    The mush Mac and cheese tastes like heaven. When I order Mac and cheese, it's usually heavy, but this was light and creamy with perfect ant of truffle oil. Can't wait to go back!!!

    BEST MAC IN NYC! Pick up an order to go or dine in at one of their limited and small tables. You can also dine at Delicatessen next door and order the mac from there since they share a kitchen.

    Its a bright yellow shop selling mac and cheese in macaroni shaped dishes, what's not to like! I had the lobster mac and cheese which was very tasty. Definitely worth a look.

    A little bit pricey, but very much delicious. If you're just trying to pick up lunch, I would definitely recommend calling ahead, you'll be waiting 15-20 minutes either way.

    For those that like their childhood favorite on steroids. I recommend the chipotle chicken mac.

    Some of the best Mac & Cheese ever. The Margarita Mac is a great classic. Get a larger size than you are hungry for and take home for leftovers!

    Try the lobster Mac and the cheeseburger Mac. Ask for ketchup on the side if you need it.

    Great Mac and cheese! The food is fresh and you get A LOT of it! I got the small and couldn't finish it alone.

    I was the only one here and my margarita mac & cheese took around 10-15 minutes. Worth the wait though. It was delicious and I can't wait to try some of the others!

    I don't know why I ordered the hamburger mac & cheese. The poor kid in me must've taken over. It was good although I heard the lobster mac is to die for.

    The ultimate niche, Macbar focuses on the ultimate comfort food: mac 'n' cheese. Try the Mayan chipotle version which includes spicy chicken, Chihuahua cheese and green onions. Delish!

    You cannot go wrong with MacBar and any of their awesome delicious Macaroni and Cheese. Go with the classic or try something new like the Mayan Chipotle!

    Good food takes time... A lot of time. Waited 40 minutes for 2 orders of Mac and cheese that they said were premade (when my bf asked for extra lobster in his lobster Mac). It was pretty empty too.

    Whoever invented this is a genius. Basically a small mac and cheese bar in the heart of SoHo, best mac and cheese for $6 only

    Best Mac in the city, no matter which one you get. Def try 4 cheese and lobster fir best value. Also best to-go containers!

    Small place so if you've gotta go potty go next door. Cool thing is that next door is the always trendy Delicatessen

    a bit pricey for a lunch spot but otherwise, really high quality Mac & Cheese. Chicken Diablo one had this half inch layer of melted cheese on top. Could have used some more chicken in there though.

    Love, Love, Love this place ! The to-go containers are must have. Even the classic Mac & Cheese is amazing! Great place.

    You want to get the Mayan Chipotle Chicken Mac & Cheese. And you want a medium for a filling meal, a small if you're not very hungry, or a large, for 2 people looking to keep portions small.

    Mac Quack is where it's at. Call and order ahead for lunch though, the wait here rivals the DMV

    Primavera mac & cheese was rocking good. Pricy though, ~$10 if you want to get filled up for lunch (get the medium!). (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    anything on the menu, mac & cheese does not go wring at this place, try the burger!

    I would come back again but I would not eat the cheeseburger Mac, I didn't care for it. I liked the stroganoff Mac best.

    The Primavara is delicious!!!!! And if you get a medium or large you get a cute noodle jar to take home.

    Not a lot of seating -- best to take it to go. Tons of options to choose from.

    60 Thompson concierge Paul recommends this for any fan of Mac ‘n Cheese. Go for the Mac Lobsta- Mac 'n Cheese with lobster.

    Macbar > s'Mac - honestly there is no comparison, the ingredients used here are far superior. The mac quack with duck confit is out of this world.

    For every item on the menu, the small is less expensive per ounce than the large. Odd pricing, but tasty mac and cheese.

    Margarita mac is surprisingly awesome with just a little bit of spiciness. Better than the mac lobsta imho.

    Mac Stroganoff (braised beef, stewed mushrooms and sour cream)? Yes, please!

    The cheese burger mac isn't worth the money.... It's just regular mac with a tiny bit of ground beef in it... However, the mayan mac is out of this world!

    Waited an insanely long time for my lobster mac & cheese (30+ mins). Is that normal? But it was so mouthwatering good.

    All the flavor is in the top crust- they need to add more flavor to the sauce
