We live in the area of this McD's and when in a hurry hit the drive through. Understand that our review score of the McD's at 29th and Wannamker is largely a result of a failure to have trash cans outside suitable for someone going through the drive through to use.
We are just an average family with a busy life and often realize that we need to make room for drinks in our vehicle cup holders as we are ordering the next drive through meal.
This location use to have convient trash cans at several spots along the drive through so one could prepare for the oder they were making. After years of this customer service oriented service this location stopped. Now the to use a trash can you have to stop let someone out of the vehicle on the passenger side so they can walk across the parking lot (and hope you child isn't hit in the parking lot as they do so) to dispense trash then walk back. Or if you are driving solo you have to find a parking spot (someimes a real issue), park, get out, walk to a trash can and unload. When we are in a hurry either of these options is more than a casual hassle.
If we think of it before we are in line and have trash that has to go to make room there are times we just drive on North on Wannamaker to Taco Bell or another McD's who do provide trash cans for customers that are accessable. Do they loose some our business...YES. Do we still go there...YES. This issue is a managerment issue. A choice of how to conduct business.
The food at the location at 29th and Wannamaker is good for a McD's. As long as you stick to the dollar menu you get good value. If you order a meal.... well...for the price why would anyone do that? Or rating for value is based on ordering off the dollar menu.
If you are a frequent guest the staff get to know you and are friendly. The language issue is still present but not as over the top as it has been in the past. It seems to go in cycles.
We recommend this location as long as you take the time to keep your veh nice and clean. Otherwise there are more accomodating drive through just North of this location.
