Sacramento - Mac & Cheese

Anyone know where I can get some good Mac & Cheese in Sacramento?

I've tried the Jack's Urban Eats version and it was not that great. I found it really dry and reminiscent of the Kraft powered cheese kind.

Help! I'm going through withdrawals....

Thank you!

  1. Plaza Hof Brau? Never had it but I do know they have it. And it looks good. Looks like the traditional cheddar cheese baked version.

    1. the whole foods by my house has pretty good mac and cheese, i've heard roxy does too

      1. I really like the Mac & Cheese at Sandra Dee's in Midtown.

          Bella Bru has a mac-n-cheese "gratine" on their winter menu in Natomas. I have had it rich and creamy!

        2. California Cafe at Arden Fair has excellent mac & cheese, really rich and creamy, and their bread is addictive.

          1. Boudin SF at the Loehmann's Plaza has a Dungeness Crab Macaroni & Cheese that sounds interesting, but I have not made it over there yet.

              It is really good and the crab makes it decadent but it is not as creamy as traditional mac and cheese.

                I was running late this week and picked up Macaroni & Cheese from Taylor's Market in their premade dinner section. It was VERY creamy with a light cheese flavor. There was a little seasoning that also perked up the taste buds with penne pasta as the base. All in all, a very good M&C - but not traditional elbows and cheddar.

                  Was the seasoning nutmeg...'cause, I love that!

                    It could have been. Nugget also sells a pre-made macaroni & cheese. Their pre-made stuff is usually top notch.
