Rock N Roll McDonald's

Rock N Roll McDonald's The Rock N Roll McDonald's is a flagship McDonald's restaurant located in Chicago, Illinois. It is one of the most famous McDonald's locations in the world and was once the busiest in the United States.

The restaurant/museum, located in the River North section of the Near North Side community area of Chicago, a few city blocks west of the Magnificent Mile, has been a tourist attraction since it opened in 1983. Its present building opened in 2005 and has a maximum occupancy of 300, which is about three times the standard patron seating capacity. The site has a rock and roll exhibit in a building adjacent to the restaurant and a small upstairs McDonald's museum display. The building features the first two-lane McDonald's drive-through, relatively luxurious decor, a café, flat panel televisions and a green roof.RestaurantMcDonald's has had a restaurant at 600 N. Clark Street since 1983, though the new building was redeveloped and reopened on April 15, 2005 as a bi-level flagship restaurant/museum with a two lane drive through. This is the first McDonald's location with a two-lane drive-through. The reopening coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Des Plaines, Illinois restaurant which was opened by Ray Kroc on April 15, 1955. Rock N Roll McDonald's is the location where the corporation kicked off its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the franchise. Among the celebrities in attendance were Colin Powell and Elton John. At the time of the 2004 demolition, the location was the 3rd busiest in the United States and 12th in the world. In the early 90s, it had been the busiest in the United States. It was expected to increase its sales revenue rankings from 3rd in the United States and 12th in the world with the renovation and redevelopment.
