Mac and cheese is an all-American dish with a national fanbase that fast food companies have been wise to cash in on. In 2019, fast-food giant Chick-fil-A joined the bandwagon.
Chick-fil-A executives described it as "the perfect pairing" with its chicken offerings. The pasta is combined with a parmesan, cheddar, and Romano cheese mixture, then baked in-restaurant to ensure it has that necessary “crispy top layer.”
Fans took to Reddit to review the creamy side dish, and it ended up getting pretty mixed reviews. One user called it “phenomenal,” likening it to homemade mac and cheese and specifically praising the brown and crispy cheese, while another went as far to say it “tastes like nickels.”
