Guam Diner Bytes: Mac & Marti
Talk about a place where I've been conspicuously absent! I should feel guilty, but now I know that someone's looking out for me because if I had free rein to eat at Mac & Marti every day for lunch or dinner, I would probably be twice my current over-grown size! In May, I stopped in at the behest of owner Art Paguio and sat down only to be astonished at what Art had been alluding to all along about his new menu creations.
In fact, I'm inclined to agree with their own assessment at the top of their menu that claims they've got "the most unique variety of Specialty Burgers and Sandwiches in Tumon!"
So, I bellied up to the bar a little past one-ish for a late lunch and ordered their signature Mac & Marti Burger ($11.50), which is made with a full half-pound of ground sirloin specially seasoned to enhance the taste. This huge Sirloin burger is loaded with sautéed mushrooms, jalapenos, onions, bacon and either American or Swiss Cheese. I did the American cheese, and had onion rings.
These are awesome onion rings, by the way, and when I got a look at that monster of a burger, I took a deep breath and dove in! Okay, yes, it was definitely a contender in the best burger battle! But wait – this burger's got siblings! You can get a Texas Burger, Bacon Wrap Burger, Shroom Swiss Burger, Blue Cheese Burger, Inside Out Burger, Hafa Adai Burger, Beck's Burger, Bacon Ranch Burger, Philly Cheese Burger, Heart Stopper and Pizza Burger!
Other sandwich and food eats available include Mac's Deli Trio, Mac-anini (Their Panini), Club, Mac's Monte Cristo, Grilled reuben, meat ball sandwich, spicy buffalo sandwich, fish & chips, calamari, nachos, quesadillas, cheese poppers, and wings (glorious wings!). Yes, Art was braggin' on his Wings so now I've got to get back down there and sample their wings.
I've got plenty of choices at Mac & Marti's. Their selection includes the original spicy buffalo, Firecracker Wings, Bloody Mary Cajun Spiced, Italian parmesan, Asian sesame, lemon & pepper wings, honey bbq, and salt & pepper (their only "naked" wings, seasoned with salt & pepper and cooked on the crispy side)! That's how we like 'em!
So, as you can see fellow foodies, I have my work cut out for me! Let's get to Mac & Marti and do some serious eating! Anyone care to join?
