Nowadays fast food is not cheap ... Not sure why people choose fast food when other similar priced options are out there.

While it is more expensive than it used to be, It is still cheaper than other options (aside from fish n chips maybe). Depending on what you get of course.

 

McDonald's cheapest burger combo starts at $5, but if you want you can order one of their fancy create your taste burgers with lots of extras added and spend around $20 on the combo, While their favourites range (Big Mac, McChicken etc) combos are around $9

Because it is _fast_ - other options are slower and IMO no better.

Kebab is almost as fast. It is a much better option health wise imo. It can take a few go's to find the right place and the right time of day, the correct amount of sauce, ok yeah its too complicated...

i must admit , the design your own burger using the touch screens is a fun past time and they turn out to be one of the best burgers i have tasted. Full marks.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

I have to agree most foods one can buy are usually just as bad. But I can't justify what $9 for a burger fries and soft drink. Or $9 for just a wrap on its own !!!

MikeB4: Yuck, McDonalds is disgusting and not worth it at any price any time

 

 

 

When was the last time you had McD's? I often see people state something like the above, often followed with ''I havent touched the stuff in years''  

 

 

 

I think they've come a long, long way in the last 5ish years. By no means is it good food or good for you, but $6 for a double cheeseburger, chips and a drink is very appealing. 

 

 

 

I personally find it very tasty, but then I'm easily pleased with food I guess, & ignorance is bliss.

Had my first McD for several years this weekend past. The big angus combo at Taihape, can't remember the name. Not bad, but no great shakes. Happy to wait several more years till next repeat.
