Mac N' Cheese

Whiskey Cake

Whiskey Cake Mac N Cheese


Even the name of the restaurant upholds their reputation for decadence.  Whiskey Cake offers a wide arrange of whiskeys, of course, and their dinner menu is just as smooth. After ordering a side of Mac N' Cheese to go with our 3 Little Pigs - a trio of slow-roasted pulled pork sliders, whiskey BBQ, apple slaw and crispy onion strings - it was the last few bites of cheesy pasta that we ended up fighting over. Their Mac N' Cheese is oh so creamy, cheesy and the bread crumbs give it just the right amount of crunch.  Take it from me, be sure to get your own bowl and eat it first so you don't have to share. Then pair your dinner with a Tennessee Stud - a fine blend of Jack Daniel’s, local honey lemon, old fashioned bitters and orange bitters - and  call it a night. It doesn't get any better than this.

What’s not to love about mac and cheese in general, but come on...deep-fried Mac and Cheese Bites? Yes, please! These savory and crunchy, deep-fried little dipping bites will make your mouth water when you visit Wayback Burger. This yummy goodness is a side menu option that can easily pair with some other favorites like, the Rodeo Burger - a two patty burger, topped with cheddar cheese and their signature crispy onion ring.  Menu

Sure their ribs are delicious, but The Ranch sure knows how to whip up some down home comfort food, i.e., their Cadi-Mac'N Chz.  These curly bites of creamy pasta are smothered in a gooey, cheesy goodness and topped with crispy breadcrumbs. You won't want to tell your mama that they're better than hers, we'll just keep that between us.  Menu

Mac N' Cheese

Cork and Pig Tavern

Cork & Pig Mac N Cheese


We decided to call ahead at Cork and Pig Tavern and take home their Crispy Chicken Sandwich with Mac N' Cheese on the side. Talk about melt-in-your-mouth goodness! Their creamy blend of gourmet cheeses drenched over rich pasta is topped with the right amount of crunchy bread crumbs. I'd say that leftovers are great the next day, but there weren't any. Maybe I'll order double next time. Dine in or take home, either way the Mac N' Cheese at Cork & Pig is a whole bunch of cheesy happiness. Menu.
