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.
