The Pandora McD's is one location you couldn't pay me a thousand bucks to go to. 

 

Mainly because of the Clientele  that frequent it. I mean just to sit down at one of the tables would require a heavy sanitation process.

 

And the staff are exposed to a lot more diseases and illnesses, which I don't want passing on to my food.

Using the word "food" and McDonalds is a bit of an oxymoron.  They had a coupon in the mail earlier this year so I thought what the heck and I was blown away by how expensive it is now for absolute crap.  I think it was $6 for a big mac and I'm glad it was buy one get one free because they are snack size

Yup, a double quarter pounder will set you back over $10 bucks now with tax. And that's the burger on it's own without fries or drink.

 

It's ridiculous they are basically charging dine in restaurant rates for the most heavily processed garbage on the planet.  I can go sit down and have a proper delicious burger meal at Red Robin for about 2 dollars more. Technically it's "Food Product", but it's not really food.  Kind of like how so many companies don't put Ice Cream on their Ice Cream anymore but have to put "Frozen Desert" instead because the product is primarily actually a whipped oil product and not ice cream at all.

I think it’s safe to say that McD’s and Red Robin are about the same on the processing scale, lol.

Good burgers can be found for not much more at Dutch Bakery, Pink Bike, etc. Lots of options.

You’ll pay far more when you factor in the drink and a tip.
