“A Great 'Lil Dive!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Was recommended to this place by a friend. Couldn't understand what the big deal was since this was a restaurant that "specialized" in macaroni and cheese. Honestly, I was proven wrong! This was absolutely, positively, the absolute best macaroni and cheese I've ever had. I was expecting to see a restaurant, however, this is a true little gym in the pikes market area. If you're up there, you have to make a trip by! This is truly, a great place! You have to try the one with the red peppers.

“Cheese heaven.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Ok I admit I´m a cheese addict, but this place is off the scale in all things cheesy. I had been told by a friend that I had to go here when in Seattle and it was worth it. The best cheese and mac I´ve ever tasted. It´s a big place and was a little crowded for me, but once you see the variety and taste the samples its all worth it. You shouldn´t miss out on this place if in Seattle.

“Some of the best cheese EVER!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great cheese, made on site, you can watch them make it from the windows.

Good place for lunch, Mac and Cheese, and Grilled Cheese are both amazing.

Across the street from the main market building, near Post Alley.

Expect to wait in line, as they get busy very fast in the lunch timeframes.

Smoked Flagship, and the Aged Flagship are both amazing, and are must buys.

“Great Cheese”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We always enjoy getting cheese from Beechers and they have great sandwiches. It can get especially crowded around lunchtime and in the summer though; and there isn't much seating. But still worth grabbing something and walking to the park.

“A must stop and taste”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We have made so many visits to the factory. This is truly the best Mac and Cheese we have ever eaten. We invest in the "squeaky" cheese to take home too while we heartily devour the piping hot gooey goodness of both the original and the Mariachi Mac and Cheese before it can even cool! Wish y'all still carried the chipotle curds too. It is all so very good!!
