HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Well the staff over there has changed and nothing is clean at all & will not eat there again as this is the last straw being in hospital and sick as a dog from there, but always ordered from breakfast menu and got sausage egg on muffin. It had an egg shell that I had to spit out and the hash browns half frozen.
Next day get the sausage biscuit and hash browns again. The hash browns were frozen half and sent them back (biscuit hard as a brick as probably left over from day before). As this went on all that week the same thing so I just ordered coffee and brought my own creamer and sugar. Then I ordered burrito and there was something in those things that wasn't cool so picked them out and decided NOT to eat there at all.
Well my very last and final day there I ordered 1 sausage toasted muffin and a coffee. Well when I got a refill on the coffee low and behold there was something floating in my coffee and that was the final as I left that place and NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER will I step foot in there again. I am human and not some kind of animal that you can throw anything to that I will eat and the health dept. is going to be in there and close it down till it can come to code as they're yelling at people in front of customers and no one will work under those conditions. As I would have told them to find some undocumentented worker that will take this from you but not me.
Wal-Mart employees have been complaining as they seen the same thing with the food or you order it with cheese and they forget it and so they take it back and throw a cold slice of cheese on it and hand it back to you. Well hell, I could have bought cheese in deli if that is what I wanted. This place needs to be shut down...
ABERDEEN, MARYLAND -- We have continued to receive wrong orders at the McDonald's located on Rt. 22 and Rt. 40 in Aberdeen, MD, with the latest screw-up being this evening. On an average, we (my husband and I) visit these McDonald's 2-3 times a week. And, on an average, two out of these three visits would result in an incorrect order, an incomplete order, or an order where the food was cold.
Tonight the husband ordered his meal and asked for fries. He was halfway home and you guessed it - no fries. Now, this doesn't happen once in a blue moon. This happens consistently. I've told my husband to always check his order before he leaves the window because it's a running joke about the cold fries they give you. Now, McDonald's is not a bargain any longer. We pay an average of $12 - $14 for sandwich meal "deals" for two people. This is no gourmet meal, granted, but it is still a substantial amount of money to pay for meals that are sadly lacking.
McDonald's demands that you pay first and then throws cold food at you in addition to taking your money for what they DON'T put in the bag. You're tired and you're hungry and you don't feel like you have to sit at the window to check to see if your order is correct but you have to. So, on the days you neglect to check your order you have to return in order for them to "make it right" and then the other items in the order you placed gets cold waiting on your correct order.
This is an outrage and must stop. We are Mr. and Mrs. America here and what is happening to us happens to everyone. We are tired of being ripped off by this huge corporation and feel that there must be some recourse to this travesty of both shoddy service and food quality.
What has happened to the customer being important? What has happened to someone overseeing operations and making sure an order is correct? I thought that managers attended a training facility known as "Hamburger U." Now I feel the facility must be renamed to "Hamburger Screw-You" because that is what's happening. It's obvious that McDonald's has gotten so big that they no longer care for quality; just the almighty green that crosses their palms. They no longer care for the customer - it is obvious in almost every transaction conducted.
NEWTON, KANSAS -- This fast food business wanted me to 'pull forward' and wait for my fast food consisting of and totaling "4 hamburgers, 1 large fry, & 2 cokes". I had already paid CASH, so I said I will wait here. They insisted I pull forward so they could wait on 'other customers'. I said no! Just give me the food or a refund. They said pull forward. Again I said no, I will wait here for my refund.
They called the manager to the window. I again explained my simple order cannot be served to me so I wanted a refund. $8.44.... I am totally aggravated, disgusted, and embarrassed that I have over the years spent Thousands of dollars at McDonald's for food, products, etc. (I have 6 children, and over 30 grand and great grand children, so you know I have spent plenty on McD's). I have never been treated like this anywhere but here in Newton. This is the 3rd. time I have had a confrontation with this store and the women that work there.
LITTLEFALLS, NEW JERSEY -- The manager of McDonalds in the little falls NJ told me one night that if I did not move my car from his parking lot that he could have his people tow my car and I would not get it back. If his people are there I would not be able to get in my car and leave that they are towing it this is not something that he could have done. this is not right. what do you think? I was the one person who got ill on food from McDonald's in April of this year 2012. Had a write up about this problem, but as the McDonald's corporation is they do nothing about it.
What about the so called McDonald's charity programs ha... I always ordered some thing from this McDonald's location. There was one night that they did not have their food gloves on when they were filling the orders for people. They used their dirty bare hands. You should have seen this. I felt sick, they were passing germs on the food to people that paid and ordered food. There the people at the window could not see this but I did because I was inside the building with two of my friends. At the time this was going on they said they ran out of supplies that the order was coming in the next day.
Well go out to a store and pick up some food service gloves next time and please do not do this again this makes me really think what germs I already was exposed to at this McDonald's location in little falls NJ. And sometimes some of the workers were not very nice to the customers.
