It's hard to beat a classic grilled cheese, and Papi Queso has mastered the art of perfectly toasted bread and expertly melted cheese. A staple in Charlotte since 2012, Papi Queso started off as food truck making frequent appearances to Food Truck Friday. Now, you can find their storefront inside Optimist Hall. Go for the Lil' Cheesy with a side of their tomato soup for a heaping portion of delicious nostalgia.

Damn what a great sandwich!!! I got the Bacon Jalapeno and added caramelized onions( bacon,jalapenos, cheese curds pepper jelly) best grilled cheese I've ever had. I will definitely be back!!!! They also make their own pickles where were delicious as well....

This is by far the BEST Adult grill cheese that Ive had. It is made to perfection!!! My favorite is the Pig MAC add Bacon...You have to add the Bacon to top it off. The Sea Salt Rosemary Fries are a hit as well. Id highly Recommend Papi Quesos

It's good grilled cheese sandwiches and the variants going into the melt territory. The bread was kind of a let down after having such good filling ingredients and cheese. Have had much better grilled cheeses from food trucks where they use well made fresh (day of) sourdough and such. The prices are also a bit high and make these not quite worth the price. The plain grilled cheese was $6.50 and definitely didn't feel like it lived up to that price.

The Pig Mac was out of this world good, my husband wouldn't even give me a bite! For me, the tomato soup was too cheesy and I wanted more tomato flavor. The rosemary fries were good but need a little salt. Will definitely come back!
