Magic Soul Food Express
Mac Shack pays homage to a quintessential American comfort food with a menu entirely dedicated to mac 'n' cheese. Purists can order individual pans of classic mac with creamy monterey jack and cheddar, but Mac Shack's chefs also create a dozen other takes on the dish using ingredients such as smoked-duck confit, emmental cheese, and basil pesto. Jerk mac pairs jerk chicken with a three-cheese blend, and the PhatLipp mac features braised beef, sautéed mushrooms, and sour-cream sauce.
Despite the gourmet ingredients, Mac Shack maintains a friendly, casual vibe with just a couple of tables inside. Diners order at the counter, then decide whether they'd like to eat in the sunny yellow dining room or cartwheel home with a family-size pan.
