I go to McDonalds about twice a year.

I haven't been in about 17 years, save for a couple of times in the Netherlands last year, where the chicken nuggets at least are tolerable. Wasn't my choice but I was taken there and was hungry :laugh:

I don't mind McDonalds that much, but other places like Wendys and A&W make way better burgers.

McDonalds isn't any cheaper really, so I would rather pay for a better burger somewhere else.

I like McDonalds fries the most though.

You can usually get a real burger in a bar for not much more than a fast food place though, or even cheaper if it's the special for the night.

....his McEverything meal tab came in at $141.33. "Actually, I should correct myself," he writes. "The price of the sandwiches was $140.33…the extra dollar was for the Diet Coke that I added to my order."

Math fail, unless his Diet Coke was tax-free.   :rofl:  Somebody had to say it.   /s

 

I really hope he didn't eat all of that though.  :x

For some reason I expected this story to end with, "... he died shortly after". I love McDonalds, but sadly it doesn't love me.

 

In controlled moderation McDonalds is perfectly fine. I have it once a month at the end of the month. Not only is it awesome, but it's actually a nice little shock to the metabolism, which studies indicate is good for you. I get the diet coke because I think diet coke tastes better than normal ol' coke at McDonalds.

I get diet Coke because all that sugar in regular Coke makes me feel like crap.

 

That and it tastes better to me, too.

I understand what you're saying, for sure, but the logic isn't there. bad for you + bad for you = double bad for you. Perhaps I'm willing to splurge on a big burger because I just love them, but I don't want the massive amount of sugar and calories of a soda as well (which can be very comparable to the sandwiches do when you end up getting a meal sized drink). Why if you're eating one thing bad do you have to go all the way and make it even worse? Cutting back anything is good.

 

Personally I just try to limit my soda intake, diet, full octane or otherwise, just like I try to limit my fast food eating. I also never eat McDonalds at all though. It's like the worst of the worst when it comes to burgers. There are too many places you can get a decent fast food burger to go to McDonalds.

 

 

I totally agree with your preference but we are talking about a $141 super sandwich.

 

All logic goes out the window! You might as well smoke a pack and get a hooker in one night! =)

I find myself going to Sonic more these days. I go into McDonald's now about 3 or 4 times a year, at most.

 

I find Sonic food to be worse quality than McDonalds where I live.  Growing up I though McDonalds was the most disgusting place (and it really was).  They since have remodeled all their local restaurants and IMO McDonalds beats Burger Kings, Wendy's, and Sonic by a long shot (here anyway).

Yeah, I think it's a local thing. Our Sonic beats everyone else hands down, at the moment anyway.

Yeah, you're right. At least in this case it should have been an extra large with a little of every soda in it.

Sonic here is pretty bad. Their burgers are cold to the couch and feel like they pulled them out of the refrigerator right before handing them to you.

this is a failed logic that people dont get. (i know youre joking, btw)

 

i dont drink sugary drinks b/c they hurt my teeth and my stomach.

 

also, adding that giant Coke to your already-bad meal does make a difference. Say your caloric intake for the day is 2500 calories. that Coke you buy at McDs probably has 300-400 calories. that could be 15-20% of your daily intake. personally, id rather eat that amount rather than drink it.
