The 8 Best Grilled Cheese in Austin, TX

The Best Grilled Cheese in Austin, TX

In honor of #NationalGrilledCheeseDay (oh yes, that’s a thing) on April 12th, I sought out to find the best grilled cheese in Austin, TX. And while it was a grueling task, I narrowed it down to the 8 best grilled cheese sandwiches in the city! So, choose wisely this National Grilled Cheese Day and celebrate at one of these Austin cheese champs:

Emojis Grilled Cheese

Holy Cow. These grilled cheese are actually unreal and win the title of my favorite for sure. The owner was kind enough to give us a tasting of their Bacon Cheddar, Grilled Chicken and Pesto, a Veggie one, and my personal favorite, the Tomato Basil Pesto. They also do a Sunday Brunch that includes a Jambalaya Grilled Cheese (it’s won awards!!) and a Blackberry Cobbler Grilled Cheese!

Turkey, Havarti, lemon infused arugula and blueberry jam, with a chevre spread, grilled on sourdough… SO GOOD. Their whole menu (which also includes cookie dough eggrolls) is mouthwatering. Another reason to visit here is that 10% of all sales are given to organizations that are fighting against modern-day slavery. Good food, good cause, win-win.

Burro Cheese Kitchen

With sandwiches like the Burning Mac (Sourdough, Mac & Cheese, Cheddar, and Yellowbird Sauce) and the Visa 206 (Sourdough, Cheddar, Gouda, and Balsalmic Apricot Fig) there are no bad choices on the Burro menu.

Toaster Food Truck

They have a tomato soup grilled cheese on their menu. Such a classic pairing: gooey mozzarella, muenster & swiss cheese with a delicious sun-dried tomato “soup” surprise!

The Soup Peddler

In addition to the smoothies and juices the Soup Peddler is known for, they have a pretty darn good classic grilled cheese sandwich too!

Happy Lobster Truck

Lobster + Grilled Cheese. Need I say more?

Holy Roller

Just the name of their sandwich, the “Grilled Cheesus,” cracks me up. And the restaurant has a really cool vibe as well!
