MACCA'S meals on wheels - it's time to deliver. That's the result of a straw poll of 443 people conducted by The Observer this week.
A local McDonald's home delivery service has not been ruled out.
The concept won the support of 48% of people.
While 52% said they didn't support the idea, which is being trialled in Hervey Bay, the plan did not overly concern Gladstone GP Super Clinic dietician Megan Leane.
"I'd get them to read the menu wisely," she said. "There are some good hidden options."
Gladstone resident Lauren New Batterham said she would appreciate a home delivery occasionally.
"I've had moments where I wish Maccas delivered," she wrote on the Observer's Facebook site.
"Or anyone delivered at that time I desperately wanted junk food."
Amy Brown said the idea could be extended to other fast food outlets.
"I would like Red Rooster to deliver," she said.
But not everyone was happy with the idea.
Matty Ord said a new approach was needed.
"Make cooking classes mandatory at schools and fresh produce cheaper than fast foods," he said.
Leigh Williams agreed: "Just make fresh produce available full stop."
McDonald's said Gladstone could get home delivery if the trial was a success.
There are five McDonald's outlets in the region.
"At this stage, there are no immediate plans for delivery in Gladstone," a McDonald's spokesperson said.
"We will look to extend the service once the current trials are completed."
