Only Days Remaining Wrigley Field McDonald's — Yelpers Will (Not?) Miss You

CHICAGO — RIP to the soon-to-close McDonald's across the street from Wrigley Field, which will shut its doors to Cubs fans and other diners March 1 to make way for a hotel.

But don't get too nostalgic. A new McDonald's will be built inside the hotel development, which is estimated to finish in 20 months, officials said.

For many, the McDonald's elicits fond — and definitely not-so-fond — memories, as noted below in Yelp reviews of the restaurant at 3620 N. Clark St.

No nuggets can be saved by great customer service.

An acceptable place for a 3 a.m. meal, especially compared to the nearby Taco Bell, according to Peter N. Of course, it's no "best Taco Bell ever."

It's way better than Burger King, according to this Yelper.

Opposite end of the spectrum: Not good at all, and not the best decor.


This guy apparently never even tried the food.

What's a "McPick 2?"

Bad food, bad service.Sounds like an attack on VIPs and the media.

A "pretty pleasant" experience = 5 stars on Yelp.

Nightmare drive-thru experience when starving.Biking for a shake in the drive-thru: our hero.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
