Watch your reciepts at McDonalds in N Utica, they advertise one price on the drive thru menu and charge another. I paid $4.09 plus tax for #2 breakfast w/ sm oj, sign says $3.89 - they also adveritise one price for a value meal which would include a small drink, then when you order they bump it up to a larger size-- it doesn't seem like much, but when you figure the number of customers per day,it makes them a lot of money--Scammers!!!!

I think the advertised price is only for a value meal with coffee. When you substitute OJ for coffee, the price goes up.

The price on the menu boards DO reflect a ceratin size drink...for example...a bfast meal price is listed with a small coffee. Regular menu meals with a medium soda. I mean, do you honestly think that you can get a meal with a milkshake for the same price as a meal with a soda??? Its not rocket science! Every restaurant is this way...get your head out of your ass. On another note, they have an order display right at the order point...that is designed for the customer to see what they are being charged for, ever thought of looking at it???

go to the drive thru--it says $3.89 for a #2 breakfast--$3.89 plus tax .34 = 4.23, I paid $4.09 plus tax .36 = 4.45 --the meal did not have a milk shake with it, the point being, the 3.89 meal advertised on the board comes with a small OJ or coffee,I wanted a small coffee, they bump you up to the next size larger and charge more. Of course you're just a dumb hick from Ilion, the average IQ there is about 70, and everybody is on welfare, so why would you care when you get overcharged, the county picks up the tab anyways-

Whats even worse than the price is when they mess up your order ALMOST EVERY SINGLE TIME! I've thought of calling to speak to a manager and so on, but it seems like it would be a big waste of time.

They've gotten too comfortable asking you to pull up and wait for your food. I know what the problem is there. When I was younger, I noticed there were adults working at McDonald's and they seemed to care and have more understanding for customers. Now, there are too many young kids working there that don't give a damn. A couple months ago, my wife and I went through the N.Genesee McDonald's drive-thru and placed an order. We waited forever at the window, while we watched the teenaged workers sitting on top of the front counter and then chasing each other around the place.

Funny part is that almost every time I have gone to the North Utica McDonald’s, it’s been very good if you go inside to order. Drive-thrus are a joke regardless of what restaurant you go to.

For gosh sakes. Stop putting the crap that they serve into your bodies.
Just go up the street to Price Chopper, buy some lard and some salt, and eat that. It's the same thing and you'll pay much less.

I agree with annoyed & Cheap regarding the extra charges for sauce. What a big joke to limit a certain amount of sauce per size of Chicken Mcnuggets. Is it just the North Utica McDonald's that's charging for extra sauce or all McDonald's?

All McDonalds charge for extra stuff. I was in Canastota and they charged extra for mayo and tarter sauce. Are you kidding me!!!
