CosMc’s Reviews 2024

I recently visited CosMc’s, a unique take on McDonald’s, and I’m excited to share my experience. The menu was filled with an amazing variety of drinks, including many coffee options and several breakfast items. I was intrigued by their “Signature Galactic Boosts” section, which featured teas, sodas, slushies, frappes, and coffees. They also had tons of customization options like espresso shots, syrups, and boba.


The drink selection was intriguing, with items like a Sour Cherry Energy Burst, Churro Frappe, and Popping Pear Slush. There were even savory options like a spicy queso sandwich and a creamy avocado tomatillo sandwich. Some familiar McDonald’s items like the Egg McMuffin were also on the menu.

Although I wanted to try the Churro Frappe, it was sold out, so I went for the Chai Frappe Burst instead. This chai frappe with boba, whipped cream, and cinnamon was a delightful surprise that tasted a bit like horchata. I’d definitely order it again. Then there was the Popping Pear Drink, a prickly pear slush that became my favorite. It was refreshing, not too sweet, and the boba added a great touch.

I also tried the S’mores Cold Brew, but it wasn’t as impressive. The mix of syrupy sweetness and bitterness didn’t work well for me.

The pretzel bites with spicy queso sauce were next. The pretzel bites were soft and fluffy, and the spicy cheese sauce added a nice kick. Then came the McPops, doughnut holes with fillings like hazelnut, cookie butter, and apple cinnamon. Each flavor was delicious, especially the cookie butter.


For sandwiches, the Creamy Avocado Tomatillo Sandwich was a good choice, with a fluffy egg, bacon, and a tasty avocado sauce. But the star was the Spicy Queso Sandwich – a tasty combination of egg, sausage, jalapeno chips and spicy queso sauce.

Overall, my trip to CosMc’s was a fantastic experience, and I’m looking forward to going back for more!

I had the opportunity to chat with several locals who recently visited the restaurant to get their firsthand experiences and opinions.
