4 stars for great grilled cheese. Minus 1 for getting rid of their pizzas. Plus one for their sunday deal and plus one for their fun atmosphere and staying open late and delivering. I'm not good at the math but that works out to be 5 stars. A Chicago icon that I have been over enjoying since they opened.

Thanks Nick! Glad you have enjoying everything we have to offer... Minus the pizza of course! But on a side note the future of our pizza is still TBD so you just may not have seen the last of it yet! ;) Thanks for your loyalty! Next time you are in ask for Sarah Jean and she will hook you up with one of our V.I.Cheese slap bracelets that will get you 10% off your bill every time you wear it at any location.

First off 5 stars isnt enough. This place should be looked at as holy ground. Are server RON was awesome. The whole staff for that matter. The beer selection is wounderful. The food was fast hot and mind blowing. I got the chili and had a fat kid smile on my face the whole time. The grilled cheese sandwich is something to be Revered and can never be duplicated. If you love good foood a amzaing friendly environment thats clean and has some of the best food in chicago this is a must.

My girlfriend was sick and threw up and ran to the bathroom. The door man opened the door and came into the bathroom. This guy then told us that we had to pay him because she threw up before we were to be kicked out. I said that I hadn't even received the food that I ordered. He kept demanding money from us even though I apologized profusely. Wouldn't go here ever again. The service wasn't only horrible, their actions were illegal.

Delicious and different! I love the idea of having an all-grilled-cheese restaurant! Perhaps there could have been more variety and choices on the menu, but overall I was impressed that the beer menu was more expansive than the food menu. Server was friendly and accomodating and the food came out FAST!

I've been to Cheesie's a few times growing up in Chicago, always liked it. One night my college friends and I decided to go to Cheesie's and I was super excited. Literally said "Hell yeah" and we hopped on the train. When I got there I was immediately carded as soon as I walked in the door, even though I mentioned that I would not be purchasing any alcoholic beverages. Why did he have to see my ID, I don't know. When I went to order my food, the person who took my order seemed in a rush and pretty passive, which I totally get. It was a Friday night and it was busy. So, I ordered my food, went to the table where my friends were sitting and waited. My friends' orders came out pretty fast, so I was hopeful and thought my food was coming out soon after. Boy, was I wrong! Another party of maybe 8 got their food before me and I knew they had ordered after me. I let it slide though. Then another party got their food before me and I was extremely annoyed. I went to the cashier asked him about my food and he said it was coming. Yeah, I knew it was "coming" but it took forever and a half to "come" to my table. When I asked for a refund, the youngin working the register was confused and said they were going to give me "extra food" with the order. Ok, sure... Thanks... So, I waited 45 minutes plus another 15-20 for the "extra food" that I didn't even want but my friends enjoyed. I mean how long does it take to make a grilled cheese for gods sake... The sandwich was mediocre and the fries were kind of cold. I don't get how they were cold though since I practically grew all my leg hair back waiting for my food. The service on a Friday night is questionable... However, I won't let this nightmare of an experience ruin future appearances there. Moral of the story to the employees: Don't forget about your HUNGRY customers. :-(

It can get loud and crowded, but its open late and the grilled cheese sandwiches are so so good. There are lots of cool options like grilled mozzarella with tomato and basil or grilled mexican cheese with chorizo.

Great bar with awesome atmosphere. The Caprese is my all-time favorite. You can tell they use fresh ingredients and it isn't very expensive.

This place is amazingly tasty! I had the Napoleon and it satisfied all my taste buds. Sweet, sour (from the blue cheese), savory... You can't go wrong unless you dislike blue cheese. If you're looking for an above average grilled cheese and don't want to make it yourself, come to Cheesies!
