Mad Mac's opens in Lakewood with live music, drinks and mac and cheese

Looking for beer, bites and live music? A new Lakewood bar and eatery has you covered. Called Mad Mac's, it is located at 13601 Detroit Ave. in the former O'Toole's Pub space. 

On the menu, look for a long list of macaroni and cheese creations like the Chicken Bacon Ranch with fried chicken and mozzarella; Italian Three Cheese with penne noodles, tomatoes and breadcrumbs; Spicy Chorizo with Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar, fried onions and hot sauce; and the Cheeseburger, with elbow macaroni, brown sugar ground beef, onions and paprika. And don't forget to sample the fried pickles. Burgers, nachos and other bar fare are also on offer.

Pair your meal with beer, wine, cocktails or one of the adult milkshakes like the Thin Mint (Pinnacle Chocolate Whipped Vodka, green crème de menthe and ice cream).

Stop in for live music Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Check Mad Mac's website to see what bands will be taking the stage.

With a 4.5-star rating out of nine reviews on Yelp so far, the new addition is on its way to developing a local fan base.
