Subtle differences can turn a run-of-the-mill grilled cheese gourmet. Case in point: this gastropub’s take pairs swiss cheese with gruyère, and is served on fresh sourdough.

Hamilton's Tavern

South Park

The cafe portion of this tavern boasts a long list of grilled cheeses with character, including the Blind Tiger (filled with beer candy in two forms: apples and bacon) and Wimpy’s Revenge (where Wahoo Wheat chipotle raspberry BBQ sauce oozes out of jalapeno cheese bread).

The Tipsy Crow

Gaslamp Quarter

Switch out your usual cheese board with a Specialty Grilled Cheese board. Served with a shot of blue cheese fondue and tomato basil bisque, you’re presented with unique sandwiches like the Perky Lil’ Pepper (filled with cheddar & cream cheese with roasted Anaheim chilis) and the Angry Goat (stuffed with goat cheese, avocado, and cayenne).
