We've been to Macaroni Grill many times and have found their menu to be mostly good but with some weak spots. The Make Your Own Pasta usually works out very well; you get a checklist to fill out which is fun. The service can be annoying with waiters who try to be your best friend rather than just offering efficient and courteous service. We always have fun turning our paper table cover into a work of disposable art with the crayons they offer.
I HIGHLY recommend the chocolate cake with fudge sauce for dessert. One order is easily enough for two people or even three. Their cheesecake is also good.
