    What’s the deal on the turnpike one opening or not opening?

    Are they bringing back the Egg and Cheese Bagel? I really enjoyed it but haven’t seen it at any location for a couple of years now. It is listed in the press release so here’s hoping.

    Really? McDonalds, Restaurant Guy???
    Not good – not local – not a joke?
    Your credibility just nose dived…

    I like how they keep repeating the word “freshly grilled”. I don’t believe anything is ever fresh or cooked to order, which is why it is fast, but not tasty.

      I worked at McDonalds and we cracked fresh eggs right on the grill with a little oil and made the sandwiches. It was typically six or twelve at a time due to the ring thing. The muffins would go in a toaster. Sometimes I’d give the canadian bacon a bit longer on the grill just to crips it up a bit more. Butter on the bottom muffin, then the egg, the cheese and the bacon then top it off. Yes…we made them fresh, but not to order. Not sure how they make them now…30 years later.

    Allegedly if you ask for a “round egg substitute” they will
    cook an egg fresh for you. Will it apply to a yoke-less egg?
    Doubtful but for me the yoke is the best part. Source:

    I can only imagine how long these lines are going to be for a free sandwich, probably just as bad as when people line up on baskin robbins free cone day.
