    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.

    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

    5minutes to get waited on when there was no line and the manager just ignored me while he stood around talking. #theworst.

    Gets your order wrong, 4/7 times I've been here. I asked for a hamburger only ketchup. Is it that hard to understand?

    Get yourself upstairs, listen to the tunes, and try and forget you're at a McDonald's.

    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!

    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.

    Expensive as hell. Better offgoing to Portillos across the street. 3.55 for a sausage mcmuffin. No dollar menu.

    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.

    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!

    Should not be refered to as the rock n roll McDonalds anymore. It hasn't been RnR for years. Now it's just the one that costs way more than the one 3 blocks away.
