McDonald’s on 18th Avenue and 65th Street has apparently closed up shop for good.
Customers who stopped by the 6419 18th Avenue location today were surprised to find the doors locked and the lights dimmed.
“I came here for nothing!” exclaimed one woman, who was accompanied by her daughter.
While staff were spotted behind the counter when we visited today, signs on the glass windows directed customers to Micky D’s on Bay Parkway.
“Sorry for any inconvenience,” read the signs in all caps.
We reached out to McDonald’s for a comment on why the store closed down, but have not yet received a response. However, it is telling that the location compelled people to leave almost exclusively one-star ratings on Yelp, with many reviewers calling it “the worst McDonald’s ever.”
“I was buying food for my dad and service was H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.,” wrote one Yelper. “There isn’t much professionalism between the cashiers and no one seems to be paying attention to customers in line.”
Another added, “I could slaughter the cow, sow potatoes in a field and formulate them into a quarter pounder and fries before I would get my food at this place…STAY AWAY.”
Others complained of outdated decor, the ketchup “tasting weird,” and accused employees of recycling oil. So good riddance, we guess?
