The McWrap won't change anything.

The problem is the terrible and expensive food.

McDonald's food has been going downhill for decades.  It is as processed and artificial as a Twinkie.  There's a reason why In'n'Out is packed and McDonald's isn't.

Around here, a Big Mac combo is around $7.50-$8.00 with tax.  There's a local Chinese place where you get a big plate of rice and two fresh entrees for $5.25.  A local Mexican place serves huge burritos loaded with fresh toppings for $5.  Why pay more for something that isn't all that good?

Yeah, this.  You can find inexpensive, fast, fresh, local food just about anywhere now, usually provided by recent immigrants in their own traditional cuisines.  And it is farking AWESOME.  Even here in the wastes of northern Canada, I have, within 15 minutes of the house, Chinese, Japanese, Lebanese, generalized Central American, Indian (Bengali) and Moroccan restaurants.  All cheap, all good, all run by recent arrivals to Canada.  Why in hell would I go to McDonald's or KFC when I can get a huge bowl of Udon wth veggies, chicken and greens for less than the price of a value meal?

McDonald's is trading at its 52 week high, thanks to people with no taste buds like gingerjet.

For all others who want grease that tastes good, there's

This is what happens when you have old people try to use "hip lingo". They get it wrong and wind up screwing the cheeseburger.

I don't care what you say, McDonalds is the best deal for a nice greasy breakfast out there. The sausage egg and cheese McGriddle and a $1 large coffee may as well be crack, I ain't right if I don't get my medicine....

Fast food chain restaurants I prefer over McDonalds (in no particular order):

Arby's
Wendy's
Five Guys
Steak and Shake
Dairy Queen
Subway
Zaxby's
Q'doba
Chipotle
Little Caesar's
Panera
Jason's Deli

So McDonald's doesn't even break my top 10 fast food chains, let alone all chain restaurants.  Speaking of chain restaurants, the Ruby Tuesday near where I used to live in Nashville always had some great burgers.  They tasted like fresh ground beef, unlike the Chili's, Applebees, or TGIFs near where I lived.

I wouldn't rank McDonalds because it's crap.  Not because of social relevancy.  I'd say the fact that McDonalds ranks number one overall, but doesn't even register top 10 with Millennials, says more about everybody else's lack of taste than it does Millinneals'.

If you want "fast" food at a good price, eat locally and get to know the people who run the places.  Just call ahead when you're on your way and place your order, so it's ready when you get there.  Most places are totally cool with phone-ahead orders.

In short:

Olive Garden
Chili's
Red Lobster
Applebee's
Outback
Texas Roadhouse
Cheesecake Factory TGI Friday's
Roadhouse
Ruby Tuesday
Red Robin
Panera Bread

/Olive Garden? Seriously?  Is that some sort of hipster ironic thing?

Nobody gives a shiat about the millenials.  They have no jobs, no future, no money, nothing going for them.  Fark them.  They're not economically viable.

Honestly I think the cuttoff should be around 1985 or 1986.  As someone born in 1983 I have way more in common with people born a few years before me than a few years after me.  Our cultural touchstones are totally different.

Or better yet, the cuttoff should be:  Was your first experience online a BBS or the internet?  If it was BBS you are pre-Millennial, if it was the internet you are Millennial.

GAT_00: I could have sworn millennials cut off at the earliest at 1990, not 1975.

Oh, and was it too hard to include the farking list?


75 sounds a little early, but 90 is late. Wikipedia says it's fuzzy, but tosses out latter 70s or early 80s to 2000 . Which makes sense. We called them millenials because the oldest of them were supposed to start becoming useful people around the turn of the millenium.
