Ever since school has been back in session, I have been jonesing for some of the cheesy goodness that is mac-and-cheese. I couldn't tell if it for a nostagic purpose or my growing boy hunger. All I knew was I needed it now...AND FAST!
Then came along a little place called The Fix. Owners Amanda Rickle and Adam opened up the place back in mid August. As a child Amanda grew up in the restaurant industry and later was also trained by her father, who was a part-owner of nine Tucson restaurants. Adam on the other hand, spent abruptly ten years as a Senior Training Manger for AT&T, inwhich he gained skills in maganging and customer service. Together they made Tucson first and only Mac-and-Cheese Headquarters.
When I went with my Mom and Dad, walls were orange and the place was small. Also it was nice looking. Their Mac-and-Cheese came in two sizes Major or Minor. I personalty wanted a Master's in Macaroniology. My Mom ordered a Club Sandwich (8.49), My Dad a Minor Bacon Bacon ($7.49), and I had a Major Lobster (11.49).
My Mother's Club Sandwich came with turkey, bacon, ham, a special fix sauce, avecado, cucumber, lettuce, and tomato. The sandwich had just the right amount of meats, that you could still get you mouth around it. Just enough sauce to keep the sandwich moist. The was seet hard enough to keep it together, but soft.
My Dad's Bacon Bacon was how you say "Baconrific". The salty flavor of the bacon mixed well with the creamyness of the cheese. The pasta it'self was firm enough to handle the cheese without breaking down and becoming too soft. There was an additional layer of cheese melted over the top which included bread crumbs.
On my Lobster mac and cheese there were bits of real (not fake) lobster. The lobster itself was tender and provided a nice oasis of flavor for the cream covered macaroni. The portion size was large and yet not too filling.
Come over to this restaurant if you want a cheesy experience!
