Almost every American has at least
once eaten at McDonald's - the famous burger chain. McDonald's
started out in San Bernadino, California and grew as a chain of

the quality of the food delivered.
Pricing: Prices are standard. Due to the location prices may be
a tick higher (cents) compared to restaurants outside of Highlands
Overall - this specific McDonalds Restaurant is just average.
If you are in need of a quick meal and do not expect the best food
but acceptable quality, this can be the right place. If you are
