Patrons  at a lower downtown Manhattan McDonald’s did everything they could to avoid indigestion after a man wielded a small handheld axe and caused thousands of dollars worth of damage. 

In a hellish incident that the New York Post cleverly termed “a Big Mac attack,” Bronx resident Michael Palacios allegedly drew the weapon at the Delancey Street McDonald’s at 2:25 a.m. after getting into an argument with three other men. 

The Post reported that the skirmish quickly “escalated into a rampage.”

Once the violence broke out, many of the late night cheeseburger lovers got a lot more action than a late night midnight snack. 

Video recorded of the incident revealed a scenario in which the three men smacked Palacios while he was laughing, and he calmly walked over to his backpack from which he pulled out a small axe which he used to threaten his opponents and other fast food customers.
