This McDonalds is sketch-town. The food is fine - completely standard McDonalds fare - but the environment is serverely lacking. Seems like all the local panhandlers hang out here all day.

If you are in the Theater district and need a quick bite, this is the place to stop. Fast service, known food and will allow you to make a curtain time with time to spare.

Interesting McDonald's - must be because of the large homeless/panhandler population. Had to show a receipt to a cop to use the restroom and signs posted indicating you can sit there no more than 30 minutes while consuming. Welcome to Downtown Chicago!

The inside is very cool, not like the McDonalds in Ohio. As far as service it was just okay. I find these days its hard to come by friendly people. Definitely overpriced.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
