I'm always searching for good Mac and cheese. Have you got an excellent recipe?

On my commercial list: Noodles and Co. on State.

One of the signature dishes at Zingerman's Roadhouse, I believe. Six styles available, $12.50-$19.00. The pimento cheese version is delightfully zesty.

The Mac-n-Cheese at Casey's is pretty good. It's more like a cheese noodle soup.

The Old Town's Mac-n-Cheese is quite tasty, but it's an infrequent special. Put in a request with the owners, Chris and Steve!
