I was wondering why Coke is so much better tasting at McDonalds, am I the only one who feels this way. Why is it so much different?

Are you saying as opposed to the Coke you buy in a can from the store or Coke you buy from other fast food chains? A lot of these places still use syrup and mix it with carbonated water. McDonalds probably buys canisters of Coke directly from the factory so it's just like the stuff you get in the can.

I think that may be the reason but I'm not a hundred percent.

Peace

The way the syrup and soda water mixes; the way the ratio is set. It'll taste the same all over as McDonald's is very standardized.

If I remember correctly fountain machines are supposed to be calibrated 5:1 soda water to syrup ratio for coca-cola.
This is the standard for all machines as coke wants its product to taste the same where ever you go. These machines need to be calibrated periodically to ensure product quality. Some places that serve fountain drinks are kind of slack and rarely (even never) calibrate their machines.
McDonald's, as much as some of us dislike them, runs a tight operation. They are very good at managing their controllables and equipment. This may be why you find that Coke tastes better there. Another factor may be the ice. I prefer my drinks with ice. If I get a drink with out ice it tastes flat to me.
