  1. I'm sure you mean what sit down restaurants have it but I love Whole Foods mac n cheese. I keep it in the fridge most of the time for my 8 year old. Don't buy the stuff in the cold case. For some reason, it tastes way different from the hot case.

      For something a bit different, try the mac n cheese balls at Larkin's. www.larkinsjoint.com

      1. Magnolia, on Lake, serves an excellent version.

        1. I love the panko-breaded mac and cheese at redwhite+bluezz

          1. Still crazy for the spicy mac and cheese at Fred 83.

                      83 is how many times you have to visit before you get good service.

                        I would have agreed on the service issue, but since Mr. Eric is gone, they have really improved! I got dragged their several months ago, kicking and screaming, I was surprised, been back 3 times since. I was there last friday, had a great meal and excellent service!
