Fun grilled cheese food truck, with a school bus turned into dining area to fit the theme. Hopping on and off the bus brought back memories.  Gabby with bacon for me and my wife had the Baby Cheesus.  Both happy with our choices. Well worth...More

My husband and I took our niece here for lunch over a weekend trip, and it has amazing sandwiches! I was glad they are not closer to me, as i would eat here way to often.

I had a really delicious grilled cheese sandwich at their food cart. The jalapeno popper one was fabulous. What wasn't great was that I got the end of the bag of chips. But the chips themselves were good :)

Many choices to make for your sandwich. The sandwich was cheesy and you will not be disappointed if you make a stop at the Grilled Cheese Grill food truck. Will definitely come again for another visit. Prices very reasonable.

For a family with young one, eating in a school bus is really fun. The art inside is not that good as it is the work of semi-artist who draw weird scenes as seen in many Portland art. The food is ok, but the fact...More

Our family of five had a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches- all excellent and reasonably priced with the added benefit of eating in an old school bus to the kids' delight!

Yes, they do! They had a fine gluten free bread. This place is simple, but oh so unique! Of all the delicious food we ate in Portland, this meal was the most memorable because it was a blast to the past with a twist!
