As much as I love extravagant meals with ingredients that are impossible to pronounce, sometimes I just like to keep it simple.
Really really simple.
And really, it doesn’t get much simpler than a good ol’ grilled cheese sandwich. So when I heard about Tom & Chee, a place that specializes in only grilled cheese sandwiches, I knew I had to go. It doesn’t get much simpler than that, does it?
It’s out in O’Fallon, and if you know me at all, you know that I rarely – okay, I never – hang out west of highway 270. I’m just more of a city girl, you know?
However, I will travel west for two things: good food and good friends.
Hi Holly! She’s one of my besties for sure. Yeah…I just said besties. And I’m 30 years old. #dontjudgeme
Anyway, we came to Tom and Chee on a pretty busy weeknight. Seeing a decent number of people in the place made me kind of excited!
Oh, and in case you are wondering, Tom & Chee is short for:
Tomato and Cheese! How cute.
I took a good long look at the menu.
So many options!
Even though I wanted to try one of their famous grilled cheese donuts, I settled on the BBQ + Bacon Crunchy Grilled Cheese because of course I did. My love for bacon knows no bounds, y’all.
My food came out pretty quickly!
The BBQ + Bacon is loaded with bacon, american cheese, and BBQ potato chips. Yes! It added a delicious crunch and another layer of fun flavor.
I tried their mac and cheese, as well.
Nothing too special, but it wasn’t too bad, either!
All in all, I was impressed with Tom & Chee. I will definitely go back, and when I do, I’m trying their grilled cheese donut! Get ready.
