So I heard about this place from an article saying that after trying lots of mac and cheese dishes all over NJ, that the River Grille in Chatham served the best. (for your reference: http://www.nj.com/entertainment/index... sister and I really enjoy mac n cheese so we ventured out to try it. I also read from other reviews that this place has good wings and burgers so we ordered those too.

When we first arrived, it's a bit confusing where to enter because there's the main entrance and a side door. I was afraid that the side door would open into the main dining area and all the guests would stare and i would be embarrassed. :P So, I opted for the main entrance but when we got inside there was no one there to greet us and direct us where to wait/sit. I understand the place is like a hole in the wall and casual so I'm not going to complain about this. I'm just telling you so you know what to expect when you go. Plus, I didn't have a bad experience, I just walked into the restaurant and looked for a spot where we could wait. We were going to sit at the bar to wait but since my sister isn't 21 yet, they did not allow us to wait there.

We got the white truffle mac n cheese, classic wings, and the big boy burger with fries on the side.

The mac n cheese came out hot and the cheese was oozing and plentiful which is good but i didn't like that there was excessive oil and that the sauce was not sticking to the macaroni. I appreciated the flavors (of all the ingredients and i normally am not a huge fan of mushrooms but they made it work here) and the bountiful sauce, but i was not impressed. It was an okay bowl of mac n cheese.

The classic wings came out warm. The flavor was good. I didn't like that the meat did not fall off the bone! But for the most part, the meat was juicy. Above average wings!

The big boy burger was the star of the meal. I got it cooked medium. The burger was so big and delicious! It was difficult to eat it like a lady but who cares? It was the last dish I ordered and I still thought it was the best of all three. The fries were almost perfect. They were hot, had a great crunch on the outside, and still had the fluffy potato texture on the inside.
