Luckily, my kids don't beg for McDonalds every time we get in the car. For those of you not so lucky, May I suggest Panera as an alternative. It is better for them, obviously, and you get the added benefit of being able to feel smugly superior next time someone mentions a trip to McDonalds.
The food is good, too. Unfortunately it is not good enough to warrant the price. Quiznos, Subway and Potbelly are a far better value for basically the same food.
