I don't eat much fast food these days, but I used to frequent the McD's of the thread's title regularly when I did, but my experiences only matched Joyce's up to a point. Yes, it is an exceptionally clean and quiet McD's, which is definitely nice. And the regulars -- mostly seniors -- are neither obnoxious nor annoying. But my experience was that I was just as likely to get cold or mushy fries there as any other. (I literally haven't eaten a McDonald's fry in over 6 months, so perhaps that situation has improved.) And while the employees were all friendly, to be sure, they were just as likely to screw up my order as at any other location. Admittedly, the likelihood of screw-ups fell dramatically once they stopped using "W/O" as an abbreviation for "without", as the folks on the line were just as likely to read it as "with only". And when you're talking about ketchup, that's a big problem for me.

The books are real (I think), they've just been cut in half and glued to the wall! I actually find the faux library trappings disturbing, not charming.
Definitely agree about the Coke. Best in the world. But I cut out high fructose corn syrup completely* a while back, so it's something I probably won't be enjoying too many more times in my life. But w/o ketchup, their burgers contain no high fructose corn syrup. So nyah!
*Anyone else done this? It was staggering to me to discover how many products they put that crap in. Why the fuck was there hfcs in a jar of peanuts, for example?
