Magic Time Machine restaurant is a wonderful place to go and eat. Very unique inside with themed eating booths and tables. A truly memorable experience. The staff is dressed in costumes. Good food and fun for the whole family.

Food is nothing special and quality id not above the regular fast food. The real deal here is the kid theme tables and personnel. Excellent for the kids birth
