Without cheese, loose macaroni noodles are relegated to the artistic whims of celebrity toddlers or the back-up pipe-fitting for their Lego mansions. Place mac on a pedestal with its rightful sidekick thanks to today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at mad-macs, on South College Avenue.

Serving up a wide spread of mac 'n' cheese platters, mad-macs' mac menu focuses on pairing America's favorite noodle with imaginative ingredients. Dive for marine cuisine such as the lobster mac, stuffed with fresh lobster, cognac, tarragon, and mascarpone ($10.99–$16.99), or gift the pizza mac, with mozzarella, basil, roasted tomatoes, and garlic ($4.99–$8.99), to the pizza-delivery man who has everything. Other options include the buffalo-chicken mac ($7.99–$11.99), and the portobello mac ($8.99–$12.99).

Additional menus furnish the noodle-averse with a wide array of burgers, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. Sated patrons can sink into the overstuffed bench seats and take in the doodle-covered chalkboard walls as they sip one of mad-macs' adults-only milkshakes.


Three Yelpers give mad-macs a perfect average of five stars, and 75% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • The property boasts a comfort zone with a unique, casual dining experience, appropriate for all ages, but most importantly, simply delicious mac and cheese. – Ryan S., Yelp, 12/4/10
  • The restaurant itself was so nice and it had a real comfortable, friendly environment. – Victoria Romanok, Urbanspoon


Within local favorite Matilda's Pub lies mad-macs, a comfort fare haven dedicated to the chefs' gooey mastery of mac 'n' cheese with a family-friendly vibe. Among rich espresso wood fixtures, overstuffed bench seats, and chalkboard walls covered in doodles, mac masters dish out decadent lobster mac with mascarpone cheese, philly cheesesteak mac, and Cajun shrimp and crab mac, among their many rich combinations. Around the eatery, abstract macaroni art tempts hungry eyes while kids are given supplies to craft their own masterpieces or a new set of edible parents before they go up on a special display wall. Behind the bar, bartenders mix adults-only milk shakes, and in the kitchen the chefs plate their culinary works of art as customers order fresh hand-formed burgers, Aussie-style crab cakes, and steaks.
