Yes, it was the one next to Asda.

I believe the Reform Street branch was the first ever McDonald's in Scotland unless I'm mistaken

I thought it was Union Street in Glasgow? I went to the opening (my gran knew the franchisee), ate two Big Macs and was sick.

[edit] You're quite right, as this Scotsman article shows.

Not that long ago I came across this McDonalds in London stuck in a time warp:

https://goo.gl/maps/RpiEJofRTbP2

It's been refurbished in the last few months (it was certainly still in its original state in May 2017) but this is the only restaurant I've come across in many years that's still missing the 2006/2016 refreshed looks.

Are there any other time warp McDonalds out there?

That's quite a find, I consider any which doesn't have touchscreens as a time warp, never mind pre-green era ones.

I suspect there are a fair few in the States, for whatever reason they often rebuild from the ground up rather than refurb. I presume this one is cheating a bit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldest_Mc ... restaurant

Probably this one too:

As I mentioned the other week. Not sure what I make of the bright yellow POS - can't quite tell who the demographic is that this poster is aimed at.

Has this made it to anywhere else in the country yet?

McDonald's have discontinued their 99p sundaes.

On the plus side, they've brought back the beloved Smarties McFlurry.

Did it ever go away? The one they're advertising now has a chocolate sauce. I found it a bit underwhelming.
