What Do You Think of the New McDonald's?

One of Palos Heights' newest businesses opened last week and held its grand opening over the weekend. The fast food restaurant remodeled the 127th Street location.

A much-anticipated remodeled McDonald's restaurant and drive-thru in Palos Heights held its grand opening over the weekend.

The fast-food spot on 127th Street is the latest restaurant offering for the city. In three months, McDonald's demolished the old building and popped up a new one.

This brand-spanking new building features a double drive thru and an updated design and facade.

The real question is: does this new look come with an upgraded operation, too? A number of customers weren't thrilled with the service at the old spot. Palos Patch readers on Facebook gave their initial reactions as the restaurant powered through its first few days of flipping burgers and making fries.


McDonald's relaunch comes on the heels of another burger restaurants development. Wendy's opened up a modernized building on Harlem Avenue, just on the other side of Jewel from the Golden Arches.

I didn't get a chance to go inside buy I saw from the window and it looks so gorgeous! Nothing like you'd expect from a McDonalds. Food was great, was in the drive for 6 minutes but it was lunch rush so I think it's normal to run a minute or two longer! Happy to wait for a great location and good service.

It has nothing to do with being new... many of those kids that work there are nice but ive seen with my own eyes some of the managers treat them like crap. Yes its fast food and but its ran bad for a McDonald's ...

My daughter brings my 3 grandchildren over and they love McD's. She complained last yr that this one was the worst. I have to agree since I have received orders that were skimpy and felt cheated. The only other one with bad service in the area is on 106 th and Cicero. I wonder if both aren't owned by same owner.

I'm wondering if all the people praising Wendy's to the heavens happen to work for Wendy's? Regarding this location, I've never had a problem with the service, and it's always packed every time I go...they must be doing something right!

I want to patronize locally...but their drive thru service is abominable! They have gotten our order wrong so many times it is ridiculous. We went there on January 6 and ordered at the drive thru window for four people. As us ual, they were unable to process our order in a timely manner so we pulled into a parking spot. After waiting a reasonable five minutes I went inside to check on my order. I met the worker who was bringing my order out. When I stopped to check it before leaving, said, "Oh, I think I forgot to put in the two hamburgers." Yes she did. Then she left me standing there with my incomplete order while she went outside with another order. How outrageous that she was knowingly going to bring an incomplete order to my car and let me potentially drive away with it! I can't tell you how many times they have messed up my order. I will never use their drive thru again and will only go to this location if my kids really, really want to. This location is awful. We go to Crestwood or Palos Hills instead.
