(Updated at 4:05 p.m.) A new McDonald’s, sporting shiny gadgets and screens throughout, has opened in Rosslyn.
Located in the base of the new Central Place apartment tower at 1800 N. Moore Street, near where a standalone McDonald’s once stood, the fast food eatery was open for business and bustling around mid-afternoon Wednesday.
The restaurant is among the chain’s most modern, with large flat-screen ordering kiosks, flat-screen soda dispensers, a display case for McCafe pastries and sleek decor. There are also flat-screen menus above the manned ordering counter, for those who prefer to place an order with a human. Patio seating in a plaza just outside allows for outdoor dining.
The opening was not without its hiccups. At one point this afternoon an irate customer started loudly complaining about the wait for his order, which was apparently lost to cyberspace after being placed on one of the kiosks.
“Oh, here we go,” said one of the other dozen or so people also waiting around, watching for their order number to appear on a flat-screen display above the pick-up counter. The irate man’s order eventually appeared.
