Paul- McD's is refered to by many American expatriots as "The American Embassy".

The McDonald's in Hawaii also serve saimin and fruit punch.

I'm not sure if those things are served in McDonald's in other states.

I've had the lobster rolls at the McDonalds in Maine, they are just okay, but I liked the regional touch.

wsoxrebel - That green suprise though wouldn't make me very happy either... ugh.

We went to Jordan's furniture in Natick MA. and found a great Lobster Roll at a sister location to the original Revere Beach "Kelly's Roast Beef"

Turns out they have four locations, all in MA. In additional to the above, they are in Danvers. a stand alone building in front of the Liberty Tree Mall, and on Rt. 1 in Saugus.
All are about an hour drive for me, and worth it. They have the lobster rolls year round.

Our McD's in Milwaukee had McBrats last summer. I couldn't bring myself to buy one.

>>In New Mexico, the green things on the McDonalds hamburgers were not pickles - this almost traumatized my kids.<<

I guess someone messed up at the McDonalds you visited; normally you don't get green chile on your burger unless you order a side of it or get a green chile double cheeseburger.

I'm glad McDonalds uses locally grown chile, but there are certainly better places to get a green chile cheeseburger in the state!
