I do. I had one of those angus burgers on yesterday with some fries and a orange soda. I must say it was a step up for the ole Ronald. They are still average if anything though. I can name a ton of places that trump this restaurat for sure.
But for some odd reason, their taste seems to be quite addictive. What do you think ?

I use McDonald's drive-thrus when I'm on a long journey, but that's about it.

By the way, I went to one in a motorway service station in France last week and I was able to order a Big Mac with fries and - get this - a beer!

I crave their fries when I'm drunk, and occasionally get one of their new smoothies, coffees or salads... but I can't bring myself to eat any meat from that place for a variety of reasons.

I love McDonald's! The happy meal prizes are so much better than the crummy ones I used to get though. Not sure if they still have the Mcdonald's party buses but they were the best. Apart from at my friends birthday when Ronald McDonald came on and scared the crap out of me.

You should try their stawberry smoothies. They are delicious and very smooth indeed. Their fries have won them over with nearly everyone in the world. So this is perhaps their strongest point when it comes to food and how they measure up against others.

McDonalds still makes more money than any other fast food store in the world.
So how come they are number one, and not Hardees, Wendy's, or Burger King.

Ahhh, McDonald's...I love the French fries, which are so crispy and, with a drop of ketchup, can taste so good, the sandwiches, and the meals there. But now I prefer the luxury of restaurants in the open Mediterranean or an old Italian bar, where I can drink cappuccino and look at the wall hangings. I have now been cultured, and no longer desire the improvidence of American cuisine....

Salads come with chicken though.

I think it is the stunning combination of french fries, mixed with the cheese from a burger and the sweetness and texture of a vanilla milkshake. Hmmm.

I think you made a mistake including British "cuisine" in that list but otherwise I agree!

Convenience has virtues, especially for pit stops on long trips. It's not fair to compare it to real food, since the main selling points are cost and convenience.

Some of the breakfast food is fine. Overall, the food is too sweet. They put sweet sauces on hamburgers -- a crime.

I went to a McDonalds in Switzerland that had wine. In Japan they have corn soup. In Hawaii, Portuguese sausage with rice for breakfast.

Man Is Good. Obviously you are oblivious to your own environment. I have been to the Great North many times before, and that includes New York City.
They have restaurants where you can eat Southern food day and night.
Maybe you should try them in your spare time. Fried chicken is divine. <

Chicken nuggets are evil..

I hate them.. but if I go there... and someone's getting nuggets..

I end up having at least 20.. each one leaves you hungrier than when you started!

Really I try not to go there b/c I find most of their stuff kind of sickening to think about.. but They've got good coffee, Hashbrowns ($1 a piece though :/ ).. and awesome fries.

Of course you can compare it to real food in spite of its processing.
Fries can be seen as white potatoes.
Burgers can be seen as an alternative to normal beef.
The smoothies and sundaes are of course ice cream.
The salads are vegetables in a different form.

It is not that far from normal, or else people would not be eating it.

Really? There are restaurants with 'Southern food' in the 'Great North'?

See this is what I mean when I say oblivious ? You are such a genius arent you ?
This is the perception of the Northern White Male Conservative. Why do you deny culture ?
Youre an ultra modern Conservative. And an idealogue. I find you guilty of
non assimilation. This is part of your upbringing, isnt it Man Is Good. Comments please. (Getting ready for a long winded debate)

Ahh, an interesting question you pose, as it not only reveals the socioeconomic desires of the American public, but also an in depth analysis of oneself and how he has conformed to the masses of the country.

No, I don't like McDonalds. What a dimwit question.

the only Shake I ever get is Wendy's frosty..

and not the new-fangled fake-frosties they've been selling. Just the original kind.

That and a spicy chicken sandwich 8)

much better than Mcdonalds :P
