I, like many other people, love grilled cheeses. They remind me of childhood. Which is why Cheeseboy is such a great concept in cheap, delicious food. Have I mentioned I like cheap delicious food?
I’m really glad one of these places opened up in the Pru, which is closer to my house than the other location in South Station. I tend to be pretty lazy. Anyways, I digress.
Lets talk about the food: I decided on the bacon pesto sandwich with spinach and Swiss cheese inside (I’ve always been a sucker for the Swiss). It was melty and delicious, and that bacon was perfect. The crust was perfectly crunchy and buttery, a major thing for grilled cheese fanatics such as myself.
I love that tomato soup is always an option as well, but I was not as in love with the soup. ‘ Twas a little on the watery side, but the sandwich made up for it and the flavor of the soup was still nice.
The meal also came with a drink and chips and I spent about $8. You can’t beat that. Although being inside the Pru makes it more likely to spend all the money I saved on food on clothing and tea from Teavana, but I won’t hold it against them. The stand is also right next to the exit for outside, just begging for customers to eat their grilled cheeses Al fresco. Pretty fancy for $8.
