Oh, what the heck...I'll jump in with my 2 cents about Mickey D's. I've eaten a lot of Goodfood and Roadfood, especially up in New England. Worked at Polly's Pancake Parlor, have eaten at Durgin-Park, and I've eaten at the best crab places here in MD. BUT...I like McD's. And yes, I think their fries rival any I've gotten at a typical roadfood place.
I will agree with the previous posters who said that McD's is a great place for a kid's birthday party. We've had several there over the years, and every kid has a good time. And the parents hang out and gab.
We are blessed with a couple of large McD's play areas around here, and when it's too hot or too cold, we take the kids there for some cheap entertainment. In general, the facilities are clean, although there are exceptions. And, McD's and others of that ilk were amongst the first to go NON-smoking years ago. I noticed that after the fast food places did this, the private roadfood places did it, too. As a non-smoker (except for smoked barbeque
) I welcome this trend!
No, it's not typical Roadfood. But at least it's something we've all tried and about which we can all comment!!
