I ordered a 2-cheeseburger value meal not too long ago at McDonald's.

The funny thing is, I got two cheeseburger meals.

Someone needs some more training.

Burger King. Can't beat those flame-broiled Whoppers. Not to mention they're bigger than the Big Mac.

Burger King, definitely

I've been pretty disillusioned with McD's lately, the value menu prices are insane these days, at least in CA a meal can set you back $7-8.

I ordered a Big Mac for nostalgia purposes and the whole thing fit in the palm of my hand. I still would have been hungry if it weren't for the salt overload which made me feel more "sick" than full.

However, McDonald's breakfast is wonderful.

Their food sucks and I think it's ironic The Fascist Skeezeballs I mean Salvation Army has a fitness center named after the guy who franchised the McDonald's chain

Oh and McDonald Land stole its whole concept from the cult classic late 1960's Psychedelic Kid's Show H.R. Pufnstufs (about a British kid dressed like a cowboy, his magic talking flute and all sorts of trippy puppets). And which one was better imo? Definitely Pufnstufs.



 



That being said, McDonald Land had awesome playground equipment back in the 70's and 80's

Funny thing, it's cheaper here to go to In and Out than it is Mcdonald's, let that set in for a bit. A meal for 2 is cheaper at In and Out, than Mcdonald's.

I know I recently complained about McDonald Land ripping off their concept from an old show nobody but me even gives a crap about anymore, but like I said, for what it was, we at least got an awesome outdoor playground out of it once upon a time. Before whiny Soccer Moms and overly sensitive parents who freak out at even the slightest drop of a hat had all the cool stuff banned to make way for something worse (the plastic that replaced it is not as safe as everyone says it is. Not to mention that crap accumulates bacteria), this is what a McDonald's Playground typically looked like way back when. I was part of the last generation that ever got to experience this

Our local McDonald's only recently removed their playground (though it wasn't nearly as cool as the ones you have pictured) and totally remodeled the place to match the sterile, medical facility-esque design that so many McD's are going to. It was pretty sad really.



At one time, our McD's was really cool and unique. The interior and exterior more closely resembled the classic McD's, and featured a train track embedded in the ceiling with a working train (to commemorate the location of the McD's being on top of an old train station). It featured an ice cream bar with hand-dipped Breyer's ice cream and fresh made waffle cones, and was the last location in America to offer pizza (which was actually quite good).



Now it is so modernized it has the touchscreen ordering stations and minimalist design inside. It's dreadful.
