Magic Time Machine - WHY??

I was dragged to this place last night by a client. The place was packed. WHY?? The food is almost unedible. And don't tell me its the atmostphere. Cuz that is gross too. I just really don't get it...

      Never eaten at the place,though I had heard in the past the food wasn't that great.I think there is another one besides the one in San Antonio,but not sure where,or maybe I'm wrong.

    2. Good Lord, is that place still open? We used to go there before Homecoming and Prom and all back when I was in high school (25 years ago). I don't remember the food being all that good back then, so I can only imagine what it's like now. I remember the food being somewhat like Friday's (Friday's was actually pretty decent back then) but with higher prices.

      Sorry for your suffering!

      1. MTM was ok for the kids... But food was bad, menu extremely limited and the place is just kitsch to say the least.

        1. I'm going to defect. I think it's a wonderful place. I liked it as a teen and like it now as well. It's the kind of place that is what you make of it. I always have a blast with our servers. The food? certainly not great, but at least better than your average sit down chain and no pricier. From that perspective, if you go in with a fun attitude, it's great for groups who want to have fun and get a meal they feel more comfortable with.

          1. I loved the Magic Time Machine when I was a kid - I had a few birthday parties there and thought it was the coolest restaurant ever. BUT - I can't imagine going there as an adult (unless I was taking my future children)!
