I was aware that Mc Donalds Corp. at one time owned Chipotle. I agree with you concerning why people have questioned why Chipotle's food sourcing equals arguably a fresher and healthier end product but what still makes no sense is how the media simply compares Mc Donalds, a hamburger oriented establishment focused on value pricing verses Chipotle a Mexican restaurant that is perceived to be upmarket.

For me the coffee is the worst part. I've never liked McD coffee. The rest of it I'm okay with once in a blue moon.

How can people consume it? When it's 2 in the morning, you're starving and McDs is the only place open. That's how.

I love McDonald's!! I eat a lot of their breakfast items, and every March I enjoy a few Shamrock Shakes from there. Don't know about their regular coffee but I like their lattes.

Like their fish sandwiches, though they've gotten small, and I liked their burgers... or did, anyway. A couple of weeks ago I had a burger that I think was one of their newer, healthier ones, and I did NOT like the taste.

Been disappointed in their fries the last several times, too. Wish they'd go back to frying them in whatever they used in the past.

I don't hit fast-food joints seeking healthy.

It's because of pressure for healthy that the oil used for the fries was changed to a trans-fat-free one.
So often, unhealthy is what tastes good!

If you haven't tried their coffee in a decade or more, they've vastly improved with their specialty coffees like lattes.

We will only stop at McDs when we just want a quick breakfast. The only thing that I like are their Egg McMuffins. Can't recall the last time I was forced to eat there for lunch or even worse, dinner. Every time I ate there, I just felt like I was eating empty calories. Never felt full and then it sat like a rock in my stomach. I don't know what feeling was stronger-still being hungry or being miserable from the heartburn and indigestion that I would get from it.

Lately when we want our quick breakfast, we have been going to Dunkin' Donuts and get their version of an Egg McMuffin.

My youngest step-daughter works for McDs. I hate the fact that she works full time but doesn't make a livable wage.

I can't. My last McDonald's meal was in 1991. I had a normal fillet O Fish, chips and a few chicken nuggets. I felt queasy afterwards. I don't know why. Maybe it was the food. Maybe it was just me.

I had a science teacher at school who said that as an experiment he hung a McDonald's bun on a wall. Six months later it had not gone mouldy. Six months of preservatives? Ick.

Oh, it's not just the buns, Hypnotist: The secret to the immortality of McDonald’s food - Salon.com

On the other hand, maybe Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane was right when she sang
