OUR PICKS

1) Community Q

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “The AJC has printed the recipe not once, but twice in our food pages, and it remains one of our readers’ favorites on accessAtlanta.com. Owner David Roberts uses rigatoni pasta, coats it with sharp cheddar, Monterey jack and Parmesan cheeses and lots of heavy cream, then bakes it until it melds into a mass of oozing, cheesy, almost unidentifiable heaven.”

MetroFresh! They make it most Monday or Tuesday evenings. Sometimes they add Lobster! It is beyond good and one dinner portion lasts me 2 days.

I just had the mac and cheese at Hobnob and it was pretty killer. P’cheen used to have a jalapeno mac and cheese… and that was bad ass too.

Hey droopydog! It’s Sysco, if you want to spout gibberish, at least make sure the spelling is right. OK Cafe has the best mac and cheese.

Wow this one’s tough. My vote would have to go to Dave Poe’s BBQ on Whitlock in Marietta (Formerly Sam & Dave’s 2). But the Mac ‘n’ Cheese at South City Kitchen is also great. There’s no one right way to do this dish, so this should be interesting.

OK Cafe’ – their triple mac n’ cheese is to die for – however, I stopped eating there because their prices have increased 400% – and South City Kitchen is not bad at all but I sure do miss the OK Cafe’s Mac n’ Cheese!

So, for all you guys touting Community BBQ? Have you tried Dave Poe’s (i.e. Sam & Dave’s 2) also? Perhaps this isn’t the best forum for my query, but I’m hoping you can comment on the similarities/differences between the two. I know the Community recipe originated at Sam & Dave’s, but was it changed along the way?
