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 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.”

ok cafe and mary macs tie for top place….would not recommend mccormick and schmits (sauce is more like alfredo than mac and cheese sauce)

Fox Bros is by far the best in town. The second best in town is Fox Bros when they add Brunswick stew to it to make their “Fox-A-Roni”!!! The third best in town is Fox bros for the Fried Mac!

For a dark horse selection, my partner recommends the Mac ‘n’ Cheese at Waterhaven at Technology Square. It probably would not be a contender for the best, but it is probably the best organic of its kind. Very unique.

For all those recommending Fox Bros., I’m a little perplexed. Theirs is a competent Mac ‘n’ Cheese, and the paprika does add a little something. But overall I find it dull and uninspired. People I know who are big fans of Fox Bros. (i.e. they eat there 1-2 times a week) warned me away from it on my first visit. But it’s edible. I get it whenever I go. But it’s not spectacular.

And I’m sorry, but mixing it with the Brunswick Stew does not a good Mac ‘n’ Cheese make. Just my humble opinion–YMMV.

The best Mac & Cheese I’ve had in the south is at a new restaurant WEST COBB GRILL. The menu is an awesome fresh twist on southern favorites. Their Fried Green Tomatoes are awesome too!

A good friend of mine named Steve who passed away recently absolutely loved the mac-n-cheese at Strip. I never would have thought a place known for sushi & steaks would have such good mac-n-cheese but it does. Check it out!
