It took me a year and a half, but I finally ate in one of those redesigned McDonalds.

The food was the same.  My Big Mac was good.  The fries were solid, albeit over-salted.

The decor?  Earth tones, wood, glass, upholstered seats, tile, a little carpet.

No garish colors.  No plastic and chrome overload.

And, no Ronald McDonald.  Where was Ronald?  I need my Ronald.  It wasn't a trip to McDonalds without the clown.  I want my clown!

Having said that, no one ever chose a fast food restaurant based on the decor.  It's the location, and the ability to get decent food, at a reasonable price.  Most of all, you have to get me in and out in a hurry.

New look.  Same old lack of "fast" in "fast food."
