Fries with your "BIG MAK"?

I’m going to keep this in mind the next time I find myself strumming my fingers wating in a slow fast food line....
In 1990 nearly 30,000 people lined up to be the first to eat the famous “Big Mak” at the grand opening of Moscow’s first McDonald’s.  It was the world’s largest McDonald’s with 28 cash registers and enough seating for 700 people...

(this is the opening of the first Parisian location - but gives the same idea)

Russians were unaccustomed to eating finger food/sandwiches.  Some ate their Big Mak with a spoon while others pulled it apart and ate it layer by layer. 

Today - there are McDonald's all over town with "walk up" windows rather than drive throughs.  There is always a line...
