At the time it was just a hamburger stand, as most McDonald’s restaurants were– It wasn’t until the mid-70s that McDonald’s changed to a family style restaurant where customers can bring their families and eat at one of the 100+ seats inside the restaurant. Though it was the first in Montgomery County, it was fifth in the D.C. Metro area, and the 241st in America.
A burger, fries, and a drink would go for under .50 cents!
The Glenmont location was the second McDonald’s to open in MoCo, opening a few years after the Rockville location. It is currently the only two-story McDonald’s in Montgomery County.
