The Southern Mac & Cheese Store/Truck

(November 3, 2011 & December 12, 2011)
60 E. Lake St., Chicago, IL 60601
The Southern Mac & Cheese Store on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
Looking to try "grown-up" Mac & Cheese... then definitely try it here!  With so many different mix-ins... they have to have a combination that suits your taste!  Follow the truck on twitter to get the heads up!

What I Ate:

Duck City Gumbo Mac & Cheese

An amazing creation that they carried on their truck!  It had a good amount of meat (both Duck and Andouille Sausage), some sautéed onions, pepper jack cheese, and a nice breadcrumb crust.  I liked this Mac & Cheese because it wasn't too cheese and too creamy.  It had a good balance between the meat, spices, noodles, and cheese... It was definitely worth the several block journey in the middle of winter!

Sun Dried Tomato and Gouda Mac & Cheese

This was one of their vegetarian friendly options for the day.  It was definitely good, but it was extremely cheese flavored without being too creamy.  (kind of weird). I did enjoy the sun dried tomatoes... Glad they offer it, just not my favorite.

The DOs/DON'Ts
- Do follow them on Twitter... they have a food truck and set up in different locations every day.  Also, they offer specials on twitter!  (@thesouthernmac)

- I have heard to NOT get the plain american style mac & cheese with the hot dog pieces... Everyone I've talked to just didn't like it... so I don't want anyone to be disappointed!

How far would I walk for this food?
