Restaurant with really good burger and mac and cheese?

I know there are tons of threads about the best burger in the city, and others about the best mac n cheese, but can anyone recommend a restaurant that has a really good burger AND mac n cheese? They're two of my boyfriend's favorite dishes, and I'm looking for a restaurant that has stellar versions of both. And if they have mashed potatoes as well on their menu, that would be an added plus.

          What about the Redhead? I admittedly haven't had the burger (although it's supposed to be one of their trademarks I think) or the mac & cheese but both are definitely on the menu and I always I have enjoyed everything else on their menu.

            I liked the Redhead burger when I tried it but my friends and I thought the patty had some sort of sauce of seasoning added. We were fine with it, but purists wouldn't be. It tasted a bit like Worcestershire or soy sauce.

              Oh interesting, good to know for the future.

        2. Brother Jimmy's serves both. While they aren't known for the burgers, they are pretty damn good. (I'm partial to the sliders myself) and the mac and cheese is creamy and cheesy. Mashed potatoes also on the menu.
