Try the gyros, lip smackin' good. Or the Greek Omelet, delicious! Very casual and very, very good food.

I love the greek salad and the toasted pita bread. Laid back diner type of place with good prices and decent food when you want something quick. Decent pancakes too - they have good breakfasts.

I found the food at this place to be very average. Not bad by any means but it didn't excite me. Service was similar, OK.

I visit Mac's occasionally with a colleague who likes the place. Mac's suffers from the most consistently terrible service of anywhere in town. The food is usually a bit below average, but on our most recent trip I ordered the Spanakopita: it was disgusting. Not just bad, horrific. I don't think I found any feta at all, just a greasy...

If you want a good, simple meal with no fuss, this is the place. I have eaten here several times. The food and service are consistently good.

my last dinning experience was disappointing, higher prices and fewer desert choices. Portions were also smaller than usual. I invited a friend and felt embarrassed that I recommended it.

The menu is pretty varied, service is top notch. Great for breakfast close to the clinic. For lunch they have many Greek specialties.

Macs Diner is in the Peace Plaza near the Mayo Clinic . I walked by it for years before I stopped in with my husband recently. I'm sure glad I did. The food is good and it's an unpretentious atmosphere. One can eat outside weather permitting. The gyros are delicious. And I've had a few around the country. The wait... More

We Have always stopped here for great breakfasts when we go to he Mayo Clinic. This time we tried lunch. We had a bacon cheeseburger and a patty melt. Both were excellent. The ground beef tasted fresh and burgers were juicy. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.The location is also great right around lots of shopping.
