After we dished up our list of the ten best macaroni and cheese dishes in Denver, readers were quick to serve up other favorites. How about Dad & Dude's Breweria Pepperjack and green chile mac? Shanahan's "awesome" mac and cheese? Interstate Kitchen's offering? Then there's this from Candice: 

People, stop with the bread crumbs! Real mac and cheese doesn't need it. It's not required to make it good and creamy. Bread crumbs and add-ins make it a casserole. Also, this list is missing Lou's mac and cheese. Ask for it without the bread crumbs.

And this from Sue:

Thanks but no thanks for the list, Westword. I just started my diet! Where do you suggest I go for low-cal, low-carb  mac and cheese?

Ryan doesn't have a favorite to suggest, but he's offering his services, anyway: 

Westword, I think you need a second opinion. I'll volunteer to try all these places on your dime and report back.

What other places should we try? What's your favorite mac and cheese?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
