"Tipster Lincoln Barber recommended Sweet Georgia Brown in South Oak Cliff for the "best mac-and-cheese ever (seriously, ever!)." But in the scheme of things at Sweet Georgia Brown, marvelous mac 'n' cheese is only a supporting player. The place is a barbecue, and a ..."   [Read More]

A 3-BBQ meat meal: Polish sausage, ribs (hacked in half), and chopped brisket accompanied by collard greens and macaroni and cheese. There was no room in the Styro plate for broccoli casserole, so that came in a separate cup. Note the relative size of the silverware. This is one humongous meal.

It was an unqualified recommendation of the mac & cheese that drew me to Sweet Georgia Brown. I was not disappointed with this supremely hearty version. Unfortunately, the picture does not show all the good chewy edges that came with the softer, custard-like middle.

When I asked for broccoli casserole after also ordering mac & cheese, the man behind the counter said, ''cheese upon cheese?'' I probably should have paid attention and ordered fried okra, black-eyed peas or broccoli and rice. This really was a cheese overload.

The building that houses Sweet Georgia Brown appears once to have been some sort of fast food franchise, complete with drive-through service (at the left of the photo). Today it is a one-of-a-kind destination restaurant in Dallas's South Oak Cliff neighborhood.
