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!

Stopped here for our 1st time. The mac n cheese options are endless. I had the buffalo mac n cheese and it was the best I've ever had. There are 3 sizes...Nosh (small), Major Much (med) and Mongo (Lg) and Partay (huge!) They have a...sampler too. You have to order for yourself on a kiosk at the front counter. Always seems busy but we were lucky enough to find seats. Gluten free options!!!More

S’Mac was around the corner from our air b’n’b.... needed dinner and thought it smelt nice in there.... WOW, we designed our own and got it take away... absolutely banging, delicious mac n cheese. Seasoned perfectly, didn’t need anything extra! Great find! And not too...pricey either, for the cost in NYC, we got a (slightly too big for 2 people) macncheese for $20, bargain, delicious, filling dinner!!More

Unbelievably good mac and cheese. I only went here reluctantly with friends, as I can usually take or leave mac and cheese. But this was the tastiest meal I had in New York on this entire trip. I had the Alpine and it was ridiculously...awesome. My friends had other dishes and everyone loved their choice. I'm returning to NYC in a couple of weeks and will definitely be coming back here for another meal. Prices aren't too cheap but perfectly OK, considering it's NYC.More

My daughter is a mac and cheese lover. We decided to stop there for lunch on our NYC trip. Really good! We decided to try the sampler and share it. On a hit day, we ate 3 on it and that was fine. Probably would...have eaten more if less hot outside.More
