McD's and the other fast food places have become overpriced disgusting globs of what they consider food.
They use to cook the food fresh, now it's microwaved. Portions have shrunk, have become tasteless. I rarely go to a fast food place anymore.

McDonalds originally had a quality control program second to none. The quality of the food and the service was extremely good, no matter which McDonalds you went to. Now it's hit or miss, every once in awhile you'll get a Big Mac that someone put together carefully, on a non-greasy bun, with all the internal parts, well internal instead of slathered around, and fresh hot fries. I would say that happens about 1 in 20 times.

They need to rename the Big Mac the Little Mac, considering how much smaller it is.

McD has lost its touch years ago. there are literally dozens of fast food chains with better offerings on their menus. The design and service part of getting fast food is actually crucial, and judging by the competition, McDonald's is getting too old.
