When you picture comfort food, one of the first things you think of is a grilled cheese sandwich. It's one of the ultimate comfort foods that transports you back to being a kid.

When I was a kid, my mom always made grilled cheese and tomato soup. Pretty soon, I couldn't have one without the other. We used to have it for school lunches as well. Even though I'm an adult now, you never outgrow a great grilled cheese sandwich.

Sometimes you're out and about, and simply do not have the time to go home and make one yourself. Luckily, there are splendid options for a grilled cheese sandwich here in Western New York and the City of Buffalo.

One of the cool advantages of getting a grilled cheese sandwich at one of these places is they might significantly upgrade the grilled cheese.

They use more than one type of cheese, perhaps. They also could use a bread such as sourdough or rye, with things like grilled onions, ham, bacon or tomato slices.
