I think McDonalds to G&M, is more like rec league to big league.
Geeze, thats one of the silliest comments that I have heard on OH. But, oh well, everybody has an opinion.
Actually, McDonald;s claims their beef is fresh and not frozen. They switched a couple of years ago.
Comparing McDonald's to G&M is like comparing a high school player to a guy at AAA. G&M isn't Ruth Chris but its certainly not a fast food establishment where everything is delivered cooked and frozen to the restaurant.
I like their crab cakes and coleslaw fine. In fact my regular meal is double cake, fries, and slaw.
I've been to Nick's and I guarantee you that they use crabs from Louisiana and Texas to supplement and if they serve them in spring and fall exclusively as the Maryland crabs thin out and dry up in the fall, and really arent active here until May.
