A Restaurant Where Grilled Cheese Is King
Grilled cheese sandwiches are a topic I’m quite fond of… (see here and here). I guess it shouldn’t surprise you that I just grubbed at a place called Grilled Cheese & Co. Catonsville, Maryland is the home base for this grilled cheese destination. While I found the prices to be grossly expensive for what you’re getting, I still left with a smile on my face after trying the Kickin BBQ Chicken (Pepper jack cheese, grilled chicken, diced red onions & sweet BBQ sauce! $7.00).
So I mentioned overpriced: Avoid “The Original”. For $5.00 you get American cheese and white bread… your typical grilled cheese. Nothing wrong with the sandwich at all except for the price. We’re talking maybe 75¢ worth of ingredients for 5 bucks!? The $4.00 cup of Cream of Tomato Basil Soup (with diced tomatoes, shredded Parmesan cheese & croutons) was a ripoff too. Since when does a grilled cheese and tomato soup combo cost $9.00? Outrageous.
Being in a suburb of neighboring Baltimore, get a taste of the area and try the “Crabby Melt” (Melted monterey jack cheese on top of our homemade cheese blend of cheese, crab meat & spices, $7.50).
Such a nice idea to have a place dedicated to my beloved grilled cheese sandwich. While the grubbing was good, the prices were laughable. I’m not so sure a place like this can get repeat customers with absurd prices, and that’s a shame. The food didn’t leave as much as a lasting impression as my bill. 🙁
