This is a great McDonald's location, close to busy Karangahape Road, and ideal for a late night drive-thru. I visited about 9pm last night, and whilst the location was busy, there was no long queue at the drive thru. Orders are processed quickly here.
Prices in the drive-thru are the same as restaurant prices.
I've dined in here before, and have always found the restaurant to be clean, with good friendly service. Check out the current $1 frozen coke or fanta drinks - any size!
If you're looking for a late night McDonald's venue close to the city, this one is recommended. The other nearby McDonald's are Queen Street, and Pt Chevalier - this venue is mid-way between the two, and accessible to Ponsonby on late nights.
