Chick-fil-A announced on Monday (Aug. 12) that it is adding mac and cheese as a permanent fixture to menus across the U.S.
The new Mac & Cheese – the first permanent side addition to the menu since 2016 – is a classic macaroni and cheese recipe, featuring a special blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan and Romano. It is baked in restaurant each day.

“Mac & Cheese is the quintessential comfort food, and something we are so excited to offer our guests at Chick-fil-A. We think it’s the perfect pairing with our Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets and our grilled chicken offerings, but it’s also great on its own as a snack,” said Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging. “Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste!”
Mac & Cheese was tested in five markets and passed with flying colors.
“We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” Norris said. “But the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country starting today.”
