Mac n' cheese lovers in the Dutchess County area may be feeling a little, well, not so gouda these days, perhaps a little bleu, as a popular restaurant known for their extensive mac n' cheese offerings has announced that they have officially closed the doors to their Wappingers Falls location.

The restaurant itself, as well as the equipment inside, are for sale, and some might say the 'pasta-abilities' for the former location are endless.  They did though, share some pretty exciting news and updates about their Middletown location.

MIX N' MAC Closes Wappingers Falls Restaurant

A social media announcement on Monday, October 17th from MIX N' MAC shared the news that the Wappingers Falls location of the specialty mac n' cheese restaurant had officially closed.

They thanked customers for a great time in Wappingers Falls for the early two years they were open.

The restaurant was in the works since 2018 and things take time between building renovations and our build out. There were not many set backs until the Covid shut down, so many challenges that we barreled through to get open. We did however open strong during Covid and fulfilled our commitment in Wappingers.


The Wappingers Falls MIX N' MAC restaurant, located at 1557 RT 9 opened back in early 2021, right in the middle of the onset of COVID.  The Wappingers location opened as a result of many Dutchess County'ers making the trip over the river into Middletown to visit their flagship restaurant location.
As for the Wappingers Falls location, it is currently on the market under RE/MAX Town & Country with Howard Paysen, and even the equipment is up for grabs. More information is available by emailing
