    Grilled cheese is the name of the game, and you can get it in about half a dozen styles like the Mighty Macaroni, made with deep-fried macaroni layered with melted cheddar. Read more

    Anything can go between cheese and bread to become a grilled cheese at Melt Bar & Grilled. Try the Godfather: a grilled cheese with a big piece of messy, gooey lasagna in the center. Read more

    The Hungry Hungarian is delicious, but would be better with extra sauce to dip it in! 1 meal here is always enough for two, so I suggest sharing one or you'll have lunch for tomorrow too!
