America's Best Comfort Foods

Mac ’n Cheese

The Restaurant: Slows Bar B Q, Detroit

The Skinny: Chef Brian Perrone has been making his sought-after mac ’n cheese since long before this popular Southern-inspired Corktown joint opened. His secret weapon? “My version uses a medium shell for the pasta, cheddar cheese, and a blend of spices that give it a distinct flavor,” he says, adding, “the ratio of pasta to cheesiness is really high.” The dish is by far the best-selling side on the menu. “The stuff elicits all sorts of moans and sighs and gasps,” Perrone claims, “followed closely by a request for the recipe.” —Emma Sloley
