Got a beef
 
We have talked about other restaurants before here but what about this? We used to go to McDonald's on airline drive. Just about everytime we ordered, our order was wrong. They would replace the items that was wrong. Last friday we ordered supper there and took it home. When we got home we found our order was wrong again, so we called them. They said they would replace it and for us to save our ticket to bring in when we came. So monday we went to get lunch, we were going to get what they owed us plus buy more. The manager said since they had trouble with our order several times for us to not come back there to eat. I ask him what are we suppose to do when our order is wrong, not call, he said no go eat somewhere else. I told him the problem is not us it is with his workers not doing their job right. Here is what we ordered: a kids cheeseburger pickles only, not hard to make but they can't seem to understand to put the cheese on it. Next a kids cheesburger plain, meat, bread and cheese, another hard order uh but it comes back with everything on it. Then there is also 2 double cheeseburgers plain and no cheese, [you have to order it that way because they don't have double hamburgers on the menu] but they still put the cheese on it. Then we have a hamburger, ketsup only, hard to make, so they put everything on it. So they ask us to go somewhere else to eat, fine there is Burger King and I can have it my way! You don't run your customers off because your workers can't do their job right.

He's right, if you're ordering in such a weird way go somewhere else. McDonalds is designed for people that want a standard menu in a hurry.

That said, I can't believe he would tell you not to come back. You should tell corporate about it:

1-800-244-6227

or

how odd.. but what do you expect from freakin' McDonalds.. the one on the corner of hwy 1 and old mooringsport rd, screws up orders all the freakin' time. when they do, I'm not surprised.. sometimes in life, you DO get what you PAY for. :)

Happy Wednesday.

I have not had a meal from Mickey Ds in over ten years. The only way they hire people is if they fail the IQ test :laugh:

We did call corporate but thanks anyway. All they said is they would forward this on to the franchisded owners who we have already talked too. So that is usless, as for the ordering it is not done in a weird way, the workers are just too stupid to understand the order. While we were there monday the manager told them to fix the 2 double cheeseburgers plain with no cheese. the cook kept trying to put cheese on them. The manager finally told the cook look I need a bun with 2 pieces of meat and nothing else. Even after that he still said not to come back. Their idiots.

Latenight, I stop at that McDonalds about twice a week after workouts (No, Isaac, it's not for me!) to get little boy Belle his two snack wraps crispy without lettuce. They haven't messed our order up yet. You must be placing lots of difficult orders like Pie. Careful doing that, you might get asked not to come back!!!!!!!:D

Seriously, though, it's low income wage earners without probably lower than average IQ's more often than not so you shouldn't expect great service. If you are looking for great service, try Superior Steakhouse!

I only eat breakfast at McDonalds. I always order the same thing, a sausage bisquit meal with a small coke. Cost is $3.04.

So there is this new girl at my location and although I order a SMALL coke, she ignores me and rings up a med at $3.38. I don't need that much coke and also the taller cup is too top heavy for my cup holder. Not to mention that I would like to save 34 cents instead of throwing it away.

So I got into it with her the other day. She said the meal only comes with a med drink! I told her I have ordered this same order many times with no problem. She is the problem. I think either she doesn't know how to use their terminal or she is too lazy to back out the med drink and add a small one. But today I got my small coke for the first time from this particular girl. She even smiled for a change. What's up with that? I wanna fight! :D

Oh Rhertz , don't fight with the girl just be greatful for the attention you are getting!!!!!!

I don't really think my ordering is too difficult when you ask for plain burgers, it's not hard to throw a piece of meat between 2 buns.:D

Now that just depends on which buns you are trying to throw a piece of meat between :eek:

Hey I used to eat gas station food all the time. There was a Texaco station at the corner of Linwood and the industrial loop that had the best fried chicken (maybe they still do). They also had huge potato planks dipped in batter and fried like chicken. Those were awesome. But I'm trying to eat more healthy....
