I swear in the time before they had to watch how much salt they put in their food, it used to taste really good. Now that they are under pressure to be more 'responsible', it just isn't what it was!

There is no reason one can't enjoy the occasional McDonald's as part of a healthy diet. I blame that twit who made the Super Size Me documentary.

It's always tasted the same for me. But if you did notice a change, I think it's a pretty safe assumption to blame it on the negative media fast food has been getting.

I went once to McDonald's many years ago for the party of some friend. I promised myself not to go back there never again.

If I want a hamburger I rather to go to some bar where, just for a few bucks more, they will serve me a better quality one :)

McDonalds has always tasted like total garbage, the only thing that is acceptable to eat is the French Fries. The food is just as bad for you as it always has been, they just now try to add in some healthy choices that eventually get pulled because no one orders them.

I really thought that it would be like the haute cuisine found in Michelin star restaurants.

I actually had to go there a few months ago and I got a sausage mcmuffin, it tasted like absolute sh*t (pardon my language) and I was disgusted with myself for the entire day afterwards - I couldn't even eat lunch or dinner. I had to go run for 2 hours just to regain some sense of dignity.

Burger King > McDonalds for me.

 

Never been a huge fan of McDonalds tbh, I mean if there's nothing else around I'll eat it but I can guarantee I'll be hungry again in a hour and it's stupidly overpriced for what it is.

Subway is ok in a pinch, i'm not a huge fan, but it is better than anything I listed above. Usually if you want a sub there is a better deli nearby (in a major city). The Italian BMT there is not entirely horrible.

No, the salt disguised the flavour, or lack thereof.

 

Sure, but you can also snort cocaine once a month without any severe health detriment, but that's not a reason to do it. Blaming a person for trying to make some minute difference for the terrible state of health in the US is kind of stupid.

 

In short no, McDonalds has always been overpriced tasteless garbage.

I forgot when I last went there. Over a two years ago! :lol: Down here we have Burger King, Wendy's -- though I hate their sh*t --, Whataburger, Carls Jr., and Five Guys Burgers.

Five guys is the absolute worst. The fries are terrible, soggy and not crispy. The bag (brown) comes translucent with grease. I was so happy to see the one near me (That was packed with lines out the door for a few years) finally die and go out of business.

Only two years? About 7 or 8 here. My veins appreciate it ;)

It was good down here. The fries tasted really good and crisp and the burgers were to die for. Maybe they improved?

I went to Five Guys when I was in Florida about five years ago and their burgers and fries were both excellent IMO.

Still tastes like typical fast food to me. Their habanero quarter pounder is pretty delicious, damn near close to the Dairy Queen Flamethrower.. f*ck, brb.. going to DQ.

I normally am above that type of foul language but I could not think of another descriptive term that sums up my opinion of McDonalds food.  :(

Unfortunately it's been a part of my diet for most of my life (my parents couldn't cook for sh*t so we'd eat out a lot) and I haven't noticed many changes. I always order the double cheeseburger and small fry and it's decent enough. I really need to stay away from it, but the food here on campus isn't very appetizing, so it's lose-lose for me.

I mostly only eat the French fries, McChicken and strawberry ice creams.

 

The big mac, out of all their hamburgers, seems to taste different now.

I went to McDonald's once about two months ago. The place looked clean and had a lot of customers. I didn't feel the urge to eat another McDonald's hamburger after I tried it. My parents don't eat at fast food restaurants. So I never ate at McDonald's before. I didn't eat candy either unless it was Halloween or a friend offered it to me because there wasn't any at our home.
