No Tim Horton's in Florida. We have Dunkin Donuts instead.

Depends on where I am, how hungry I am, and the amount of cash in my pocket.

The McD's in Talladega is okay - nothing special, but not terrible, either; occasionally a slightly stale bun.

Not for love or money would I ever step foot in the one off the Acton Road exit. Name a sin at a Fast Food Restaurant and they'll tick the box (if anyone will ever actually pay attention enough to actually notice the person with the form).

The one in Pelham is probably the best, as they always have fresh buns.

McD's sweet tea is the only restaurant sweet tea I'll drink, though I hear Chik-Fil-A has pretty good sweet tea.

Coffee is very uneven between McD's. Pelham's is the best of our local Golden Arches.

The burger is obviously not great, but the Coke is good...

Sometimes the burger isn't bad (at this price point)...

On the rare occasions I'd eat out for breakfast - they're not bad...

What say you all?


I do not care for most of the McDonald's food except I find the french fries rather delicious. I hit up McDonald's for some french fries about once/month.

For fast food fries I actually like the ones from Checkers/Rally much more than the ones from McDonalds.

That reminds me of a coworker several years back. With only 30 minutes for lunch he would always drive to Burger King for his sandwich and then across the street to McDonald's for his fries.


Good move, but way to much effort for me.

I used to love Checkers fries until they started putting MSG in them. Now they'll make me sick if I eat them.

I'd be curious to know more in depth about the causes behind this. Maybe alcohol consumption in the UK overall is declining?


A combination of that (particularly amongst the young) and a number of other factors that contribute to the recent figures of 5 pubs and inn closing in England per week.
Expensive to drink in such an establishment due to large Brewery mark-ups, high tax element and having to compete with cheap booze from supermarkets, often retailed as a loss-leader, though this practice has been prohibited now I believe.

More awareness of health issues with regular drinking. Lunch time down the boozer now seems to be frowned upon and even a gross misconduct offence in the workplace.

Less heavy industry and manual labour that demands fluids to be replaced after a hard shift

More regard for and awareness of our drinking and driving laws, which has added to the problems of many rural establishments. For example, three of my four offspring that have driving licences will not touch a drop if driving, and they are just normal sociable post-grads 23-32, and the same applies to their mates.

Smoking on premises ban. Though mayhap this be balanced by those who prefer not to have to deal with passive smoking whilst drinking.

Equality! Gone are the days when a worker would drink half his pay packet and hand a minimum of his wage to the little wifey at home.

The internet! Why make the effort of going down the boozer to talk bollocks with regulars when one can talk bollocks with others of other locales and nations via TeamSpeak and the like whilst gaming in one's own home!

It is commonly thought over here that drinking is excessive and a problem but when one consider that the small village of 180 souls I lived in had three pubs, (now one) and my nearest city, Worcester in 1921 with a population of 40k had 147 pubs! 14 of them in a small area that is now a multiple retail park.

I'm off to grab a beer after that Panzer smile Would be interesting to read what the situation is Stateside.

Thanks for your reply BD-123. All of your points make sense to me.

I can't really speak on the current status of bars in the US since I myself am a very infrequent drinker (maybe one or two drinks per month).

I love meat, but not so keen on ground beef. It’s a texture thing - nothing to do with flavour as such.
For that reason I avoid burgers. They will be welcomed once I reach a toothless ripe age.
Not there yet biggrin

Cheers,
Slug
