Roxy’s Grilled Cheese took the classic gooey sandwich to new heights when it opened a food truck in 2011. Today, its truck is joined by four brick-and-mortar locations in Allston, South Boston, Lynnfield, and Central Square.

Customers won’t find the white bread and American cheese version of the well-known sandwich at Roxy’s. Its versions come filled with house-made pimento, Swiss, guacamole, and barbecue braised short rib, delivered between slices of Iggy’s pain de mie. Essentially, Roxy’s combinations are classic enough to satisfy kids, but with enough culinary backbone to excite adults.

Watch as general manager Brian Keith walks through how Roxy’s creates ones of its signatures — the three cheese grilled cheese, made with Vermont cheddar, muenster, and fontina — in the video below (which may take a moment to load). Then recreate it yourself this fall as an after-school dinner.
