McDonald’s Announces National Table-Side Service

Looks like your future visits to Mcdonald’s might get just a little more personal. The burger chain announced Thursday, according to Business Insider, that they’ll be implementing table-side service.

This means, you no longer have to stand in line at the chain’s counter to order, step aside, and wait for your food to be called while you peruse through email.

Available at all 14,000 McDonald’s locations in the United States, customers can now place orders when they walk into the restaurant lobby though digital kiosks. After they figure out what size Big Mac they prefer to satiate their appetites with, they’ll have the option of getting their food delivered to them or picking it up at the counter.

Currently, only 500 locations in the US are offering this service.

McDonald’s has officially taken an entire step of human interaction away from patrons. For those looking for a quick meal, this could easily be a blessing. However, customers will still have the option of ordering up front and interacting with McDonald’s employees.

The company states that they are trying to make the “roll out” happen as soon as possible, though with no hard deadline announced. Until then, it’s burger grilling businesses as usual.

Restaurant Finds A Brilliant Way To Serve S’MORES

Snow-S'mores-01

Every time this dude Nick, AKA the Grubfiend, hits me up, I know we’re gonna roll on some crazy food adventure. Take this trip to California-based dessert spot Snowopolis, for example. These guys actually made table side S’MORES.

We found this spot in Montebello, Calif., not too far from the freeway. Sure, Snowopolis is known for their giant portions of Hawaiian shaved ice. The thing that caught our eye, however, was definitely the s’mores.

The entire menu is customizable letting you choose what kind of graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate and other sweet toppings you could want. There are seriously dozens of different items to choose from.

Scott Leotti, owner of Snowopolis, spoke about how he came up with the idea to do table side s’mores.

I wanted a dessert that was unique and would go well in a lounge-type atmosphere, especially at night. S’mores can be roasted all year which makes it the perfect treat. I wanted to come up with ways so the customer can invent it & we just put it together. So I did just that.

We grabbed a few choice toppings and flavors and decided to have some fun with it. We were served a tray of s’more ingredients. A heat cell to roast the marshmallows sat at the center of the tray.

The result is this beautiful stack of s’mores.

Totally worth getting chocolate and marshmallow into all the crevices of my phone and camera.
