The sauce: This is a big one for me. I like a sweeter sauce. Many of my friends like a tangy sauce. Some places swirl it on, others slather it on. It's a personal preference.

The cheese: How melted should it be? I don't want it sliding off the crust in one piece. Do you know what I mean?

We would like to thank our many loyal customers who have made Mack's a family tradition generation after generation. Stop by and enjoy one of our thin crispy classic cheese pies.
