Relatively recently, some of the mega-sized fast food venues such as McDonald’s and Sonics, have introduced online ordering. I’ve tried McDonald’s and found it to be worthwhile, if only because you can check out any ongoing deals before ordering. This is a great way for a mom with a carload of kids to get an order put together, well before they pull up into the drive-thru lane. And, by paying with a credit card, there is no fumbling around with lose change at the pay window. You just tell the speaker your code, pull up to the pay window to grab a receipt move quickly to the food window and you’re on your way!
So yes, McDonald’s is a pretty sweet deal. But, what about Sonics? No, not really, in my opinion. My problem with their online process is not seeing what your paying for food until after it’s in the virtual ‘bag’. Uh, no! That just doesn’t play well with me. Let me know the prices up front, along with any deals (currently only half price drinks and slushes, any time, whenever you order), and then I can make a choice whether to throw them into the bag or not.
So, for now, when I do order online it will have to be McDonald’s, even though I feel that Sonics has a better product line!
Note: I was not allowed to use the Mc**** word by Word Press. Apparently they now feel entitled to censor what ever they please, even though I’m paying them to publish… WTF? But wait! After changing the word back to the original, I was allowed to post…. Strange times.
