How is it this company is still in business?

A few days after this awful experience I had a similar meal at a different fast food establishment, and for a dollar or so more, got something that was 20 times more palatable.

Last time I ate there, I enjoy the McChicken, grilled chicken wraps, crispy chicken wraps, almost any salad, and french fries.

I am not exactly sure if any of that is actual food.

And I have not been there in a while. I don't know if I will go back lol.

... don't eat at McDonalds too often, but living outside the States for several years occasionally I'm fond of the Golden Arches. It may not be too nutritious and some offerings may not taste too great, but oh the familiarity every several months. Upon returning home soon, less likely I'll visit Ronald too frequently.

And another thing here; Why why why has the media attempted to compare Mc Donalds to Chipotle when it comes to a preference in food??

They are two separate types of food. Oh I understand the part about fresh vs a perception of ""processed "" but what I don't get is the fact that Chipotle is Mexican fare and cannot be compared to a restaurant that has it's main focus being burgers and fries.

A fair comparison would be Chipotle and Taco Bell.

I've eaten at Chipotle twice. The second time was one time too many as my nephew wanted to go.

I found the food palatable but not memorable. The ingredients were on the ""light"" side and the price for what your getting was borderline absurd.

My wife and I go and enjoy a good steak each month at a local high end steakhouse. We enjoy eating out and are willing and do spend money on quality but as once or twice a week restaurant, Chipotle doesn't make the cut and I love Mexican food.

If you live for trends, enjoy being a hipster and enjoy using free WiFi on your Apple product then Chipotle, despite it's lack of taste would be in your top five locations in which to frequent.

I get it, see and be seen right???

Meanwhile this 48 year old will sit once or twice a month at his local Mc Donalds enjoying a Big Mac and a large fry.

Chipotle used to be a susidiary of McDonald's and McDonald's at one time held a majority of the voting power of Chipotle's stock. People compare the contrast in free range this and the other marketing points of Chipotle and wonder why McDonald's does not do this.

Default McDonalds

Breakfast with an Egg White McMuffin, Oatmeal and a coffee is not bad at all. Stay away from the "Big Breakfast" as it is very high in Calories. (most likely fat and salt also).

I knew I hadn't been in a while a while. I completely forgot about the baked pies.

I worked at McDonald's in the late 60's early 70's. Gosh the food was good, and that new Big Mac, HUGE! I haven't eaten there in over 5 years because the food is so nasty now. That and the nearest McDonald's is over an hour away.

Each experience is different as it varies by location. I could have pretty decent food at one then bad at another. Theyre not consistent. About the fries, so good when done right but sometimes they are hard dark and nasty. Other times fresh and yea sometimes over or under salted.

I think there drinks are fantastic including milk shakes. You probably got someone who didnt do it right, again it varies time to time. I dont eat anything else other then drinks or fries there so cannot comment on other times.

My dad hates it to, hasnt been there in many mnay years.

About once every couple weeks I go into McD and get a cheesburger and fries. I like it. I think it tastes good. But I wouldn't do it more frequently than that.

Mcd's McChicken sandwich with a small fries off their dollar menu is pretty darn good when you are in a hurry and it costs less than $3.00. Best of all is the few week period when they offer a second McRib for a buck when you get the value meal. The only problem with their McRib is it is too messy to eat if you have nice clothes. If they offered bibs with them they would be better.
