My boyfriend and I told our server that he was celiac and couldn’t have gluten. She assured us that they would take the necessary precautions. A few hours later he was very sick. This is NOT SAFE for celiacs

Phenomenal!!!! I am Celiac, lactose and soy allergic. Wonderful ordering allergy friendly food that was DELICIOUS and satiating. Vanessa was so informative about all the allergies and what was on the menu. If there were 10 stars I’d give 10. Definitely on my top favorite GF, DF, & Soy free food. They are also nut free and egg free.

Went there for lunch last week. Considering not only do I have to stay away from gluten, but some other things including high fructose corn syrup, I had a few questions to ask, as I was unsure about what some of the sauces contain. The guy that helped us was very helpful - even going out back to see if there was anything offending for me in the pizza sauce for the Pizza Mac! (Which I ended up getting.) I was assured no HFCS was in the Pizza Sauce, along with the Scampi sauce from what I was told. They have two kinds of GF pasta, one made from rice and the other made from chickpeas (chickpeas give me a reaction so I can't have it). They even had GF breadcrumbs to put on top! When the food came out it was in a single serving baking pan, and the taste was great! I recommend coming to this chain of restaurant.

Always perfectly executed and delicious! Difficult to replicate the taste and texture of these meals; seriously, Mr. Macs will blow your grandmother’s “special recipe” away(keep that quiet). Many options for different tastes. Barilla rice pasta can be substituted for any menu item at no extra charge, or Banza chickpea pasta with a surcharge. Rated Best in New Hampshire by NH Magazine reader’s poll, and highly reviewed by the Phantom Gourmet. Definitely worth a detour if you’re near by, and definitely a must-stop if you’re in the neighborhood. (I love having Amazon returns as the UPS store is next door)

So I've been to this location and the one is portsmouth about a dozen times. I use a Nima sensor and I always test my food from restaurants for gluten. The Manchester location has only ever tested positive for gluten once which was the last time I went there, about a week ago. The portsmouth location has never tested positive for gluten. The food is very heavy and as someone with IBD as well as celiac, it's rough on the stomach, but usually gluten free.

We ate here twice with my family while visiting and it is completely safe! They use flags indicating allergy, the staff can tell you which macaroni dishes are GF and we really enjoyed it! My favorite was the taco mac and cheese and my daughter ordered the jalapeño mac and cheese and that was delicious! Also, my husband and others loved the chicken, bacon, ranch. Those were the favorites. Please order the small. It is huge!

Oh this is good. Like so good. Dangerously good. I just gobbled up the Blazin' Buffalo and am bringing home a "home bake" order for the family tonight. They prep it and the customer takes it home and heats it up. And they're opening one in Portsmouth in December 2016! Great customer service, too. So nice. Also reassuring that they put a little wooden gf tag in your order—otherwise I'd be doubting that something this good could be gf.

Since my son was diagnosed with a gluten allergy - I had braced that he would not likely able to walk into a restaurant and order his beloved, Mac and Cheese - let alone it be "artisan" and delicious. This place is a GF comfort food paradise.

Eight yr old review: "I would give it more stars if I could. This place is awesome" GF dad: "GF Heaven" Non GF family: couldn't choose so we all sampled and it was delicious.

Also we were traveling past on a road trip and wanted something fast - from ordering to on our table 5-10min.

Wait staff very knowledgable and GF educated.

GF'ers even got a GF brownie to go and it was soft and awesome.

I had the plain Mac and cheese and it was outstanding! The staff was very knowledgable and made sure the kitchen knew it was gluten free because of celiac so they would be very cautious. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food doesn't disappoint. I know people say it's expensive, but I didn't really think so given how much food you get.

I took my wife here (about an 1.5 hour trip) for dinner on her birthday since her favorite dish in world is Mac and Cheese. I hate Mac and Cheese but found I could have American Chop Suey as a non cheesy entree. My dish (a goulash of elbows, meat, andspicy tomato based sauce) was better than any goulash I've had! My wife was sure it was the best Mac and cheese she has had (she got the bacon cheeseburger Mac and cheese) because the cheddar they use is so good and the flavor complexities are definitely worth the price. I also love that since it stays in its cast iron skillet the meal stayed warm the entire time! This may end up being a birthday tradition but it is very pricey. As a once in awhile event you can go there confident you can get a great dish with minimal gluten contact and contamination

A little pricy for pasta but we are used to paying more for GF and it's not like we have an option. We've tried 4 different dishes and liked them all. The 1st visit they did put cheese-its on top so they had to make another one but they have not made that mistake again.

It was good but expensive for what you are getting. They charge 3 dollars more for gluten free for the large which isn't bad but the original price for just a basic mac without even meat is a little nuts. Ended up paying 25 dollars for just mac and cheese. It's good but not the absolute best in the world as the reviews on their Facebook page say. I can't say I'll be eating there again but if you are looking for a night out then go for it. It is decent but pricey.

Every time I see lobster mac and cheese on a menu, I am a little sad because I know it won't be an option for me. When I saw it on the menu at Mr. Mac's I knew right away what I was going to order. Given the quick service atmosphere, I wasn't expecting to see much lobster in the dish, but when the piping hot skillet was placed in front of me I could immediately see I had guess wrong. Every bit had a hunk of lobster in it, and after eating my fill of the small version of this dish, I needed a box for the left driver. It was too much to eat in one sitting and to good to waste a bit.

We've tried multiple restaurants that we've located via this app. This time, I am taking the time to post. Mr. Mac's was sooo good and very GF friendly. The staff was young but very knowledgable about GF (asking celiac, allergy, or preference?) and offered suggestions about their best sellers. I sure wish this was a chain!

Fantastic family friendly dining. Small dining room, but no one seemed to not get a table after they ordered. Completely customizable menu for gluten free pasta. Also have hard cider on tap which was an unexpected bonus. Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable! Would give it 6 stars if I could. And super bonus were the French meadow brownies for dessert!

Wow! This is as good if not better than S'mac in NYC. My GF chicken bacon ranch was creamy and full of bacon and chicken. My hubby said his regular pulled pork was delicious too (a little bit of heat but not bad). Will definitely recommend to our family in NH and will stop by our next visit.

We ordered the GF Cheese Please and GF Cheeseburger Mac along with a Garden Salad. They brought out the Cheese Please with Chez-it's on top so we had to ask for a new plate. They made up a new plate and offered us a GF dessert as a consolation. Everything was delicious! We'll definitely be going back.

This was Fantastic! We are on vacation and traveling through Vermont and New Hampshire to arrive in Maine. Using this app, I found this place and drove 60 miles round trip out of the way. It was worth it! We even got an order to go. I had the Chicken Bacon Ranch; my daughter ordered the Classic, and my husband had the The Big Easy, which he enjoyed due to the spiciness. We all ate GF even though husband doesn't have to. Delicious! Thank you for this option. It's been years!

If you're IBS-prone, be aware that they use a LOT of cheese, oil, and butter. Tasty food, yes, but brace for the consequences. For me, it's not worth it anymore, but you might tolerate it better, so give it a try. Just be careful selecting your ingredients.

I have eaten here probably around 10 times. Up until the last two I had no issues and the food was very good. The last time I went I noticed some noodles that looked different in my dish, I felt a little sick after so I threw the leftovers away. I was hoping this was a one time issue but I went today and after eating there I had a horrible reaction. I will not be going back. One issue was a mistake but twice moves this to the do not go list.
