Make My Mighty Wings Sauceless
I'm not the only one who thinks McDonald's menu is ridiculously complex.
First of all, I love the new Mighty Wings and have eaten them three or four times a week since the introduction. They taste good enough to eat without the dipping sauces so I ignored that issue until I read in a press article that Mighty Wings come with "a choice 9 dipping sauces". At first I thought that was a typo or bad reporting but it turns out to be true.
So when a crew person asks me what kind of sauce I want I ask (like millions of others) "What do you have?". The list is so long most crew people have to take a breath part way through.
Yesterday I went inside a McDonald's to order and an affable collage age man took my order. I again asked my sauce question and even using the POS screen as a guide he got confused, shook his head, and said "We have too many dipping sauces".
This twenty something gentleman knows more about what's going on in a real McDonald's restaurant than anyone at Oak Brook headquarters.
