McDonald’s With an Eagle on It
WHERE: Porto, Portugal
Housed in a building from the 1930s, this McDonald’s is immediately confusing, as there is a gigantic and very regal looking eagle statue sitting atop the sign. Inside, it is, of course, decorated with stained glass, chandeliers, mirrors, and other things that aren’t supposed to be inside of a McDonald’s.
Actual Mansion McDonald’s
WHERE: New Hyde Park, New York
This is another house-shaped McDonald’s, except this McDonald’s, is shaped like an actual mansion. They’ve got a grand staircase. They’ve got a glass-enclosed porch. If ever you’ve wanted to visit a mansion and a McDonald’s at the same time, this is your lucky day.
Giant Happy Meal McDonald’s
WHERE: Dallas, Texas
This McDonald’s is a gigantic happy meal, and inside is the biggest McDonald’s Playplace you’ve ever seen. For being so gargantuan and generally goofy looking on the outside, the inside is startlingly fancy, decorated with Ralph Lauren wallpaper, mahogany booths, and crystal chandeliers for some reason. We have no idea what is going on with this McDonald’s, but it is excellent.
WHERE: Madrid, Spain
This McDonald’s looks like an actual palace on a street of other historical buildings that also look like actual palaces. They sell chocolate-dusted cappuccinos, which are fancy drinks that aren’t typically sold at McDonald’s. This location is a bit more “regular café” than “McDonald’s, the fast-food restaurant.”
This Former Sea Captain’s Home McDonald’s
WHERE: Freeport, Maine
This McDonald’s is just a fancy, Greek Revival–style house, and was once the home of a sea captain. Now it’s a McDonald’s, but also still looks like the home of a sea captain.
