It took 20 minutes to finally get to the window. We spent that time bitching at everyone ahead of us to place their order already and move along. "It's not a complicated menu!" "You should already know what you want!" "Oh my God, what is wrong with you people?!"
And I love that once it was our turn, my friend said "Uhhh...Give me a sec." Hypocrite!
I leaned over and said in my best Mira Sorvino: "Do you have a businesswomen's special?
Employee: A what?
Me: You know, like a lunch....for businesswomen?
And right on cue Brian says:
"We're due in Tucson. You know, for a business thing."
Me: Can we just get a No. 1 with a Diet Coke and a 10-piece nugget to go then?
OK, so we had our giggles and we were probably way more amused with that than we should have been.
The employee at the window didn't look a day over 13, and he promptly handed me a Happy Meal Diet Coke. I know I've been using a new anti-aging cream but does it look like I'm old enough to want a Happy Meal? He also couldn't seem to master the skill of putting Diet Coke in a cup. I think the machine was malfunctioning. His manager came over to help and she smiled politely.
We finally got our food and I devoured it in the car. I suppose Big Macs and McNuggets can sometimes only truly be appreciated during a massive hangover. I'm lovin' it.

I stop in here for breakfast all the time. At least once a week. These guys always get my order right. Always. I always get my extra jelly. When I ask for eight sugars in my coffee, no one laughs. No one. And they are unfailing polite and smiley.
It's a nice thing in the morning. OJ, bottle of water, coffee or coke, and a sausage biscuit. It's a simple thing, but a nice thing. These guys always make sure this "nice thing" stays nice. Thanks, McDonald's.

Also, no playscape. Once saw a small boy here running in circles, crying disconsolately "where can I play? where can I play?" Thought for him "it's all downhill from here, man. McDonald's could've abated the pain of existence slightly, for a time, but chose not to."
Low-carb breakfast of 3 scrambled eggs, 2 sausage patties, and large iced black coffee: $8

The fries are good, but the McD's in the WalMart is so much better.

The only place I could think of that I could get Hash Browns with the Pup in tow was McDonald's drive through. So, I let the pup finish my omelet and excitedly got ready to indulge in some Hash Browns!
I chose this location because it is 2 blocks from Lady Bird Lake, where I had plans for a morning run.
I pull up order and wait less than 5 minutes for the 3 cars in front of me before the 2 Hash Browns are in my hands along with 2 packets of salt and ketchup.
I drove a block away and parked in the Daughtry Arts Center parking lot and savored every bite of my Hash Browns while my pup whimpered and whined to begin the morning adventure or maybe she wanted a bite, I was no way sharing.
The Hash Browns at this location are purrfect! - hot and crunchy on the outside with a nice non-soggy texture on the inside (if you have ever had a hash brown where they did not wring out all the liquid you know what I am talking about). I sprinkled some salt on one and poured some ketchup on the other. The Hash Browns were so perfectly cooked they really only needed a little salt....
I got home and logged onto http://www.mcdonalds.com to figure out how much damage I had done to my waist line and was pleasantly surprised - the Hash Browns only pack in 150 calories! I know those 150 calories are not that healthy; but I can run them off in less than 30 minutes......
McDonald's Hash Brown welcome to my weekend morning indulgence list!

I was told that they were "out of ice cream".
It seems that even Ronald has turned his back on me now. I pulled up to the drive through a shattered being hoping for just the smallest bit of comfort and I left with additional evidence that there is nothing in this life that we can count on aside from constant pain and the eventual relief of death's warm embrace. I will not be returning to this location.
This place looks like the ghetto / retard show. Could you not hire anyone at all in the place that looks half way normal? Never never never never again will I go to McDonalds for their garbage. This location is scary on weekend nights.

It has been a long time since I went to a McDonalds; I drove up to the speaker box and ordered the Big Mac meal, yep I up sized and I added two extra patties on the big Mac! Then I parked and ate it.
Well 16000 calories later the Mac Attack was over, yep I succumbed and ate it all.
As usual almost everyone has eaten at a McDonalds at some point in time if you never have, you are a great person. So no change it is the same now as it was 5 years ago, except prices may be higher and they expanded their menu to a healthier type but all the old items are still there and the quality is the same.
I will admit I get the breakfast sausage biscuit ever now and then.
Hum, I see no kiddie's playground here, that's odd. I stand corrected, a small inside playgroud is there.
Will I go back? Yes next time I get a Big Mac Attack.
