CBD's grilled cheese is definitely one of the more unique ones in town. The TX Shiitake Grilled Cheese is made with gruyere, housemade sauerkraut, and mushroom duxelles for an earthy, nutty take on the classic sandwich. Available only on the lunch menu.

Some might argue that meat in a grilled cheese means it's not a grilled cheese, but semantics aside, The Common Table's version is tasty: roasted pork tenderloin, cheddar, provolone, and parmesan on buttery sourdough, served with a side of marinara for dipping. [Photo: Beer P./Foursquare]

5. Full Circle Tavern

1319 S Lamar St
Dallas, TX 75215
(214) 208-3435

The Midwestern-influenced menu at this Cedars bar is heavy on the cheese: Think fried cheese curds, cheese fries, poutine, and the "Fancified Grilled Cheese": cheddar, goat cheese, and provolone on Texas toast, served with pickles on the side to contrast the richness. Tack on bacon for a buck because hey, why not.

6. Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House

JT's grilled cheese contains more cheese than a human should probably eat in a month, which means it's pretty damn delicious. Gobs of white and yellow cheddar, and goat cheese are served up on toasty, buttery Village Bakery bread, with a side of the thick-cut salsa verde fries for good measure.

Dive bar favorite Lee Harvey's serves up some surprisingly excellent sandwiches to go alon with its strong cocktails and cold canned beer. The jalapeno grilled cheese is built with swiss, jack, and cheddar cheeses on wonderfully toasty, spicy jalapeno bread. It comes with fries, but you should sub the gigantic onion rings for $1.75 extra. (Or a salad for $2.50, if you're some kind of wuss.)

Lucky's is known far and wide for its "Sleaziest, Cheesiest" grilled cheese. Thanks to the diner's recent "farm-to-table" revamp, said sandwich is now made with Dos Lunas and Brazos Valley cheddar cheeses, local sliced tomato, and applewood smoked bacon on nine-grain bread. You should ask to tack on onions, tomatoes, and green chilies if you want it to more closely resemble the OG version. [Photo: Lucky's Cafe/Facebook]
