Fairbury’s own McDonald’s Family Restaurant – not the Golden Arches but, with a real Ronald McDonald – Ron and Sue are back! The restaurant is close enough to being fully restored (and then some). It is revamped, remodeled, updated, and upgraded.
After a devastating fire last July one of Fairbury’s dining Icons was devastated but, with some rather intense infrastructure restoration “The Place” for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is once again lighting up it’s marquee sign and opening the doors for those who are looking for that early early morning hot beverage to those of us that like to have dinner late in the evening.
They will be open Monday through Sunday from 5:30am to 10:00pm, and they will have most of the classic menu items that they had before (although the menu itself will be brand new) with the addition of aged steaks, barbeque brisket, and an array of baked goods prepared by the popular Marjorie Yoder who has a great command over the likes of sugar and flour and such.
About 75% of the restaurant’s interior is brand new – the kitchen, the dining room, the flooring throughout and the bathrooms have been redone and upgraded. They have all new equipment and have added a steam oven for vegetables and meat as well as a free standing glass display case that will provide a tempting look at all those desserts by Marjorie. One other addition is the availability of beer and wine so if you like your dining libations to have a little “kick” to them you now have that option.
All in all a “Class Act” just got classier and there are a whole lot of us out here who say, “Welcome back McDonald’s, we missed you!” The broasted chicken, the charbroiled burgers, the family style lunches and dinners, and, now, a whole host of new items and choices with a 21st century backdrop – looking good in the neighborhood and, thanks Ron and Sue, for bringing it back – the legend continues.
P.S. – the old crowd will understand this – Georgia has, not just her coffee, but Christmas songs picked out – yeah, songs – so come on in and see (hear) what that brings to the table. 5:30 am Farmers and Truck Drivers – who’s buying the first round of coffee?
