    This is a 2 story McDs. It looks like the old twin arch McDs. It has a small museum. The first hour of parking is free with a purchase.

    Come here for the free wi-fi, clean bathrooms, and to quietly sing the Wesley Willis song as you check out the memorabilia on the upper level. Do not, however, come here to eat.

    You've gotta check out the display cases upstairs. Not your average McDonalds. My friend and I just stopped in when we were in the area walking by

    Be sure to check out the upstairs sections, they have 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's sections with the music playing from said time frames!

    Perfect for a family parking spot. Centrally located to many points, clean bathrooms, good changing location for the young ones and plenty of table space to feed the kids. Wagons are welcome!

    McDonalds is the place to rock, It is a restaurant where they buy food to eat, It is a good place to listen to the music, People flock here to get down to the rock music

    Everything is overly expensive for a McD's. I'd check out their specials, though. New food, like the chicken wraps, are promoted and cheaper!

    This rock 'n' roll-themed branch of McDonald's (a 2011 Most Innovative Company) draws massive crowds: Its capacity is 300 people, more than three times as many as the average McDonald's.
