Remember when everyone got worked up over the “McDonald’s of the Future,” a restaurant in Missouri that announced it was planning on offering all-you-can-eat fries as a grand opening, promotional thing? Get your bus tickets, because the restaurant opened today.

“It’s ‘frynally’ here,” the St. Joseph News-Press reported today, after the McDonald’s in St. Joseph, MO opened its doors at 10 a.m.

“Unlimited fries are just the beginning of what’s different about (this restaurant),” owner Chris Habiger told the News-Press. “We’re making a shift from fast food to fast-casual,” Habiger said.

It’s all part of the 6,500-square-foot restaurant’s customizable experience, Habiger said back in April when the world caught word of his crazy idea about all-you-can-eat fries: customers place their orders via self-serve kiosks, where they can personalize their burger or chicken sandwich orders. Those sandwiches come with the option for all-you-can-eat fries.

Employees will then bring the food to customers’ tables once their orders are ready.

“There really are hundreds of different choices to build the burger of your dreams,” Habiger said then.

Again, the unlimited fries offer isn’t going to last forever, and instead will likely just stick around for the restaurant’s first few months. Unless the Deep Fried God decides to finally answer your prayers, that is.
