the mac and cheese is ok, not homemade like, rather processed, but good. the packaging is absurd. they put it in a plastic thing that is probably equal to about 500 plastic bags, and is so wasteful that it makes you feel bad.... and i am not even an environmentalist

Love it was great! I took my kids and husband. We all had a chance to enjoy mac & Cheese and all the different types they have come up with. Love the Margarita & Mayan! Great menu choices for everyone. Place is a bit small but you can always do take out.

Mac and cheese is one of my comfort foods so my friends and I went to try out MacBar after I saw on a tv program. This place is tiny. Has a banquette with about four small tables for seating. Looks to be more set up for take out service. My friends both ordered a medium size cheeseburger mac which came in the cute yellow mac shaped container and I ordered a small of both the mac lobsta and the mayan chipotle. One friend thought her cheesburger m&c was good while the other thought hers was just okay although she did say her leftover tasted better the next day. I liked my lobsta m&c but really liked my mayan chipotle m&c and so did my friends who kept taking a bit for themselves as well. Mayan chicken had really nice flavor and a bit of heat which I love. I definetly will return to try out their other flavors.

I NEVER leave reviews, but I have to for this place! A lot of previous reviews attacked the packaging. Umm last time I checked plastic IS recyclable. And there are many different fun things you could upcycle the macaroni packaging to.. Please don't change the packaging, macbar! These idiots just have no imagination or creative skills or knowledge of current recycling practices. Oh and the mac and cheese is fantastic! Way more than I expected in the order for the price. The macshroom was good and the cheeseburger mac was amazing! Great food, great price, great service and clever packaging! My 3 year old has requisitioned the plastic macaroni for her crayons already and I think I'll felt around mine and use it for office supplies on my desk. Furry macaroni container. Very cool, Thanks Macbar!

The food here is standard mac, a litle pricey but gets the job done. If you want varietys of mac and cheese look no further. I haven't eaten here in a few months but I've got to agree with my fello posters. wtf is with the packaging macbar? who do you think you are tacking on an extra 50% onto food prices for fancy, ridiculuos presentation (packaging)? Until you figure it out, me and my fellow diners boycott. Hope you fix it soon, cuz were real hungry for mac and cheese.

We were so excited to order from a place that specializes in Mac and Cheese and instead we were extremely disappointed. This place got such great reviews but when we tasted the macaroni and cheese it tasted like processed and imitation cheese and the texture was very doughy and glue like. There was very little hint of cheese flavor at all and it was dry. This restaurant is not ashamed of specializing in something but failing to deliver. Also we ordered a peanut butter cookie and it was dry and tasteless. Save your money, skip this place.

I enjoyed my meal, it's a little on the expensive side. But the packaging has got to be some of the most environmentally irresponsible I've seen in NYC. Huge over-designed plastic containers, special plastic bags, etc. I like the food but I doubt my conscience will let me order from here again.
