The mac-and-cheese emphasis on this visit (years later than our first) worked better, and we really appreciated the gluten free macaroni. A salad was fresh and fine. Two plates of M&C (one gluten free) were hot and decent. Service was okay. I suspect that the...More

Great place to watch the Philadelphia Eagles or other sports team on a Sunday. Friendly atmosphere with casual football fare.

Came here with the family to try something new. The portions are pretty big, and the menu has other options besides mac and cheese, but you don't come here for burgers and wings. I ordered the sampler to try a little of everything. It was...More

This place had just about every Mac n cheese combination imaginable. There were other menu items but the Mac was the star of the show. Everything from lobster or spicy crab and shrimp to Popeyes Mac ( spinach, artichoke and red pepper) to buffalo chicken...More

First the bartenders were first class and spot on. Helpful and informative. This is what the $15.00 Buffalo chicken mac & cheese looked like. One chicken tender no blue cheese crumbles. Next time I will eat the crap at Applebee's before I would ever come...More

The kind of menu that just one visit can't do it justice. Great appetizers, fantastic burgers, and I can't quite decide on a good enough superlative for the Mac and cheese dishes. If you're anywhere close, stop in. Oh, be sure to check out the...More

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…
