Dallas Grilled Cheese Company opened January 19 amid buzz and excitement from SMU students and Dallasites.
The restaurant, which of course prides itself on cheesy sandwiches, is nestled in the heart of the Bishop Arts District.
Its kitschy, rustic-meets-chrome interior ensures its spot as an up-and-coming dinner destination.
Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. is far from strictly a cheddar establishment.
Notable menu offerings include bacon lollis–mini sandwich skewers with bacon, brown sugar, and maple syrup; fried mozzarella sticks; rustic tomato soup; milkshakes and root beer floats, and, as a finale, house-made cheesecake.
In the category of sandwiches, one can enjoy anything from a caprese sandwich heaping with tomatoes and basil, to a sloppy joe or bologna-and-cheese, to a PB&J with fresh jam, peanut butter and sweet cream cheese on toasty bread.
The restaurant also has 23 craft beers on tap.
A commitment to sustainability sets the restaurant apart as well, as many of their straws, cups and such are made of recycled materials.
Dallas Grilled Cheese Company’s Facebook page has gone somewhat viral among SMU students, with many students sharing it to their profiles; the excitement for its opening was palpable.
The page already has 25,000 likes despite only having been open for four days.
Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. will surely become an SMU staple, appealing to fans of nearby Bishop Arts’ Wild Detectives coffee shop and Eno’s Pizza.
