When I mentioned to some trick-or-treater's that we were leaving
for Zion's that night and heading for Barstow, they said, "Oh that's
the place with the world's biggest McDonald's." I am not sure if that is
true or not, but it is indeed a large McDonald's with some unusual features.
(Just in case your wondering there are 22 McDonald's within .5 miles of the
route we traveled to Barstow. McDonald's website will map out all the McDonald's
along your travel route. Perhaps BillJG should plan a annual McDonald's trip).
First of all the sign is much larger than normal
And for reasons I could not fathom they also have a water tower
The building itself is two stories tall, and while this is exceptional in the
states, overseas in Asia they are often multistoried.
You'll notice in the picture above there are train cars attached to the restaurant,
again I have no idea why they did this.
But you can eat inside of them
The inside itself is also quite large, although I was disappointed in the
fact that I had to get my own syrup at the condiments station and that it was
All of this makes this McDonald's a tourist site, note the special line for tours
So if your ever in Barstow, and I hope it is only because your on your way
to somewhere else, stop at this McDonald's, if not to eat, then at least to
see the wonder.
