McDonald's Is Trying Out A 60-Second Drive-Thru, And We're Lovin' It

One thing that can turn a Happy Meal into an unhappy experience? Waiting for forever at the McDonald's drive-thru.

But according to the Miami Herald, customers at 800 South Florida McDonald's will get to try the out the chain's limited edition, 60-second drive-thru experience.

Available from 12-1 p.m. every day until the end of September (with the exception of Miami, which ends in late August), customers will be given a timer after placing their order at the window. If they don't get their food before the timer, consumers are given a "Be Our Guest" meal voucher for a free sandwich. Sounds like fast food (and a good deal) to us.

First Tofu McNuggets and now this? The wait time in the drive-thru isn't exactly that long (except to your screaming toddler), but McDonald's said the 60-second promotion program "Supports our priority of providing an enjoyable lunch experience for customers in Florida."

Others speculate that McDonald's has "lost relevance" with consumers, so they're fighting back by any means possible to get their fan base back. Fingers crossed the promotion is a-go, and we no longer have to wait minutes upon minutes to get our arteries clogged full of greasy goodness.

    The Art Deco McDonald’s in Clifton Hill, Victoria was once an old hotel.

  • 2 #4) Roswell, New Mexico
    Roswell has had its fair share of strange UFO sightings since the first supposed alien crash landing in 1947, and this one might rank high on that list. Downtown Roswell’s "Unofficial crash site" McDonald’s location boasts a UFO-shaped exterior complete with florescent lights. The restaurant also features flying rockets with Ronald McDonalds in the Playroom. Might be time for a road trip out West! Photo Credit: McDonald's

  • 4 #2) Dallas, Texas
    They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and for one McDonald’s, that is decidedly true. Driving down Montfort Drive, you’ll see the world’s biggest Happy Meal. The inside of the restaurant features Austrian crystal chandeliers, Ralph Lauren wallpaper, granite floors, mahogany booths, and a playroom. Fancy digs for burgers and fries! Photo Credit: Mcdonald’s
  • 5 #1) Taupo, New Zealand
    Taupo, New Zealand has the honor of being home to the only McDonald’s location that includes a decommissioned plane as part of the restaurant. The former DC-3 passenger plane was built in 1943 and ferried passengers around the country for a New Zealand airline company called SPANZ during the 1950s and 1960s. After her passenger life, she carried large loads of manure. The plane’s last flight was in October 1984, and she was brought by road haulage to Taupo by a local aircraft enthusiast and placed in her current position, originally as a feature attraction for a car dealership called the Aeroplane Car Company. McDonald’s purchased the plane in 1990 when they built the McDonald’s, which opened that November. While the restaurant is separate from the plane, diners can enjoy their meals inside the plane. Now that makes for one happy meal! Click Here to More of the World’s Coolest McDonald’s RestaurantsPhoto Credit: © Flickr / Turner
