A McChronicles mission sampled the atmosphere in a San Francisco McDonald's this week. What was found was really irksome. While the store was well posted as being in the midst of a renovation, it was still a dump. Unrelated to the wallpaper upgrade was the overflowing garbage, cleaning equipment, and a stack of food supplies sitting out in the open, blocking the stairs , for the entire duration of the visit.
Part of any dining experience is the ambiance. This McDonald's offered hardcore reminders of the seamy underside of any restaurant and put a wet blanket on a much-anticipated meal.
