Quick, delicious, interesting

We were just passing thru Portland on vacation. We wanted a fairly quick lunch with a kind of 'Portland style'. I found this sandwich place and we parked in the street next to it (quite a bit of free parking along the street). Very cool sandwich place with several options for what you want.

Heard about this in the Food Network...and decided to try it out. Went to the food truck downtown Portland location. Long line when we got there...my daughter ranks it at the top of her grilled cheese list! She got the preschooler which cut the crusts off for her. I got the grilled cheese with pesto. I didnr think it was... More

I love eating here. It's fun and there is something for all ages to enjoy. I love the tomato soup, which was full of vegetables. The Grilled Cheesus is very fun, with a burger in the grilled cheese. A great atmosphere and tasty lunch or dinner.

Very fun little dive to have a late night snack, make sure to visit the bus and take in the mural. I got the Huevos and the hubby got the cheesus- both were superb.

Stopped here for a bite with the family and it didn't disappoint. Lots of cheesy goodness, we all had a different take on the old fashioned grilled cheese. Wife had Brie, daughter had bltgc, and I had the shocker-hot peppers with my own variety of cheese-Swiss, cheddar and provolone. Are our meal in a school bus. Great sandwiches in a... More

Yep, you get to sit on a school bus or outside on a great sunny day--which it wasn't for us. This is not your "normal" grill, infact, I may have never have come had I seen the joint, but wow, if you like cheese--this is the place to come for an "adult" version of grilled cheese. Think out of the... More

This was an interesting meal to try but I liked it! Really juicy and melting in your mouth. It was great! The chips on the side was great too.

It's everything you could want for a grilled cheese. I got the The Gabby (Four Cheeses on Portland French Bakery White Bread. Tillamook Cheddar,Swiss, Mozzarella, and Colby Jack Cheese) with Bacon. It came with pepper crinkle chips. It was exactly what I needed on a drizzly cold Portland day. YUM. Your companions want something else? No fear, there are a... More

There are 3 locations now and a mobile GCG for parties or corporate events. The Alberta site is my favorite since the parking is relatively easy there. My new fav is the Moondog - tastes like a grilled cheese pizza! The tomato soup is so good and great for a cold winter day! There is a refurbished school bus for... More

The Grilled Cheese Grill is pretty much a small family of food trucks out of which the grilled cheese truck one is the most famous. There is a huge variety of sandwiches to choose from, even for a vegetarian. Most cost about 6- 8 $, if I remember correctly and are pretty well done. The neighboring truck has some decent... More
