Kelly’s looks like a generic dive bar - there are neon signs, cheap drinks, dim lighting, and regulars who might have accidentally glued themselves to the bar stools 20 years ago. But it’s a Pittsburgh classic and serves one of the best bowls of mac and cheese you’ll find while surrounded by vinyl booths. It’s served bubbling-hot and takes a solid 20 minutes to bake, but just have a few more $4 daily cocktails while you wait.
