“Matt”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Matt's customer service is terrible. He shows no desire to progress through the company, nor does he show any pride in working for McDonalds, food is good, just keep away from this place because he is arrogant and too big for his boots. Management needs a word with him.

“If you liked every other Macdonalds you'll love this”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

2 - storey city centre Macdonald's. Pretty much identical to all others. In York you are spoiled for choice for places to eat and this establishment has settled arguments with the kids where to eat. Unfortunately.

“Greatly underrated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

I know, reviewing McDonalds seems a little redundant. We've all been, we all know exactly what to expect and we've all seen 'Supersize Me'. But, I think that familiarity has indeed led to a contempt, which I for one think is entirely undeserved.

Firstly, and this may be a small point, but have you ever used a card reader that works as quickly as the ones at Mconalds? No, me neither. This is how they all should work! Service points +1.

Secondly, anytime of the night, I can stroll over and get myself a cheap, hot nutritious meal (yea I said nutricious). Even if I am down to my last £1 I can still get something hot and tasty. Service and value points +5 for that !

Thirdly, The food quality beats many restaurant that charge £10-15 for a main course. The mythological nonsense about McDonalds food quality is unjustified. I know some of the local farmers that supply to McDonalds, and its the same place top notch restaurants get their produce. These guys have got their recipes absolutely down. They know how to learn from their experience, and since they serve millions of customers a year, their experience is pretty damn vast.

Finally, If there is anything whatsoever wrong with your food, they don't even waste your time checking. They just give you an instant replacement or offer a refund. How many restaurants do that?

Fine dining no. Value for money...hell yes !!!

“If you can make it to ordering...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

It's easy to locate the Mcdonalds on this street - you'll find an array of foreign exchange students - flooding over the pavement onto the middle of the road, so you have to fight past the mountain of backpacks and stumble over many a converse trainer to actually get inside the establishment. They fly all the way to England and get Mcdonalds. Wow. Anyway, once you do manage to get inside, however, you then have to join the pointless queue that always seems to form right down the middle of the shop despite the fact there are many other shorter queues on either side available. If you dare to scoot over to a shorter queue - be prepared to get side-eyed by a chav.

Once you actually get to ordering, pat yourself on the back, you made it. The staff, I have found, have always been very friendly and efficient despite having to work in what looks like hells gates filled with hungry and passive-aggressive lemmings. Food wise nice enough and what you can expect from a good Mcdonalds. Reccomended.
