Easy Game:

How close is the nearest McD's to your primary residence? I'd say there are 3 within 1 mile. Probably much less. Albeit one at the BP and one is an express near the L-train stop and local campus.

Last time I ate any of them would have to be a month or more.

Of course there's the fourth one that's about a mile .1 away and I do drive past it and occasionally get a sundae... I mean.. 'frozen yogurt'.

So where's your McD? Imagine how much value this information lacks and holds at the same time.

It's not like I'm asking what you east for lunch each day?

At a time when they are adding a 100+ locations a year in China with peppermint soda and hot fish [sandwich] on the menu ... it makes me wonder? How can there be even more Starbucks than McDs on the way?

Approximately 1.3 miles, as the crow flies.

I'm at Perrystone Lane (middle right) and McD's is on Commercial Street (which is the unmarked street between Blueschool Street and Union Street - towards the middle left).

N.B.
KFC is closer, at the junction of Commercial Road and Stonebow Road - that's roughly in the middle of the map.

About 2 miles for me, never actually eat there though.

I guess when they are done with my remodel I could go check it out.

Neither do I.

Google Earth will tell you your distance, though.

I love their Junior Chicken burgers. Lovely! I don't eat anything else there.

Lots of people I know love their fries. I do find that the food at McDonalds actually tastes different in different countries/locales. The fries over the border in the U.S. taste much different, probably because McD's uses local potatoes. Even the burgers taste different.... to me.

Mind you, I stopped my McDonaldaholic ways about 10 years ago. It seems my body has decided it just can't go back to eating McD's food overall. Before that, I was an McD crazy man.

How many within a mile? If that includes the one in Wal-Mart then it's....... one, two, three, four............ yep, four.

The farthest one away from me is being built as we speak somewhere in China! he he

And I have enough "ho hum" in my life right now, that I don't need that as a prize anyway....... he he he

I don't mind, much prefer Burger King (Hungry Jacks here in Aust), not that I eat either that regularly. Did have a passion for White Castle late at night while I was in the States a few years back. They were so small and soooo bad that I had to have more!

I used to live next to a Burger King, and about once a year I would go in to remind myself why I do not go there. lol

I actually make my burgers at home with Thousand Islands like the Big Mac. So once in a while I will pop in while I am in a rush. I can still eat a Big Mac while driving, which really seems like the only time I do that.

No White Castle on the west coast, had it once near Detroit. I was told they are good after 2 am after one has consumed a large amount of alcohol. Not so much when it is around 6 in the evening when one is stone cold sober. Better than Burger King I will admit, but that standard is very low.
