They don’t get nearly as much respect as they deserve for their coffee. This really is good coffee. The coffee snobs amongst you might disagree. But there is a lot to like here. They use good quality beans, they roast them to perfection and they sell them cheap, with the biggest one still costing you less than $3.40. You can’t argue with that, so don’t dismiss the McDonald’s menu when you need a cup of Joe.

How Much Does a McDonald’s McFlurry Cost

The prices are $1.69 and $2.39, depending on which size you order. In some locations and in some countries, you can only order one size. In the United States, where everything is bigger and better and where this chain was born, there is a little more variety.

When it comes to the McDonald’s menu there are a few standout items. These are the things that every one knows and loves. One of them is the fries, which are crispier, saltier and just so much nicer. The other is the Big Mac. And then, for the sweet toothed among you, there is the McFlurry. This is a fast food treat and in our opinion it beats anything you can find on the Dairy Queen Menu and the Orange Julius Menu. It is not that we dislike those menus, it’s just that we love the McFlurry so much.

McDonalds Menu Questions

We get asked more about McDonalds than any other chain it seems. So, now that we have answered some of your questions regarding the price of certain items, let’s get some of your other questions out of the way. Scroll down to see answers to all of the following questions:

  • When Does McDonald’s Serve Lunch?
  • How Are McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets Made?
  • How to Get Free McDonald’s
  • Is McDonald’s Bad For You?
  • Is McDonald’s 24 Hours?
  • How Many McDonald’s Are There in the World?
  • How Many McDonald’s Are There in the United States?

When Does McDonald’s Serve Lunch?

The times differ depending on the location, but in many cases breakfast stops being served at 10:00am and then lunch takes over. If you take a look at our McDonald’s Secret Menu you will notice that there is also a “sweet-spot” when breakfast ends and lunch begins, during which you can make all kinds of crazy combinations.

How Are McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets Made?

Don’t ask.


How to Get Free McDonald’s

If you drop by during National French Fries Day and National Cheeseburger Day then you can take advantage of some free food. The base ingredients here are very cheap so they don’t mind giving food away during promos. If you complain, you can also get free food, seemingly regardless of what the complaint is. There are even many customers who insist that you can go through the drive-thru saying that they got your order wrong and that they will give you freebies to make up for it, even if it’s a blatant lie.

We personally wouldn’t advocate stealing cheap fast food, as it sinks to a level that you will probably never forgive yourself for, but it proves just how cheap and throwaway this food is to the chain.

Is McDonald’s Bad For You?

Of course it is not. This is energy-dense fast food that is heavily processed, full of salt, fat and sugar, and has very little nutrition. However, it’s not going to kill you if you have one burger and everything is okay if you enjoy it in moderation.

There is a lot of concern about regular fast food consumption and some of this is backed up by science, but the public perception has been skewed by the media and by things like Supersize Me, which displayed results that no one has been able to replicate no matter how hard they try.

Is McDonald’s 24 Hours?

While many eat-in and drive-thru locations are open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, the same can not be said for all locations. It typically depends on where they are located and on whether there are any restrictions forced on them by local authorities.

How Many McDonald’s Are There in the World?

It is the second largest chain in the world behind Subway, and it is by far the largest burger chain. In total there are just under 37,000 locations around the world. These can be found in around 120 countries.

How Many McDonald’s Are There in the United States?

There are just over 14,000 locations in the United States. This makes the US the largest country by far for the Golden Arches. But when you consider that it was founded here, and that the US has a passion for fast food that is unrivaled that does not come as much of a surprise.

McDonald’s Breakfast Menu Prices

The most popular items on McDonald’s menu span across a variety of meal types, from breakfast to dinner, sides to entrees. Depending on your area McDonalds breakfast hours may vary, so make sure to check before heading in to eat.

Topping the charts of favorite breakfast foods is the Egg McMuffin, a sought-after entree that is unfortunately only sold during breakfast hours. Of course, another huge seller is the Big Mac, the signature McDonald’s burger for decades. The Snack Wrap was a major success after McDonald’s decided to corner the market of customers desiring something quick and healthy. All of these successes, though, are trumped by McDonald’s French Fries, their all time best seller.
