Mac 'n' cheese is an easy dish to modify—you can mix up the cheese types, add toppings, or sub tomato sauce for the cheese and linguine for the macaroni. Riff on a classic dish with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Gourmet Mac 'n' Cheese
The menu showcases up to 15 varieties of mac 'n' cheese, including classic mac with monterey jack and cheddar ($6/small, $12.50/large); Mac Daffy with smoked-duck confit and fontina ($8/small, $16.50/large); and shrimp mac with gouda and parmesan ($8.50/small, $17.75/large).
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.
