Yeah, the McDonald's on Broadway is one of the coolest as well.

That's pretty irrelevant. On a typical Saturday night you'd have a 30-minute wait at just about any restaurant in this country; maybe not the local 24-hour diner (of which there are plenty in the South).

You know this ... how? By standing outside and asking people where they're from? Get a life, man ...

Don't you see where I'm going with this?
You're going nowhere with it, because your conclusions are based on a string of fallacies. Not to mention that a person from Thailand, a chef in a Thai restaurant, is no less Thai because he or she chooses to live in Birmingham instead of Boston.

I don't think it can get any more bland and ugly than that.

It's a McDonalds, what can you expect from it? It's just a general design.

Want to see a unique one in Houston, look at the Space City one... but I doubt you care though, so leave it at that.

And to anyone and everyone else: Do not post a picture of it, the burden is on her if she cares to look it up or not.
And no I don't blame you for not looking into it either. It's fine, but I did enjoy your Broadway one, thank you for sharing, if there are any other cool ones in New York then feel free to share it.

Because that is just not true.

I can't speak for Charlotte as I don't know enough about it, but in Texas this isn't true at all, especially for the ethnic places. Why generalize something about one person in Charlotte, to the entire South? You're just setting it up for all of the bashers to swoop in, as they so often do.

There's a reason why New Orleans and Houston often make the top restaurant cities lists, and it's not because of chains or only expensive places.

None of them top the one in NYC with the doorman, waiters, piano players, and silverware

Hahaha you should see the one in Rome, Italy. I think that one can compete, made entirely out of marble. It's baller for a McDonalds, and theres one somewhere in North Carolina that is based off a Mansion design and atmosphere and all that good stuff.
