High quality mac n cheese!! The gluten free was great and I was able to order without breadcrumbs. Price was good and you could tell the cheese was high quality

We had a party of six with us and we’re able to sit at a nice family sized table. Food is ordered at kiosks and then just pick a table. I’m addition to Mac and cheese they had some good cocktails as well. There are...a lot of options and all sounded great. One in our party got the sampler to try a bunch. The “nosh” size, which I think is their smallest option, is more than enough for a meal. They have gluten free options and was told it was the best gluten free Mac and cheese they have found. The waiters and cooks were so friendly. We didn’t realize but they had brought one of us the wrong order and they must have realized themselves and brought out a correct one. We would have been perfectly fine with eating what we had but it was so nice. Lots of fun and worth visiting!More

Great casual dining. Small place with big portions and even bigger value! The “nosh” portion was ideal for lunch.

The mac and cheese was fresh, forgot to take pictures of the margaritas but lord knows I enjoyed it. Deff reccomend everyone to create their own mac and cheese if they are cheese fanatics as well.

This was a repeat visit as we had previously really enjoyed the mac & cheese here when last in New York almost 5 years ago. Wish we hadn’t bothered wasting our time!! We made a special journey to get to Smac, only to be greeted...with an unfriendly “we’re closed now!” at 8:30pm, despite the website saying they were open until 11pm and at least 3 neon signs around the perimeter all vividly stating “open”. He was just as rude to other people who also walked in hoping to order. We asked if we could order food to go - the man working there said yes so we did so using a self-service machine. As soon as I had tapped my card to make payment, he came over saying we couldn’t order anything. We disputed this following what he had previously agreed. The server then proceeded to explain they were closing early due to Monkey Pox, which evidently none of the other customers had been told about! He wouldn’t honour the food order we had placed saying the kitchen was closed (by then we didn’t even want this in case it was contaminated in some way!) However he also wouldn’t refund our money, almost $20 worth. He insisted they had cashed up so no notes available and for some bizarre reason, couldn’t authorise a refund onto my card as the manager wasn’t there. His ludicrous suggestion was for us to either phone the manager or go back to the store 2 days later - we explained at length and with growing frustration why neither of those options were feasible (our UK phones wouldn’t allow us to make calls in the US without extortionate charges and returning to store would be MORE wasted time plus there was no proof we were entitled to our money back. We asked for an email address - a catering one was provided which was useless and the man admitted he wasn’t sure I would get a refund if I contacted them. This charade continued for around 15 minutes - we weren’t leaving until there had been a resolution with my refund. Finally, the man went to check with another colleague out back and then returned with a $20 bill! He then tried to give us someone else’s food order for free to make up for the stress and frustration!! Obviously we declined and emphasised we just wanted the refund we were entitled to. This experience was utterly abysmal and: ruined our evening, wasted our time, caused considerable and unnecessary stress, delayed our journey back to the hotel, ruined one of our favourite New York food memories and potentially exposed us to germs! DO NOT GIVE THIS PLACE YOUR CUSTOM.More

It was good but not Delicious or creamy as you expected to be as a Mac n cheese place. Indoor/outdoor seating , vegan friendly, staff is fast and friendly. They also have a fridge to donate (that’s cool) , so I reserve a table to...have a lunch date with my son, teach him to donate stuff and we walked to the AMC that is really near after to watch a movie.More

Traveled to NY with 2 teen boys over break and who doesn’t love mac and cheese so when I found this place online we had to check it out. So glad I did. Upon walking in we were greeted by a nice man (owner?) that...was welcoming and happy to go over anything. We ordered at the kiosk and decided to sit outside in one of the covered areas since it was so nice out. They have seating inside, as well as, on the street out front or in sectioned covered areas along the side. There was so much food and it was all delicious! I got a GF Mediterranean, my son got the Buffalo chicken and his friend the regular one with breadcrumbs. Keep in mind that it is Mac and cheese. This is not upscale with a lot of options but if you are looking for great food with friendly staff I can not recommend this place enough! We will definitely be back.More

Fancied mac n cheese while we were in New York so literally googled it and came across this place. So glad we made the trip as the sheer choice in what you can have in mac n cheese is incredible. Did not think there could...be so many different variations! Do be careful on what size you order though...went a bit too big and had so much left over! The cheese defeated me for sure. Highly recommend this place!More

Had to try this place after reading the reviews, I've never had so many choices of Mac'N'Cheese in the past. The staff very helpful with explaining all the choices as you do your order on a screen. Both dishes tasted great, portion size very good...even though the wife wished she had the kids size portion. Will go back next time in New York & bonus the City SightSeeing bus stops 2 min walk over roadMore

My son and his girlfriend were eating at this restaurant in November and they have a little problem with the computers and as a result of that they did have a duplicated charge in their credit card. They claimed the amount trough their bank company...but didn't received the correct and quick response from them. We contacted directly the restaurant and the were very kind and professional in helping us solving the problem as it was resolved by Sarita very efficiently. so many thanks to Sarita for that. She took the responsibility of checking and refunded the duplicated charge. BTW My son told me that the food was excelent as well.More

This was worth the $20 taxi ride! I only had the nosh size, but it was more than enough for one person and was quite possibly the best mac and cheese I've ever had (and if you knew me you would know that is saying...a lot)! Only other place I could compare this to is Mac Shop all the way in Wisconsin which is known for cheese ha so if you can match that in NYC you're doing pretty good. I only had the classic because I'm a plain gal, but there seemed to be a lof of different varieties to try. If I had one of these places near me, I'd be in big trouble. Overall, it's definitly worth the visit if you're a fan of Mac & Cheese.More

Worth the few blocks to eat at this little place. Cast iron skillets of different sizes full of hearty mac n'Cheese recipes of all sorts! Didn't care for the kiosk order system. But comfort food at its best! And seems to be a local favorite!
