American Burger, Mac and Cheese Company, Carmel

Best place to eat on the cheap in 2012: American Burger, Mac and Cheese Company, Carmel

Almost every item on American Burger, Mac and Cheese Company’s low-key menu is a simple-yet-hearty recipe, reminiscent of the home-cooked meals you grew up with. That’s the perfect way to describe this Carmel restaurant’s traditional cheddar mac ‘n cheese (small, $3.50; large, $5.50), with tender pasta smothered in saucy cheese. There are a few other mac options, including a three-cheese sauce and dishes topped with crispy chicken or a seasoned burger, but for something with a little more zing, try the Spicy Mexican with chorizo sausage, jalapeños, and frizzled onions (small, $4.95; large, $6.95). Want to really feel like a kid again? Order a creamy strawberry milkshake (other flavors available, $4.50-$5.50) for an old-fashioned treat.
