McDonald’s Review 8/12 – Fishers

August 12, 2009

Restaurant: McDonald’s
Location: Fishers, IN
Address: 8907 E. 116th Street  Fishers, IN 46038  Map This on MapQuest
Menu: McDonald’s Menu
Type: Fast Food American
Loyalty Program: None Known
Today’s Meal: Angus Third Pounder Deluxe, Fries, Soft Drink
Cost: $6.30

I drove through the drive-thru today and noticed on the sign the different new third pound Angus burgers that McDonald’s is serving.  I decided to try one since they had looked pretty good on commercials and had been curious.  The drive-thru experience was predictably top-notch here.  They usually get your order pretty quickly as well as take your money and serve you your meal.  I ate the fries on the way home, which were really good and hot.  Then, when I got home, I had the Angus burger.  The deluxe has mayo, mustard, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles and cheese.  I must say that I was disappointed in the taste of this burger.  It just didn’t have the zing-factor that I like in a burger.  There was nothing special about it.  While it wasn’t terrible, I felt like I just ate it because it was there.  It was obvious that this burger contained more meat than the patties that are on a Big Mac or McDonald’s cheeseburger.  It was definitely a more significant type burger that you think of when you think of a ‘burger’.  However, I can think of a lot of other places that I would rather get a substantial burger from if I was in a mood for that type of burger.  As for a McDonald’s meal, I’ll stick with the cheeseburger or Big Mac.

Five Guys Burgers 8/9 – Noblesville

Today’s Meal: Single Cheeseburger
Cost: $4.25

This Five Guys is located in Hamilton Town Center.  I walked into this Five Guys location and glanced at the slim offerings on the menu.  Your choices are burgers, hotdogs, grilled cheese, fries, and drinks.  Also on the menu board is the list of all the complimentary toppings that you can get.  After I walked in, I was promptly helped and gave my order of a cheeseburger with six of my favorite toppings.  The server asked if I would like any fries or drink to go with that and gave me my receipt with my order number.  I sat a while for my order, probably about 10 minutes (the restaurant was not too busy on a Sunday evening), and looked around at the decor.  They have a lot of articles posted on the walls about the different stores with reviews and stories.  As I waited, I saw several tables being cleaned off.  The restaurant had a very clean feel.  My number was called, and it was hard to hear the person saying it.  Every time the person would call a number, they would call it towards the wall, so it made it very hard to hear.  They should really come up with a different system here because I think it would have been difficult to hear even if he had been calling towards the customers.  They could give out the numbers to sit on your table or have an electronic number pop up while they call a number.  I ate my cheeseburger, and it made sense as to why the menu was so small.  They make burgers, and they make burgers well.  Wow, this was a delicious cheeseburger!  It was juicy, and it had such good flavor.  I am already thinking of when I will go back to get this cheeseburger again!
