Armsby Abbey’s Mac and Cheese Named Best in Massachusetts

by | Oct 22, 2019 | Entertainment, Dining, Headlines

The best macaroni and cheese in Massachusetts can be found right here in Worcester.

At least that’s how Yelp reviewers see it. 

According to a new list released on Sunday, Oct. 20, Armsby Abbey’s mac and cheese is the best in the state.

The list – Here’s The Best Mac and Cheese in Every State, According to Yelp – was compiled by online news and entertainment site, Buzzfeed. 

Buzzfeed quotes Yelp reviewer Diana N. who says, “I love this restaurant. I went to school nearby and loved coming here. Anything you get at Armsby is amazing, whether it’s the burger, cheese plate, mac and cheese, or cocktails/ beer. I got the mac and cheese this time around. What’s great is that the mac and cheese is always slightly different, since they use different cheeses depending on their rotating cheese options. I added spicy jalapeños on the side, (they were extremely spicy since they were fried), but it was oh, so good. The mac and cheese is topped with crusty bread and cheese, and is broiled to a lovely crisp.” 

Buzzfeed recommends making a reservation at Armsby Abbey “…as it can be quite busy.”

Armsby Abbey’s mac and cheese — made from assorted Farmstead cheeses, IPA, and rustic breadcrumbs —  goes for $13 and customers can added roasted jalapenos, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms, bacon, or smokey blue cheese for an additional charge.
