If you’re from the Aberdeen area, I want you to admit something. You’re going to tell the truth about having been to this McDonald’s on route 40 at some point on a Sunday morning, hungover, feeling like death, ordering pancakes and coffee to help ease the pain.

If you’re like me, you’ve taken the back way to Beards Hill Plaza by coming in from Paradise Road, down past Maxa, in order to elude the traffic lights that can be a little slow. With the construction on Route 22, it has become even slower to get through the area, so scurrying down what once was a back road was always a little faster. That’s about to change.
