Jersey Shore's Mack & Manco's Pizza Has A New Name
I might be late to this party, but I was stunned to find out that Mack & Manco's (of Jersey shore pizza fame) is now called Manco & Manco. The change is subtle enough that a double take is required when you look at the sign. Adam Kuban of the Daily Slice has the story:
Word of the name change first came in late December 2011, after what a Manco partner described as an amicable split with the Macks in June 2011—that was just slightly before Slice visited last summer. As Caroline Russock noted during her summer 2011 visit, "more saucy than cheesy, it's a slice that tastes like summer."
As she also noted, the sauce is swirled over the pie in a spiral, which is a signature of many a New Jersey boardwalk–style pizza. Another major hallmark of a boardwalk-style pizza is the use of a mozzarella–white cheddar blend, which gives the slice a sharp, salty flavor. I used to consider cheddar on pizza an abomination (as do many others), but I've grown to like it in recent years.
