The Heavy Table is pleased to feature an upcoming biweekly series of food-focused illustrations by the artist known as WACSO (Walking Around Checking Stuff Out). “Five-Star Food, One-Star Dives” is intended to showcase gems in the rough — easily overlooked little restaurants that offer up wonderful gastronomy in a humble wrapper.
Mac’s Fish & Chips looks like two old Clark gas stations jammed together, but that doesn’t stop them from making a killer fish and chips. I’m no connoisseur but Mac’s comes the closest to what I had in England a few years back; light and flaky, not too greasy, and didn’t leave me feeling like death after I ate it… something that can’t be said about other fish and chips in town.
