he doesn't like McDonalds cheeseburgers.
how we laughed.
i immediately thought of you virgins.
wait...whichever one's more insulting.
most mcdonalds stuff tastes like vinegar
Given up smoking and my gf made the mistake of saying this meant i could eat as unhealthily as i liked for a bit. ate a big mac, tasted of vinegar. how i pined for a BK.
once you notice it can never be unnoticed
it was just one of those times where they manage to get everything just right.
Quarter Pounder was great, burger slap bang in the middle of the bun...cheese centrally located, not too much ketchup, onions diced nicely.
Fries were nice and crisp, just the right amount of salt on them.
Coke was properly carbonated with a decent syrup mix.
Rownhams Services night shift crew FTW.
but the "nothing better" is nullified by sex
I always get a double cheeseburger for guaranteed satisfaction.
They don't taste bad but can understand why people would be turned off by them.
I want a burger no
i overheard a great conversation between two posh vicars daughters. one had never had mcdonalds till she was 21 and her gang ordered '20 burgers and 20 chips' and tried to tip them (being socially incompetent is ok if you're rich)
the other had only first tried them while travelling and was immediately sick upon consumption of some mcdonalds fries.
oxford uni students
can't remember exactly but it was definitely a priesty dad
thanks for your input, though.
If the Burger King assistant to the regional manager had overheard,you lot would have been in all sorts of trouble.
it's probably a bit of an urban myth, but McD's branch managers are apparently pretty well paid, right? probably bollocks, but i heard up to £32k a year with bonusses. still, you'd die inside if anyone ever saw you, eh?
just from eating the food every day for their lunch and tea. That's why they get paid so much, it seems.
so ignore it.
or is it just the indie think to think/say so?
but I'm a bit dubious as to some of the facts- was never meant to be a scientific study as much as a sociological one. 'The last 8 CEOs' is clearly bull to be honest, I doubt anyone has established more than a casual link between their job and their early death. They're hardly in the line of fire every day.
Graduates start on 40k (goes up to >60k after a few years) + get a free Audi. Dunno if anyone ever lasts long though.
do you mean regional managers?
the point is that to be a McD's manager (which you were talking about) I think you have to have flipped burgers for a few years and worked your way up earning minimum wage, whereas the Aldi thing is a graduate position requiring no experience and with a starting salary of 40k and a free car which is what I pretty much said.
made me laugh. Thanks.
still a fair whack. i applied for it but would've had to have moved to milton keynes. nae thanks.
When I was a kid I'd occasionally end up there at birthday parties and I always had the Mcnuggets because for some reason I was under the impression burgers were really evil but chicken nuggets were fine.
I remember them looking incredibly unappetising. There is also the small business of having to go inside a McDonalds to purchase one too, which seems like something people over the age of 17 should be a bit ashamed of
i don't really eat chick nuggets, tbh. filled with all sorts of horrible shite, apparently.
sure you used to get the option of 6,9 or 20. Frankly, 6 just isn't enough.
don't know where you've been looking if you haven't seen 9.
in Bournemouth, Poole, Exeter, Bristol, Plymouth, Oxford, Southampton, London, Brighton and Reading.
i wonder if stores are just not selling them. it's a fixed item, should be everywhere
main stores all have stock of the 9 nugget box. they're all just fobbing you off
has anyone got anything to report re:mixed berry Starburst milkshake yet?
it was ok, quite a weak flavour but alright
cold feel my tooth enamel melting
Would really prefer just about any other fast food than McDonalds, but if you've got no choice about it, then a cheeseburger minus pickles and a large fries is pretty much the only way to go. They're tolerable, but hardly tasty.
265 indie points.
anyone who removes the gherkin is a monster, imho.
(How many indie points do I get for that, and can you give me a running total please?)
