A McDonald's customer in Sydney has been questioned by police after failing to return the wrong takeaway order. The customer decided to eat the incorrect order - which exceeded his purchase by approximately $17 - to save himself a trip back to the store. This resulted in police arriving at his house to accuse him of stealing. (Yes, really.) So is it legal to keep takeaway food you receive by accident?
"Is McDonald's open on Good Friday?" "What about Easter Sunday?" "Is it open on Easter Monday?" These are questions our intrepid fast food reporters get asked every April. Personally, we're not sure how anybody could have room for a Big Mac and fries after all those chocolate eggs - but some Aussies have prodigious appetites.
As we've opined in the past, burritos are the perfect fast food. They're even more perfect than pizza (case in point: you can't wrap a pizza in foil and stick it in your jacket pocket.) This infographic from Fairmont Hotels breaks down everything you need to know about seven popular burrito styles - from their storied history to the ingredients you need to make your own.
Dear Lifehacker, I work from home and buy myself a takeaway lunch once or twice a week. Unfortunately, the only options near my house are a burger shop or a bakery that sells hot pies. Neither store has any nutritional information on their menu, so I'm not sure which is worse. Am I better off grabbing the burger or the meat pie?
"Does KFC home deliver?" "Does McDonald's home deliver?" "Do Subway home deliver?"
Admit it: you've probably asked yourself one of the above questions while lounging at home on a Saturday night. We all have. Sometimes you get a craving for a specific fast food but lack the energy/wherewithal/sobriety to get in your car and head to the drive-thru. The good news is that a lot of Australia's favourite fast food restaurants will deliver straight to your doorstep - they just don't heavily advertise it.
For the past few years, McDonald's Australia has been inviting customers to grill the company about its products on the Our Food Your Questions website. No question is off-limits, including whether Quarter Pounders have shrunk in size (they have) and whether McMuffins use free-range eggs (they don't). While this was obviously a PR stunt designed to engage customers and their wallets, the amount of transparency still surprised us. Here are 15 of the most revealing -- and weirdest -- responses from the campaign so far.
The major benefit of ordering pizza is that you’re taking care of dinner AND the next day’s breakfast (and lunch, if you can stretch it). Pizza is one of those magical products that can taste better on the second day – provided you know exactly what you're trying to achieve. Here’s how to get the best results when reheating pizza.
Pizza Hut has announced it will be giving away 10,000 margherita pizzas between August 4 and August 6. According to the company, there's "no catch" - just free pizza. However, before you start salivating at the thought of a delicious cheesy lunch, there's something you need to know from the small print.
We have some potentially bad news for Domino's fans: according to a report in the SMH, the fast food giant is killing off the Chef's Best range. Instead, it will serve up a new range of pizzas that are reportedly smaller and more expensive. It's all part of an image revamp that will see the brand marketing itself towards premium takeaway lovers. Here are the details.
If you were on Twitter in 2014, you doubtlessly remember the Great Potato Dialect War that waged across Australia's state borders for weeks on end. Like most wars, it got ugly, and there were no clear winners on either side.
Now, interstate hostilities have flared up again via a spate of snarky game reviews on JB Hi-Fi. It's time we put an end to this conflict once and for all...
Lord Of The Fries is giving away free fries today to celebrate National Fry Day. (Yep, that's a thing, apparently.) Here's what you need to know to score your freebies!
