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.

I'm not sure where to start... My sister's family eats here every time they are in Dallas, every couple of months. We were in town and decided to take the kids. Upon entering, I was immediately accosted by the smell of smoke and cigarettes and wondered if smoking was allowed. It's not, just leftover from when it was apparently years... More

Server was great, food was just good, server nacho libre was awesome. You pay for the experience and we got to sit in the bus. My only gripe this place hasn't been updated for at least 30 years it needs a decor update, new costumes and menu update quick. I am starting to believe owners are STINGY and not putting... More

We took a group of 25 to this restaurant. When I made the reservation the manager said we would be in the party room. When we arrived this was not the case. Despite the mix up the wait staff worked hard to ensure everyone had a good time. Our waiter Mario was very funny and kept us laughing. His partner... More

The atmosphere is amazing. If I had small children it would be a monthly stop. The restaurant is a step into a fantasy land. All the servers dress in different characters. The food is okay. The salad car - yes car not bar was average, but it was a long walk to get there. You could ask to be close.... More

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

I don't even know where to begin. Like a many the Magic Time Machine held a nostalgic place in my mind. I booked my sons birthday arrived early and was treated horribly. The restaurant smelled like stale cigarettes and beer from years past. The furniture so grimy and disgusting that there was no way I was going to sit. How... More

This is a fun dinner if you have fairly young children. Expect good food. The staff was dressed as all kinds of characters from the past. They were engaging. My kids had a great time. Be aware that you may spend a lot on tips for table side entertainment like balloon making, funny pictures and magic.
