Grilled Cheese Grill Portland, Oregon

While on a trip to Portland on Thanks Giving weekend we were looking for some interesting places to have a really good Gluten Free meal!

On the trip before this one my husband had taken my son to the Grilled Cheese Grill while I was working so I didn't have a chance to try it out with them. I was a bit skeptical about "Grilled Cheese" and Gluten free because a lot of gluten free breads just don't taste right as a grilled cheese sandwich. Some don't Toast up right and some just get mushy but that is not so with the bread they use at the Grilled Cheese Grill.

They use Bob's Red Mill gluten free bread when you request gluten free. It is a minimal charge to add the gluten free bread but it is well worth it!

The Grilled Cheese Grill has a great assortment of sandwiches that you can choose from including the one I posted in the picture here! The "Cheesus Burger" is any grilled cheese and burger lovers dream!

Here is what it says about it on their menu
The Now-Famous Burger Behemoth. We’ve done away with the bun and replaced it with two grilled cheese sandwiches. That’s right, two of them. One on top, another on the bottom. Pickles and American Cheese in one, Grilled Onions and Colby Jack in the other. Lettuce, Tomato, Ketchup, Mustard and 1/3lb Burger in between. You won’t need to eat again for 2 days. Comes with a bag of chips and napkins.
I suggest a Fork and Knife for this sandwich! It is definitely a shareable meal! I shared this with my son and my husband got his own "Thriller"!

Here is what they say about the "Thriller" on their menu

Secret Aardvark Jerk Sauce Marinated Turkey, Colby Jack, Fresh Red Onion and Tomato on Sourdough

He has actually been there three times now and has loved everything he has tried. He says "It is a fun atmosphere with the double decker bus and good food."

There is only street parking available so you might have to look for a spot to park but it is well worth it! On nice days you can eat outside in the picnic area or when it's cold out cozy up in the double decker bus! What fun!
