Most of us never outgrow our love of childhood classic macaroni and cheese. Whether straight from the box or made from scratch, it’s a comfort food favorite and an eternal, picky eater pleaser. We stirred up six spots that serve the real deal—not the florescent orange stuff. So save the box for home and treat yourself—uh, we mean them—with some creamy mac and cheese that is sure to hit the spot.

Community Q Barbecue

There’s just something about barbecue joints. They know how make the best macaroni and cheese. This Decatur barbecue restaurant’s mac and cheese is often cited at the cream of the crop. And with good reason—it’s pretty incredible. Community Q’s version features a blend of three cheeses: Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Parmesan. It’s smooth, creamy and slightly peppery cheese sauce is balanced with with thick rigatoni noodles. Forget the calorie count and dig in!
