Yes, it’s a chain, and we’re fine with that when the mac ’n cheese is this good. Dig Inn applies its carefully sourced ethos to its mac, made with a custom, three-cheese blend from Vermont’s cultish Jasper Hill Farm.
The kicker: a thick layer of crispy golden breadcrumbs.
Who else loves the mac n' cheese from @diginn? I go n' build a healthy bowl but can't stop myself from getting an extra side every time. 😂🧀🍴 • • • #macncheese #delicious #4cheese #guiltypleasure #sides #yum #eeeeeats #forkyeah #foodiefamily #foodies #foodiesofwestchester #instafoodie #cheesy #creamy #quickbite #bites #funfood

This hole-in-the-wall soul-food restaurant in downtown New Rochelle has only a few seats, but that didn’t stop Southern Living from naming in the best mac ’n’ cheese in New York State.
While we haven’t done the legwork to confirm that accolade, we can say that Pepe’s version, made with cave-aged reserved cheddar, is a classic.

The mac ’n’ cheese at Jacob Styburski’s Texas-style barbecue joint has all the creamy, comforting nostalgia of the stovetop stuff you grew up with — but with a hefty dose of punchy black pepper (perfect for pairing with some of his excellent brisket).
A trio of cheddar, Gruyère, and American create the platonic ideal of nutty, cheesy flavor and luscious, silky sauce.

Bacon and pickled jalapeños take this super-sized serving of mac ’n’ cheese to a truly addictive place, adding just enough tang, spice, and smoke to keep things interesting. Plus, there will probably be enough to take home and have leftovers for days (or not).
