Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Mac and Cheese

Flaming Hot Cheetos Mac and Cheese




A bombastic mountain of cheesy pasta disks sent from the Gods of snackage paradise with melted cheddar, mozzarella, and jack cheeses swimming through the channels of every noodle.

Crumbled Flaming Hot Cheetos blanket the summit of this indulgent nirvana, and flavorful goodies are available to kick your taste buds up an extra level. Candied cayenne bacon, avocado, mushrooms, caramelized onions, jalapenos, soy chorizo, Andouille sausage, a fried egg, braised short ribs, shrimp, or lump crab are all up for grabs. The caramelized onions definitely won’t steer you wrong as their sweetness puts the perfect balance on this savory dish. If you are really looking to feel the burn, toss on some of their Louisiana hot sauce—just a dab will do ya.

The only problem here is deciphering how to adequately dig in without invoking a Cheeto avalanche.

Mint Julep Drink


Food: If you are hungry for more, try the fried pickles that are served with a creamy chipotle mayo dipping sauce. They also come in a half order in case you are looking to satisfy your guilty conscious.

Drinks: Their Mint Julep is served in somewhat of an innovative snow cone status, and the Vieux Carre is a tasty rye cocktail that packs a punch. Both are definitely worth a try.


The Attic is a Southern-inspired restaurant that is neatly tucked on the corner of Broadway and Newport Avenue in Long Beach. Their charm, Southern hospitality, and well-rounded flavors promise a packed house and patio during all hours of operation. Down home breakfasts, home-style lunches, and stick-to-your-ribs suppers will make the decision of which meal you should visit a tough decision indeed.
