The Beehive Asks: What’s the best grilled cheese in the Valley?

legrilledcheese.jpgApril is National Grilled Cheese Month (there’s even an invitational), so let’s discuss where to find the best grilled cheese sandwich in the Valley. Because, really, is there any better sandwich?

I’ve actually only come across one I think has the wow factor — you know the kind of sandwich you dream about. It’s the Dusty Buns Bistro‘s “Le Grilled Cheese” — made with aged white cheddar and smoked bacon — topping my list. I’m not the only one in LOVE with this gooey sandwich, there are raves and more raves out there.

I’ve also tried Pinot Wine Bar and Bistro’s “Grilled Cheese Royale,” which is made with aged white cheddar, fontina, fresh mozzarella and caramelized onions. It too is pretty delicious.

I haven’t tried these, but I’ve heard the The Big Swirl frozen yogurt shop at Cedar and Shaw avenues features The Big Cheese, a place that sells a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches. And the Five Guys in River Park cooks up some oozing sandwiches, as shown in this KSEE video.

What about you? What grilled cheeses in the Valley make your taste buds do the happy dance?

Definitely Le Grilled Cheese!!!! The richness of the cheese with the saltiness of the bacon, combined with either tomatoes or spinach (depending on the season)… Mmmm, mmmm, good!

Pinot Wine Bar by far has the best Grilled Cheese sandwich! Paired w/ an excellent glass of the French Malbec it’s TDF!

The Yard House has a delish Grilled Cheese, I add bacon because everything is better with bacon and it comes with a cup of Tomato Bisque. This is my second favorite GF sandwich in Fresno. I know it isn’t a local business but I do give credit where credit is due.

Dusty Buns of course is a fave but not #1 in my book.

Dusty Buns is tops for me! I find myself craving it and look forward to the next time I’m eating it. I’m in danger of taking in too much bacon . . .

I was just coming here to comment with the grilled cheese sandwich from Dusty Buns! YUM.

I’m a big fan of cheese(and bacon) and I love me some Dusty Buns Le Grilled Cheese. I’ve also had the Grilled Cheese Royale at Pinot Wine Bar, it was pretty good.
To me, though nothing compares to the comfy-ness of homemade grilled cheese and a bowl of tomato soup on a chilly day. mmmmmm

Thanks for letting me know.I haven’t been there but had heard about it, and I wasn’t aware that it shut down.

I love grilled cheese but can’t handle the calories anymore. I will, however, live vicariously through your article!

We all know what grilled cheese reminds us of when we pull it apart still? Yay!

Love love the new Grilled Chz at Willow and Nees (behind Sonic)

This isnt about your perversion! Mdub please Go get a man if a woman will not do.
