We were staying near the airport and looking for someplace to eat that didn’t require refinancing the house. Husband found this place on line and we gave it a try. Boom, ate there every day we were in town Great service, great plain old fashioned diner food. Like the website says ‘ they don’t make it like this anymore” which is true. You have so many chains out there where all the food is the Same, you don’t get to know anyone your just a number. This place within the second day everyone was like “your back! Great” and we chatted up a storm. When you have places like Mac’s that is family run you get the personal touch. In this day an age when everyone is looking down at their devices and getting curbside service with no interaction with each other anymore this place is the opposite. Thanks for great service and meals guys. We will be back.

Had a 4 hour O’Hare layover, so I decided to get out of there and find a good breakfast. Found this a block off the Cumberland stop on the Blue Line. Food was outstanding, served very quickly and from a very friendly staff. Love the place!

Really good lunch. Good burger, fries and soup. Small place, but servers move so you don't have to wait long. Limited hours, only breakfast & lunch. Cash only. Atm right by the door if you didn't bring cash.

Been going to Mac's for well over a decade. Nothing fancy as it is a diner through and through. Fun as it feels like you are really stepping back in time. It is not "made up" to look like a diner, its really the real thing. Food is standard diner fair and I have never been disappointed, but don't be looking for gourmet anything! If looking for a good solid breakfast or lunch, with no frills and no pretentiousness, this is your place!

When you go to a diner to eat, you can't expect it to be anything else. Walking into Mac's is like a time warp in the 60's, including classic 60's music being piped into the restaurant. Cushy vinyl seats line the counter along with booths along the left hand side. The place is well staffed, so you will get the attention you need.

We had a delightful server from Bulgaria and she was full of personality and care. She suggested the Beef Tips & Noodles and it did not disappoint. The Angus tips were freshly braised and hot over very tender egg noodles.

Note that this is a "Cash Only" establishment, so make sure you bring enough to enjoy a high-variety menu!
