McDonald's in Paw Paw located just off I-94

When I left Lansing this afternoon, I had no intention of eating fast food.  I knew when I left for Champaign, IL at about 1:30, I would have to stop somewhere for lunch before I got to my parents house.  Just to their house, it’s about a four hour drive and Champaign is another hour after that.  I got just passed Kalamazoo and got really, really hungry.  I pulled off in Paw Paw.  Being a county seat, I assumed there would have to be sandwich places near the courthouse.  There were a lot of restaurants, bars, and pubs, but not a whole lot of quick sandwich shops.  The one I did find in the main business district was already closed for the day as it was almost 3:00.

After striking out downtown, I drove back out towards the Interstate where chains dominate the landscape.  There used to be a place called the Chicken Coop (review HERE) close to I-94, but since the last time I was in town (May), it has been torn down and a Walgreens is being built.  So, my choices were all chains.  I contemplated Taco Bell, but realized that would be hard to eat in the car.  I ended up choosing McDonald’s mostly because it was next to a stop light and it’d be easy to cross traffic to get back to the Interstate. 

The last few times I’ve been to McDonald’s (not counting a late not stop on my way home from Indy I didn’t blog about), I’ve gotten the Southwestern Salad.  I couldn’t eat a salad while driving and honestly, I just wanted a greasy cheeseburger and fries.  I get what I usually get.  A double quarter pounder with cheese plain and fries.  I order fast food cheeseburgers plain so it’s at least heated up before I get it and the toppings they put on aren’t fresh or anything, so it’s pointless.  I’d rather just have the meat. 

This was an interesting McDonald’s.  I know they’re trying to change their image to stay fresh, but I’ve never seen this design before.  The dining room is a little more interesting than the usual two rows of booths.  I don’t know if I’d call it an art deco design, but there is a lot more color and design put into the seating areas.  I had to weave around tables just to find a the bathroom which was another reason I stopped where I did.

I grabbed my meal to go then jumped back in the truck to continue my five hour drive.  That burger really hit the spot.  I was somewhat good and only got a medium fry and Coke so it didn’t quite fill me up, but it held me over until I got to my parents where my dad and brother were working on cooking T-Bones on the grill. 

McDonald’s is pretty much a treat for me.  I don’t want to eat there everyday…or hell, even once a week, but every now and then, it really does something for me.  I’ll get a craving about once a month and that’s about it.  I’m not a fast food guy, but it’s one of those things that I just get a hankering for.

I have gone to that particular McDonald’s several times and at least 40% of the time I do not get everything I ordered. The service is not good and the quality is not what I expect from a McDonald’s Restaurant.
I will not go back to that McDonald’s again and will discourage anyone I know from doing the same.

That McDonalds has actually won the best McDonalds In Michigan in 2009 and in 2011, and is always one of the top 10 every year… It’s food is always fresh and service is good and fast. So actually “Manuel Hohannon” I would strongly incourage people to go to that McDonalds since it has many rewards for it’s service and food, also the manager has won the best Manager in the country once to… but thats just a side note.

I bought two different time a broiled chicken wrape and each time the chicken was no bigger then a nugget. I talked to the manager and she smilled and said it suppose to be half a chiken patty she would have to talk to her people, Wouldn’t you think she would want to please the customer and give one free don’t you think $1.60 is too high for one nugget a teaspoon of cheese a little lettuce

The place is usually packed with people and I can not understand why. The people behind the counter are cold and uncaring and they get my order wrong about half the time. There is a Burger King across the street with a top notch staff and a lot more parking. Why is this McDonald’s even still in business?