There were a lot of drunken people and the place was always a mess. Some of the people would vomit in the parking lot or inside the building. One time a young man vomited on the table in front of me. He must have been drunk this location. I think is getting out of control one time some people were banging on my car. Believe me other things have gone on there that are upsetting to me. I have to say some of these people are animals that come in there.
WICHITA, KANSAS -- I went to the McDonald's at Seneca and Pawnee, ordered 2 biscuits and gravy and an oatmeal. I got home, opened up my biscuits and gravy, and noticed there was hardly any gravy. My husband opened his and noticed same thing. I took both biscuits and gravy back to the store thinking I would get it fixed. The manager came to counter, I showed her what I got and she said she would fix me new orders. I waited and waited after waiting at least 10 min. I just asked for my money back and I would go somewhere else Instead of her saying, "I'm sorry let me get this fixed right now." and making me a happy customer, she went ahead and gave me my money.
So I left headed for your store at Pawnee and West street, got delayed by a train of course by the time the train got by it was 10:40. I was not sure if I would get my biscuits and gravy but thought I would give it a try, hoping after the manager would hear about the poor service at your Pawnee and Seneca store that they would want to make me happy. So, went in and told the manager about what had happened and that I would have been on time but due to the train, I was late.
I can tell you the manager at your Pawnee and West Street store was very nice. They didn't have any biscuits ready but said if I didn't mind waiting about 2 minutes, he would be happy to make me 2 orders of biscuits and gravy and in no time at all I was on my way with my order.
Kudos to your staff at the Pawnee and West Street store. They made me a happy customer and a forever customer. As far as your other store, they just lost a customer and I will never go back. My son has also got his orders wrong or gotten cold food numerous times at this location. Someone really needs to take charge of this store and start showing customers that they can get orders right or will fix the problems right away and start getting people to put trust in this store again or you will not have a store due to lack of customers.
EVANS, GEORGIA -- It was around two in the morning when I went to the McDonald's that is open 24 hours in Evans, GA. All I ordered was a medium fry, large sweet tea, and a Mcdouble. I waited in line for fifteen minutes through the drive through with only two cars ahead of me. I pulled up to the window and got my order and pulled up a little bit to check it. I noticed that they gave me a small fry instead of a medium.
So I went back through the line again waiting another fifteen minutes. When I get up to the window I explain the situation, gave her my receipt and untouched bag of food, and she told me I had to go back through the line yet again. I asked why she couldn't just take back the small fry and just correct the mistake and she said she just couldn't. So she called over her teenaged manager and she rudely asked me what the problem was and I told her.
She said it will be a minute, she had other customers waiting so I needed to go back through the drive through. I asked her if I could just have a refund then and she said no. So I unfortunately waited another fifteen minutes in the line again and when I finally got to the window yet again she just held it out not saying a word. The fries were cold.
How is it so difficult to just get a medium box and put fries in it? Why did I have to go through the line again? Not once did she apologize for their mistake. Yes it was just fries, but what makes me mad is going through the line again and just waiting for cold fries. I didn't even touch them when I got them or the food because for all I know they could have messed with my Mcdouble.
I wasted money and was not happy. She could have handled the situation a lot better than that. Not going to McDonald's again, yes they mess up my order all of the time but usually a manager corrects it at that moment with no problem. If I need to go to a fastfood restaurant in the future I will not be going back to McDonald's. I'll be taking my business elsewhere. If McDonald's can't hire a friendly staff, then there is no point in even taking your business there. They have no idea what they are doing.
DAYTON, OHIO -- Occurred: April 20, 2012 about 5:30 AM. I stopped by the McDonald's at 1501 Keowee St, Dayton, Ohio as I do a couple times a week for breakfast on the way to work. I ordered off the dollar menu as I normally do. Ordering a Sausage McMuffin, no egg. The lady that took the order (which as with every morning I stop in is very friendly) told me as normal my order was a dollar. I pulled to the window and paid with a ten dollar bill and was given change. I pulled to the next window and realized that I had only received $6 and some change. I just figured an honest mistake and I looked at the receipt and was charged for oatmeal (another honest mistake).
I spoke with the woman at the next window and told her the problem and she took the receipt and change and made a correction bringing me back another amount. After looking I now had $7 and some change. I told her that what I had ordered was off the dollar menu and she said she wasn't sure and checked with another person that I assume was a manager and she said no that it wasn't on the dollar menu.
I tried telling them that I had just stopped in on Thursday and purchased the same thing and was only charged one dollar. She said they must not have charged me right. Needing to get to work I decided to leave and called to speak to the manager after I got to work. I tried explaining what had happened and she tried telling me that I had not ordered what I had said I did.
I order the same thing every morning. Only changing with maybe ordering a hashbrown to go along with my order. I was overcharged and never received the correct amount back. I have contacted McDonald's Corp and below is the only response that I have received:
"Hello Jason. Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's Customer Service Center to bring your recent experience to our attention. First, I hope you will accept my sincere apology for your disappointment in McDonald's. I can assure you that we want you to be completely satisfied every time you visit one of our restaurants.

