I experienced very slow service at this restaurant and the quality of the food was pretty low. In general, my impression is that the US version of McDonald's is serving lower quality food than in Europe. Doesn't recommend, there are many other burger places to...More

The place is fine but they MUST be more careful with the cleaning. The service was quick but the attendant almost didn't speak English. Ok for a quick lunch.

The drive-thru guy told us to wait twice, and just left. Another employee took over and apologized for his lack of professionalism. It was annoying, but at least they got our order right.

This McDonald's was nothing but struggle. The hours were horrible, you could only order food through the drive-through at night, and the employees were unfriendly. They refuse service to people who want food at night but do not have a car, claiming that only people...More

The french fries were the worst ever. They were just a bunch of oil and salt mashed with potatoes. After I ate the fries, my mouth was dry and I had a stomach ache. Go to In-and out, they are a lot less oily, disgusting,...More
