The term “American Cuisine” tends to evoke deli cious thoughts of homemade apple pies, Mom’s meatloaf, crispy fried chicken and, of course, good old-fashioned burgers. When you throw the word “Modern” into the mix, however, you get the menu at MAC (Modern American Cuisine) 24/7 Restaurant & Bar — all made with a hint of local flair.

Located in the quaint and chic Hilton Waikiki Beach hotel, the restaurant is famous for staying open 24 hours, seven days a week, and offering more-than-generous portions — including the M.A.C. Daddy Pancakes (part of an epic 5-pound food challenge). It’s the place to be when a craving comes on at any time of the day.

The restaurant keeps it modern by continuously adding new bites to the menu, including seasonal short stack pancake flavors that change almost every month. During June, MAC 24/7 is featuring The Mango Tango short stack. Other new items include Pan Seared Boneless Pork Chop, Fully Loaded Local Bacon Cheeseburger, Giant Tempura Fish Sandwich and Pina Colada Creme Brulee for dessert.

The restaurant also welcomes sous chef Chris Yniguez to the team, a California native who previously worked at Trump Hotel. He’s been in Hawaii for four years now and is enjoying continuing his culinary career at MAC 24/7.
