“Worth the five minute drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

From downtown Flint, you can get on the I-475 expressway, drive South to the Hill road exit, turn right and five minutes later, arrive at this McDonalds. This McDonalds is also listed in Tripadvisor's Grand Blanc list of restaurants. The building is one of the newest in the area. The best reason for going to this particular McDonalds is that they match competitor's coupons... even those insanely cheap ones that you can print from the Michigan Wendy's website. They'll match the coupon to the closest matching product, so for example, if you had the coupon that gets you a free Wendy's single burger when you buy fries and a drink, this McDonalds will match a QP w cheese. You may ask yourself "why not just go to Wendy's instead?" Well, my wife really doesn't like the taste of Wendy's new style of fries, compared to McDonalds fries, plus McDonalds has better dollar menu items. I'm not sure how long the coupon matching promotion will last, but this McDonalds has been doing this deal for about half a year.

“Brand new building... two steps forward, one step back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

They tore down the old Mcdonalds building and built a new one. The old one had a children's play place and the new building doesn't. The rebuild site plan includes the corner lot where the gas station once stood years ago. This arrangement allows for better traffic flow and access to exit and enter off of Hill road. Now there are two drive thru lanes. The restaurant interior is bright and clean looking, not dark and cramped like the old McCafe look. Of course, the food is the same as you can get at all McDonalds. I was really hoping that with the rebuild that they would install the new Coke freestyle dispensors, but they went with the standard old Coke dispensors. I like the new mural graphics inside the dining area showing images of Flint's old Capital Theater and the Mott building.
