The beginning of the end was when they quit frying the french fries in lard.

You young 'uns have no idea what you missed. They were amazing.

Also, this. Not a restaurant, but interesting none-the-less. Wonder if the inflight meal was a Big Mac and an order of fries?

How about a bank converted to a McDonalds?  Kristiansand, Norway has it and I've been there.

How did the North Pole one make the list? The only thing different is that they have a stripe on the flag pole and a picture of the nearby Santa Clause House. Also 2 places are in there because the arches are a different color. That's a pretty low bar.

Also, am I the only one who was amused by there being a McDonalds in Freiburg (Fry Burger) Germany?

All I remember about that one was that the exchange rate suuuucked at the time. Would have been right after the 2007-2008 crash.

But the usd exchange rate sucked everywhere

Louisville Kentucky.  Stand alone with drive thru and a 2nd floor dining area.

For a while, there was one in a historic building in Lewiston, NY near Niagara Falls.

For operational and traffic flow reasons, the drive through was oriented in a way that put the window on the passenger's side as cars pulled through.  So they conducted transactions using a basket on a pole that they stuck through your car window.

Oddly my first thought was to see if there was a McD's in Helen, GA.  It has a city ordinance that all businesses must be built in Bavarian(southern Germany) style.  Surprisingly there's not one but there is a Wendy's and a Huddle House.

The Riverboat one in St. Louis, and the "racing team" in Batesville, AR could also be added.

Odds are, that DC-3 could be converted back to flight condition. Possibly the greatest plane ever.
