Saganaki is a badass Greek cheese dish, served aflame straight to your table and accompanied with fresh out the oven pita bread. For the committed cheese enthusiast, maximize your palate with a feta-covered Greek salad or side of spanakopita.

2. Siné Irish Pub and Restaurant: Beer Cheese and Pretzels

These are no laughable bar pretzels. Indeed, Siné’s cheddar dip is housemade with Smithwick’s Ale, creating a hoppy undertone. Served with soft and chewy baked pretzels, this appetizer is truly a match made in heaven.

3. MARTIN’s Food Markets: Ukrop’s Triple Cheese Macaroni and Cheese

Amongst other greats like the decadent Rainbow Cookie and fluffy Whitehouse Roll, Ukrop’s prepared mac-n-cheese may very well be the only reason one would set foot into a Martin’s. And with the recent selling, you may need to stock up your fridge and freezer before these bad boys can only be found on eBay.

4. City Dogs: Cincinnatti Dog

Sweet City Dogs, how you are so often overlooked before the hour of 1AM. After a big night out, any cheese lover’s dream would be a chili and shredded cheese covered hot dog. Bonus points for a side order of cheese fries as well!

5. Pasture: Pimento Cheese and Ritz

Introducing Pasture’s pimento into your life can be dangerous as no other cheese may measure up. The classic combo with Ritz is a menu staple, but the pimento is also featured in rotating lunch and dinner specials.

6. Bottoms Up Pizza: Bread Tracks

These bread tracks seem like a simple appetizer, but the unassuming white sauce’s combination of parmesan, olive oil, basil, pine nuts, and minced garlic atop Bottoms Up’s famous crust will instantly make you a lifelong fan.

7. Can Can Brasserie: Onion Soup Gratinée

The French Onion Soup at Can Can is sincerely delicious… but we know you came for the gratinée.

8. The Cask Cafe: Cheese Plate

Cambozola, Danish blue, smoked gouda, Welsh cheddar, goat brie… the Cask Cafe is truly a dairy haven. Their plates can also be combined with various sausages and sides, but is that really necessary?

9. The Tobacco Company: Spinach and Artichoke Dip

The blend of fontina, mozzarella, cream cheese, and parmesan combined with chopped spinach and artichokes is delicious enough to make you forget your main course.

10. Home Sweet Home: Entire Menu

At a gourmet grilled cheese restaurant, ordering a cheesy delight is truly a toss up. Try the Bountygate – smoke ham, fontina and giardiniera, Hanover tomatoes, and a fried egg – or the Chesapeake – crab dip, spinach, and sharp cheddar – or the Mac and Me – house made mac and cheese with smoked pork barbecue – or take it easy and just order the entire menu.
