Nobody Datz it Better #MacNChzMonday

#MacNChzMonday, Comfort Food, Mac N' Cheese, South Tampa

When it comes to comfort food that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, Datz is always the first place that comes to my mind. As I began to think of all the places that have awesome mac n’ cheese, Datz was at the top of my list.

With several variations of mac n’ cheese yumminess, Datz has taken this classic comfort food and Datzified it. How much do I love their spin on this cheesy classic? Let me count the ways….

1. Mac n’ Cheese Bites

These deep-fried balls of cheesy goodness are stuffed with crispy bacon and jalapeño mac n’ cheese and then paired with sriracha aioli. Um, does it get better than that? Heck no! I hate to use the word “amazeballs” but if the shoe fits……

2. Itty Bitty Mac

Not so itty bitty, this “a la carte” portion is enough to fill me up! Creamy mac n’ cheese with bacon and topped with Goldfish! LOVE IT! I was in this past weekend with my bambinos and they gobbled it up. Now that want me to do this at home. Thanks Datz!

3. Barry C’s Stuffed Meatloaf

Oh no they didn’t! Oh yes they DID! Datz takes an individually-sized, housemade meatloaf and stuffs it with four-cheese bacon & jalapeño mac n’ cheese! HOLY MOLY is it good!  Served with garlic mashed potatoes and peas, it is the true definition of comfort food. Shocking as it may sound, I just had it for the first time this weekend. I could not eat it all, but it made for an awesome reheat the next day. My son REALLY liked it and now is fond of meatloaf. Who woulda thunk it?

This soon to be world-famous dish was featured on the Travel Channel. Just because I love you all so much, I included the segment below.

“The Mac ‘n Cheese at Datz is unlike any Mac ‘n Cheese I’ve tried before. A creative dish, with just the right amount of spice from the jalapeño, this Mac ‘n Cheese just further exemplifies just how unique and wonderful Datz truly is.” -Jennifer Buggica (Mangiamo, Let’s Eat!)

“Datz is a one of a kind dining experience. We always bring our family here when they come into town. One thing I love most about Datz is that it is casual but not too casual and you will never feel out-of-place while dining there. You know their food and drinks will be spot on every time you go there.” -Megan Wood (I Run For Wine)


As you can see, Datz does mac n’ cheese like no other. I can’t wait to taste what they come up with next.

Have a mac n’ cheesy week ya’ll!

    I love Datz, but I don’t think I have ever had mac & cheese. I usually get a sandwich, clearly I need to branch out.
