When Mad Mac opened at the Boise Spectrum in late 2017, it was the initial of its sort in the Treasure Valley: a restaurant devoted to macaroni and cheese.
But like other hospitality companies, Mad Mac struggled to employ the service of this spring. So many months back, the counter-service cafe shut at 7709 W. Overland Street — “with a hefty coronary heart,” Mad Mac introduced on Facebook.
What wasn’t completely clear was no matter if it could close up currently being permanent. “Hopefully this is only non permanent,” Mad Mac wrote on Fb. A be aware on the doorway at the cafe is substantially much more optimistic: “We are temporarily shut till we can use a lot more workforce,” it states. “It’s not long lasting by any signifies.”
Boise Spectrum management expects the cafe to reopen. A get in touch with and Facebook concept to the Mad Mac owner were not returned.
Thankfully, Mad Mac’s food truck, which has served Boise since early 2016, is however rolling. Here’s where the truck is scheduled to be this 7 days: Scentsy employee appreciation, 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 1 Loose Screw Beer Co., 1511 W. McMillan Highway, Meridian, 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 2 Motorfest at Meridian Speedway, 335 S. Primary St., Meridian, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 3.
Mad Mac’s menu is easy in the very same direct way that consolation food hits the location. It gives a handful of mouthwatering mac-and-cheese versions in a bowl, ranging from the common Mad Mac in a 5-cheese sauce to Buffalo Chicken Mac (hen thighs in cayenne pepper sauce above Mad Mac with ranch dressing) and Philly Cheesesteak Mac (thinly sliced rib eye steak with sauteed peppers and onions over Mad Mac).
Mac-and-cheese-craving moviegoers going to Edwards Cinemas are out of luck — for now. But on social media, Mad Mac put a positive spin on its food items-truck-only predicament. “We are likely again to our roots of where Mad Mac commenced. … We’re enthusiastic to be back on the streets a lot more.”
