It would appear that dreams really do come true. A restaurant featuring seven types of specialty Macaroni & Cheese is in the process of opening in Bridgeville.
Susan McMahon and Randy Tozzie, the owners of Bakn in Carnegie, are currently putting the finishing touches on their newest food adventure, Mac & Toz Alehouse.
Some of the specialty Mac & Cheeses set to be on the menu include a “Lobster Pot” Mac & Cheese, and the “Mac Attack,” which will feature French fries, onion rings, and bacon.
Owner Susan McMahon says that the menu is “elevated comfort food,” and although the Mac & Cheese is sure to be a customer favorite, there will be a wide variety of other dishes.
“We are also going to have a lot of bar bites,” says McMahon. “Things like chicken wings, a Mediterranean plate, kale-quinoa balls, and a cauliflower lentil dish. There will also be two vegetarian sandwiches. One will be a salmon filet with a dill sauce – that is a personal favorite.”
Another feature of the restaurant will be the “Whiskey Wall,” which will display 24 curated whiskeys that will change on a rotating basis. Whiskey from every bottle will be available for $3 a taste.
“Since we are rotating them, we will have a lot of different types. There will be obscure ones, popular ones, and even different ages of the same whisky. New alcohol can be crazy expensive, but this will give people a reason to try something new at a reasonable price. Plus, it will be a better use for the whiskey instead of just sitting on a shelf,” says McMahon.
McMahon credits Tozzie as the mastermind behind the menu.
“He is really creative, and has a really great feel for blending things together. We travel a lot and get food inspiration from our travels. In the past year we have been to Chicago, New Orleans, the Florida Keys. Randy is great at making friends in the kitchen, and learning from them. A new tuna dish on our menu at Bakn was inspired from our trip to Florida. ”
The name, Mac & Toz, is a playful reference to the Mac & Cheese aspect of the menu, but is also the nicknames of both McMahon and Tozzie. Construction is complete, and the restaurant is set to open later this month. Updates on the opening can be found by following Mac & Toz on social media.

I hope since the remodel, the place is more handicapped accessible. It was downright awful trying to get a wheelchair in the previous restaurant.
Is it located where Sauce used to be?
Will any of the menu items be vegan?

Wish you two the best. I miss Sauce but it seems like your going to be a great addition to Bridgeville
Bettylou swentkowsky says
Will you have gluten free food.
Barb Holley says
Would your restaurant be interested in sponsoring a tent at the Wing over Pittsburgh Airshow in our VIP area?

Is this off the curwan heights exit or the bridgeville exit..?
Sally Adams says
It’s in between but closer to Bridgeville exit than to KIRWIN Hgts. exit, (although I think they changed the name of that particular exit recently). It is IN Bridgeville, between the bridges that define the town at the main intersection. Corner of Washington and Station St.
Just want to let you know that while salmon is pescatarian, it is not vegetarian.
Will there be any vegan options?
When is it opening?
What’s the hiring process? If so, which positions? Thank you.
Looking forward to giving it a try….never did like Sauce. Was only in there once and it was a very, and I mean VERY FILTHY place. Almost slipped and fell walking to a table, the floor was so greasy and dirty. Worse then that you could see the cooks while they were preparing food and they also looked dirty. No hair nets and looked like a bath was something they never heard of. 😩 After getting to my table I got right back up and walked out never to go again… Bridgeville needs some nice restaurants/bars. It’s been the same ole thing for many years. Tambellinis was just replaced with “Rail Yard” and there is nothing nice about the place, that is unless you like fish tacos and a very limited menu. I enjoy a snack when out for drinks so your place sounds nice, looking forward to it!!
