Family visit, shambolic ordering system, you have to specify a zone you are sitting in prior to actually getting a table? Mop bucket with dirty water left next to table for duration of visit Staff are courteous.

Disabled spaces outside removed for a larger eating area pointless in wet Northern Ireland . Inside crowded and dirty. Sat my disabled brother at a dirty table which was still dirty when I came back with food. Member of staff sat at next table face painting . Watched as a member of the public moved plastic seats out of the... More

I decided to give here a try after this branch had a renovation. To my surprise, their card machines weren't working and I had a cheeky staff member who told me I wasn't prepared when I explained I had no cash. Thankfully I was able to get money from a friend. The food was just the same standard as normal... More

A complete refurbishment has not improved the dining experience. Seating area seems smaller than before and less welcoming and appealing. Décor is sort of 60's style and definitely not an improvement. The night we were there the new fangled touch screen ordering system had broken down and they were taking cash only. Full credit to the staff and the new... More

Stopped off for a quick burger in the new fully refurbished McDonalds. It looks fresh and clean but the number of seats has been reduced and the number of service personnel at the tills has been cut. Finding a table at the old restaurant was no problem, even at the busiest times. With this new layout, we visited at a... More

Had to stop for food. Im not a big McDonalds fan and Ballymena always seems in chaos on the floor and staff. Gluten free always a disappointment. Good for a quick (but I feel expensive) bite and away.

Unlikely ever to lose its appeal and bad reviews won't make a difference to the obviously captivated clientele who cram into this too small outlet creating a chaotic environment on occasions. Best avoided at peak times.

I was early for work and in need of a coffee so I stopped off here and ordered a regular coffee. It was quiet when I arrived so loads of space in the free at park. Service very quick and the coffee was piping hot and tasted ok. Restaurant was clean and tidy as was the toilet. Didn't fancy the... More

Typical McDonalds, food was cold, my wife just wanted a plain Quarter Pounder, thus meaning you have to wait ages. When I made my order, I had to correct the person 3 times, who kept putting double orders in or wrong drinks etc.
