Prior to the internet and social media becoming the big thing, you’d have to either try things for yourself or hear stories from your mates who work there.
Thanks to Reddit, we can all hear about these stories together. A Redditor asked employees of the huge restaurant chain which items you should NOT order. It appeared that the employees were all in agreement with one particular statement. Do not order the fish unless you only have a few minutes to spare. Workers stated that if you order the Filet-O-Fish, they suggest asking it gets made ‘to order’. This is because they are not a hot ticket item so sit around for ages. Doesn’t sound very appealing does it?
Employees are obligated to make you a fresh Filet-O-Fish if requested, remember this.
Another McDonald’s employee pointed this out:
If you’re going to serve me a square piece of fish that tastes the exact same whether I order it in Denver or the south of France, I am under no assumption that it is by any means fresh (I mean it’s square for god sake).
Your sandwich will never look like the above unfortunately.
Thanks to Instagram, it’s time for a reality check:
If you decide to have your made-to-order sandwich, it’ll certainly be worth the wait.
