It’s not just a comfort food, you guys. Mac’n’cheese, when made correctly, is an irresistible indulgent treat. Don’t fight the urge. Just order these.

Buffalo Bar, Brisbane

Introducing the Mac Doggy at Buffalo Bar. No, it’s not a new rapper hitting the charts. It’s a hotdog COVERED in mac’n’cheese! DROOL. And there’s more. It’s then crumbed, fried and ready for you to enjoy. Stop by Buffalo Bar on a Wednesday to get a deal of a Mac Doggy, fries and a drink for $20!

Miss Kay’s, Brisbane

Head on over to one of the best burger joints in town! Miss Kay’s Mac Daddy burger is on a whole other level and is perfect for those who love a little bit of everything. You want a beef patty AND mac’n’cheese AND American cheese AND sweet BBQ sauce WITH mayo AND loaded fries?! You got it. Just bring your stretchy pants.

The Defiant Duck, Newstead


If you’re looking for a starter with lots of flavour, The Defiant Duck’s mac’n’cheese croquettes are a no-brainer. Drenched with red slaw and Philadelphia cream cheese, it’ll be hard to stop at one serving! I’m sure you could totally get away with having a few of these as your main. And did I mention it only costs $8?

Bella BBQ Food Truck, Various Locations

Double carbs can be a beautiful thing! The Bella BBQ food truck offers a mac’n’cheese brisket burger with 18-hour slow-smoked Wagyu brisket, covered in a special house rub. Candy bacon is then used to infuse the creamy mac’n’cheese and it’s topped with sweet and sticky BBQ sauce. Delish!
