Macados always has fairly good service and food. It seems dingier/like it could use an update with new booths and tables then I remember in the past but still good. Has a decent sized parking lot right outside (it's not in the historic downtown area). We have always enjoyed everything we have ordered there and found servers helpful/friendly.

The service at the bar is always great. The dining section of the restaurant is family friendly. Decent food and almost an overwhelming number of sandwiches

I like their South Western Quesadilla with side dishes. Some of their sand witches are well known to the University students. Macado's restaurant decor need some help, especially their Marilyn Monroe, she is showing age/

This is a college hang out and they did not disappoint as can so often happen when one revisits a place from the past. I had my go-to Reuben and now I know what makes it so good - the Kraut. The sandwich was perfect. The dill spear was a great match. My dear wife had their burger and was... More

We arrived at a very busy time and our waiter gave us an honest heads-up that our food could take up to an hour to arrive. It actually took more than an hour, but we had games to watch on TVs. The food was very good and portions were plentiful. Our waiter was very friendly, professional, and really seemed to... More

Title just about says it all. I feel like most of the menu items can easily be prepared at home- especially considering they seem to serve a lot of bags of Lays chips, and the fries seem to be all Oreida fries. There are a lot of meat options on the menu, not a lot of vegetarian options. The shrimp... More

This is a local chain that serves inventive good sandwiches and also a great burger. Has a sports bar feel without all the noise of some of those places. Try any of the clubs or burgers.

Visited on a Friday eve. Love the ambiance and menu. Sandwiches were very good. Service was way too slow and spotty. Only 1 person of 4 received their order correctly. I wanted more, but got less than the hype suggested.
