Lunches with Dad – Jacomo Cheesewiches

Hi!  It’s been awhile since i’ve posted a review.  Dad and I have been sidelined with colds and life and I’m pretty sure this was the last new place we tried.

I had seen on Facebook that a friend liked this place and was instantly intrigued.  Its a restaurant whos entire menu is based on grilled cheese sandwiches, Jacomo Cheesewiches.  Their website touts “Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and fries”.

We got there pretty soon after they opened, as we are to do, and there was only one other person there at the time.  We all (Dad, Josh and I) chose different sandwiches to try.

Overall we all liked our sandwiches for the most part.  Dad was a little weirded out that the lettuce and tomato was cooked in the sandwich, therefore a weird texture/temperature, instead of added afterwards.  The biggest turn off for us was the wait.  For there only being 1 person in front of us (with an order just for herself), we waited at least 15-20 minutes for our food.  If the place had been packed I would understand more, but it wasn’t.  To quote Josh “It’s fine for something different, but it’s nothing you couldn’t make yourself. Well priced but the wait was obnoxious.”  I think that about sums it up.  I would try it again, but the wait needs to be a LOT shorter!
