If I want a aiter I'll go to an upscale place. Like Steak & Shake
2002-10-27 09:47:32 AM  
Can I get like a steak dinner at the Drive-Thru? Because that would be neat.

Waiter, taste the soup.
what's wrong with the soup?
taste the soup.
what's wrong with the soup?
taste the soup.
Ok, I'll taste the soup, where's the spoon?

Ah hah!
2002-10-27 09:50:38 AM  
Yeah, ok which table order the Big Mac and Fries? What do you mean all of them did, whose order does this belong too??

The Burger King near here actually tried this several years ago. I think they got tired of being laughed at.

The free bag of popcorn they gave you while you waited was a nice touch, if kinda odd.

When this makes me fat, I'm going to sue.
2002-10-27 10:21:55 AM  
They did that here at BK in Seattle too Prof. It really doesn't even feel right. Didn't last long at all either.
2002-10-27 10:22:05 AM  

Ahh, whadda you know from funny, you bastards?
2002-10-27 10:23:41 AM  
Would you like an appitizer?
Well we have the Hot apple pie, the McSalad Shaker....
2002-10-27 10:29:16 AM  
No shoes, no shirt, no coat and tie, no service?
2002-10-27 10:29:50 AM  
Just what I need, a bad attitude looking me in the face while I'm trying to eat.
2002-10-27 10:29:52 AM  
"Caution, filling is very hot!"
Mmm... Piee.
2002-10-27 10:33:22 AM  
They have been talking about doing this for about 3 years. About time they got off their fat asses and did it.

Too bad it's far away from CT. I would like to check it out.

Now all they need to do is start taking VISA and let the cash roll in.
2002-10-27 10:33:42 AM  
are they gonna add a buffet bar too?

all you can eat big mac's and chicken nuggets!!!1

Me: "Waiter, we need our drinks refilled."

Pimply-faced kid: "Ehrmm.."

Me: "Our drinks."

Pimply-faced kid: "Would you like them Super Sized?"

Me: "No. No, just a refill."

Pimply-faced kid: "Would you like fries with that?"

Me: "We have fries already, get us our refills, please!"

Pimply-faced kid: "Uhh, I'll have to ask my manager..."

How to impress your date:

Ask if the McNuggets are in season.
2002-10-27 10:38:44 AM  
As long as they have those *awsome* Fruit and Yogurt Parfit's Ill be satisfied.
2002-10-27 10:40:19 AM  
Ask for a 2002 white soda, or ask to see a soft-drink list if you're not sure.

Heh, placing your order over a phone ala A&W style. Wonder if the odds of getting the correct order are better than the drive-thru. Might give it a try since i live in this area.
2002-10-27 10:57:05 AM  
Emc2serv much better odds. They know that you will actually be on the premises when you make the discovery, instead of in the left turn lane on your way to the freeway.
2002-10-27 10:58:45 AM  
NO! I said a hamburger, fries, and a large orange drink! A LARGE ORANGE DRINK!!

2002-10-27 11:02:37 AM  
Lincoln has its fair share of good locally owned restaurants The Oven, Billy's, J.Finnegan's, Misty's, El Salvador yet it's places such as Applebee's, Chili's and Ruby Tuesday that have the waiting lists.

This is exactly the problem. We're a town of less than 150,000 and we're about to get our 3rd Applebee's and 3rd O'Charley's here. Disgusting.
2002-10-27 11:09:11 AM  
I already get table service at McDonald's when the retard that cleans the trays walks up to me in the middle of eating and stares at me...
2002-10-27 11:12:31 AM  
So does this mean that if this actually takes off, that we'll have to sit through commericals with Dan Cortese again?

2002-10-27 11:29:01 AM  
They already do this here. It's called Sonic Drive In. Not technically a table service, unless you count the trays they hang on your car window.
2002-10-27 12:52:33 PM  
Good old Lincoln, always in the news for the wrong reasons...
2002-10-27 12:59:22 PM  
Do you have to clean your own table?
2002-10-27 01:04:52 PM  
...and a side of heart attack please, hold the mayo... lol

as long is i'm not served by some freak with read hair and white face paint
2002-10-27 01:25:53 PM  
What can you expect from an article written by JeffK ?
2002-10-27 01:27:44 PM  
Wasn't this in one of those movies from the early to mid 90s? Futuristic movie that has Mc Donalds as some upscale fancy restaraunt?
2002-10-27 01:29:04 PM  
Verdejester - Demolition man, and it was Taco Bell.
2002-10-27 01:29:42 PM  
You might be thinking of Demolition Man which had Taco Bell as an upscale fancy resturaunt. Taco Bell was the only chain to survive the franchise wars, so now all restaraunts are Taco Bell.
2002-10-27 01:34:15 PM  
The McDonald's near my house does this too. It claims to be the first to do this in the entire world. Their other claim to fame is the "double drive thru window", whatever the hell that is. McDonald's food being so bad I don't patronize the place. But I did once wear my friend's vintage gasmask on the premises and had myself taped frolicking in the playplace.

They're really getting desperate now.
What next, home delivery?
2002-10-27 02:45:47 PM  
Can you still get a Royale with Cheese?

They're good eatin' before you start quotin' passages from Ezekeial.
2002-10-27 03:04:12 PM  
Are you expected to leave a tip? (considering you're doing most of the work yourself...)
2002-10-27 05:39:42 PM  
Hmm... I wonder if they will start taking credit cards. I hope not. This is my only excuse for not eating at the likes of McDonalds while on the road for business.
2002-10-27 09:47:55 PM  
i think that demolition man scenario is pretty accurate, except i always figured it would be wal-mart, who we all know is hooked up with the greedy bastards who own mcdonalds.
soon, after we are born we will either be shipped off to school to learn the skills of intimidating low-level employees, or we'll be issued an official mcnametag and mchairnet.
2002-10-27 11:23:38 PM  
They don't know why profits are dwindleing, I'll tell them why. They need to hire employees who can count. When I go to Mcdonalds I order a #4 meal the double quarter pounder with cheese and on several occations I have gotten hambergers with only 1 patty not 2. I have sent several compaints to them about it but have heard nothing in return
2002-10-28 01:46:12 AM  
customer2:"Hi illd like to order a" *beep*
service assistant:"please hold I have a call on line2"
customer1:"where's my" *beep*
service assistant:"please hold I have a call on line1"
customer2:"what about my order"
service assistant:"sorry sir were very busy please hold the line"

lol goody what fun :o)
