I am a Starbucks lover, a Chick-Fil-A fan, and a father of 2 teens. I end up at these 3 places quite often. All 3 are a marvel of operational efficiency. What other companies are as well run or close to as well run as those places?
In N Out
Where does McD’s fit into this?
FTR, I don’t see every McD’s run at the same level of efficiency that I’ve seen with Starbucks & Chick-Fil-A.
I think we need to revive the Upscale Restuarant thread!!!
The McD near me is old and dirty and slow. But it IS one of the earlier McD’s, so I thought it might be an outlier.
The McDonald’s nearest to me is super busy. 4 years ago they closed it, tore it down, rebuilt a brand new McDonald’s, then reopened the new one in 32 days.
Poor Nick has to be content with McD’s, with their frozen patties and pre-cut frozen fries.
I waited forever at the Chick-fil-A last Sunday. Finally I just left.
I have no hate towards McD.
Big Mac is still one of the best burger inventions periodT
I was in Peru for a month, eating in people’s houses, without any gastro-intestinal problems. Then I had the opportunity to go to a McD’s and have a Big Mac, and the problems started. Granted - fast food in Peru… Still, it soured me a bit on the Big Mac.
Personally - in my opinion the best fast food burger is the Whopper.
Yes. Big Mac and Whopper are the best burgers invented ever. Not even in just the fast food category. In the burger category period
Yet - my favorite fast food place to go to is Wendy’s. I’m not entirely sure I can articulate why, but if there is a Wendy’s around, I’ll opt for it.
The service has been so atrocious at my nearby Wendy’s that I will never go back there.
On the flip side, Taco Bell and Arby’s are the least efficient, near me. Arby’s is worth the wait once in a while, but Taco Bell never is.
I like visiting my local Wendy’s, Arby’s and Chick-Fil-A. The service is good and the food is predictable. I haven’t been to McDonalds nor Burger King for years. Neither the service nor food was any good.
I think my favorite fast food is kentucky fried chicken. (Or other fried chicken places, but that’s been the most accessible to me.)
I’ll admit I’ve only tried it once, but I waited forever for the food after I ordered there.
I quite like KFC. While I accept that it absolutely is fast food - it feels like it’s something more.
I practically lived at Starbucks before the lockdown. **** COVID!!!
When I lived in Florida, I loved What-A-Burger. I think they prepared burgers with the least # of errors in comparison to McDs and BK, as it was more build your own burger.
