Best Mac n' Cheese in Edmonton

May 13, 2020

When we think of comfort food, one of the first things that comes to mind is a classic bowl of macaroni and cheese, overflowing with goodness, just like mom used to make. Rich, creamy, and ultra cheesy, mac n’ cheese transcends every season— warming your soul in the winter, and perfectly pairing with a frosty ale in the summer. It is a great base for pretty much any topping, with a few of our favourites being succulent lobster, spicy sausage, BBQ pulled pork, hot jalapeños, crispy bacon, and of course, juicy hot dogs. Add a layer of buttery breadcrumbs and crispy cheese and you’ve got yourself a bowl of sweet, sweet heaven.

Many of the restaurants listed here are continuing to offer curbside pick-up or delivery as they begin to reopen. Be sure to check the individual restaurant's website for updates before you stop by to order or plan to dine-in, and continue following the guidelines put in place to keep everyone safe!

Now that we’ve got mac n’ cheese on your brain, here’s a list of our favourites around the city:

Pip

Pip, little sister restaurant to the always delicious Next Act Pub and MEAT has a tasty mac n' cheese dish. They're confident enough in it that they've gone ahead and called it Macaroni 2.0. That's some well-deserved confidence folks.

MKT

Have Mercy

At Have Mercy you'll find classic macaroni noodles nestled in a creamy cheddar queso sauce with perfectly crisp croutons for an added crunch and pickled jalapeños to round it all out. Choose between andouille sausage, pulled pork or country ham for your protein. Mmmmm.

LUX

Northern Chicken

If you’ve never had the Dorito Mac & Cheese from Northern Chicken, today is the day. Really, what are you waiting for? The cheesiest sauce coats classic macaroni noodles and the whole thing is topped off with a generous layer of crumbled Doritos. Add in their homemade hot sauce for an extra kick.
