Description: Our property boasts a comfort zone with a unique, casual dining experience, appropriate for all ages, but most importantly, simply delicious mac and cheese. Matildas & Mad Macs will be offering a mouthwatering selection of creamy and browned to perfection mac and cheese. The mac is on center stage, but not to be missed is the decadent hand-formed burgers, plump juicy wings and the homemade soups. Menu highlights include the pizza mac, with fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, and fresh basil… Yum! The lobster mac, with tender chunks of fresh lobster, cognac, tarragon and mascarpone cheese… Ridiculous! The portobello mac, with roasted portobello, goat cheese, mozzarella and a touch of truffle oil… Yes this really happens... The signature burger, hand formed, fire grilled, and on a baked fresh bun. Side selections include generous portions of seasoned fries paired with our white cheddar cheese sauce. Perfection…. For desserts, how about a red-velvet cake with cream cheese frosting; and for adults, may we suggest a drunken milkshake. Sorry kids 21 and older only.Togo is Unique at Matildas & Mad Macs. Ready to-go hot or cold mad-macs is the perfect way to fill your belly at your home or office. Microwavable and environmentally safe prepared dishes heat in seconds and are fun for the whole family. Don’t order pizza, order pizza mac!!! Available in regular, wheat and whole grain macaroni.Once you're properly fueled with some of our signature dishes, there's plenty of entertainment to keep the fun going, from karaoke on Mondays and Saturdays, to Texas hold'em poker on Wednesdays and trivia on Thursdays. We also provide live entertainment every Friday night! Let the fun begin…

We go to this local eatery frequently for lunch as it is close by. The food is outstanding! Best mac n'cheese imaginable. Several different combos of this delectable dish are offered - we love the buffalo mac n'cheese. Hamburgers are also excellent. The chicken salad sandwich is made with roasted red peppers and is the best I have ever tasted... More

Always wondered how Mad Matildas would be for dinner. Now I know the answer. The server was awful. She answered more times with No and disappeared quite a bit. Tell me what restaurant won't let you add Crab Fries to your dinner rather than roasted potatoes. Even charge extra but to just say NO we cannot do that. And then... More

Pulled into this place because it was first stop off highway, but will definitely come in again if I'm in the area. Personal skillets with yummy mac&cheese... We had the meatball marinara and the chil Mac. Half price Mondays made this meal fun, delicious, and super affordable!

My wife and I just had dinner at Matilda's & Mad Macs. This is a Sports Bar and restaurant and the dining room only had a few people in it because most were watching football at the bar. One of their specialties is Macaroni and cheese. They have a lot of varieties and my guess is that they all taste... More

Australian food on Delaware? Who would've thought ?! I had a good experience there . Double dated service was good no issues with that, food was delicious I got a kangaroo burger which turned out to be pretty good to my surprise. The drinks were also delicious . Would definitely go again

I consider myself an expert on wings, I eat quite a lot of them! If you are ever in Newark Delaware and have the hankering for wings stop in Matilda/mad macs and order up some with secret sauce. The staff there are awesome and you will certainly have a good time!

Quite a place with interesting clients and bartenders. I think I need to be a bit more "inked up" to fit in.

We went for lunch. The bar was pretty busy, we sat at a table. The service was slow but friendly. It appeared that only 2 girls were working, both of which were wearing "stripper" clothing. While we were looking over our menu our waitress was busy taking shots with the guys at the table next to us. The food was... More

Looked for somewhere close to hotel for a solo dinner. Found Matilda's on Yelp, which fit the bill. Live music, craft beer (try the flight of 4 short pours), and the best gourmet mac-n-cheese (I had the Chef's sampler.). Many other menu items. Lively bar that gets loud, but I didn't mind. If you want quiet, sit on the dining... More
