I do. Twice a year. But how many do that more often? Curious.

Havre not been at Mc's since ??????? ...I can't recall ...I am not into " fast foods " ...but don't hold it against me , please :) ...an age thing ??

the last time I ate at a McDonald's is when I took a Greyhound trip from Minnesota to Virginia. I love bus travel, but hate their food stops.

Taking a bus from Minnesota to Virginia takes guts. I took one during my college years from Iowa City to Cincinnati and back for a job interview. Wretched. I didn't get the job, either. I was never so glad to be back in Iowa City. (On another note, I'm glad to see someone from Moorhead. I grew up in Fergus Falls, took many shopping trips to Fargo-Moorhead.)

Only when the McRib makes an apperance! LOL! Other than that not at all.

That's when I return also. Once upon a time before the big D I worked there. It was high school. The mcrib was invented and I always have one. Recalling washing mcrib pans til 3 am.

I worked for Burger King at one time. Hey at that time we were rivals. HA!

We let our daughter eat their still....we get a hamburger and salad. Some times we split fries. My kids have grown to love salads so that helps a lot.

Same here. I have this notion that if I deny my kids this type of food the second they get a chance to choose on their own they will go overboard. We try not to make going there a big deal even if they only get it 1-2 times per month. Any other times we don't want to cook we try to hit up Subway or some other place where you at least have a 50% chance of choosing something at least marginally healthy .

Lol I work there. Since I'm not one to give up free food, I eat McDonald's at least 5 times a week. (you get a free meal if you work a 4+ hour shift) Probably not the best of ideas... but at least I'm the same weight that I was before getting this job!

Yuk! NO! I can't eat their tasteless food, besides which you don't know which part of the animal the 'meat' comes from.

No, not since our Kids were about 13 y/o, I guess.

Only when I am in a rush or cannot find anything/anywhere else to eat, such as when I am in an area or locale with which I am unfamiliar... I generally get a salad and consult the Calorie King book for carb count info. Maybe 5-6 times a year.

God Bless,
