The Chicken Maestro was a bit of an over optimistic name, but the
service was good and i basically got what I expected, which is all you can really ask
of fast food.
Worst Mcd I've ever been to!
Staff do not seem to know what they are doing.
Only plus is that it's 24hr!
I would never have guessed that my first 5* review would be about a fast food restaurant.
Ever had one of those days when you can not be bothered to spend huge amount of money on good food and would rather spend little on good 'junk'? I know I do!
Me and my friend took a trip to Imperial Wharf and Chelsea Harbour (I must say the area is beautiful). We decided to save a a couple of pennies and head to any fast food restaurant. Low and behold we found a McDonald's which is situated in the heart of Wandsworth just right round the corner from the apartment blocks. It is placed nicely in between those lovely little gems.
I was very impressed with the modern decor, the smooth lighting, the pastel colours, it was clean and they have wonderful toilet facilities surprise surprise! It was like a 5 star fast food restaurant.
We was served by a girl who seemed nice, cool and down to earth, a little too down to earth if you ask me! Whilst she was serving my friend, I couldn't help but have a little peak at the back to see if the kitchen was clean and yes it was. lol!
Food I cant complain, fresh buns just the way I like. The area, location and crowd...perfect! No rushing, no shoving and no hearing children screaming. They have outdoor seating too which is perfect for a summer evening with friends and its away from the high street hustle and bustle.
Great review from Chelle and I concur that it is the only really budget place round here where you know what the quality will be like.
However, recently when I've been there have been a few kids, teenagers etc. as a lot of families live in the flats surrounding the area so it's not completely free of the odd baby crying or rowdy teenage group but it's no issue for me and I often enjoy a sunday morning Maccie D's breakfast if I can tear myself out of bed before 10:30am!
This Mc Donalds compares equally with all the other mcDonald's in London. You can buy burgers chips etc etc. The music they play is pretty good and it is overall a clean restaurant, and occasionally they even give out balloons!
The toilets are small but clean and the food tastes like your average McDonalds food. It is free wifi which is good and there is also a nice area that you can eat outside which is really nice- although you can sort of hear alot of traffic.
The drive thru option is also very quick!
One thing to look out for is that some of their food has actually gone up in price- eg Happy Meals have gone up 20p in price :O
Sometimes you need a drive-thru mcdonalds. It's not pretty, it doesn't make you feel good, but god darn if you need hot salty food in a hurry it's so convenient.
This mcdonalds wins no awards for location. Off a four carriage-way road, you're not going to be enjoying your big-mac in the patio garden, and inside you don't want to linger. But we're not here to linger. We want the drive-thru!
Also, it's 24 hours, so anytime of day or night you can shove rubbish food down your throat for little money in the space of time it takes the lights to change green.
And why do I like the bacon and egg mcmuffins so much? Why god?!
If you go here, don't come in the morning. The service is very slow and the queue is very long and it is not because it is so many people queuing, but its only 1 or maximum 2 people serving behind the tills. Get frustrated every morning, but can not say no to my coffee.
This is by far and away the worst McDonald's restaurant in the world. Fact. I thought these places were all the same until I discovered what was my local 24 hour drive-through filthery.
The first thing to note about this place is that if you go there after midnight they only serve what is known as the night menu. This is supposedly a small selection of the basics inluding quarter pounders (no cheese only), big macs, chips and not a hell of a lot else. In actual fact, it's a lot closer to whatever's still sitting around in its own grease since the friers were switched off.
Expect your order to be:
a) Limited to things you don't want
d) burnt and/or frozen
e) put together badly
f) served with a sneer
g) and worst of all, incorrect.
If you are lucky enough to escape some of these problems, you can more or less guarnatee that, at the least, your food will be squashed with all of the ketchup bled out of it.
Depsite this horrendous quality and service, you can expect a minimum of a four-car queue at all times of night but, whatever you do, do not atempt to go inside the restaurant to place your order. Firstly, you'll find it shut. Secondly, you'll find the reason it's shut.
Gangs of youths hang out at this popular nightspot, munching poorly constructed fast-food, just waiting for people to be foolhardy enough to leave their vehicles. There seems to be a certain pride with which the McDonald's at Wandsworth round-a-bout gathered yellow crime sandwich boards. I'm sure I saw an employee actually cleaning them with a duster and a can of Pledge once.
The only postive thing I can tell you about this restaurant is that it is indeed open 24 hours a day, just as they advertise, and, unfortunately, one of the only places in the area where you can get a bite to eat after three in the morning.
Is it possible to give a negative number of stars?
