Dallas Grilled Cheese Co.

5319 Mockingbird Lane

I love grilled cheese, so I had to include my favorite grilled cheese sandwich spot. Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. serves an eclectic menu of sandwiches. The Favorite is my favorite with Parmesan-crusted grilled sourdough, American, cheddar and gruyere cheeses, crumbled bacon and Dijon mustard.

Other options include the Grilled Mac ‘N Cheese, Fajita Grilled Cheese, Grilled PB&J, and Buffalo Chicken. Pair with a side of tomato soup and you’ve got an adults version of the classic kid’s comfort food.

Eatzi’s Market & Bakery

3403 Oak Lawn Avenue, 5600 W. Lovers Lane, & 6025 Royal Lane, Suite 208

A European-style market, Eatzi’s puts together some of the best sandwiches. Here, you build your own. They start with bread: baguette, cranberry orange, hoagie roll, sourdough, and sprouted wheat are some of the options. Then you pick your spread, meat or veggies, cheese, and toppings.

It’s fun to just explore the market and try some new things. There’s all sorts of bread to take home, wines, pastries, and a cafe that sells espresso drinks. It’s truly a wonderland for foodies and a great place to grab a sandwich.
