I am 16 and last week we had a band trip to San Francisco. We stopped at mcdonalds for lunch and it was packed. I asked for a burger without the bun and got the bun so i returned it and asked again. On the back table where i could see, the cashier used her fingers, ripped the bun off and it looked really nasty. then i just ate my fries because i wasnt that hungry anyways but wow..

Glix,
Sorry you had such a poor experience! Fast food is definitely not a place to expect high quality service, but when that's all your stuck with, I guess fries only are your safest bet!

You should rent "Supersize Me" its a very interesting documentary on McDonalds, might amuse you.

WHEN you saw them just take the bun off and give you the burger again, you should have demanded a new burger. I have had to do this often. I just let them know that the meal was ruined for me the minute the bun touched the patty. I have never had a problem with McDonalds. They always fix it to my satisfaction. I have even been given free meals before due to their not getting it right the first time. Just because you are 16 does not mean you can not be firm!! Next time make sure they fix it right. :D

How did you almost close the place down?? Was there that many entrees that were gluten-free?? I have zero luck at buffets usually ~ and therefore not worth the cost!!
I sit and watch everyone else eat. Then I go to McDonalds!! :)

I think that is just a certain insance. My brother eats ther eon Saturdays and a few times I have had to return his food and have never had a problem. What that worker did is surely against policey and very lazy. You should have gotten a manager due to that disgusting behavior.

my family went to a mcdonalds and they tried to do the same thing but i caught them and let them know. i have found in our town that i can teat at the big mcdonalds bc they are careless but th esmall one in walmart knows us and are very good at our orders. if all else fails email the corp office. i had another situation where my son got a bacterial infection and the last place i looked was the mcdonalds. i emailed them and they seem to be very serious about how their workers handle things. of course everyone gets lazy but maybe an email will bring their regional manager by to check them more often

I know to ask for a new one and I always do. I am just warning those of you who don't know to be careful and watch what they're doing.

On a trip this weekend we were desperate and stopped at a McDonald's. Contaimination or no contamination what a disappointment that hamburger was (I never did like McD hamburgers even when I could eat the bun). Hardee's and BK are SOOO much better. We will not be returning to McD.

Actually, BK fries ARE cooked in dedicated fryers (although I always ask to make sure). It even says so if you go to the BK web site. The allergen chart notes if a product is cooked in the same oil with a known allergen. The fries are not.

http://www.bk.com/Fo...Info/index.aspx

The burgers with no bun are gluten-free. So are the condiments.

Wendy burgers with no bun are gluten-free but the fires are not on their gluten-free list. I believe this is because of a potential cross contamionation issue.

I like the Hardee's thickburger best of all but their fries are NOT cooked in a dedicated fryer, at least not at the one near our house.
