“Typical McDo”
Review of McDonald's

McDonald's
Ranked #42 of 59 Restaurants in Butuan
Cuisines: American, Fast Food
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Clean and fast. Typical food for a McDonald's but be prepared for a wait if you want an hamburger as the standard fare in the Philippines is chicken and rice and this is the normal menu here too. I agree with another post here, there are plenty of more traditional restaurants in the area, perhaps not as clean but, as the saying goes, when in Rome do as the Romans do. Why travel to another country just to eat McDonald's?.
Be prepared for people begging for food. Sometimes they watch through the window and stare at you. It can be a bit off putting but I fear many of them are genuinely hungry. We sometimes give our left overs to them and they share it around their family. There is a nice family that sell souvenirs outside to raise a bit of money. Help them out if you can and say hello from Charles.

The McDonalds service is very much felt in this southern city. Quick service, not too crowded even in peak hours. Good ventilation, air conditioning, which is what guests expect during summer months in the area. Right in the heart of the city, it's very accessible from the major business areas of Butuan.

The usual McDonalds with a Pinoy twist. Clean and friendly. Better to eat at some of the Grill Yards that are around the mall.

Took m finace and her family there. Intersting mcdonalds. Next to the mall in butuan. You have to visit hte mall too. But hte place has an area where ronald mcdonald is sitting with his legs crossed. Small kids (and older filipino kids) can sit in his lap. the most interesting part is serving rice with meals. They really have done their research on the culture. this is a great place to enjoy. Just be ready for some items you do not see in america.
