Time Out says

"Do you like grilled cheese? Do you also like macaroni and cheese?" Answer affirmatively to both of these questions, and the woman behind the counter of this divey bar where grilled cheese—and only grilled cheese—is served will conclude that you will like the Mac: mac and cheese between two pieces of Texas toast. It's a mess of a sandwich, just like all the others, which come topped with less extreme ingredients, such as chicken breast or ham. And yes, the combination of Merkts cheddar, American cheese, elbow noodles and the cutest little cup of spicy tomato soup is very hard not to like. Stumble into Cheesie's blitzed from next-door Berlin, and it might just be love.

Huge fan of Cheesies except when it is super crowded. The food is always great and perfect for a late night bite or just a dinner any night of the week. The first sandwich I tried was The Mac and have been going back and getting it consistently. Another favorite is The Caprese. Best tots in town for sure. Great place to come with friends and the bar staff are usually on point, too. 


YES, please. When you're in need of just a bit (or a lot) of comfort food, Cheesie's is where it's at. Sometimes you can also find their food truck at Daley Plaza, too, so for workers in the Loop, it's ideal. Get the tator tots!
