The Original Maccies Menu Was So Simple Yet So Effective

Is there such a thing as a bad Maccies? Going to throw it out there and say no.

It's not exactly the greatest food under the sun, but it hits the spot and you know exactly where you stand with it.

Nowadays, there's all sorts you can get off the McDonald's menu - a Chicken Legend, a Big Tasty, McNuggets, wraps, a McCoffee, a McYoghurt, McShetland Pony and a McNan's Roast Potatoes. It's going to get ridiculous soon.

Although the current menu is full of sure-to-be-heart-attack snacks, the first menu Maccies ever had was so simple that it'll leave most of us wishing we could order from that instead.

The original McDonald's was opened by Dick and Mac McDonald in 1940, when the 'McDonald's Bar-B-Q' was opened in San Bernardino, California.

Eight years later, Dick and Mac closed the restaurant for three months, refurbishing it into a format that is far more similar to today's Maccies, and introduced the first Golden Arches.

Eventually, a business man named Ray Kroc helped Dick and Mac franchise the business out, overseeing the restaurant's expansion and making it into a global phenomenon.

Back then you had the choice between a beef burger and a cheeseburger, as apposed to today when you have to make the decision between a chicken sandwich, a burger, wraps, PlayStation, Xbox, football and rugby.

Aside from that, the main thing to take away from this is that we've all been buying burgers off a guy called Dick for nearly 80 years.
