Happy National Mac & Cheese Day!

Today is one of my favorite food holidays, because it's all about one of my favorite go-to comfort foods. You can probably figure this out just by looking at me, but mac and cheese is a staple of my diet.

When it comes to mac & cheese, I'm not too picky. I'll eat it from a box, I'll eat the frozen kind, I'll eat it baked, I'll eat it deep-fried... anyway you want to serve it is fine with me! I do have my favorites, though, especially here in Eastern Iowa.

In honor of today's holiday, I put together a list of my top five favorite restaurants to order mac & cheese here in the Corridor. The list is in no particular order, except for number one. That actually is my number one favorite! Without further ado, here are my picks:
