Hawaii Mom Blog: Mac 24/7 Bar and Restaurant

Mac 24/7 Bar and Restaurant

When Mac 24/7 first opened in Hawaii, the talk was all about the Pancake Challenge. Here's the challenge: Eat 3, 14″ pancakes topped with either blueberries, walnuts and chocolate chunks; pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts; or cinnamon streusel w/ vanilla glaze in 90 minutes or less. Winners get the pancakes for free, a t-shirt, and a photo on the Wall of Fame in the restaurant and on their website.

Adam Richman of Man vs. Food put Mac 24/7 on the map when he came to Hawaii and took the Pancake Challenge (watch it here). He didn't complete the challenge successfully, forty two other brave souls have, and their names and pictures can be found in the Mac 24/7 "Hall of Fame" on Mac 24/7's website. I spotted world famous competitive eater Joey Chestnut on the Hall of Fame. He currently holds the fastest time of 15 minutes. The fastest woman on the list is "Jane Dough" (sounds like she didn't want to give her real name) at 24 minutes.

Rest assured, you don't have to take the challenge to eat here. Mac 24/7 has a regular menu with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. There isn't anything noteworthy about the food - it's your run of the mill hotel eatery that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You can't miss the entrance to the restaurant.

They have a big seated area with a nice view of the garden.

I like these bar-style seating areas, equipped with flat screen TVs.

Freestyle eggs ($14) - potatoes, toast, choice of meat, and eggs.

The Mac Daddy Pancake Challenge ($16) - three 14" pancakes with blueberry topping. We didn't attempt the actual challenge but we ordered the pancakes just to see what it was like. It was big on size, but not on taste. The two of us ate about 3/4 of one pancake at the restaurant and took the rest home.

The pancakes are served with three different syrups - maple, coconut, and guava.

I took this picture so that you can appreciate the enormity of the pancakes.
