This sure brought back memories! The 4th ever McD's in all it's original glory! I wouldn't care if the food was terrible (it wasn't), I would come here every day (if I lived nearby). Museum's cool too.

I enjoyed stopping off in Downey, California, to visit this old fast food restaurant and adjoining museum. The museum is small, but it contains a good history of the McDonald's business and has many interesting items from past promotions. It was also fun to see the signs advertising prices from years ago.

The store manager is so sweet & the food is so fresh, the chicken usually tastes funky to me in other mcdonalds but I've had no problems with theirs & the fries weren't cold like past experiences with other mc donalds'.

This was a fun place for a meal. I haven't been to a McDonald's for years, but I wanted to visit the oldest one. Good pictures with the big sign. Fun to order outside. Having a museum was nice. Food wasn't bad either (for fast food).

Looks just like it did when it opened on my little bothers birthday in 1953. I think corporate hate the place because it does not conform to anything they run today, but you can see the original golden arches and have an idea where "in and out burger" got its colour and theme design from ... not worth the drive...

Gave it a five for its historical value, not the food. It's McDonald's need I say more...

I just happened upon this place by mistake. It’s actually the oldest operating McDonald’s. It’s the fourth one built, opened in 1953. 50's music plays over the loud speakers. They have a cool museum display & it’s FREE. It’s nothing to brag about but it’s kool to see all the vintage memorabilia. Hey, what do you want for free!! Just... More

You can buy tshirts & other such souveneirs here. They also have a cafe. The cafe was closed when I got there because it was too late. All I ate were fries which tasted fine to me! Your typical McDonalds fries! I just had to go because it was the oldest McDonalds! There's a pretty neat museum that's small but... More
