This post was created in partnership with McDonald’s. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recently I had the opportunity to eat at a brand new McDonald’s. This was not just any old McDonald’s though. This was a very modern looking restaurant that contained Kiosk’s for you to not only place your entire order, but also to “Create Your Taste”.
When I was invited to go to this McDonald’s I was surprised to hear that it was already open! It had only been a few months that we saw a sign stating there would be a McDonald’s there. They ended up tearing down a McDonald’s that was right up the street when this one was built. However, this McDonald’s is the first one to be built in Illinois specifically with the new Create Your Taste theme in mind.
Going to this McDonald’s was a unique experience. From the decor to the new menu choices, to the service, and even the way the food is served…it all created an effectively different package.
When we first arrived at this McDonald’s in Downer’s Grove, IL – the first thing that stood out to us were the Kiosk’s. These were created with the Create Your Taste menu, with build-your-own burger feature. There are 22 premium tasty toppings to choose from. Yikes! 🙂 The Kiosk’s also allowed you to order anything off the menu too. Around the kiosks were several McDonald’s Team Members to help you throughout your whole ordering process.
My burger, on the left, has some of my favorite things – mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, cheese, mushrooms and bacon! You can even choose the type of bun you would prefer, Brioche or Artisan. My husband and I both chose Brioche. My burger was incredibly tasty!
My husband, on the other hand, got what I like to call the “Man Burger.” He got it loaded with lots of grilled onions and jalapeno peppers! He loved his burger, and truly did create the perfect burger for himself.
Our food was actually brought to the table by a couple of the Team members. Our burgers were served open face and the fries were served in this adorable little basket (below). The Team members also offered and brought any other condiments we needed, such as ketchup or BBQ sauce.
One of my favorite things about this McDonald’s was the decor. I loved the colors, and how much it was unlike a traditional “fast food” experience.
My overall experience with this new format was extremely positive. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, the service, and the whole experience!
Some of the toppings include three types of cheese, different kinds of buns, a number of sauce options and topping selections. New toppings include guacamole, jalapenos, and chili-lime tortilla strips. Servers deliver orders directly to customers.
