Like bad comedians, grilled-cheese sandwiches are cheesy, guilty pleasures that are more enjoyable when they’re covered in tomatoes. Yuck it up while enjoying a hearty meal with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of food and drinks at Chedd's Gourmet Grilled Cheese in The Triangle.
Chedd's turns childhood comfort cuisine on its head by preparing zesty, uncommon interpretations of that tasty old stalwart, the grilled cheese. Eats injected with Wisconsin cheese bedeck the varied menu, which offers gourmet melts ($6.30) such as the Heartburn (horseradish cheddar, pastrami, onion, sauerkraut, and spicy mustard on pumpernickel) and Fish and Peppers (chipotle cheddar, tuna, banana pepper, jalapeno, mayonnaise, and relish on rye). Aspiring dairy draftsmen can sketch their own custom grilled-cheese sandwich ($4.95) before selecting from an architectural alphabet of cheeses (asiago, fontina, extra-sharp cheddar, and more), breads (focaccia, sourdough, white, and more), vegetables ($.99 each), and meats ($1.25 each). Cheddar aficionados can dine amid the sleek, inviting confines while pairing gooey delights with soups, shakes, sides, and brats that help reenergize diners after a long morning of fruitlessly attempting to milk the neighbor’s cows with a butter churner.
- Chedd's is one of my go-to restaurants here in Austin… my in-town friends love this place: it's never hard to get a group to go. It's the one restaurant that my friends from out-of-town each insist on visiting for brunch. – Jeff D., Yelp
- Delicious find! Ran across this restaurant at random in the triangle at lunch on a weekday. Place was busy but line moved quickly. Ordered the 'French Kiss' and I'm still craving it. Great quality cheese and bread. – EskiTex, Urbanspoon
