Mind you, I am vegan. I also have cholesterol issues, and do not do the bechamel or the cheese. Ok, so the food is very good, however....I also only have 30 min. for lunch, so when they mess up the order, I do not have...time to order a new one and go pick it up again. Unfortunately, you HAVE to choose some type of cheese, as it is a requirement (for some reason). The first time I ordered, it had chicken in it, and I did not order it with chicken or cheese (as stated on my online order with Door Dash). The 2nd go-around, I ordered it directly through Mr. Mac's website, with "No bechamel & no cheese at all", but I had to choose a cheese, so I chose parmesan. I also ordered it with mixed colored peppers, and did not get that. I called and they said they would credit the card, which is fine, but then I'm left with no lunch and no time to get anything else, at that point. He told me even though cheese is required, I need to state no cheese (which I told him I did). The food is good, but if you are vegan and trying to watch your health, it is not good to find chicken or cheese in your meal, if you stated clearly you did not want it. The kitchen or whomever needs to pay more attention to the ingredients. It's rough to be disappointed twice, even though the food is good when correct.More

You can't miss this place located on Route 1 past Water Country on the right before The Beach Plum. We went here on a Saturday night, before going to the Cinemagic Stadium 10 movie theatre. I ordered the Garden Veggie Mac without onions, and Mike...ordered the Classic All American. I was tired from being up late pounding sugar-free Red Bull's at last night's bonfire then driving an hour to Hampton to watch the sunrise at the wall and catch folks in Rye having a 6 am board meeting though the water was too cold for the gear I had to go in. So fast forward to 5:30 pm, without a nap, and while the counter person is reading the add on options to my boyfriend, "Bacon, Pepperoni, Hot Dog Slices, Chicken, Ground Beef, Sausage, Roast Pork, Snake, or Shrimp." I said, "Snake?" She said, "Yes, Snake." I stared at her as if she was Medusa and said again, "Snake???" Now my boyfriend turned and said, "Yes, boo, what's wrong?" I walked away horrified. I don't like snakes I'm terrified of reptiles, but what kind of place has 'snake'? As an add on? We sat at a booth and waited for our meal. I found a table tent advertising the steak Mac and cheese and realized I had misheard the counter person. "Did she say snake? Or Steak?" My boyfriend started laughing. "You thought she said snake? She was saying steak!" We both laughed. "Would you like some snake Mac and cheese?" More laughter as our meals arrived. The Garden Mac and cheese was surprisingly good for a fast food restaurant. I am a wicked picky eater, and I tend to prefer hummus and veggie wraps, but this was good. The All American Mac and cheese must have been amazing because Mike devoured it before I was halfway through my meal. The interior is clean, an airy, and nicely lit. For a fast food place, this is a must try. And no they don't serve snake, but they do serve steak as an optional add on to your Mac and cheese.More

I've been wanting to try Mr. Macs for a few years now but haven't found the time until tonight. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my standards. I would say the best part of this establishment is the quick online ordering and the friendly...service at the take-out window. I ordered a small create your own mac and cheese dish. I added swiss and mozzarella for my cheeses, buffalo for a sauce, and broccoli. The first thing I noticed was that the cheese on top of the pasta was rock hard and had to be cut with a knife. I think this could be corrected by dining in rather than getting take-out. It may have been sitting a bit too long causing it to get that texture. But unfortunately that wasn't the only problem. The taste was extremely bland and there was only about five-six pieces of broccoli. I want to like this restaurant so if I do return I would dine in and stick to one of their signature dishes.More

Went in around lunchtime and the place was empty on a Saturday which Is probably the first sign that something isn’t right. The place was clean and the staff was very nice so we decided to order. Was a bit in shock over the prices...for their mac and cheese dishes but decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Food came out very fast but really wasn’t that good, we had the bacon cheddar and Philly cheesesteak Mac, very underwhelming food quality for what they charge. Maybe would give it one more chance just because the staff was friendly, maybe dinner time would be a better time to go.More
