    It is a little bit out of the way but a place in Tewksbury on Rt.38 called the Deli King Makes great Mac and Cheese. Very Creamy. The place is a cafeteria style place so you get to see all the meals they have right before you.It is just a cafeteria that happens to make the best Mac and Cheese I have had around

      It's not gourmet but I like Bob The Chef's mac and cheese the best!

      1. re: ScoobieSnack

        Currently it is only on the menu on Fridays and Sundays.

      2. Silvertone Bar and Grill, near the Park St. MBTA. Temple St if my memory serves correct. THE BEST MAC&CHEESE!

          Silvertone: 69 Bromfield Street (617)338-7887

          yes they do have great mac and cheese!

            on a side note-- Silvertone also has great steak tips, too, for $9 or so (with salad and mashed potatoes!). The tips have this strange but addictive burnt caramel note to them. . . .mmmmmm. . . . .

        2. Good Mac and Cheese:

          FIGS - very creamy - lots of different cheeses - though somewhat odd shaped pasta

          LINWOOD GRILL - the style of Mac and Cheese that you often find as a side at Barbecue places - classic comfort food

          JASPER'S SUMMER SHACK - in the style of store-bought stuff (like Velveeta!) - yet, somehow, remarkably addictive

          SILVERTONE - very straightforward baked stuff but darn good

            I thought you'd never ask!

            Tremont 647 (at 647 Tremont St, of course) has Macaroni and Cheese with Lobster.

            And, YES, it's great.

            1. There used to be a little red diner on Rte. 99 in Malden that made ambrosial m&c, the classic casserole topped with buttered crumbs. It's been years since I've had a chance to look in, and in any case I think they only had it once a week. Does anybody have an update?

                That's the Phyllis Diner on Rt. 99 and it's still there, altho I haven't been in years. There was a 'for sale' sign for a while, but looks to be open with lots of signs for specials in the window.
