DES PLAINES, IL – APRIL 14: A wrapped cheeseburger and hamburger display sits inside the McDonald’s USA First Store Museum April 14, 2005 in Des Plaines, Illinois. The McDonald’s museum is a recreation of the first McDonald’s restaurant opened at this location by founder Ray Kroc on April 15, 1955. The original red and white tiled restaurant was finally torn down in 1984 and the present facility was built according to the original blueprints with some modifications to accommodate visitors and staff. The customer service and food preparation areas contain original equipment and the all male crew is represented by mannequins dressed in the 1955 uniform of dark trousers, white shirts, aprons and paper hats. McDonald’s will mark their 50th anniversary with an opening of a new restaurant in Chicago. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)
When I was a kid in the 80’s I could go to McDonalds and have a smoke and a burger inside the restaurant. McDonalds was nice enough to provide some really decent ash trays, and you could eat till you were stuffed for very few dollars. I absolutely remember that a Big Mach meal was $2.99 with tax it was $3.18.
Anytime I go to McDonalds today, the same mea. is over $9.00. So about 3x as much. I realize that prices on everything has gone up a lot since the 80’s. Hell every single thing in the last few years has gone up.
Eating at McDonalds is still affordable in my opinion. The good news is now, McDonalds are lowering the price of food.
