Get Your Mac n’ Cheese On at EATS! #MacNChzMonday

#MacNChzMonday, Eat Local, Mac N' Cheese, South Tampa

We all have that special place we like to frequent and for me that place is EATS! American Grill in South Tampa. Now, I must start by saying that I work there, and with that being said, I still enjoying going there on my days off to either dine with my kids or meet a friend for a drink. The staff and customers of EATS! have become like family to me and I have enjoyed being a part of this wonderful place. As a bartender, I not only get to make drinks, I get to serve some pretty darn tasty food to my customers. One of the most popular items is mac-n-cheese.

EATS! Homemade Mac-N-Cheese with peppered bacon topping is so delicious that many refer to it as “crackeroni-n-cheese.” If you like it with a little kick, you can add fresh jalapeño. According to loyal customer, The Juanster, “EATS! mac-n-cheese is so delicious that it makes a grown man crave it like a pregnant woman!” Always known for his humor, The Juanster enjoys the mac-n-cheese on a regular basis. Offered as a side with a small up-charge, the mac-n-cheese is a meal in itself.


Homemade Mac-N-Cheese

I am very proud of one of the newest menu items at EATS! which is the Rib and Mac Sandwich. This was my contribution to the menu after having something similar during a trip to Los Angeles.  Comfort food at its best, this baby is a savory blend of  pulled rib meat, homemade mac-n-cheese and red onion smothered between two pieces of of piping hot Texas Toast. If you really want to indulge, you can add bacon for the ultimate feast. I invited friend and fellow blogger, Kerry from Snark & Pepper (check out her blog, it rocks!) to come in and try this masterpiece. Needless to say, she loved it. When asked how she liked the sandwich, she replied:  “Like a true fat kid, I was drawn to this ooey gooey sandwich combining 3 American classics: mac and cheese, rib meat, and Texas toast. This is truly a “once every 6 months” kind of splurge. It’s best to attack this behemoth with a fork and knife, and save half for another meal (I might have enjoyed my leftovers for breakfast!).” I could not have said it better myself. 🙂

    I’m a sucker for anything combining several different comfort foods. And I didn’t realize this sandwich was born out of your suggestion…excellent addition to the menu 🙂
