Mac's still has the goods. The small special offering is perfect for lunch or dinner. You can't beat the quality and value you get with your meal. No frills but great people and always good conversations at the counter.

Stopped at Mac's diner the other night. My wife had the mix seafood platter, I had the chick and we split a salad. The food was excellent and the price was unbeatable.

My family of six had a wonderful Italian dinner at Mac's. We've been coming at this restaurant for years and the quality doesn't change. Service is good, food is good and you can bring your own liquor. Bring cash.

My son and I were in town for a college visit. We had just endured a 4hr+ delayed flight and an strenuous drive from Boston during rush hour traffic. All we wanted to do was eat and go to bed. Worcester seemed a bit run-down...More
