    The OG classic is the best move, others take away from what is already great

    Try the lobster Mac and the cheeseburger Mac. Ask for ketchup on the side if you need it.

    A little bit pricey, but very much delicious. If you're just trying to pick up lunch, I would definitely recommend calling ahead, you'll be waiting 15-20 minutes either way.

    a bit pricey for a lunch spot but otherwise, really high quality Mac & Cheese. Chicken Diablo one had this half inch layer of melted cheese on top. Could have used some more chicken in there though.

    For every item on the menu, the small is less expensive per ounce than the large. Odd pricing, but tasty mac and cheese.

    Not good. Cheeseburger Mac flavorless. Try S'Mac for the same idea, but tastier.

    Very slow. And when you call in for a pick up order, show up, pay, they forget about you letting your food sit. Thanks for nothing.

    The mush Mac and cheese tastes like heaven. When I order Mac and cheese, it's usually heavy, but this was light and creamy with perfect ant of truffle oil. Can't wait to go back!!!

    BEST MAC IN NYC! Pick up an order to go or dine in at one of their limited and small tables. You can also dine at Delicatessen next door and order the mac from there since they share a kitchen.

    Whoever invented this is a genius. Basically a small mac and cheese bar in the heart of SoHo, best mac and cheese for $6 only

    You want to get the Mayan Chipotle Chicken Mac & Cheese. And you want a medium for a filling meal, a small if you're not very hungry, or a large, for 2 people looking to keep portions small.

    Not actually open until 1 a.m., closes closer to midnight, and the staff can be really pushy and rude later in the evening. Still, decent mac 'n cheese.
