    It looks a little like a Starbucks but since that's not a restaurant, I guess not.

    I guess it has most 'shock' value if it's somewhere like McD's

    I thought that, but the 'fast food' and the lack of giant window for viewing the end of the universe signal that it must not be.

    Do they serve your food there or do they still call a number when your order is ready? :rolleyes:

    No matter how you might dress it up, its still the same food - I haven't been to one in years and I don't plan on it anytime soon.

    Mmmm...back in the days when I ate meat, I had two great loves in the fast food world. The Whopper, and the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich. :D

    EDIT: So anyway, what city is that McD's in?

    My city was a test market for the McDonald's 3-in-1 concept. (McD, Bakery, and ice cream parlor) Now that they're done testing, they've remodeled it to look like in the photo.

    That photo must not be from a US location.

    Egg McMuffins are good for a quick breakfast, but your right about the rest of the menu.

    jesus, sales must really be going down the pan..

    for me, i hate sitting in mcdonalds. if i'm feeling a lil' hungry while walking down the street i'll just get a hamburger to eat while walking. i dont know how people sit and eat in that restaurant - the smell of disgustingness and grease is overwhelming.

    mcdonalds just isn't a place to sit and eat. burger king is always empty and depressing. starbucks is cool - just the right mix of american tourists* and overpriced coffee mixed with good music and comfy chairs.

    *p.s. i love tourists - especially american ones. you guys can be so funny. :D :)

    I used to be a McDonald's junkie back when I worked in an office center that was right next door to one. When you're working until 7 or 8 pm and you're hungry, almost anything will do. Of course I started suffering from puffy gut syndrome, so I had to say "no mas." :p
