Pros: They give larger toys to kids under 2 so they don't choke on the pieces
Cons: The food
Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.
Remember when McDonald's was good? I certainly do. The To-Hell-With-The-Environment styrofoam containers are now being auctioned off on eBay. At least they kept the food warm. All of a sudden, Mickey D's turned environment friendly, and all the fun was lost.
Remember Happy Meals? They used to come in these cute little cardboard boxes that went along with the toy inside. That was so cool! It was either a Barbie or a Matchbox theme! Now, the kids get a paper bag, that are usually ruined by the grease from the fries. Not my idea of fun.
Remember when McDonald's didn't care if something was good for you? I mean, talk about artery paste! Even their fish sandwiches were loaded with calories. Their apple pies were deep-fried instead of baked. Know what? They were awesome! They came in a little green box, and were always piping hot. Just slap them right on your thighs! Now the Golden Arches have turned to a more "healthy" side. Salad shakers in a cup thing so you can get dressing on each bite...baked apple pies instead...riiiiiiight. That's much healthier.
McDonald's has conformed to society, and it's a shame. Fast food isn't about eating healthy. It's about eating quickly. I miss my old McDonald's, where I'd have a sausage McMuffin for breakfast, nuggets for lunch, and a Big Mac for dinner... Now, I can't bear to even look at the menu.
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, … more
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 … more
Someone has to speak up for McDonald’s. I’ll gladly accept the challenge. I’ve eaten their burgers in cities across the nation since 1964 and I’m still munching with delight. The regular hamburger is my favorite, with the perfect combination of soft bun, meat patty, catsup, mustard, dill pickle and chopped onion. For the price, I’m always surprised by the consistency, the lack of grease, the flavor and the…well, unami. Transfat? … more
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 … more
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.
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.
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 … more

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.
