I live in n..Mississippi. Any of their standard item meals with 7% tax are over 10$. 2019 before covid the same thing was 6.50$ all in.My wife and I took my two grandsons to McD’s in St. Pete for a quick lunch Sunday and it cost $32 … I remarked that it would have cost ~$15 when their mother was their age, and ~$6.00 when we were their age …
The last time I was in a McDonalds was Jan 1991. I had gotten mobilized for Desert Storm and we had left Barksdale AFB, (Shreveport, La) on the way to SanAntonio. I hitched a ride in a private vehicle with a bunch of other guys. We were going through the town where I lived, stopped there and got my wife to run over at the McDonalds about two blocks from the hospital where we both worked, for a quick cup of coffee.I don't think I've intentionally eaten their garbage in the last 20 years and have no plans to. There's plenty of other options ... doing without would be one of my personal choices, if necessary.
I stopped by the localMcDs to get some calories in me before a bow shoot last weekend. I got the sandwich but passed on the $1.99 3 ounces hash browns.So, who's going to be the first morally superior Forum member who will say something like: I havn't be to a McDonald's since '42 and I've never felt better! Just like TV threads...3-2-1... LOL
I've heard that McDonald's prices are ridiculous now. The only thing I've bought at McD's in the last few years was a large coffee and I didn't look at the menu. So, last night I decided to look up what certain things cost at my local McD's now.
Big Mac: $5.79
Egg McMuffin: $5.79
Large soft drink: $3.59
Big Mac combo with medium drink and medium fries: $11.89
Simple tiny cheesburger: $3.49
Simple tiny hamburger we knew as 15¢ back in the day: $3.39
I don't look at McD's parking lot and drive thru lines, but I'll bet people are lined up to pay these prices! 2 adults and 2 kids would push $40+
I don't blame them for charging this much if people are willing to pay it. I think I'll get my large coffee somewhere else just on principal. They won't miss me
