Bornes Mc Do

At McDonald's opposite Rive Gauche train station, where many tourists like to eat French specialities (me? Ironic?!), these automatic order and pay machines make queuing up a little faster.
--------------------------
Chez Mc Do près de la gare Rive Gauche, où les touristes aiment venir manger des spécialités françaises (quoi, je suis ironique ?), ces bornes automatiques rendent l'attente de la commande un peu moins longue.

They tried automatic ordering kiosks at our local McDonald's and they weren't very well received. Not sure why, exactly. Strange, you would think people would be crazy for them.

I don't like McDonald's at all, but I've never seen such a system in this country. Maybe it's because I haven't been in a McDonald's in a very long time. Looks quite efficient.

I know you're probably sound asleep at this point, but when you awake all peppy and ready to face a new day, I hope you will find my email...

My country's great curses upon the world. I have never seen these order-and-pay machines, but why does it say order instead of commander?

Wow, I've never seen this before! I noticed that it said "order" too (unless that's part of another word we can't see). I find this photo fascinating - the American concept of McDonalds in such a "foreign" design.

To answer your question, no I've never thought about a window book before. But I like the idea; at least it would provide an excuse to keep taking pictures of windows!

j'aurais du mal, a aller dans un resto (mais les fast-food sont ils des restos ? ) et faire la queue derrière une borne....mais c'est originale, est ce que la borne parle avec le client ?.

I haven't ever seen anything like this, I am not sure to like it, but I'm willing to try...

Interesting but I'll have to say 'no thanks'. I don't think it is real food. MB

Ben c'est une généralité maintenant chez Mc Do, ces bornes.
Mc Do est tout de même fort pratique lorsque tu te déplaces (sinon tu t'arrêtes trop longtemps) aussi je connais ceux de France et de Navarre et je peux te dire qu'il y a tout de même de subtiles différences entre eux. Tiens, j'ai découvert samdi qu'il y en a un en haut de la rue de Belleville près de la station Pyrénées

Is McDonalds popular in France?

Laurent said...

Le numéro 1 de la restauration en France ! Pas pire que certain bistrot et leur horrible jambon beurre

Rebecca said...

Haven't seen those is the US. Other than at the deli counter on the supermarkets.

C'est très High-tech chez toi les MacDo! chez nous, on a encore la vieille generation!

We have nothing like that here.

paulboo said...

Can't imagine why anyone wants to eat this stuff, especially in France!!! And getting it faster too, makes the heart failure arrive quicker too no doubt!!?? :-/

Halcyon said...

On n'a pas encore ce systeme aux US. Mais ca va arriver certainement.

Haut cuisine - NOT!

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Nice shot, Ciel. I need a machine that makes me NOT order. :-)

Not a fan of McD's but this is an interesting way to order. Haven't seen this here in the states...yet.

Poor little baby. Being introduced to fat, salt and grease at such a young age!:((

moi je suis pour l'allongement de l'attente chez mac do et peut être celle ci pourras t elle être mise à profit en nettoyant les abords de ces resto gastronomique

Dina said...

That is very fast fast food.

Clueless in Boston said...

The only similar thing I've seen in Boston is paying for your parking meter like this. You pay by credit card (yes, parking is expensive in Boston:) and get a little sticky piece of paper you stick on your window to prove you paid so you don't get a ticket.

Photo contemporaine; qui illustre que l'être humain ce cherche; manque de dialogue; la chaleur humaine disparait pour le business.

I have not seen machines like this in Norway, and I guess it will take some time before we get them...
McDonald`s is still popular, but these days most people eat more healthy food.

tapirgal said...

I've never seen anything like it. If you're going to have fast food, I think it's best to make it really fast!
