      We rarely eat out anymore due to the expense and quality of the food. However, earlier this month I picked up McDonald’s for lunch and was shocked that it cost $38 for 3 people and that’s without buying drinks.

      Well, on Saturday our daughter took us out for lunch to a local mom & pop hole in the wall cafe downtown.

      The food was delicious, service was excellent and the total came to $22! For 3 people.

      So, I suggest if you want to go out for lunch find a local hole in the wall place and you may also find it a much better option.

        I totally agree! I went to a local bakery last weekend for one of their home-made muffins. Well, I left with a box of 3 cookies, 2 brownies, and 1 muffin… total was $8!!! (And no, I don’t have a rewards card or a deal of any kind) I was super shocked!

          Just went to Arby’s. 2 sandwiches, 2 drinks and 4 pc cheese sticks $22.04. And that was with a senior discount.

            Yes! I swung through McDonald’s late night a couple weeks ago for a large fry and a small milkshake. It was $9!

            I couldn’t believe it. Never again. I’d rather go to a local ice cream shop and get a decent tasting milkshake for a better price.

              Absolutely. And look at apps & coupons for eating out. So much cheaper!

                I have found the exact same thing. A sit down is almost always cheaper now then “fast food”. It’s also healthier and way more filling.

                  I use the app in McDonalds. I ordered their Meal Deal using the daily 20% off coupon.
                  2 Big Macs
                  20 Nuggets
                  2 Med Fries

                  It fed 2 adults and 3 kids in a hurry!

                  The McDonald’s app is the only way i eat there. It has incredible deals!

                    Local places at least make food fresh and its not Chinese fake food nuggets. Nothing against the people of china. But mcDs food is def nothing healthy.

                      I totally agree with you: generally speaking family restaurants/cafes will give you big portions and cost less. Plus you’re supporting the local economy instead of corporations.

                        Very true. We have an awesome burger place in town owned by a well known chef. You can get a freshly ground burger with interesting seasonings and toppings plus fries for about $12.

                          Oh my gosh, that’s so terrible. Whenever considering McDonalds, just remind yourself it’s not even food. It’s dog food quality. Why blow even $6 on a burger? Glad you found a great alternative!
