You will blow your diet here. The short rib grilled cheese is the best - I get it with cheddar cheese which some people think is a crime but I like it! If you're heading to the Allston location (versus the truck) take the bus to get here because parking can be a pain. This is a really casual... read more

I daresay you will arrive at Roxy's brick and mortar in a much better mood if you don't have to drive there, because the traffic at that 4 way intersection- is completely nuts , and parking takes a long time to find. But once you're in the door and seated, there are welcoming friendly faces and good music (good LOUD... More

What else to order?? Grilled cheese is perfectly cooked. It gets even better with hot tomato soup. My mouth is watering when I am typing about it! Must try!

My wife and I visited their truck at the Watertown Mall today. My wife ordered the three cheese for herself and her mother. They loved it. I had the rookie melt(cheddar and tomato). I thought it was alright. We also ordered the truffle fries. I can say they were very tasty. We wolfed them down. My indifference aside, we will... More

My family just moved away from Boston, and unfortunately, we didn't discover the Roxy's Brighton truck until one month before we moved! This didn't stop us: we got it four times in three weeks. Hands down the best sandwich on the menu: the Green Meunster. Meunster, guacamole, and bacon are perfection together. We made sure to grab Roxy's when it... More

While visiting my daughter and looking for a lunch place, she told me there was a restaurant that had recently opened specializing in grilled cheese. Then I knew where we would be eating lunch! Even though Roxy's Gourmet Grilled Cheese is at a semi-busy intersection you are greeted with a very relaxed atmosphere inside. You order in the front from... More

Tried Roxy's at the SoWa market today and was not disappointed! I ordered the "green muenster" which has muenster cheese bacon and guac. Normally I don't eat bacon because of the extra greasiness, but it was amazing. definitely check it out! Their lemonades are great also.

Wow, Roxy's just opened in Allston and it's definitely the place to go for a gourmet grilled cheese and some delicious truffle fries! The fries are plentiful, 2 people could definitely share. There are so many choices in grilled cheese sandwiches, that it took us a while to decide. Nice hipster atmosphere added to the enjoyment. We each had 2... More

Not bad for a food truck parked on the side of the road... It actually hit the spot at the time - bacon, avacado, and muenster... Could have used another slice of cheese. Overall, I'd pay $4 again, but not $6

I stopped by this food truck for lunch and had the Mighty Rib Melt. Braised beef with carmelized onions and melted fontina. So very good!
