Value for money 4.5/5
It’s a McDonalds, you know the drill.
A largely unspectacular meal that won an extra half point in the ambience stakes because someone complimented Dave Thorp’s beard. There isn’t much else to comment on when it comes to McDonald’s. You know what you’re going to get as they don’t deviate from a formula that has worked on the commercial front for generations. However, the burger tastes like cardboard covered in plastic, too much Justin Bieber blasts out of the sound system and, in the UK at least, you can’t have a beer with it. Despite that, a meal does cost about 1/3 of of any of the other burger joints we’ve visited and, as long as you go large, you leave feeling reasonably full. The BBQ sauce also deserves a special mention as does the fact they’ve dropped the creepy clown for good. It wasn’t our first visit and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
Dave C order: Large quarter-pounder with cheese meal, with a vanilla milkshake.
