Who makes the best macaroni and cheese?

  1. I very much like the Mac and Cheese at Aunt Kizzy's Back Porch in Marina del Rey. They use real cheddar instead of the processed american cheese food.

    4325 Glencoe Avenue,
    Marina Del Rey, CA. / (310) 578-1005

    Any place that considers Mac and Cheese a vegetable is ok in my book! (Dinner entrees come with a choice of two vegetables and M&C is one of the choices).

      My vote goes to the Broadway Deli, in Santa Monica, at the corner of Third Street and Broadway.

        I may get flamed for this, but I think the mac and cheese and Koo Koo Roo is worth a try...

          I have had it at all the places listed, and I like all of them. The hounds sure can be relied on to hone in on the best and worst of the field.

            Worst has got to be KFC...

              Greenblatt's deli. It's got a thick layer of cheddar on top that really bubbles and gets crusty if you get the mac 'n cheese to go and heat it up at home. Run it under the broiler...mmmmmm

    2. Roscoe's. Their's is buttery and cheesy and the macaroni at the top has that perfect, slightly browned top...

      1. I never was a fan of mac-n-cheese, until someone offered me a bite of theirs at the Cadillac Cafe. I think it's a 3 cheese type, with a little crust on top. served with a sprig of broccoli.

        1/2 order is plenty.

        This is one of my favorite restaurants here in Los Angeles.


        1. I second both Aunt Kizzys (drowning in hot sauce) and Koo Koo Roo (drowing in their salsa)...i dunno...i liked my mac and cheese "kicked up a notch". mmm..i think i'm going to go to the sunday brunch at kizzys.... :-)

          Luckily they are both 5 minutes from me....and next door to each other to boot!

          1. The deli in Mayfair Market.
