There’s No Other McDonald’s In The World Like This One In Pennsylvania
We probably pass the Golden Arches multiple times each day, no matter where we live in the state. Each has its own unique location and even features, but there’s a pretty good chance you won’t find a fast food restaurant like this McDonald’s in Pennsylvania anywhere else in the world. That’s because it does more than dish up popular fast food fare; it also serves a fascinating glimpse of history.

The McDonald’s on Lincoln Highway in North Huntingdon looks like most of its counterparts – down to the Golden Arches and the sleek new exterior design.
However, when you walk through the front door, you’ll notice something different. A massive Big Mac. A bust of a man holding the iconic sandwich. Museum cases filled with memorabilia.
Doubling as a fast food restaurant
and the Big Mac Museum, this Pennsylvania McDonald’s is well worth a pilgrimage, especially if you’re a fan of the famous sandwich and fries.
The Big Mac, after all, was invented by Western Pennsylvanian Jim Delligatti in nearby Uniontown. After hearing constant complaints from customers about how boring McDonald’s burger was, Delligatti sprang into action.
He turned that plain burger into a masterpiece, inventing a special sauce in 1967. Customers couldn’t get enough of the brand new burger, but corporate headquarters? It took little notice.
Finally, a few years later, that burger – two burgers, special sauce, cheese, pickles, onions, and lettuce – and its popularity got the attention it was due, and the Big Mac was rolled out worldwide.
The rest, as they say, is history. Today, estimates say that 1.5-million Big Macs are sold worldwide every day.
The McDonald’s in North Huntingdon features memorabilia from the fast food restaurant, giving you a fascinating glimpse into the past. Carve out a bit more time than you would for a normal visit, so you can check out the museum.
Don’t worry about the kiddos getting bored. The North Huntingdon location also features one of McDonald’s popular indoor play areas.
