Return of the Mac: Explore SoCal’s cheesiest dish

February 15, 2018 | Orange County

With the rise of veggie pastas and healthy alternatives like spaghetti squash and zoodles, you would be forgiven for thinking mac and cheese is getting ‘elbowed’ out of the spotlight. However here at Uber Eats we know the OG still holds its own. So in honor of the deliciousness that is mac and cheese, we’ve hunted down the tastiest and cheesiest bowls on Uber Eats SoCal. Some are classic, some are fancy, and some are uncommon interpretations we never knew we needed in our lives.

The ‘Can I Have Cheese With That’ Mac and Cheese:

The only thing better than your standard cheddar mac and cheese is when there’s a bunch of other cheeses in the equation as well. And that’s exactly what’s happening at Home Restaurant, where the Mac and Cheese features not just two, not three, but four cheeses (fontina, gruyere, cheddar and parmesan). So it might not be the most healthy, but think of the calcium. That’s good for you, right? You know what, who cares. Just order this dish and thank us later.

The Classic Comfort Food Combo:


Mac n' cheese is taken to the absolute limit with the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Burger from STACKED. This mammoth burger is loaded with an angus beef patty, creamy mac n’ cheese, applewood smoked bacon, an onion ring, Roma tomatoes, and finished with parmesan bread crumbs all on a fluffy brioche bun.

The Customizable Mac and Cheese:

If STACKED has taught us anything, it’s that mac and cheese makes an excellent flavor foundation, perfect for adding extra toppings, sauces, and add-ins. With their “STACKED Mac” menu dedicated entirely to building your own mac, you can pimp out your bowl of cheesy goodness however you choose. Need some creative help? Pick from one of their 7 signature mac and cheeses,with everything from a Sundried Tomato and Andouille Sausage Mac, to a spicy, Chipotle Mac. Heavenly!

The Carbs on Carbs Mac and Cheese:

How do you take mac and cheese to the next level? Scoop it into a massive baked potato, then layer it with bacon, cheddar cheese, green onion, sour cream, and panko parmesan crust. And that’s exactly what Slater’s 50/50 does with their Loaded Baked Potato Mac and Cheese. Trust as, you certainly won’t be left hungry after this dish.

The Classic Mac and Cheese:


With mac and cheese a Southern staple, we set out on a mission to find the best Southern-restaurant serving up this soul-food classic. Our vote? Dickey’s BBQ Pit. This is mac and cheese at it’s finest - served as a homestyle side dish, we recommend adding it to whatever meal you order. They also have a creamy Beef Mac entree loaded with slow smoked brisket, and a Beefy Mac Taco. There are options for every kind of mac n’ cheese combo you can dream of!

The ‘I Can’t Believe this is Vegan’ Mac and Cheese:

Plant-based restaurant Sage Organic Vegan Bistro serves up an extra tasty Mac ‘N Cheese Pizza that doesn’t skimp on flavor. This downright addictive pizza is laden with decadent vegan mac and cheese, broccoli, and vegan-friendly cheddar to top it, proving that plant-based foodies don’t have to miss out on a beloved bowl of mac and cheese.

The Fancy Pants Mac and Cheese:


For a posh version of mac and cheese, order from Wicked Maine Lobster where their Mac and Cheese includes the addition of fresh Maine lobster. Served in your choice of a regular bowl or bread bowl, this 12 oz dish of thick and creamy cheddar-based mac and cheese will have you drooling! After all, sometimes you just have to treat yo’self.

Graduate from your childhood instant mac and cheese when you tap into these restaurants on the Uber Eats app. For even more cheesy goodness, search “mac and cheese” in the app to find other restaurants serving up bowls of heaven in your area.
