I had my free cheeseburger today using the McDonalds app, no ketchup, no mustard, extra onion, extra pickles, extra shredded lettuce, it was the best one I have ever had, I love a freebie

We still see a takeaway as a "treat" (although I wouldn't normally class them as that particular word, more just a night-off from cooking) and have a pretty hard rule of no more than 1 or 2 per month.

Trouble with most takeaways are that I feel pretty disgusting after eating them. Greasy Chinese and oily curries are the worst for that, blurgh.

I have similar. Though I remove the pickles, onion and lettuce. Basically. Bun, burger and cheese.

Never had a problem with dryness. There's tons of grease in the meat.

I don't get changes because I'm not a fussy child.

I'd just cba with waiting for them to make the alterations.

After a night of drinking with a vegetarian mate she got a McDonald's cheeseburger without the burger. Looked strawberry floating dreadful.

Asking for exactly what you want = child

Doing exactly what McDonald’s tell you = adult

Getting stuff altered = fresh burger
Getting stock burger = it’s been sitting for days

Well you don't go to Maccy D's for haute cuisine now, do you? You go for a patty of beef arseholes with plastic cheese.

We had an Indian this evening and used a 15% off voucher for just eat, it was half an hour late, the jalfrezi was dry, naan was crispy and everything else tasteless

No one should be using an affectionate nickname for McDonald's.

Better off with a Spice Tailor meal kit and a naan bread from Waitrose.

McDonald's has brought a lot of joy to my life.

Always get the burger how it comes, because I like everything :datass:.

Maccy's :wub:

McDonald's have properly stepped their game up in the last decade, I think their meat is properly the best quality of the big fast food chains now.

Been surviving off toast and soup for a few days due to hospital visits etc.

Bex was out tonight and on the way home I stopped at the McDonald's drive through... Lusting for greasy meat and cheese.

I went a bit overboard.. there's still some in the fridge to he eaten today :oops:

  • Large quarter pounder meal
  • Three double cheeseburgers
  • 20 box of nuggets
  • Mcflurry


The fact the double cheeseburgers are still in the fridge tells you that I went well over the top. :fp: :oops:
