A sandwich, like a wallet, safely contains its precious contents, fits comfortably into a back pocket, and is rarely found by the police once it's been stolen. Grab a firm hold on sammies with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a grilled-cheese dinner for two at Cheesie's Pub & Grub (a $30.75 value). The dinner includes:
- Three grilled-cheese sandwiches: the mac, the melt, and the caprese (a $5.95 value each)
- One side of seasoned french fries (a $1.95 value)
- One side of mom's potato salad (a $2.95 value)
- Two domestic beers (a $4 value each)
Cheesie's Pub & Grub reinvents classic cheese sandwiches with a menu of innovative gourmet grilled cheeses that have been featured in the RedEye and Time Out Chicago. Embark on today’s ambrosial adventure by biting into one of each of Cheesie’s most popular handhelds: the mac, the melt, and the caprese. The mac slides a heap of homemade, mac 'n' cheese laden with american and Merkts cheese between two slices of texas toast, while the melt's marinated chicken breast and bacon float comfortably in a lake of molten chihuahua and american cheese. Both the melt and the caprese—which piles mozzarella, tomato, and fresh basil onto sourdough slathered with extra virgin olive oil—can dance with tongues while clothed in simple bread or arrayed formally in creamy pesto mayo dipping sauce. Pair portable eats with seasoned french fries and mom's potato salad, washing it all down with one of the pub's domestic beers. Inside Cheesie's, cheddar-colored walls envelope eaters in warmth and comfort while cheese-filled treats inspire tone-deaf taste buds to serenade incisors with John Fogerty lyrics. Cheesie's is open Mon.–Tues., 11 a.m.–midnight; Thurs.–Sat., 11 a.m.–5 a.m.; and Sun. and Wed., 11 a.m.–3 a.m.
Cheesie’s Pub & Grub
At Cheesie’s Pub & Grub, cheese is sacred. A large portion of the menu is devoted to reinventing classic cheese sandwiches, a feat detailed in both the RedEye and Time Out Chicago. Diners can embark on ambrosial adventures by biting into two of Cheesie’s most popular handhelds. The archetypal Classic fuses bacon, tomato, and ham slabs to a duo of american and Merkts cheddar, all cuddled between slices of cheddar texas toast. Alternatively, the Melt's marinated chicken breast and bacon float languidly in a lake of molten chihuahua and american cheeses. To pair with the portable eats, the kitchen doles out baskets of seasoned french fries and dipping reservoirs of homemade soup such as meat chili or tomato basil. Throughout the restaurant, cheddar-colored walls provide a pleasant reminder of childhoods spent on the moon.
