Nothing screams comfort food quite like mac and cheese. The best part about it is how creative restaurants can be, from the pasta choice to the extras that can elevate the dish in a way you don’t see at most family events.

1. Three Rivers Distilling Company

Three Rivers Distilling Company's version, the Mac & Cheese, lets the White Cheddar Bacon cheese sauce do all the heavy lifting. They do give the option to add chicken thigh, pork belly, salmon, or beef short ribs if you enjoy topping your mac!

2. Granite City

Make a stop for the Bock & Cheese from Granite City. The breadcrumb topping on this one gives it a nice variety of texture between the bacon, and the creamy pepper jack cheese sauce.

3. Mad Anthony Brewing Company

For this mac and cheese, Mad Anthony Brewing Company oven bakes their mac and cheese creating a crispy top covered in cornbread crumbs. You can choose your style with pork belly, chicken, or meatless with garden vegetables.

Recognized for their BBQ, Shigs In Pit also offers a creamy mac and cheese on the side at both their Fairfield and Maplecrest locations. The Green Chile Mac and Cheese is so tasty, you'll always choose it for your BBQ platter side. Don't be scared of the name either. It has a little bit of a kick, but it's not too spicy.

5. Ruth's Chris Steak House

Although this Mac & Cheese is only a side dish, it is worth the mention. If you're a fan of lobster and Mac & Cheese, then you'll want to order Ruth's Chris Steak House's Lobster Mac & Cheese as your Signature Side Dish. Or, maybe order a couple if you're not willing to share! This side offers a generous portion of tender lobster combined with Ruth's Chris signature three-cheese macaroni.
