Remember when I had the bad sandwich from the local McDonald’s? I tried to put the experience behind me, but I subsequently went back, hoping against hope that my experience was atypical, that I could out-guess the system they had for putting out sandwiches that sat under the drying heat lamps too long…!
Oh, you idealistic, forgiving fool, Douglas! Read below the review I left on the store’s internet link.
All too often, I get a dried out piece of crap. Just last night, I ordered a quarter pounder with cheese. The bun was dried out to the point I couldn’t eat it. My supper was a hamburger pattie.
I like their crispy buttermilk chicken sandwich…IF it is fresh! A fresh one is very tasty, a good value. The last (and I mean the very last one ever…!) I bought was so horrificly bad, I photographed it and featured it on my blog as a warning to anyone thinking about ordering this sandwich at this store.
I hate to speak unkindly about the place, but there is a pattern of selling dried out sandwiches that should be pulled and tossed instead of sold to unsuspecting customers.
I haven’t even touched on another issue with that store: How many times I was handed either the wrong order or a meal that was supposed to come with fries (and I certainly paid for the fries!) but came without any.
“You should contact the 800 number on their take out window,” people said. Well, from the looks of the complaints on this site, little if anything happens when you do.
Caveat emptor: Order food at the Alliance, Nebraska, McDonald’s with the understanding you may not be able to eat what they serve.
The shame of it is this used to be a very decent store. When Martin and his wife had it, you got a tasty meal in a timely manner, served by friendly staff. The current take out staff range from really top notch to barely civil.
