Rock N' Roll McDonald's, Saturday at 5 p.m.

Welcome back to the photo series Eater Scenes, where an Eater photographer visits one of the city's establishments at a certain, and very specific, time of day. For Eater's Burger Chains Power hour, the Rock N Roll McDonald's.

Ashok Selvam is the editor of Eater Chicago and a native Chicagoan armed with more than two decades of award-winning journalism. Now covering the world of restaurants and food, his nut graphs are super nutty.

It's a lovely Saturday afternoon in downtown Chicago. That means school kids from out of state, tourists and nearby workers are stopping by the famous Rock N' Roll McDonald's. This 24-hour, two-story behemoth isn't like a standard Golden Arches. Duo drive-thru lanes, escalators, large glass windows and a rock music/pop culture collection make this restaurant unique. McDonald's has evolved from Wesley Willis' time, as workers armed with laptops or children checking Facebook on their smartphones happily hangout and enjoy their burgers and soft-serve ice cream treats.

It's okay to crave a Big Mac™ while looking at the photos from this revived classic.
