McDonald's has a special place in the hearts and stomachs of people all over the world, I mean it's practically a staple in the American diet. You know that no matter what, Mcdonald's will always be there to serve you a Big Mac or chicken nuggets But what about their ice cream machines?

If you're a fan of McDonald's soft serve, you've probably had the experience of going to your local restaurant, eagerly anticipating a cold and creamy treat, only to be told that the ice cream machine is broken. It's a frustrating experience and one that's all too common. But fear not, because there's a website that can help you avoid this disappointment:


Yes, you read that right. is a website that can tell you whether or not the ice cream machine at any McDonald's location in the world is currently functioning. And yes, that of course includes Amarillo and the West Texas area. And it turns out that we have our fair share of broken ice cream machines.


Of course, the fact that a website like even exists is a testament to the frequency with which McDonald's ice cream machines break down. It's almost become a running joke at this point, with memes and social media posts poking fun at the ubiquitous "out of order" signs that seem to be a permanent fixture on McDonald's ice cream machines.

But hey, at least we can all have a laugh about it now that we have to help us avoid disappointment. And who knows, maybe one day McDonald's will figure out how to make an ice cream machine that doesn't break down every five minutes. In the meantime, we'll just have to keep relying on the power of the internet to guide us to our sweet, creamy treats.

Amarillo Landmarks: Negative Yelp Reviews

Yelp can be a strange and angry place. That's what I found out recently when I decided to sort the reviews by "lowest rating" first.

I was okay with the people upset over bad service and what not. But I came across a few reviews that, for lack of a better word, left me speechless in their scathing negative reviews on some of Amarillo's most iconic places. Prepare your self for plenty of head shaking and "I dunno" shrugs.
