April is National Grilled Cheese Month and this Friday, April 12, is National Grilled Cheese Day. Let's celebrate everyone's favorite ooey gooey sandwich by taking a look at some of the tastiest grilled cheeses you can find in New England.

JUNIOR'S RESTAURANT - This open-faced grilled cheese with crisp bacon and cheddar is one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches around. The steak fries make it even better. JUNIOR'S RESTAURANT is inside of FOXWOODS CASINO in CONNECTICUT. There's also on in Times Square in NYC.
JOHNNY'S LUNCHEONETTE - Their grilled cheese on challah bread is packed full of Vermont cheddar. It comes with a pickle and cole slaw. JOHNNY'S is located in Newton, MA.
THE ROX DINER - "The Ultimate Grilled Cheese" is stuffed with tomato, Vermont cheddar and bacon. It's all nestled in between brioche bread. The Rox Diner has two locations in MA: Newtonville & West Roxbury.
ROXY'S GOURMET GRILLED CHEESE -"The Green Muenster" is made with Vermont Cheddar, bacon and homemade guac. It's one of the many delicious sandwiches that's made this Food Network-featured food truck a favorite in Boston and across the country. You can find Roxy's parked in various locations in Boston and at the SOWA Market every summer.
GRILLED CHEESE NATION - Another Boston food truck. They offer several unique grilled cheeses. I enioy the "In Gouda We Trust" with gouda, caramelized onions and mushrooms. Grilled cheese nation is often parked near the Rose Kennedy Greenway. You can also find it at the SOWA Market on Sundays in the summer.
BLACK BEAR SUGARWORKS FARMSTAND - Just a simple grilled cheese with delicious Vermont cheddar cheese. This small stand is open from May to October at 580 Canal Street in Brattleboro, Vermont.

WHETSTONE STATION - A grilled cheese and bacon like no other. It has a layer of cream cheese which makes it unforgettable. Whetstone Station is in Brattleboro, VT. Search their name for my previous entry about this hot new spot for comfort food and beer.
There are many chain restaurants in New England that serve perfectly good grilled cheeses. Johnny Rockets (Providence Place Mall, Thayer Street, Providence, RI, Mohegan Sun, CT and Freeport, ME to name a few locations) and the new Cheeseboy (Prudential Center, Boston, Providence Place, Milford, CT and South Station are among their locations) offer delicious grilled cheese sandwiches.