I used to eat cheeseburgers reasonably regularly when I was a spotty adolescent, and I always ordered them with no pickle, and far too often the lazy shit on cheeseburger duty would try unwrapping a cheeseburger, pulling it apart, removing the pickle, putting it together again and rewrapping it, as though I were just too lazy to remove it myself.
As soon as I took a bite, though, I could tell straight away, because that vinegary flavour permeates the whole thing. I'd take it up to the counter, open the burger and show the clear indent in the cheese where a pickle once was and get them to make me a fresh one.
Why the fuck wouldn't I? I was a student with nothing much pressing on my time.
coz if you worked in McDs you'd take real pride in your job, not like that spotty kid
not wanting to eat food that's been scientifically proven to have the nutritional value of playdough is seen on here (by many) as some sign of social snobbery/indie bellendry.
if you have a healthy diet otherwise, eating food 'for the nutrients' and not because 'it tastes fucking lovely and once doesn't matter', is a shit thing to a) do or b) talk about doing.
or, at least, personal variation.
anyone who willfully hands money over to strangers can call anyone a pansy.
with the bacon and the garlicy cheese sauce stuff? Super good.
That new box with 10 onion rings and 10 nuggets is genius.
which is fine by me
might have to try this even though their cheese and bacon are both abominations
so is better than the usual plasticy stuff.
Also, ordering one without salad (or without whatever)is the only way to get one that hasn't been left out for half an hour.
It's great. Works pretty well with the burgers too.
On the whole though, I agree with whoever said the problem isn't the food so much as having to go into McDonald's to buy it. Not so bad if you just resolutely stare at the floor, but as soon as you look around a bit, suidical depression comes rushing upon you with teeth & claws.
But the drive-thru is out of the question. That shit will stink out your car for a week.
And Chicken Selects suck Filet O' Fish's righteous salty balls
that pretty much forces you to enjoy eating it and crave more immediately after? Not sure it's physiologically possible to eat a McDonald's cheeseburger and not immediately want another one.
am i right?
5 x chicken selects
2 x dips (sweet chilli & sour cream n chive)
1 x large fries
1 x chocolate shake
(2 x recommended daily calorie intake at one meal!)
and one of the meals is 'England Fish & Chips'. Bit silly, why would anyone want to buy fish and chips at McDonald's when you can buy much better and cheaper fish and chips around the corner?
apart from kebab shops that also sell soggy flaps of fish with fries
Where should I be looking?
not even a sit-down restaurant either, just a normal chippy job.
average in the leafy, middle-class suburbs of Manchester is around £4.
London and Manchester, both of which I have extensive takeaway experience in, serve super shabby fish and chips.
I had fish and chips in Aberystwyth a couple of weeks ago and it was fucking delicious. Think it cost about £6. £4 fish and chips aint gonna taste good anywhere.
there's some very dodgy Fish and Chip shops in Abersystwyth. You need to pick the right ones to get decent food.
Its not a cheap take away inside London. Last time we had it we had 1 large chips, 1 small chips, 2 cod, mushy peas, 2 cans of drink....came to about £20!
what did you order?
and there's a fish & chip store on every corner
Always a disappointment when you get one which is the burger equivalent of a rhombus which has been all flattened and mangled, though.
But if I did eat it It'd be 2 double cheese burgers and fries and no dicking about.
nobody would eat that filth. The fact it's been around for yonks, everyone knows the deal and will happily scoff it.
burgers with an egg on the top in a bun!
i love reading the mcdonalds threads
and eating your bodyweight in double cheeseburgers*
*There clearly are things better than that to do after a night out, but idk, it's up there.
the cheese is not cheese, i hate that melted platis gunk.
i like big macs and mcchicken sandiwches tho
should have said, i get it without cheese. this has the added bonus of ensuring the burger is freshly made rather thamn eating something that's been sat on a hotplate for 20 minutes.
