Did you know that today is National Grilled Cheese Day? Not only does one of America’s favorite comfort foods have its own celebratory day, April is National Grilled Cheese Month!

We here at Metrolink love a grilled cheese sandwich as much as the next person, but we love that there are restaurants specializing in these ooey, gooey delicacies right near some of our stations!

Here are seven places you can celebrate today for National Grilled Cheese Day, this month for National Grilled Cheese Month or anytime because these sandwiches are always a great idea.

Grater Grilled Cheese is nearby the Irvine Metrolink Station and is the only location in Orange County.
