“Rowdy place, greasy burgers.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

We ate here one late night recently, not too much else open in Banff, and our burgers were really greasy and looked like they had been sloppily prepared and thrown together. Too much ketchup also. As for the atmosphere, it was horrid. There were all these obnoxious rowdy teens all over the place trying to ruin customers' meals. We were told that they are workers in the hotels in this town. What do they do here? Clean toilets? They sure didn't smell too good either. Like they hadn't showered for days. Some of the young guys came across as being gigolos as they kept harrassing us girls while we were eating. It was very annoying. The staff did nothing about them or the noise. There was also one bathroom open (probably for security reasons) and the door was all steel. The bathroom floor was filthy and had pieces of toilet paper strewn all over it. We were reluctant to use the toilets. There were no toilet seat covers either. We won't be eating there again and don't recommend it. It was a depressing experience.

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

Great service. It's Mc Donald's food, so it tasted like the one we have in our town. The place was clean. The best tables are in the back of the restaurant.

“Fast Reliable Breaky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Okay - I don't really ever rate a McDonald's but we slipped in here one morning on our way for a hike and the egg McMuffins were hot, fresh and delish. We went to Tim Hortons the next day and they were no where near as good.

“One way to save $”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2012

One of the less expensive places to eat in Banff. Other than that it is just your average McDonalds!

“If not for the tourist trade this place would not make it!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

This McDonald's manages to stay open only because a person can get food here for less money than it would cost to eat anywhere else in the area and that it is patronized by the tourist trade. I cannot imagine locals putting up with the lousy service or food quality. Although I am not what would be considered a fan of McDonald's, this place is about as bad as it gets. If you want botched orders and cold food this is the place to go in Bnaff, otherwise, you would likely want to pass it by.
