All The Cheesy Photos from Cincinnati's Mac & Cheese Throwdown at the American Sign Museum

CityBeat's inaugural Mac & Cheese Throwdown took place last night (Nov. 2) at Camp Washington's American Sign Museum. Local chefs went head-to-head in a melty, cheesy smackdown competition pitting mac-and-cheese dish against mac-and-cheese dish to see whose creation reigned supreme. Participants included Eli's BBQ, Court Street Lobster Bar, The Eagle OTR, Keystone's Mac Shack, MamaBear's Mac and more. After sampling all the mac and cheese, attendees voted on the winner. The mac and cheese hero who took home the coveted People's Choice award and winner's belt was MamaBear's Mac who served up Loaded Baked Potato Mac and Cheese and Jalapeño Popper Mac.
