In what part of town is this McDonald’s? I mean, if it’s in a high crime area and it has been robbed several times then it wouldn’t be worth the risk for me…. ;)

Exactly. They used to be fresh. I used to like watching them run potatoes through the machine that made the fries. Those were the best.

Everything needs to be cheaper, faster, more efficient.
Running potatoes through a machine is none of those.

Unless I’m having a menu, I don’t go to McDonald’s for their fries.

Yep. The original fries were cooked in beef fat instead of vegetable fat until around 1990. Kids today don’t have a clue to how great those fries were in comparison to how they are today. The flavor is not even close, in my opinion.

Even the fry trucks around are not the best anymore and like McDonalds they shake about 1/2 pound of salt on them .

We used to do just that. McDonald's over Burger King or others, because the fries were much better. If we wanted a Whopper, we'd go to Burger King for that, then go to McDonald's and pick up fries. They were that much better. Not so today though.

Next time you go to the McD, pick me and @Spencerdl up.

That is so true. I can’t tell you how many times me and my friends did that back in the day, especially with Burger King and McDonald’s being across the street from each other.

What made it better growing up, was the McDonald’s close to my house had a playground. We use to get happy meals and go outside to eat and play on the playground.

Hey, whatever employers need to do to get people working. In SC the governor said the end of June also brings the end of pandemic unemployment assistance. Back to work, folks.
