I wouldn't know, I never eat it!! Actually, that's a fib. I have a friend who always wants to meet up in a McDonalds sp about once every 6 months I do go there. I don't pay though, so that still doesn't help me answer your question ;-) I'm sure if you compare it to buying 'proper' food, it would far rather poorly though.

The last time I went to Pizza Hut in the UK I took friends who were visiting the country. It cost me the same as a decent meals elsewhere & was so bad that we were really embarrassed & swore not to go back :-(

Hello,ruby!I don't know exactly how it costs.but i think it is not only expensive but also unhygienic.it may contribute to an array of diseases like diabetes,obesity,blood pressure,etc.so in my opinion it is better to prepare foods at home and save money and life.you can utilise this saved money for making assets.am i right?all the best.

It is expensive isn't it, we are off to McDonalds on Sunday and it will be the first time since about August last year I think!! With four kids it is just impossible to be able to afford to go there on a regular basis.

In the UK its very expensive to eat in Mc Donalds...especially with a family Rose....I was just saying that my sister lives in Barain..and all of the takeaways are cheap...she tells me that its cheaper to eat out than it is in!!!! Considering she hates cooking,,it suits her fine!!!! Apparently the cheapest way to eat in Bahrain is to have a rice and meat takeaway...they often have it.. But in the UK anything takeaway is a real treat!!!

I think it's so expensive to account for the different currencies. Like, in England, a Burger from Burger King is £4.50 roughly. That'd equate to approximately $9.00 in the US which is ATROCIOUS. I don't know anybody who'd pay that much for a burger, so I think the different companies lower the prices. Like the british pound is worth alot, whereas the dollar (no offence) isn't worth as much, it's a way of increasing profits. If a burger cost $4 in the US , that'd be £2 in the UK, whereas if they charged £4 in the uk and $4 in the US, they'd be making an extra $4 dollars a piece. Do you see what I mean? I'm from the UK so I can't compare prices of fastfoods unfortunately, but I thought I'd add my two pence.
