Where to go: I Heart Mac and Cheese
Address: 637 E. Ind. 32., Westfield
What to get: All-American Bacon Cheeseburger
Anna’s take: I Heart Mac and Cheese has been a pretty popular conversation topic since its recent opening in Westfield. When I visited, I tried the All-American Bacon Cheeseburger mac and cheese ($8.95) with ground beef, bacon, American cheese, pickles and mac and cheese. It was a hearty portion, and I really like that I Heart Mac and Cheese makes the calorie count easily visible. I also tried the Best of Both Worlds ($11.95), which is a baked mac and cheese sandwich with slow-cooked short rib, white cheddar cheese, American cheese and barbecue sauce. It came with a side of 10 tater tots with a tomato soup dipper, which was phenomenal.
I Heart Mac and Cheese is set up similarly to a Chipotle or Subway, whereby diners work their way through the order line. It’s a very clean restaurant, and all the employees seemed eager to help. I have a feeling it’ll become quite the popular place with Grand Park right up the road.
