All Raleigh McDonald’s and Their Ratings

(The Triangle Trend) — Fine wine, caviar, and chocolate truffles are great from time to time, but there’s just about nothing more satisfying than a cheap, delicious, slightly over salted meal. In the NC Triangle, fast food is in abundance and McDonald’s reigns as the quick eats staple. Though there’ll always be people who turn their nose up at the franchise, McDonald’s is the go-to spot for cheap, satisfying meals for lots of folks. From happy meals to Big Macs to salads, and even their shockingly cheap McCafé options, they’re a practical option for any meal of the day, though not the healthiest of cuisine.

Fortunately, diners can rest assured that the health of their cooking environments are high-rated using the official Health Inspection’s sanitation scale. So, here’s where Raleigh’s McDonald’s fall in terms of sanitation rating.
