McDonald's Truck Opens at Nyugati Railway Station


A McDonald's truck has opened at Nyugati Railway Station to serve cheeseburgers and Big Macs while the chain's Nyugati tér restaurant is closed for renovation, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The McDonald's on Nyugati tér opened 34 years ago, in 1990, and is considered one of the most beautiful McDonald's restaurants in the world. It is part of the last stage of the restaurant chain's renovation program in Hungary and is expected to be completed in six months at a cost of more than HUF 1.5 billion.

The interior of the listed building will be rebuilt using special interior design elements and natural materials. Located on the main wall of the building, which shares a common wall with the Nyugati Railway Station, one of the architectural symbols of Budapest, the railway station, which blends historical architectural styles such as neo-classicism and neo-romanticism.

These stylistic elements are still present in the restaurant today and will be retained after the renovation. But in terms of the dining experience, the restaurant chain will be very much 21st century, with a digital guest experience delivered by the "Experience of the Future" restaurant concept. McDonald's says. In addition, it will use natural elements, , including handcrafted pieces.

In the meantime, the fast food chain offers a curated selection of small and large sandwiches, coffee and desserts in the truck and at the McDonald's truck next to the closed restaurant. Among others, diners can get the classic McChicken, Big Mac, and Cheesy McRoyal (the Hungarian equivalent of the Quarter Pounder with Cheese) sandwiches.

The McDonald's truck is subject to the same quality control standards and offers the same freshness and quality as other restaurants of the chain in Hungary, the press release notes.
