Mack Shack Offers Fresh, Healthy, Fast Food

By Pete Allman

Imagine going to a restaurant that specializes in Fast food that is cooked fresh daily, using all the best ingredients. That's what The Mac Shack represents. Frank Masi and partner, J. Dapper, a real estate developer in Las Vegas are planning to open a chain of Mack Shacks around the country, which could be Franchised. Mack Shack is a fun place, specializing in Pastas, salads, and grilled cheese.

My guest on this culinary journey was Mark Richards. Mark has a radio show on KDWN 720AM on Saturdays at 7pm. His diversity in foods is excellent, making for a great afternoon of dining.

Our journey began with a bowl of sweet roasted corn chowder with onions. This dish was very tasty. All the cuisine at Mac Shack are prepared to order. Other soups prepared daily are Mushroom soup and Chicken Noodle soup. Our next dish was the Green Machine. It consists of Organic blend of greens, carrots, cucumber, broccoli and heirloom tomatoes tossed in a home-made watercress vinaigrette. There also several other selections with the Antipasto Salad being one of the favorite. The main entrees served were the Mac and Cheese sandwich, made with Wisconsin Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses on white bread grilled golden brown, Pepperjack Mac, melted in pasata with Pepper Jack and Monterey Jack cheeses topped with fresh jalapenos, Shrimp Scampi, which is prepared with linguini pasta with tender shrimp sautéed with fresh tomatoes and parsley in a lemon and garlic sauce is also a tasty dish. There's the Veggie, which is prepared with Rigatoni pasta tossed with fresh spring vegetables sautéed in garlic and olive oil.

For those who prefer gluten free pasta, there is various dishes available also.

The sides, as they are referred to are Garlic Bread, Meatballs Gnocchi, with a choice of pesto, marinara or bacon-Alfredo sauce, Artichoke Gratin which are fresh artichokes sautéed in a lemon garlic sauce, topped with seasoned bread crumbs and Cauliflower Gratin, consisting of fresh cauliflower, topped with seasoned bread crumbs, Parmesan mozzarella cheeses, baked golden brown. Mac Shack is located in Summerlin at 8975 West Charleston Blvd. suite 140 Las Vegas, Nevada 89107. Call for your next catering event or party at (702) 243-1722.

Celebrity Scene News rates Mack Shack three stars for an overall good experience.
