Fresh food, but had to wait longer than expected.

Slow service, gave my order to another customer. After a wait got my food and an apology. In my experience not as good as could be.

Went to grab a quick meal for my son after practice and was disappointed by the slow service. Only one car was ahead of us but service at both windows was slow. They did not seem to get a large order and we only ordered a #1 (Big Mac Meal). Getting out of the driveway was exceptionally difficult with traffic.

Once in a while I allow myself a McDonald's meal as a break to my budget as well as a challenge to my immune system. I often pass this McDonalds in my commute. I had to go home very late last night so this was one of the restos open. I tried their Bacon Clubhouse sandwich choosing the meat of... More

I have had a mixture of services and was pleased to have a nice smooth transaction with the correct items. My son wanted cinnamon melts, fries and a burger. The order was taken promptly and the line moved at an adequate pace. The cashier was busy taking an order and barely stopped to take my money and stay "Thank you".... More

This is probably one of the worst McD's in the area. Staff is basically horrible. They get orders wrong, are very slow and really have no cares to be there. Thankfully I only need to visit once and awhile. But sad to see that McDonalds cannot get their food or their people right no matter how much time goes bye.

I love their egg mcmuffin, but was a bit disappointed this time. The egg mcmuffin seemed a bit squashed and not as appetizing as usual

Was in a hurry and stopped here again to get my son a snack. The lady taking the order was very efficient and repeated back the order. I checked the ordered to ensure it was correct before leaving the Drive-Thru window and the McNuggets meal was complete. Big improvement in service.

Needing a quick meal before basketball practice for my son, I made the mistake of expecting better service than before. No one was in the drive through line, but it still took nearly five minutes to get my order placed. A # 10 meal ( chicken nuggets, fries and a coke) and a cherry pie, not too difficult. To my...

This McDonald's has a great location right off 101 and Whipple. Unfortunately, the service does not match the location. As a frequent visitor for my kids, it is frustrating to constantly be told they are out of an item even when it is listed on the menu. The cashiers always seem to have problems accepting payment (especially if you use... More
