Talk about retro.  This place operates out of a 1940s Valentine diner.  It boasts comfort food with a southern flair.

Address: 100 E. Camelback Rd. Phoenix


3. GRAZ Kitchen Fresh
Its grilled cheese is so special, it even has a special name, GRAZ Grilled Cheese.  Forget your basics.  This sandwich has pesto, avocado and spinach on it, stuck together with mozzarella cheese.

4. Citizen Public House
Who puts mashed potatoes on a grilled cheese?  Citizen Public House according to one Yelp reviewer.  And who would think since an eclectic place would have a top-rated grilled cheese sandwich?
Address: 7111 E. 5th Ave. Scottsdale


5. Sammiches
With a name like Sammiches, this place better have a good American classic like a grilled cheese.  One commenter on Yelp said, "I don't know how the owner did it, but he made THE BEST grilled cheese sandwich."
