The Mac Grill in Plaza de las Americas

Sometimes when we go to shop at Plaza, we eat at this Mac Grill. We love many of the pasta dishes and often have the special. This restaurant is quite big but still gets filled up often at noon. You may have to wait a few minutes but it is worth it. The atmosphere is lively with many couples... read more

We've been visiting this restaurant for years, and usually asked for Italian. But this time I ordered the eggplant parmigiana (was very good) and my wife ordered the skirt steak (medium term), and she was amazed!!! The meat was at the perfect term and so tender, that we had to tell the waitress about our experience. Later, the chef came... More

Service was good, a bit slow on bringing the food. We just wasn't feeling it. We didn't even had desert. Its like we just wanted to finish and leave. Had better experience in the past. Will most likely choose somewhere else before returning.

I have been to the Macaroni Grill many times. The food is fine with a different touch. The salmon is excellent, as it comes juicy rather than dry. The lasagna is done a bit different yet has a really nice strong taste (some people may find it spicy). And the salads, when selected as the main plate, are huge. Service,... More

This is not fast food; this is NO food. This is not good service; it's NO service. Plan on spending a long time here, between waiting for a table and getting our food, it's been 2 hours. No joke! And when your food gets here, it's either all wrong or they took your plate to another table (just happened right... More

This time, I visited Macaroni Grill at San Patricio Plaza. My son and I went there for a quick dinner, after a long day working at the Mall. The place was packed, and we elected to sit at the bar. We made the best decision. The service at the bar was great and she served us well. We both ordered... More

After a long day working at Plaza, we went for a late quick dinner. The place was full, but the wait time was OK. For appetizer we ordered the fried calamari and these were fresh and crispy. For entrée, I had the Chicken Capresse, and it was tasty. Service was good, although a bit slow, probably for the amount of... More
