What strikes me most about Yelp are the extreme particularities from each customer regarding the service of even the most derelict fast food joint. These are people who take their "jobs" as amateur restaurant reviewers very, very seriously. For instance, McDonald's customers are insistent upon being provided ketchup pumps over packets. After seeing this rather satisfying phrase repeated multiple times across different cities, I concluded that McDonald's Yelp reviewers had a poetic voice that I did not see rise from any other fast food customer base.

Here, some free verse poems (there is no more appropriate format) comprised of the most poetic tidbits culled from from reviewers of America's favorite burger  establishment in major and not so major U.S. cities.
