Fun old time place for milkshakes, rootbeer floats & baskets. Our group had shrimp, cheeseburger & philly cheesesteak. Shrimp was great, fried were ok at best. Great shakes & floats.

A friend of mine used to work at "Mac's" during her high school days in the 1960s, and I remembered that when we stopped there for lunch. They must do something right! Part of the popularity is probably caused by the low prices. That is...More

The drive in is a great step into the past but honestly the place doesn’t produce anything of quality. The burgers taste frozen, the bread old and cheap, the fries from frozen and lifeless with no crunch or flavor, the pizza is bland and dough...More
