From the outside, this brick-and-mortar outpost of the Southern Mac food truck looks as tiny as the version on wheels. But venture inside and you'll find a good amount of seating and more than a dozen varieties of macaroni and cheese. The menu includes a surprisingly good salad (mesclun with apples and pistachios) and a mess of a "stuffed grilled cheese" sandwich (pimiento cheese haphazardly injected into one huge slice of toasted bread). But our favorite thing here is the Mexican chorizo mac and cheese, every bite of which is spicy, gooey and loaded with flavor. In other words, it's the kind of meal you could build a business around.
