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. Now, you can find a storefront inside Optimist Hall. Go for the Lil' Cheesy with a side of the tomato soup for a heaping portion of delicious nostalgia.

First bite stole my entire life.. my babies too. Ima big foodie hes silent foodie. The food is so fresh fries are so crispy, well seasoned yet soft, and the White wine slushy is so strong but tasty perfect combination of food. Cant believe it was a grilled ! Truly a hidden gem Will be back SOON.
Papi Queso is an exceptional place to get a sandwich. I'm not usually much for buying sandwiches that aren't burgers, but these are special grilled cheeses. My mother eats a ton of grilled cheeses and loved the classic Little Cheesy. I ate the Pig Mac with pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. Fries were excellent. I just wish they had fountain drinks. Bottled sodas or water is not always what I want. Such drinks are usually overpriced. Service was very friendly. This is another great food stall at Optimist Hall.
Every place in Optimist Hall looked amazing but this place is something special. Friendly staff and owner. My BF had the Pig Mac and I had the mushroom. The mushroom grilled cheese was so phenomenal! All the right flavors blended together between perfectly toasted bread.
Best grilled cheese Ive ever had. I had the Mushroom with Gruyre and truffle sauce. My husband had the buffalo chicken grilled cheese. Ill be thinking of this grilled cheese in my dreams awesome end to our date night.
Incredibly friendly service. The food was delicious. I got the Texas cheese steak grilled cheese. It was wonderful. I would recommend it. The fries were good but on the salty side. Their jalapeo ranch was good but the portion for 50 cents seemed small. I would definitely come again.
