Last but certainly not least, House of Mac! How far this black-owned brand has come! I remember visiting this once-concept as a food truck to now a multi-location business! This is the ultimate comfort food spot, known for its visionary twists on macaroni and cheese. Their menu includes a variety of mac & cheese dishes, all made with mouth-watering ingredients, and other various comfort foods. Try the Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese (our favorite!), made with tender chicken and a tangy buffalo sauce. And don’t miss the Philly Cheesesteak Mac & Cheese (also our favorite!), a twist on the classic American sandwich. Confession? They’re all our favorites, go find yours!
