Something New. Something Classic. 

Romano’s Macaroni Grill was influenced by Italian cuisine, dining, and atmosphere. The first Macaroni Grill was founded by Philip J. Romano in Leon Springs, Texas on 1988. Today, Macaroni Grill has been serving their Italian-inspired dishes since then, with multiple locations throughout the United States. 

Fettuccine takes the Spotlight

The Fettuccine Chicken Alfredo is served piping hot, fresh from the kitchen. The waiter or waitress will also offer mozzarella cheese on top of the pasta, and it is up to your preference on how much cheese you want. The mozzarella cheese compliments the dish nicely, and watching it slowly melt on the hot pasta gives your eyes a sense of satisfaction. The bowl made the portions look small, but the depth of the bowl is not to be underestimated. The portion is large enough to make anyone full. The pasta was perfectly tender, and the chicken was seasoned nicely. The white alfredo sauce together with the fettuccine and chicken forms a mouthwatering taste in your mouth. It will leave you thinking, “This is what Chicken Alfredo should taste like.” The quality of the dish is great, but the $14 price can be a stretch for some. Nonetheless, it should not drive you away from ordering it because that is the usual price for Chicken Alfredo at other restaurants!

I’m so full. I just want to go to sleep in the restaurant, wake up, and eat some more.

Lonely without Rigatoni 

The Sausage and Peppers Rigatoni can be summed up in five words: bigger and tastier than expected. It came along with the $10 Three Course Meal, so a smaller portion was assumed for such a valuable price. The mint leaves added a nice touch of green on the tomato-sauce-topped pasta. The smell will leave the air around you with an tasty aroma of tomatoes and bell peppers. The rigatoni was tender, but still had a sense of firmness which went well with the sausage. The bell peppers were soft, and its flavors contributed to the overall taste of the pasta. The pasta is a little on the spicy side, so if you do not enjoy spicy food, you should order something else on their menu! However, if you love food with some heat, this dish is perfect option. The fact that the price was only $10, including a Caesar salad and a breaded mozzarella appetizer, adds to the appeal and value of this dish. The quality of the pasta exceeded the expectations of a $10 meal. 

Delightful Decor and Superior Service

The exterior of Macaroni Grill has a relaxing aura with its green bushes, benches, and outer tables for dining. The interior of the restaurant creates a sophisticated feel with its hanging light bulbs, table covers, and the nicely lit bar. The servers, waiters, and waitresses do their best to serve you with their best ability. They regularly check up on how you’re doing and if you need anything, and they make you feel glad that you decided to eat at Macaroni Grill because of their pleasing attitude. On your birthday, the restaurant will also serve you a small dessert and a server will sing “Happy Birthday” to you in operatic Italian!
