    World's biggest McD's in Olympic Park.

    World’s largest McDonald’s for London Olympics becomes controversy | The News Tribe

    Looks like it will fit 1,500 guests, and there will also be several more locations around the Olympic area. Kind of sad that it's amongst the world's greatest athletes and also that it's the only brand name food option. They claim that the games couldn't go on with sponsors like McDonalds.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    McDonald's isn't the problem. It's people not knowing how to limit their food intake & select healthier options.

    Exactly. Its not where you eat, its what you are eating when you get there. You can put together a calorie friendly meal anywhere.

    A burger and fries at McDonalds will have MUCH less calories and fat than at a "Chili's, Applebees, etc"

    I agree, and I like McDonald's as much as the next guy. There is just the juxtaposition of it that I find kind of sad, and I think they should at least have another brand name food option available.

    Also, it's 15,000 people at once, not 1,500.
