McDonald's Two Cheeseburgers Extra Value Meal Wed, 02/4/04 2:45 AM (permalink)
What is it with McDonald's restaurants Ohio not offering the extra value meal consisting of two cheeseburgers? I know from experience that they are offered at the Golden Arches in Indiana, Minnesota, and Missouri. Why not the Buckeye State?

    Maybe they don't think you guys can eat two at the same sitting? LOL

      This is quite common. The company tries different things in different areas all the time. McDonalds doesn't offer lobster rolls in Ohio the way it does in Connecticut. Why did they have cheeseburgers with grilled onions in Columbus, but not in Akron?

        I cannot understand why McDonald's does not offer food in my state.

          I've finally been able to completely forgo McDonalds. Ever since they "reformulated" their Chicken McNuggets, I am no longer tempted to snag one of the dark-meat McNuggets out of my children's Happy Meals, since they are now all white-meat.

            I can't understand why I'm on this thread

              The title of this thread reminded me of the old WC Fields line (with apologies to any Philly residents):

              First Prize: 1 week in Philedelphia
              Second Prize: 2 weeks in Philedelphia

                    McDonalds is just pure uh...(insert horrible word )I cant believe we are talking about the injustice of value meals not being consistent. I get my "value" from eating from local places who dont have clowns to draw me in, nor do they have reconstituted onions chillin on thier burgers. STEP AWAY FROM THE GOLDEN ARCHES! run for your lives.

                        It seems to me the one time I eat at MC'Ds every year it gets worse and worse. I am not sure if the quality is falling, or if my standards get higher....Probably both

                              When I was 16 and worked at Mcdonalds ('82-'83), I couldn't stand making the McRibs. I hated it so much that I never had one. The look of the frozen ground pork extruded with the fake ribs was just too much. Additionally, they had to be cooked at a different temp than the 10-1s and 4-1s, and sit in the sauce for at least and hour before serving.

                              While I do get my kids McD's every once in a while, I agree that the quality has slipped. At sixteen, I was actually proud to work there. They weren't the the last place teens wanted to work -- They were actually selective. And I learned how to work hard, follow directions, and take pride in even menial work.

                              You never see a bunch of kids happy to work in a McDonalds anymore.

                                  I say this at the risk of sounding biased, but I totally agree with Sushi_Girl. Her remark about where she gets her value from is right on the money.

                                      You know, guys, food snobbery is really unbecoming, whether it's people looking down on you for eating in a refurbished dining car with a boomerang-Formica counter instead of at Maison de la Casa House, or you looking down on someone else for eating at McDonald's instead of a refurbished dining car with a boomerang-Formica counter. I'm not seeing a difference here.

                                        In my own defense here let me just say that im not being a food snob, i dont think Fast Food Franchises such as McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut,,etc are Roadfood in the true sense of the word. If you look at the places listed on the restaurant directory its not a whos-who of fast food...its a whos-who of local owned,greasy spoon,sweat and tears, genuine americana food! So with that i feel that our comments on McDonalds still stand as relevant....

                                          There's a big difference between "chain restaurants have no place being discussed on these forums, which are devoted to a different topic" -- which is a fair cop, don't get me wrong -- and "I am morally superior to the poor benighted souls who don't know any better than to eat at chain restaurants," which is a strong element of the vibe I'm getting here. I understand not liking chain restaurants. Frankly, I'm not a big fan myself. I just see no need to insult the people who do like them.

                                              Luck Bishop,

                                              I agree wholeheartedly. For instance, the venom that is spewed on the topic of Denny's is uncalled for. If you don't like it, fine....say so. You don't need to say that all your children and their children will be tainted if you eat there.

                                                  All:

                                                  Please see the "What is Roadfood" part of this site. Link here:
                                                  http://www.roadfood.com/NewsInformation/WhatIsRoadfood.aspx

                                                  Considering the Sterns definition and the spirit of what this site is all about, if you come onto the message boards espousing a chain and/or their products, you have to kind of expect a little ribbing and bashing. McDonald's and Denny's just ain't in the spirit of Roadfood. I standby their right to say so.

                                                  I also standby the right of people to disagree and argue with them, too. That is the beauty of the fora!

                                                    meowzart,

                                                    The fora are about roadfood. I understand that. A simple reminder of that would do however. The poor woman from Australia asked a legitimate question about Denny's and a lot of the replies were way over board. She is interested in seeing Disneyland, not trying to find a diner that meets the criteria of the roadfood elite.

                                                    Most if not all chains or franchises started as mom and pops including McDonalds. There is a seafood resturant here in Sarasota that is excellent, Barnacle Bill's. They have 3 locations. Does this make them evil? If they open one in Tampa, does that make them evil?

                                                    Another one is the Columbia. They are in Ybor City, Sarasota, St.Augustine and I believe Gatlinburg, TN. Are they the devil's spawn?

                                                    I know this is a trite thing to say but if you can't say something nice........................

                                                      Oh, but A McDonalds in the 1950s started as a "Roadfood" type of place.

                                                      It grew into what it is today.

                                                      Denny's was new "Roadfood" after the post Diner phase - 1950's - 1970. Denny's started in the Long Beach area - 50+ years ago.

                                                      These places hold a special place in the memories of those who were kids back then....

                                                      Mom wanted a clean place... and the chains answered the call - I love small restaurants.... in fact my friend owns WORLD CURRY which was just reviewed a few weeks ago here on this web site. We both worked at the same Carl's Jr. in High School. (Carl Karcher - another person who started with a hotdog cart and grew the business.) Yes, from someone working in a "Chain" came an excellent "Roadfoad" restaurant.

                                                      Please don't look down on people who sometimes enjoy a chain.

                                                        All I am saying is this: If you post about enjoying a chain, expect to hear about it from people who are anti-chain (which this site essentally is). People here may look down on you and tell you so, but don't let that get to you. That is the beauty of free speech. You say what you want. They say what they want (and it may not be in the nicest of tones). But considering what is out there on other food message boards and internet sites, you will not find a nicer place to post and espouse your position, pro-chain or not.

                                                          My only complaint about Mickey D's is that they used to be beacons of cleanliness, now I find that they are getting dirtier and dirtier. Haven't been back since I ordered a Big Mac and found three huge finger sized grease stains on the Big Mac box.

                                                          One thing about roadfood is that you would drive out of your way to get to the place. McDonald's are everywhere and therefore are they worth driving out of your way to get to one? Although, when travelling with my wife when we have been abroad I end up dragging her into some McDonald's in Europe just to see what is different about them ... so I guess I just answered my own question

                                                          From a used to be huge McDonald's fan.

                                                            Does this mean I shouldn't post my 'TV Dinners' topic??
