Can someone really overdose from eating too much cheese and carbohydrates in one sitting? Holy lactose intolerance Batman! This place was one crazy experience to have after a long day of drinking and partying after a pub crawl. Thank God it is not anywhere near where I live or I would need my arteries cleaned on a weekly basis. S’MAC does not play around when it comes to mac and cheese!
There is actually a small dine-in restaurant and a take out shop next door. It was packed, but all we had to do was hover like a senior at a casino looking to play their favorite penny slot machine and we snagged a bunch of tables within a few minutes. In my booze fueled ravenous state I looked over the menu of cheese-tactic choices and had to order the cheeseburger mac and cheese. Since there were two of us eating this we went with the mongo size. Boy was that a mistake! A giant portion served in a frying pan was put in front of us that struck fear into my stomach. Yes, it tasted terrific, but was so filling. Creamy cheddar and American cheese, seasoned ground beef, and a nice crispy top. Yummmmmy! We could not finish it all and had the rest bagged to go. Of course, I ate it while on the couch watching TV that night. All of it. By myself. Don’t judge!
There are 12 different mac and cheese options to choose from, and four different portion sizes offered. Nosh, Major Munch, Mongo, and Partay! They also offer a build your own if you want, a sampler pan, and gluten free macaroni. As the restaurant was crowded the whole time we were there you could see how popular this bastion of gooey mac and cheese goodness is in this part of town. Especially dangerous when you have been on a pub crawl all day! Drunk and hungry is not a good way to be when you walk into this place! It’s way too temping!
Also on hand are a decent little selection of beers and wines to help wash down all that cheesy amazingness. They also carry one of my fav sodas, Stewart’s, with a few to choose from. The joint itself is bright, clean, with a funky orange and yellow decor including the seating. You can’t help but smile when in here among all this mac and cheesy cheeriness.
Time to go home now and swallow a bottle of Lactaid pills!
