I'm glad this McDonald's keeps it true to its roots - I always love coming here for an occasional double cheeseburger or hot fudge sundae. Check out the McDonald's museum located adjacent. Always worth visiting. FIVE CLAWS UP!!!!! Joe G. Bear

This McDonald is historically old. Love the little museum of the old McDonalds paraphernalia. The food is good and coffee is my favorite.

This is not just your typical McDonald's. Not only do they serve the food you grew up with at McDonald's, they also have a museum. There is no inside dining, just a patio. Worth the stop, at least for the memorabilia in the museum.

I was driving near here, and my GPS started dinging. I think it called this "the world's oldest McDonald's"! It is the original one, and probably the only remaining one with the golden arches. Who doesn't remember those from childhood? LOL.
