Yes, Fuel's food truck is back out-and-about in the city! How grand. You can sometimes get avocado and bacon added to this baby.

Fatboy From Uncle Lou's Fried Chicken

I know it seems strange to go to a fried chicken joint and get a sandwich like this—but listen, you can also get fried chicken in addition to the Fatboy because no one's stopping you. It's three pieces of Texas toast layered with four slices of cheese, plus turkey or ham.

Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwich from Hammer & Ale

Yes, Hammer & Ale has food. Yes, it's underrated. Yes, several menu items involve cheese including this uber-melty, wonderfully gooey pimento cheese grilled cheese. Photo by Nic Harris, used with permission.

Deluxe Grilled Cheese from Bardog

This one has a bunch of meat on it, so it pushes the boundaries of the definition of a grilled cheese...discuss amongst yourselves!

Basically any of them from Say Cheese food truck, paired with tomato soup, of course.

Obviously, Say Cheese knows what's up when it comes to grilled cheese sandwiches in Memphis. Find this local food truck and find happiness. Pictured here is the classic, but you can go for pepperoni, buffalo chicken or any number of variations.

Lobster Grilled Cheese From Cousins Maine Lobster

If you want to seriously level up your grilled cheese, throw some lobster on there! That's what the locally-owned edition of the Cousins Maine Lobster food truck does.

Grilled cheese from by the brewery


This downtown cafe that's just across from the Tennessee Brewery is crushing it food-wise, from their classic grilled cheese to the occasionally available brisket grilled cheese, I highly recommend you check these guys out for breakfast or lunch.

River Oaks has a DIVINE beef short rib grilled cheese. I ask them to add a slice of tomato before it goes in the panini press. YUMMY!
