Civic Mcdonalds – On it’s way to being worse than Erindale?

By trickydarts - 28 April 2009 52

There is nothing more satisfying than medium cheeseburger meal at the end of a hard day. But I’m sorry to say that Civic Mcdonald’s just fails me every time. First of all – I know you work in a hell hole and it’s probably not the most satisfying job in the world, but a smile goes a long way. The customer service is horrible and it takes a good 30 seconds to understand what the person serving just said. Secondly – does it really take 6 minutes to get my coke? Didn’t think so.

Anyway, after waiting an eternity to order and get my meal, I bit into my cheeseburger only to find an extremely long, thick, black piece of hair right next to my pickle. Mank. I took it back and explained what was wrong with my cheeseburger only to have the girl look at me and say ‘And ..?’.

UM, SORRY WHAT?! I want a new, hair-free burger pronto!! I was absolutely horrified that she even had the nerve to speak like that to a customer!

I know Erindale Macca’s has no frozen coke machine and is over-run with infants, but surely that’s better than a manky hair-ridden cheeseburger.

What’s Your opinion?

So raise a big issue Danman

I used to quite frequently here, though doing so now would lead to lashings of random abuse, and no real discussion, so chose to cease and desist of late.

I have and will continue to raise issues in a more appropriate forum*.

Just here for the ride now, to see where we are going, and exercise my “right of reply”.

*Need not imply electronic medium.

anyway I digress, back OT, Sutton Forest McDonalds is a well oiled machine, the queues can be 10/15 deep across the counter and you will still have your food in 8 to 10 minutes… In the Canberra Local generic FF eateries, it takes that long to get served, hence why I frequent these type of places less and less.

The fact remains, though, that standards in many maccas have slid considerably over the past 10-15 years.
Maccas has never been a top shelf restuarant, but for basic food, especially when traveling (and especially with kids) it’s a pretty reasonable compromise.

Agree.

Cook your own food you laggards!

The Sutton Forest one is the only Maccas I’ve been to in Oz in recent years. Their coffee is reliable, I’ve not had the food. When in the US, I like ot go to Wendy’s as they make each thing to order, so it’s not sitting there in a melting parcel like Maccas and Hungry’s. Taht food it pre-digested anyway, a bit like baby food, and wrapping it up in paper just has the final digestion process starting earlier. At least if they put it together to order, you have a running start at it.

Go have a look at the Sutton Forest maccas on the Hume Hwy for a different view. They know how to run a fast food place!

The one in Maroubra is not far behind . . .

I just went to the RiotACT RSS feed and opened the three stories I hadn’t read yet, with the result that the two serious topics had no responses, and this one has six!

Seriously, there is crap service to be had all over the place (although the American-style chains certainly have the monopoly). How about someone suggest somewhere you can get good service, rather than just complain about where you can get bad service?

I blame it on the staff. Go have a look at the Sutton Forest maccas on the Hume Hwy for a different view. They know how to run a fast food place!

If that’s all you have to worry about mate. I dare say things aren’t so bad.

Personally I find sex more satisfying than a cheeseburger.

if you want to try something different but just as crap have a go at woden KFC ! service plus !!

grundy 9:55 am 28 Apr 09

Lol! You ate at Maccas.

Fail!

(That’s twice in one week I’ve been able to say that.) 😀

So raise a big issue Danman and let the debate commence 🙂 Just avoid Maccas in Tuggeranong for your push bike – it’ll be stolen before your eyes by the ferals that haunt the place.

‘There’s nothing more satisfying than a medium cheeseburger meal at the end of a hard day’

Dude, you need to get out more…

Danman 9:45 am 28 Apr 09

Good to see RiotACT consistently tackling the big issues…

Can I get my windscreen washed on an unregistered pushbike whilst waiting in the drive (ride?) through McDonalds in Braddon, or would Hungry Jacks in tuggeranong be better for that ?

And why has McDonald’s decided that the extra large beverage is a no-goer? I am quite confident that my own daily purchases made the size extremely viable. I blame the general decline in McDonald’s service on the crazy move to food preparation “to order”. I thought the whole fast food agenda was based on people being given limited choice so things could be ready to go without personalisation…
