McDonald's is a 29,135-square-foot (2,706.7 m2) restaurant that spans the Will Rogers Turnpike section of Interstate 44 (I-44) near Vinita, Oklahoma. It is a notable example of a U.S. roadside restaurant. However, the biggest temporary McDonald's in the world was opened during 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which had 32,000 sq ft (3,000 m2).

It shares the space with a Phillips 66 gas station.

The building and service plaza closed on June 4, 2013, for a $14.6 million renovation. At its grand reopening on December 22, 2014, it was renamed from "Glass House Restaurant" to "Will Rogers Archway".

At the front of the west anchor stands a statue of Will Rogers. The restaurant contains a small Will Rogers museum.
