In 1959, Mary Fazio opened the original Shack, using her father’s recipes and her kitchen’s pots and pans. She created a warm and cozy place where her friends and family gathered to enjoy her home-cooked meals. She made everything from scratch, from pizza dough to soups, pasta sauces to salad dressings. Mary’s Italian comfort food kept her friends coming back to the Shack again and again. Mary pioneered the “open kitchen” concept so she could greet each guest as they walked through the door, and keep an eye out to make sure that no one left hungry. Over fifty years later, we still use the recipes, ingredients, love and care that we learned from Mary. Our company is still owned and operated by the family; the third generation of the family handles the day-to-day running of the business in roles ranging from CEO to spearheading our charitable giving. Mary’s great-grandchildren can be found learning the ropes in our restaurants, as well as recording our radio ads. And, of course, Toto, Peggy and Anna are still keeping an eye on the business; it has their mother’s name on it! Sunday - Thursday: 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

Local Italian Hit!
Great restaurant in a local chain I’ve been visiting for years. Love the takeout options during this pandemic- staff is friendly and makes great food! Well worth a trip.
Wow my local neighborhood Mary's really let us down tonight...too busy to answer our phone call...too long to get our food...not an option for dinner with kiddos tonight and an PIC Lisa made it very...
