The Mickey D’s on Delancey Street has been called “the worst McDonald’s ever” by multiple reviewers on Yelp, where it has a lackluster two stars. But on April 21, there’ll be a ribbon-cutting to celebrate recent renovations to what’s been called “the last stop before hell.”
A couple of things have happened since we last updated you on the world of lightening-fast food delivery: for one thing, you can now get Fuku’s chicken sandwich in under 15 minutes via Caviar Fastbite. But the thing I can’t get out of my head: McDonald’s is now using the service, and — after tax, delivery fee, and tip — a simple Big Mac and fries will cost you over $13.50.
This raises the question: who the hell is paying $13 for a Big Mac and fries? And if people are actually doing this (which they seem to be, given that the item was temporarily unavailable the other day), is this the ultimate symbol of just how easy it is to get New Yorkers to throw their money into a festering feces pit?
