Not convenient off of Highway 29. Tiny congested Mcdonalds and bathroom was not good. Food was typical of McDonalds as was service.

Coffee is fresh and the fries are hot at this location and it makes a good stop between Charlottesville and Lynchburg. A small hot fudge sundae is good here too with nuts

Grand babies mean Mcdonalds happy meals. Apparently this Mcdonalds does not believe in ice in any drinks, a tray for food eaten there, a clean dining room, or a bathroom for a mother with babies. A one person stall off the dining room with no privacy or baby changing station meant having to use the car.

We went to this McDonalds for breakfast because it was conveniently located across Route 60 from the Amherst Inn. It offers the usual McDonald breakfast fare. The thing that sets it out is its friendly staff. It's smaller than the ones we have in Northern Virginia, but business was booming when we were there. Business at the drive up window... More

Okay, first of all, great service, and quality (McDonalds) food. Interesting that they have NO condiments out. Have to ask for whatever you need; however it was provided promptly!

We have custom orders and special requests and generally speaking fast food is always hard for us since it's rare for our orders to be correct. Adrian and Cheyenne were fabulous, every detail was right, and served with smiles and friendly faces. These two might be young, but they will go far with that kind of conscientious thoughtfulness and engaging... More

I live in Lovingston and in any other town, pretty much anywhere, you can go to McD's and get roughly the same experience. Read my lips: This. Place. Sucks. VERY slow. Once they had to close bcz there was a kitchen fire, and no one bothered to put a sign on the drive through. I went inside, saw the staff... More

If you have been to one McDonald's you have been to them all. Not to sold on the cleanness of this restaurant. Frequently if ordering at drive thru you are asked to pull forward and wait. You have to give face to face order at drive thru which is not a big deal
