Billions and billions of hamburgers, and so many of them, to judge by the Yelp reviews, served to unhappy people. But why would anyone post a review of McDonald’s on Yelp? This is a question that people who post reviews of McDonald’s on Yelp often begin by asking. (“I’m not sure what is compelling me…” writes a Chicago customer).

“The backyard of an abandoned house is better and more functional than this one. STAY AWAY.” (Miami, Florida)
