TheDailyMeal: Fast Food Menus: A Look Back

8 of 10

2) McDonald’s

The classic McDonald’s menu is just that: classic. Its small menu of burgers, fries, shakes, and beverages remains the iconic fast-food menu, the basis on which all competitors drew their inspiration. Over the years, however, the menu expanded in legendary ways. The Big Mac was rolled out nationwide in 1968, the Happy Meal made its debut in 1979, and the Chicken McNugget followed in 1983. Since then, plenty of other options have joined the originals, including a wide variety of burgers, chicken sandwiches, snacks, salads, breakfast items, and, of course, a McRib. The original offerings, however, are still there, and haven’t changed much since their inception more than 50 years ago. The classic $0.15 hamburger now costs a very reasonable $1.62; $0.19 cheeseburgers now cost $1.65 (shockingly, the price difference between the two items has actually decreased over the years!)
