When looking for the best kind of comfort food, look no further than a heaping helping of macaroni and cheese.

That said, not all Mac n' Cheese is created equally. Sometimes it's too dry, or there's not enough cheese, the macaroni is too hard or worse yet, flimsy.

Luckily there's a place in town that makes Mac n' Cheese that is so good, they only sell it on Sunday.

That's because, Smokehouse Barbecue at 432 West Harrison Avenue in Rockford, is only open Thursday through Sunday.

A phone call with the owner revealed if they have the time and ingredients to make the Mac n' Cheese on the other days they'll do it then too.

Smokehouse Barbecue is the top-rated Mac n' Cheese restaurant in Rockford according to Yelp, saying "The macaroni and cheese are some of the best I've ever had," and "Darn, now I'm hungry again."

If you plan on checking out Smokehouse Barbecue and their Mac n' Cheese, we recommend you call before you make the trek.
