If you have a hankering for mac 'n' cheese, there really is no place like Homeroom. Lines regularly snake outside the classroom-style eatery, which specializes in serving mac 'n' cheese plates with quality ingredients and fair prices — the heartier macs run less than $11. On any given day, patrons can select from a variety of creamy dishes, such as the popular Gilroy Mac, made with gouda and garlic, or the Hawaiian Mac, made with havarti, pineapple, scallions, and bacon. There's even a cheese-less option for vegans, and a huge selection of add-ons for any dish — the fried egg added to the Sriracha Mac is an absolute must-try. Children will love drawing on the restaurant's wall-to-wall chalkboard, while adults will probably find a suitable beer or glass of wine from the Periodic Table of Libations. Be sure to check the restaurant's website before a visit, as seasonal and holiday dishes are often added.
