April is National Grilled Cheese Month, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
I asked NBC4 viewers what restaurants serve the best grilled cheese sandwiches, and here’s what they said:
Where: 840 N. High St., Columbus
4206 Worth Ave., Columbus
Ohio-based Melt Bar and Grilled is the big cheese when it comes to grilled cheese. Chef Matt Fish describes the menu offerings as comfort food, all dressed up,” and that’s exactly what you get. They offer six different gourmet takes on the grilled cheese sandwich, ranging from the simple Kindergarten (fresh baked bread with your choice of cheese), to the elaborate Cowabunga TMNT (deep-fried real cheese pizza rolls, rich basil marinara, basil pesto, herb cream cheese, and provolone and Romano cheeses).
Where: 697 N. 4th St., Columbus
Located in the landmark Wonder Bread building, City Tavern is one of the best places in Columbus for comfort food period, so it’s no surprise viewers love the grilled cheese. Their Wonder Bread Grilled Cheese is a three-tier classic grilled cheese, and it pairs perfectly with a cup of tomato bisque.

Timmy’s Meltdown bills itself as “Purveyors of Fine Grilled Cheese, Great Soups & Anarchy,” and they definitely deliver on those fronts. The food truck offers eight grilled cheese sandwiches, including the Basic, Eggzellent, Blue Buffalo, Empire Builder, Mush Cluck, Chef’s Choice and the Build-Your-Own.
Where: 2250 E. Main St., Bexley
If you’re looking for a grilled cheese sandwich that’s a step above a slice of American and some generic bread but don’t want an overly complex sandwich, check out the Market District Kitchen and Bar in Bexley. Their grilled cheese is made with Havarti, gouda, smokehouse bacon, tomato and sourdough bread and served with tomato basil soup.
Where: 21190 State Route 374, Logan
If the hankering for a grilled cheese hits you while you’re in the Hocking Hills area, be sure to stop by Kindred Spirits at the Inn at Cedar Falls. Their Grilled 4 Cheese Sandwich is made with cheddar, smoked gouda, pepper Jack and American cheese and is served on whole wheat bread.
