I wonder if maybe people aren't eating out as much as they once did? Money is still tight.

I stopped going to McDonalds as much because the service is always TERRIBLE! (...at any location I go to - I don't understand how you forget a straw on a combo meal almost every single friggin time).

They got rid of Dollar Fries and Sundaes and Double Cheese Burgers and replaced that with a McDouble and they got rid of more Dollar options. Exactly what did they think was going to happen? They are stupid in the head if they think increasing the price of items will make people buy more.

They mess up my sandwich about every third time -- I have to constantly check what I get.

Last time a manager got rude with me about it -- so I sent McDonald's Corporate a little e-mail. :shifty:

They can blame the Dollar Menu if they want, but when they charge nearly $7 for a Double Quarter Pounder Extra Value Meal, I make other choices. Yes, I suppose their prices are competitive with other chains, but seems a little high if you ask me. On the cheap end of the menu, Burger King seems to have more, and tastier, choices. As does Wendy's and Arby's. I guess I'm just bored with McDonalds.

Considering fast food is usually cheaper than buying and cooking your own fresh ingredients, I doubt this is the case.

Exactly. McDonalds is just killing off their competition. Once they hit that hospital bed theres no McDonalds for months afterwards, if at all.

They need to work on their service. Half the time your food is under/over cooked or they forgot to give you something. McDonald's is fine when they do it right but the rest of the time you end up wishing you paid a bit more for one of it's competitors.

I hear ya. I haven't been there in forever. The last time I went it took me 30 minutes to get my meal. I said never again after that.

I'm half tempted to screw up their timing the next time they ask me to pull up to finish their timer for corporate by just saying no.
