To the person who decided to melt cheese between two pieces of bread, we applaud you.

Whether you're a kid or an adult, you have to admit there's something about a grilled cheese that just makes you happy. One of the great things about a grilled cheese sandwich is that you can get it in all types of varieties. From a simple, classic grilled cheese to a dressed up, five cheese, bacon, avocado, whatever-else-you-can-think-of-to-go-on-a-grilled-cheese, you really can't go wrong.

Grilled cheese sandwiches deserve to be celebrated, so I'm here to tell you about a few places where you can stuff your face with all the carbs and calories.


1. Fried Green Tomato Pimento Grilled Cheese at 1910 Public House (Lilburn). This trendy restaurant in Lilburn is known for their homemade pimento cheese. And boy am I happy they decided to stick it on a sandwich with a fried green tomato, pecan smoked bacon and a chipotle aioli. This grilled cheese comes with your choice of side, and will certainly curb your cheese craving.


2. Grilled 5 Cheese Sandwich at Lazy Dog Cafe (Peachtree Corners). Lazy Dog Cafe offers a full menu of lunch, dinner and brunch options. And yes.
