I just got back from a 2 week self-imposed project where I ate nothing but McDonald's and Burger King for 3 meals a day. The first week I ate McDonald's, the second week I ate Burger King. I never ate the same thing twice. I won't tell you everything I ate because we all know what they serve, I'm going to break down the customer service, the atmosphere, and my general happiness level while dining.
Old reliable, been around since the 1880s I think, I'm not sure. Their restaurant is cleaner and more modern than BK's. The one I went to had a McCafe off to the side where all the suits drank their fancy f***ing lattes or whatever. I don't care. I'm a simple man, an old man. I hate most of McDonald's hamburgers so I choked them down, though their fries are top notch.
Anyway, by Thursday, the employees started looking at me weird cause I was going in so much, but luckily I'm somewhat masochistic so I didn't explain what I was doing, I just said "Hi, I'd like some more McDonald's please", and they laughed in my face. Though what they didn't know was that I had a boner the whole time.
Grade - 8/10
I prefer Burger King's burgers because they don't taste like they're loaded with lard, and their fries are almost as good as Macca's, but their establishment is outdated, and their workers are lazy. They don't care about their craft. I once waited literally 12 minutes to get a f***ing Whopper w/cheese meal. This was when there were no other customers in the store. I forgot to mention that I went to this 24 hour Burger King store and ate at really weird times (Breakfast: 4:00, Lunch: 9:30, Dinner: 4:15) because I'm ashamed to be seen eating there. I actually park my car at the Italian restaurant which is opposite.
The Burger King staff are nicer, but more incompetent than the McDonald's staff. It's basically a trade-off. You keep a little more dignity going to BK, but you have to wait longer. The staff at BK didn't laugh in my face, which is a plus.
Grade - 7/10
I prefer BK's food, but McDonald's wins based on their faster ordering process, more competent staff, and they don't have cockroaches in the coffee machine.
