ate at them, the more I realized that McDonalds can't cut it for me in my fastfood diet anymore.      Sure they're fries are okay, and only okay.  Compared to the freshness of In N Out fries or the beefiness of Wendy's …

I know you're horrible and contain trans fat, but why are your fries and burgers so good? You're my once a year dirty little secret.

I don't like really McDonald's burgers but I can enjoy the deliciouos french fries from its menu, for me the best french fries in America.
Quick Tip by . November 13, 2009
Never ever liked McDonalds. The burgers were always razor thin and greasy even in the 1960's.

About this restaurant

Wiki

McDonald's is the world's largest fast food chain, serving more than 47 million customers daily, and having more than 31,000 locations worldwide. The restaurant serves traditional American foods like burgers, fries, shakes, and chicken, and has branched out into other foods in recent years, such as salads, Mexican cuisine, and snack wraps.

McDonald's has come under heavy criticism in recent years for its role in contributing to growing obesity trends in many nations. As a response, the company prints nutrition information on many food wrappers, in addition to serving healthier fares such as salads.

The company was founded in San Bernardino, CA, in 1940, and is currently headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois. As of 2008, the company had over 380,000 employees worldwide.
