I'm not going to rate the food, y'all know what Macca's tastes like! But the reason to visit Taupo McDonalds is not for the food, but for the experience... of eating your snack/meal inside a real plane!!!!! We had a fun morning tea imagining all the places we could be flying to and seeing next.

The restaurant itself is like most other McDonald's in NZ, the usual favourites plus custom made burgers and McCafe. They have an excellent playground and a DC3 with tables and chairs that you can actually sit and eat at. Good fun

Same McDonalds fare but with addition of a DC3 to eat your food in, great fun, memorable and great to read the history of the plane.

Visited for lunch with the family, planning especially to see the DC-3 outside. Food was speedy and to standard. DC-3 was cool, seating is provided inside to recreate a meal in flight scenario. Love the backstory and state it has been left in.

This restaurant is the same as most as many of the McDonalds around NZ. The plane that is out in the playground area is popular for the younger children.

You gotta go even if all you order is a coffee. This place is the future of all McDonald's everywhere. Automated ordering. Dual band WIFI with power plugins. Music videos on the walls. Separate coffee & pastry bar. A full DC-3 converted to eating space. Plus everything else you normally get at Micky D's. Must experience.

Why? Because it has a plane attached to it! climb the stairs, check it out, even eat up there, although it was hot and stuffy. Take some pics, post to Facebook, grab some fries. All good.

Always try to get to the river in the early mornings and have to sit in the bloody car park for half an hour before I get my mcmuffin!
