McDonalds - I just don't get it

Yes, that does sound daft. I tried them over there too and it's the same rubbish we get here. See also McD, Whataburger, JackInaBox, Sonic, Wendy's, Five Guys etc...the list of crap sellers is enormous. Tried them all to see if you could get a decent burger in any of the burger chains. Not one decent.
Five Guys is OK, as is Supa-Dupa Burger (which I think is just a Bay area thing). I also don't mind In-N-Out (another California / South Western chain) but I think it was never going to live up the the hype I'd heard about it.
 
When we were in japan for 3 weeks eating some very unusual food we came across a 'Wendys 'it was the best burger and chips i have ever had, served with an ice cold beer and brought to the table freshly cooked by a lovely young Japanese waitress.
 
There's a five guys in Wood Green. I've never seen more than one person in there. Mind you they probably only need to sell about three a week to break even.

The greatest ever burger chain is TJs burgers in Leicester. When that shop blew up a year back I noticed it was next to a TJs burgers. I used to live off their blue cheeseburgers.

Oddly I'm a big fan of five guys, again it's because the food tastes good because it's so incredibly bad for you. I think five guys counts towards your 5 a day. as minus 3
 
Wendy's used to be a major cut above the rest in US, but in fairness I haven't been over for a few years now - not that I remotely miss the place.
 
It's not pretentious in the slightest to suggest people should eat healthy. It's pretentious to almost look down on people for enjoying eating at places like Macdonalds though, and whether you want to admit it or not, some people do.
The same preeching dogooders wouldn't criticise anyone for eating at pizza express.

Your hypocrisy knows no bounds SmallTown
Woah, steady there fella. I've had, like three five guys in the past year.

Moderation matey moderation. I was complaining about people queueing for McDees or eating them regularly. Relax, you'll give yourself a heart attack. If your diet doesn't do it for you!

I take very good care of myself thank you.
