After learning there was such a place that only serves macaroni and cheese, my boyfriend and I had to make a pilgrimage there. And it did not disappoint. The restaurant reminded me a lot of a cafe; it felt like somewhere to spend a few hours chatting with friends and no one would mind. They are also really great with food allergies, with a sign at the case register asking you to please let the staff know about your allergies, and checked some of the products I was concerned about. There were even a couple of gluten free options.
Lewis ordered the mac and cheese grilled cheese with tomato soup. Whoever created this is a fantastic person. I feel like this must be a really big hit with drunk and hung over people alike. I think the bread really made the dish, as the thick, crusty, salty, base for the creamy mac and cheese.
I went out on a limb and created my own mac and cheese, which I think is a great option for a lot of people who are as indecisive as I. I chose the regular macaroni, with a rose sauce, and added bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and chicken. Aside from the cheesy sauce, there was a thick layer of cheese grated on top, just because they can. It was just heaven, there is nothing else that I can say other than I loved the whole experience of it.
And, with tax, I paid $11 and didn't have to eat for the rest of the day. This place is really just phenomenal if you're looking for some great junk food. I probably should have signed up for their stamp card. And a gym membership.
