- Slim's has the best grilled cheese, hands down, and I am picky about my grilled cheeses. They usually have a grilled cheese special of the day and change it up quite a bit. They don't even need to do that though- they had me at gouda. – Tanya T., Yelp
- I love Jamaica, Mon! But since I can't there very often, I opt for Automatic Slim's Tonga Club instead. It's lively, Carribean-chic atmosphere and amazingly creative menu make this a downtown favorite of many locals and tourists alike. – Jolynna M., Yelp
