Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! We scoured the interwebs, researched reviews, and narrowed down FIVE Northwest Houston area restaurants known for serving at least one killer grilled cheese sandwich. We found all kinds of variations too, from classic grilled cheese, to BBQ grilled cheese, to macaroni and cheese grilled cheese. Oh yes. If you can dream it, someone in Houston has put it on a gooey cheese sandwich.
Here are our findings, in no particular order:
Featuring over twenty variations on the grilled cheese sandwich, this place is a good place to find a cheesy sandwich without losing too much green. The YELP reviews are rather brutal, but it seems most of the complaints are about weird things, like a lack of homemade potato chips and diabetic-friendly soda-pop. Plus someone complained that a $10 dinner was pricey. Whatevs. Yelp reviews have to be taken with a grain of salt. They’ve got 4.5 stars on Facebook and over 160 reviews.
