Hi everyone, long time I haven't posted but here it is , Dave Portnoy from Barstool finally reviewed 'Mack's Pizza , he did Sam's yesterday and scored them 7.9 ,
Mack's is lower , maybe too greasy for his taste.

Thanks Zeppi for Dave's reviews of Mack's Pizza and Sam's.  Interesting that Dave thinks Manco & Manco and Maruca's are really good boardwalk style pizza's, and Mack's falls below Manco & Manco, when they both are basically the same.  Guess Dave might have gotten a little baked pizza there, or something else.






When I made pizza's all of mine weren't exactly the same either.   :-D

We were at the shore for a day about 5-6 weeks ago.  Ate 2 slices of Mack's pizza.  Spent the rest of the time on the beach.

Bill,

I still don't have my taste and smell back right from Covid, so I sure can't make a rating right now.   :-D

I like Mack's. When I'm there I go to Mack's and never Sam's. It's possible that I'd like Sam's better, but it seems more NY style (I recall reading that they use Grande), and I'd prefer to get something more unique/local (ie cheddar and the sauce swirl).

Thanks Bill!  I had some slices of pizza from a local pizzeria last night and could taste them some.

Matt, 

Thanks for your thoughts!  Good to hear you like Mack's.  I did try Sam's somewhere on this thread and thought it tasted bland, although it looked good.

Sorry for my late reply Norma  ,   I was surprised that he didn't get more kick out of it , for me , I remember that Mack's
was an explosion of flavour for taste buds  , oh well , I think that when he sees too much oil , it looses a lot of points.
Can I ask how close your sauce recipe is from Mack's ?,  still struggling with mine !  :-\

Zeppi,

Mack's pizza is more greasy sometimes.  Yes, an explosion of flavor.  Think Mack's uses pretty much oregano in their sauce and their sauce is a little on the sweet side.  My sauce I used at market wasn't close to Mack's.  It was fairly complicated and that doesn't mean it was the best either.  :-D  Just used tips here on the forum, and from a pizzeria I visited in Mt. Joy.  Also used November's MAE method.

Here's what an employee said Mack's and Manco and Manco sauce was:
