Rollout of mac & cheese at Chick-fil-A continues: Guests at Truett’s Chick-fil-A on Shorter Avenue have been ahead of the curve. Mac & Cheese has been available for a bit but other restaurants in the nation’s no. 3 fast-food restaurant system are adding it as a permanent menu option. It will debut at the Mount Berry Mall location later this week, says Greg Major. The official word from corporate:

The new Mac & Cheese – the first permanent side addition to the menu since 2016 –  is a classic macaroni and cheese recipe, featuring a special blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan and Romano. It is baked in restaurant each day.

“Mac & Cheese is the quintessential comfort food, and something we are so excited to offer our guests at Chick-fil-A. We think it’s the perfect pairing with our Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets and our grilled chicken offerings, but it’s also great on its own as a snack,” said Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging. “Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste!”

Mac & Cheese was tested in five markets and passed with flying colors. “We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” said Norris, “but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country starting today.”


Celebrate college football’s return with a community cookout shrimp boil: That’s the plan at Rome City Brewing Co. at 333 Broad St. over Labor Day weekend. That Saturday, Aug. 31, beginning at 4 p.m., take part in the shrimp boil for $12 per person (open to all ages). The shrimp boil follows a hugely successful crawfish boil earlier this summer in front on of the brewery. Order tickets here. Which RCBC craft brew pairs best with shrimp?
