2. Grilled Cheese Grill 1027 NE Alberta, Portland, OR 97211

The name Grilled Cheese Grill might be a bit gratuitous, like "We get it! This spot serves grilled cheese!", but don't discount this Portland shop's predilection for puns: they do make a mean grilled cheese. We especially like The Gabby: with four local cheeses and a ton of bacon between two hunks of bread, this is the hottest Union since Gabrielle starred in Bad Boys II. Ohhhh!!
