The Best Fast-Food Restaurant Mac and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese, a usually excellent mixture, is a kind of uncommon meals whose processed variations, orange cheese and all, usually simply style higher than its artisanal iterations. Whether or not that’s purely a product of nostalgia for Kraft stove-top varieties, or as a result of extremely processed meals are engineered to be extra addictive, it appears like a missed alternative that extra chains aren’t, like Chick-fil-A as of right now, serving mac and cheese alongside their fries and nuggets.

However even earlier than Chick-fil-A jumped on the cheese-slathered macaroni practice, a couple of enterprising fast-food and fast-casual manufacturers had already pioneered the artwork of the quick-serve mac (for a lot of chains, the key is that it’s in all probability pre-made, both saved frozen or saved in heat batches).

A few of these chains, like KFC and Popeyes, are oriented round southern-style fried hen, so giving one other nod to soul meals with a aspect of mac and cheese is sensible for model identification. Others, like Boston Market, lean into Thanksgiving or household meal traditions by providing mac and cheese with mashed potatoes, rotisserie hen, candy corn, and cornbread. After which there are the fast-casual chains — Panera Bread, Noodles & Firm — that costume up the dish with nicer cheeses and actual dine-in silverware, striving for a bougier picture even whereas serving the consolation meals of our childhoods.

Having grown up within the suburbs and eaten all of these mac and cheeses at one level or one other in my life, I really feel uniquely certified to evaluate these nationwide, chain-ified choices. May I current a rating:

5. KFC

A completely okay, albeit primary, instance of a fast-food mac and cheese. The noodles pattern in the direction of mushy, and the cheese can generally be grainy.

4. Popeyes

A favourite of Anthony Bourdain’s, this mac and cheese is about on par with KFC’s, solely creamier. I discover that it usually wants extra seasoning when the sauce is just too watery and thus blander.

3. Boston Market

The rotisserie chain’s shiny orange mac and cheese tastes fairly much like Kraft’s traditional field model. The massive distinguishing issue right here is the rotini noodles, which entice the cheese sauce in between their spirals, leading to a satisfying — presumably perverse — squish with each chunk.

2. Panera Bread

Made with white cheddar, for a change of tempo, Panera Bread’s mac and cheese is extremely wealthy and creamy, virtually to the purpose of extra. In my teenage years, when Panera was the last word after-school hangout for prime schoolers with sophistication, it was not unusual to see teenagers ordering mac and cheese in a bread bowl, as few however 16-year-old metabolisms can deal with.

1. Noodles & Firm

You shouldn’t be shocked to study {that a} purveyor of noodle dishes is aware of the way to put out a bowl of mac and cheese. This model has good taste, the precise cheese-to-noodle ratio, and has achieved a superior degree of texture by the ultimate sprinkling of unmelted shredded cheese on prime. The professional transfer right here is to strive the traditional, unadorned selection earlier than advancing to barbecue pork mac, full with crispy jalapeños. Positive, one might argue that Noodles & Firm — with its stripped-down model of desk service and bussing — is a contact too polished to be ranked in the identical listing as KFC and Popeyes, however to that I say: who cares, it’s good.

Word: I am instructed that Bojangles, Roy Rogers, Wawa, and some smaller, regional chains additionally serve mac and cheese. I have by no means been to those locations and thus can’t precisely choose their choices, therefore their exclusion from this listing, sorry!!
