Has no one in Portland heard of safe food handling? The sandwich was very good, but I had to suppress the grossness of watching the staff handle money, and without washing their hands or gloving up, handle our food. Bare handed. In my state, they...More

The Grilled Cheese Grill is in a very neat area of Portland. There are lots of restaurants to choose from, but I am so glad I chose this one. It is a unique idea to serve gourmet grilled cheese out of an old Airstream trailer....More

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!
