The first food truck was opened in 2008 and since then it has grown into a business phenomenon bringing in more than 1.2 billion dollars in annual sales. One of the most popular food truck chains was known as The Grilled Cheeserie serving an assortment of decadent grilled cheeses and also offering sides, drinks, and shakes. On Monday, January 6, however, the food truck decided to put its breaks on and settle down for a bit. The Grilled Cheeserie opened up a brick and mortar restaurant located in Hillsboro Village. So, just to make sure it lives up to its expectations, I tried it out.

Walking in and looking around the restaurant, I thought this is very cute but simple with a major hipster vibe lurking around the mostly white interior. I ordered two melts and a tomato soup and began my journey home highly anticipating the meal I was about to enjoy.

On the way home the delicious smell of the grilled cheeses engulfed my car. It was intoxicating in the best way ever. I could hardly wait to get home and chow down on the delicacies.

After microwaving the B&B of Tennessee Melt  (buttermilk cheddar, heritage bacon + seasonal caramelized apple-shallot jam on multigrain) and the Spinach & Artichoke Melt (swish-gruyere blend, marinated artichokes + housemate parmesan spinach dip with garlic and leeks on rosemary garlic bread) and taking those first bites into the delicious sandwiches, I was hooked. They were amazing! I can only imagine how wonderful they would have tasted if eaten fresh instead of reheated thirty minutes later. Dipping the sandwiches into the tomato soup somehow managed to make them even better than they were before.

The Grilled Cheeserie left me feeling happy and full after enjoying their sandwiches. While the food truck will always be the original and the market for it will continue to be in bloom, the store front of the grilled cheese revolution was a great idea.
