This is a review of McDonalds at Liverpool Street Station in London and it is part of a nationwide and global chain of fast food restaurants.
As with all McDonalds, the crux of their business is selling hamburgers and chips, you can also buy coffee and tea, soft drinks, muffins filled with egg and bacon and heated sandwiches.
This restaurant is set on the first floor of Liverpool Street Station, it is always incredibly busy and has seating for about 40 people, it is a great place to go especially for hungry people anticipating long train journeys.
I have to be honest, I don't like McDonalds burgers, they are limp and lifeless and not a patch on those at Gourmet Burger Kitchen and other quality burger stores, the fries are thin and limp and salty, again they are more of a last resort than a good meal.
Prices range from £1 for some basics such as a cheeseburger or a dessert to £5 for a burger, fries and drink meal, there is a wide range of options and the only one I really like is the fillet o fish which is a fishcake in a sandwich with mayo. This costs £1.69.
So you know I don't rate the food, being honest it is also incredibly bad for you, its unhealthy and at least a quarter of your daily calorie intake for one burger. It has been shown in documentaries how regular use of these foods is bad for you, I always felt the best thing about McDonalds was the service but on two occasions recently I have left as I have found staff are either incompetent or trying it on.
On evenings after 8pm, the place does become a beacon for people who've had a few drinks in town getting substinence for a long journey home, i've popped in on two occasions sober, and asked for items having checked the price list in advance only for a staff member to try and charge me more, I can only presume he either felt that anybody buying a burger at 11pm would be incoherent or he couldn't count but I refused to pay and referred him to the price list and asked to see his manager, unfortunately apparently none was available and he had no answer for his individual pricing policy.
Unfortunately experiences like this do make you not want to go again and purely because of this, i've accepted that McDonalds is a wasteful, poorly produced last resort and not worth my effort, so I will no longer go in there, i'd rather save my pennies and buy something more substantial like an apple!