Secondly, we want to recognize your complimentary comments and thank you for your kind words. Although we did not completely meet your expectations, please know that our restaurant employees strive to maintain the highest standards of quality, service and cleanliness. It's certainly nice to know that their efforts are appreciated. Again, thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's. Customer feedback is very important to us as it helps us improve.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- My mother is 60 yrs old and does not speak English. The cashier and manager treated her so bad that she came home crying to me. She asked for a $1 salad, McChicken, fries and a cup of water. When she placed the order, she was not informed that the cup of water cost $1, and when she received her food, the order was wrong and did not get her McChicken.
Then she asked the cashier why was she being charged a dollar for a cup of water, the cashier went crazy and told my mother that he did not care if she got soda or water, that he had to charge for the cup. My mother understood the part were he had to charge but what she could not understand is why this young man is giving her an attitude over a question and instead of explaining it to her or taking time to fix the problem.
He got the manager. Guess what happened next. I'm so furious, he snatched the cup from my mother's hand and threw it away. Then he opened the register and threw the dollar in her face and gave her a small cup, the size of a shot glass and said "Here you go, if you want water drink out of here". I can't believe it, if I were there I wish they would have done that. I would have grabbed that manager by the neck and showed him.
I'm so sad that McDonald's is not paying attention to customer service especially for Latinos and I have to admit that I rather pay for something expensive as long as the service is good, people don't care about personal issues. If they can't do their job right then it's time to fire them. The only one losing money and business is the owner. I swear, I will never eat or have my family eat there anymore or any McDonald's for that matter.
I know people make mistakes and they deserve a second chance but they forget that they are getting paid because I am making a purchase and if no one went there, then there would be no McDonald's. I am truly disappointed and I will make sure to tell all of my friends, family and people I know so they can be aware of what to expect from this chain restaurant. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I truly hope something is done about this matter.
PENNSYLVANIA -- I went to McDonald's on Saturdays Jan 31 2012 about 3.00 pm with my family for my granddaughter's birthday
and we ordered fish sandwiches and other stuff and went back to the children's area, passed out the children's food and went to bite into my fish sandwich and deep fryer grease came out of the sandwich and burned me. I went up and asked for some serves on that matter and showed the manager my mouth. She asked me if I wanted an ice cream cone for my mouth.
I said no, I have ice on it. So I asked the manager for a suggestion box or complaint box and they didn't know where there was one or what to do. Then she said "call the number on the cup", so I went back, sat down and tried calling. I got a fax ring, so I left and went home. By then my whole mouth was burning, so I went to the hospital and the er doctor told me that I second degree burns in my mouth, and gave me pain medicine for my mouth and follow up with my family doctor. So Sunday I got so that I couldn't breathe right.
So I called the family doctor and she called me back - I told her what happened and that I thought it was my asthma and she called me in steroid and told me to take two pills and do my breathing treatments and see them in the morning. I struggled all that night breathing so my husband called them and they got me right in. The doctor took a look at me and said you have second degree burns in your mouth and down your throat. So they shot me up with a shot to open my air ways.
It helped a little that day but the next day I was back to having trouble breathing. So I went back and the doctor shot me up again and they kept giving me more steroids to take. Now I'm sick with stomach problems because of all the medicine I've been on and still having problems breathing.
TYLER, TEXAS -- I just went to the McDonald's on 5th street and the loop, store # 20046. I placed a large order. When I got to the second window I was first handed the bag of fries, as soon as I peered in the bag I saw that one container was only about halfway full, and as I picked up the other two cartons I saw that they too weren't full so I politely asked the guy at the drive through if they could please fill the fries because I had intentionally super sized these meals so that I would have enough food to feed all the children that I have at home.
He handed it to a manager ** and she said "We don't open the boxes all the way," as she rolled her eyes at me! Then she yanked the bag out of the guys hands and he told me to please pull forward because they were waiting on fries. I pulled up but turned off the engine and went right inside because I was worried, with the way this MANAGER was acting about what would happen to my food. As soon as I walked in the door another employee was handing me my french fries. I let her know that I still needed two kids meals.
She was then looking for the ketchup and told ** or something like that at the register that I needed ketchup. I told her that I did not need ketchup but the rest of my food. This ** told me that it was not this other lady's fault that I was upset. WOW!! This was not even her place, and she did not even know what was going on to even be saying anything. The ** lady then asked me if the kids meals were chicken or burgers. If they had not been cheating and deleting the order before it was completed they would known what I needed.
When I got home the food was cold, oooh and by the way, the fries were the same ones... Not any hot fresh ones and they had just been fluffed up probably by someone's hands, no one was wearing gloves!! I spent 29.47 on this and threw it all in the trash. I plan to be speaking to ** first thing in the morning and getting my money back!!
