Do these sentences sound correct? Do they have a problem?

First sentence- “This is probably the only McDonald’s I will go to.”

“The McDonald’s on Bridge parkway is full of incompetency.”

Update:

The second sentence is the saying bridge parkway McDonald’s is full of incompetency. 

Update 2:

Can you state that McDonald’s is “full of incompetency”? Or should I say “incompetence”?

    The first can avoid ending with "to" by making it "... I will patronize." The second is acceptable. It could be improved by substituting "poor service" for "incompetency."

    First sentence: This is probably the only McDonald's I will go to. No issues, completely fine.

    The McDonald's on Bridge parkway is full of incompetency. While not strictly wrong, it sounds strage. Full of incompetence is slightly better but still sounds awkward. 

    I would say that the McDonald's on Bridge Parkway has incompetent management, is run incompetently, or has hired incompetent employees.
