No trip is complete until you have that McDonald's run for the kids and we found it by mistake, but once they saw it, we had to go. Me, I love the fries so I was ok with it.

Stopped for breakfast before day of sightseeing in DC. Easy parking and fast service experience was negated by testing of fire alarm. Let's just say the loud alarm DEFINITELY got our attention and exit we did....but sooner than expected!

Really hard to review McD's. This is the place where you missed your lunch time and stuff food in your mouth ASAP. You can find much more better place to eat burger in this area.

Restaurant meals can take a big chunk of time when there is so much to do and you are on Metro or walking. We gladly popped in McDonalds for fast food so we could get to our day. Although majority of museums are free, they close EARLY near 5pm so long lunches have an impact.

This is a scary McD's. Lots of gang members, swearing, etc. I was there with my kids and was glad for the police presence, but it was not comfortable and we hurried right out.

It's hard to review a McDonalds because - well, hasn't everyone been to one or more of them? The food is not going to vary much from one McDonalds to another. But, this McD has several things going for it: 1) location location location - right at the Friendship Heights Metro stop, so whether you live in the area, shop... More

Food was typical and what you expect from McD's, but the service was terrible. It has to be the world's slowest employees (well, actually the young lady working the register was pretty decent, but the food prep takes forever).

Same McDonald's food but with slow service, horrible bathroom facility (you must enter via the guards key - he was across the street smoking when we got there), and a dirty overall appearance. Two stars because my son likes McDonald's so much.

There is nothing good to say about this McDonald's. We were hungry and this was the first place we found. We should have kept looking. It wasn't terribly busy, but we couldn't find a clean table. I had to ask for a towel to wipe off the tables. There was a woman who was trying to use the restroom which... More

The fairly new large glass-enclosed McDonalds attached to the Air & Space Museum is an excellent place to grab a quick fast value food meal on the Mall at a decent price. There are cafes in most of the museums on the Mall, however the food available usually costs more and is not something you may be familiar with. If... More
