Need Delicious Mac N' Cheese in DFW

iluvtennis Jan 13, 2008 05:46 PM

Can someone please tell me where to get some tasty macaroni and cheese in the DFW area. Both upscale and down home recommendations would be appreciated!

    I love Hattie's and Luby's.

    A lot of people like Hibiscus's, but I didn't think much of it.

      Hatties mac n' cheese is to die for! I love it so much I could just about bathe in it.

        I like the smoked gouda and parma ham version at Jasper's.

          The Dallas Morning News reviewed Ounce in Addison, and the accompanying photo of Ounce's mac'n'cheese looks STUNNING:

            Also, Central 214 and Social both have terrific mac'n'cheese, and I've loved it at Hibiscus as well.

            Tillman's Roadhouse has a great white cheddar mac'n'cheese, too!

              Central 214 - I go and just order it with the grilled romaine salad

                I actually like Eatzi's version.

                  Good one. Don't know how I forgot about Eatzi's.

                    The Porch on Henderson has some mighty fine Mac n Cheese.

                      Abacus (when they have it--same owner as Jasper's) and Hattie's. I agree with Toulouse as well.

                        Jaspers' is the greatest ever. Abacus is a close second, with Hattie's a distant third (a bit runnier than I like, but the taste is there).

                          Kenny's Wood Fired Grill in Addison has an awesome mac n cheese. I think it is made with smoked gouda, ham and white truffle oil.

                              Jasper's, Ounce, BLT Steak and Kenny's... all tied in my book!

                                Kitchen 1924 in Lakewood. They do take-out too.
                                Also if you are up for another cheesy-starch combo. You MUST try their Smoked Gouda Grits! They are outstanding.

                                  I second this one. Had it last night and it was AMAZING. Cute place, too.

                                  Perry's @ Routh and Cedar Springs. Yummy bacon and breadcrumbs on top give it a great texture

                                      The Capital Grille has a Lobster Mac n Cheese side dish. Fantastic!
