Good takeout mac 'n' cheese?

Hi,
I'm having a serious mac and cheese craving...any thoughts on where I can get some good mac n cheese "to go..?"
Silvertone has one of my favorites in town...but I'm hoping for something on the south side of town...ie. Dorchester, South Boston, South End, JP....but my mind is drawing a major blank. How's the mac n cheese at Bob the Chefs (Bob's Southern Bistro now, right?) Any other thoughts? I guess I could just make it myself....

  1. Bob the Chef's has solid Mac n' Cheese, but I think they might only offer it as a side, not a full meal. I'm not sure, but you could always order a couple of sides of it.

    People rave about Garden of Eden's Mac n' Cheese, but I don't see what the big deal is (also, if you're going to get it from there, just stop in at Lionette's two doors over instead. It's a little Italian grocer owned by the same family, they sell the same Mac n' Cheese and I believe it's a couple bucks cheaper).

    Other than that, I'm drawing a blank....

    1. C F Donovans on Savin Hill makes a decent mac & cheese. It's similar to Silvertone's version.

        Hmm I have the Donovan's takeout menu and there's no mac and cheese listed. Perhaps I'll give 'em a call. And yeah, Zon's IS good. But $13 for takeout mac and cheese is a little more than I'd like to spend. So....we'll see.

      2. If you want good macaroni and cheese south of Boston, definitely try Zon's in Jamaica Plain. It's one of the best in the Boston area, IMO.

          Macaroni Simone at Fig's Restaurant is pretty delicious! Made with Orzo, 4 cheeses, and crisy bread crumbs on the top.

              Roche Bros prepared foods section in West Roxbury is really good. It's not the kind baked with breadcrumbs, it's the creamy homemade elbow mac kind. It freezes well too.

                The Roche Bros mac & cheese is really good.

                yumm, now I want some!

              The one time I had Zon's I nearly sent it back. It tasted like macaroni baked in heavy cream. There was no cheese taste whatsoever. :(

            3. The Good Life has a terrific mac and cheese with truffles. Yum!

                It's also under the side dishes w/o truffles (at a lower price)--and still awesome (and filling).

              2. Cottonwood does a good poblano mac n' cheese and I've ordered it as takeout. YUM!!!
