For sure, I mean if I want some junk food I could order from Burger King, McDonalds etc.. via deliveroo/uber eats but I could also walk <100 meters to my local Tesco express, grab a rustlers, bottle of coke or milkshake, some of those freezer fries you just throw in the microwave etc.. and I’d have a cheaper and arguably better junk food meal.

I mean the freezer fries come in multi packs ditto to the cokes/Pepsi etc.. so can just keep a supply of those at home and just use when I get the occasional discounted Rustlers. Way cheaper than a fast food place.
those frozen microwave fries are disgusting and taste like the cardboard box they come in!

Burger King is amazing at making me go to the bog shortly after taking it. :o

Mc Donalds their stuff a lot of the time seems barely warm enough to eat

Prices and food quality aside - anyone really having bad luck with delivery apps? It feels like, every third order is a complete shambles with something missing, wrongly prepared, or receiving someone elses order entirely?

This one is like 5 mins away, there's one even closer and the food to me still seems not really warm enough. Juat the way it is.
It shouldn't be the way it is though.

What's struck me there is that you have two McDonald's within five minutes of you.

Stick it in a warm (not cooking hot, just warm) oven for 5 minutes when you get back to warm it back up to the temp it was 5 minutes ago ??

I'd normally eat it in the car, the one time I ate inside the foood court it seemed a bit warmer. Though I find it hard to believe in the time I trot back to the car it gets that much cooler.

Only time I’ve had that issue is when ordering from a shop on a delivery app, takeaway orders have generally been OK. (Aside from one ridiculous McDonalds order where some delivery people screwed up/cancelled and the food arrived cold - I complained and got a full refund).

Tbh I've had a lot of maccies and KFC recently and the chips have never been what j would describe hot, and life's too short to go and complain - especially in takeaway/drive thru sitchy.
