New McCafe at 14th and U St, NW Trying the Old “Closed for Maintenance” Shtick


But if you look to the left you can see the pink department of health closure sign. Usually only lasts a couple of days. Thanks to a reader for sending.

  • I wish this McDonald’s was closed forever.

    • You don’t have to eat there. Would you rather have another small plates restaurant?

      • +1. I don’t eat there because I care about my health. It would be nice to have another affordable, nutritious, on-the-go, local establishment here that doesn’t generate tons of litter and encourage loitering.

    • What? This place is AMAZING people watching. Lots of drunk guy hugs too

  • Oh boy. Things have to be really bad for a McDonald’s to get shut down. They’ve been running lots of restaurants for a long time, so they’ve actually gotten pretty good at hygiene and pest control.

  • It could be something as simple as a leak or water issue which sort of is a maintenance issue, right?

    • Correct. Plumbing, vent hoods, fire suppression, hot water. It does not automatically mean mice, rats and bugs.

  • i have been lobbying hard for a chipotle here, but alas, McDs just won’t die.
