About Us

The Magic Time Machine Restaurant first opened its doors in August of 1973, in San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Jim Hasslocher's vision of fine food being served in an energized atmosphere by fun, not stuffy, servers became a reality. Our Addison, Tx. location opened a few years later in 1979. The public has been wowed nightly by our costumed characters and our 'funky nostalgic' buildings, as well as our vast selection of hand-cut steaks, prime rib, and fresh seafood. We don't forget the little ones either, with a wide choice of kid's meals on a menu created just for them.

Our dining rooms are like no place else, with no two seating areas alike. In San Antonio, you can sit at the Sweethearts Table, in The Attic, a Thatched Hut or even an old Refrigerator. The Tee-Pee, Lunchbox, a Dunce-cap and a Carousel (complete with horses) are popular areas in Addison. The one thing consistent in all locations is our salad bar, a shiny red 1952 MG-TD Roadster that has been modified to serve as a soup and salad bar. A trip to the car comes with every meal.

The thing that sets The Magic Time Machine apart is our zany cast of characters who transport our guests into another point in time. Our servers dress in costumes representing popular pop culture icons from the past, present, and future. The entertainment comes from the humorous interaction with your server in a family friendly environment. Pirate or Princess? Hero or Villain? We have characters for every occasion and group. At The Magic Time Machine, 'Laughing Aloud is Allowed'!