When you're liek "Deal me wunna dem double cheeseburgers yeh?" and you get it and there's cheese leaking out of the side and into the box and it's like half-runny, half-solidified and fucking everywhere oh fuck. my. BOOTS that's the shit. ACTUAL heaven.
and then you eat it off the wrapper
I don't eat there regularly, about once a fortnight, usually after a night out. But when I do, oh my word. Its so salty and uhh. I really want some now.
I really enjoy nice expensive and well made food but sometimes, you just want to shove 5 chicken selects and a large portion of fries into your gob.
I also like dipping the fries into a chocolate milkshake. Deal with it.
now I love the pickle. whats up with that?
younger. Something about your pallet becoming less sensitive as you get older. Either that or I'm just a lazy cow.
'deal with it'?
is a favourite
Deal with it.
I don't do it with a whole portion of chips but just a few. Its a nice mix of sweet & salty AND cold & hot.
mmm...I'd like that now.
Never had a McDonalds shake though. Or a "McFlurry" or whatever the fuck those things are.
Do you guys have a burger option with beetroot? In Australia they do an "Aussie burger" (yes, yes, I know) that has beetroot on it. It's excellent.
Why anyone would want to stick it in a burger is beyond me.
where they have beetroot and egg in it. Madness I tell ya.
Thats not. It would be if it was like a proper restaurant but its like a fast food place...same as like Pret or Itsu...I say I eat at Pret or Itsu regularly (twice/three times a week maybe). I eat McDonalds sporadically (is that the same?)
Move along guys... and check out KiK's sweet photobucket album again on your way.
if its hourly, daily, monthly, yearly... every fortnight...
You filthy mouth breather.
I may have to reevaluate.
Stella and a banana.
Stella. And. A. Banana.
every single time this gets bumped i end up laughing for about an hour afterwards
and the plates.
Some real care shown with the plating up, there. Very manly.
3 fudge and milk
All I know is that it's fucking hilarious/brilliant
i used to eat them all the time and they were delicious. Once i started eating healthy and cut all the salt and sugar out my diet not only did the cravings go away but even the thought of eating one seems disgusting.
Plus when you go in there it smells and theres always tinks about making it feel a bit grubby.
Does anyone else see McDonalds as basically a public toilet?
Out shopping and there's no public loo about, always start looking for a McDonalds.
I'm not too snobby to eat a Maccy D's. But there's usually better grub about, like.
I'll go int there to piss far more than I do to buy food.
I buy McDonalds once in a while when there's not much else about but honestly, if you think it's anywhere near the best cheeseburger you can get, I strongly recommend going out and eating more cheeseburgers.
It's the combination of taste and value that make McDonalds the go to place for a quick fix of cheap, tasty meat.
and stand about looking at the big menu on the wall for a few seconds pretending to look for something. in starbucks and cafe nero I ask "is soya milk extra?" and when they tell me it is, I leave. In Costa, I normally just fork out for a tall americano.
then i sigh, go to the toilet and when i come out i look around again, then go out of the door still turning my head from side to side. the queen of sly, i am.
The act of using the public restroom in a fast food restaurant without purchasing any food. When challenged by a suspicious manager, the assurance of a subsequent purchase of said fast food is known as a "McShit with Lies".
I could see a fingermark on the top of the bun and it wasn't mine. I managed to eat around it.
we got some Maccas takeaway because it was the only thing in town that was open. My missus was chewing her burger with a puzzled look on her face, then she put it down and took it apart. The egg on the burger had been cooked with some sort of silicone ring around it (that's how they get them so neat & disc shaped), but the silicone ring had melted and was now sort of fused with the egg. She'd eaten half of it.
she got the Kiwi Burger right? How they miss these kind of things, I don't know. The other day I got a McChicken that was missing the bottom bun, the "heel" I think they call it. How the fuck does one "forget" the bottom bun? The staff were as confused as I was.
feel like stabbing people who don't like gherkins.
And a chicken sandwich meal.
Gonna do that again.
they are shit, always very dry
The Double Cheeseburger is a great desert to the main meal though, I'm glad we all agree
