Who’s Fast Food Mac & Cheese is the Best?


 Macaroni and Cheese, a staple in many of our childhoods. It was the food we lived off of as kids and will always hold the title as an American Classic. From Kraft to Kentucky Fried Chicken, no matter your preference, it will always be a comfort food. It’s the perfect combination, and is starting to make its comeback in the fast-food industry in recent years. The most recent being Chick-Fil-A and the release of their homemade Macaroni.  KFC has taken their Macaroni and Cheese to new heights by adding Popcorn Chicken to make for a unique take on a classic dish. The real question, which Mac & Cheese is the best?


It’s devastating that many people today often ask, are there any restaurants who serve Mac & Cheese anymore? Numerous fast food restaurants still serve this item, it’s never made a name for itself in the fast food industry. Fries and Hamburgers are more of a concern to people than anything. Even though it’s not the star of many restaurants, it’s still good to know what Mac & Cheese is good, and what isn’t worth trying. Restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A, KFC, and Panera are southern soul food based restaurants that serve mac & cheese to give their establishment more of a southern identity. 


In my opinion, the best Mac n Cheese is Chick-Fil-A. CFA first released their mac & cheese a few weeks ago and has gained a lot of attention since its release. The only things that would make Chick-Fil-A’s mac & cheese better is if they added something to their mac & cheese to set it apart. Most restaurants in the fast food industry don’t have anything specifically different about their Macaroni. Along with their food, the atmosphere, and great customer service makes Chick-Fil-A’s mac & cheese the best. 


There are few fast food restaurants that have a uniqueness to their mac & cheese. One being, soul food restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken, better known as “KFC.” While KFC’s mac & cheese has been on the menu from the dawn of time, they just released their mac & cheese bowls. During the wide-spread debate involving which chicken sandwich is best, KFC had drawn their attention to Mac & Cheese Bowls. These bowls contain Macaroni covered in gooey cheese, topped with popcorn chicken. If you’re looking for a kick, a spicy version available, that’s covered in KFC’s Nashville Hot Sauce. Personally, I haven’t had the opportunity to try the bowl yet, but the regular Mac & Cheese is some of the best I’ve tasted.
