Yesterday was National Cheese Fondue Day, and today, my friends, is National Grilled Cheese Day. So throw away that sad salad sitting in your work fridge and celebrate the holiday at one these South Shore joints with an ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwich. You’ll thank me later.

Riva Grill

This is not your grandmother’s grilled cheese sandwich. At Riva Grill, Brie and smoked Gouda cheeses melt alongside Black Forest ham and house-made ginger tomato jam. This goodness is sandwiched between two thick slices of sweet French bread.

Riva Grill is located at 900 Ski Run Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.

Keys Café

Chow down on the Italian-inspired grilled cheese at Keys Café. Swiss cheese, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and homemade pesto are grilled between a ciabatta roll. Yum.

Keys Café is located at 2279 Lake Tahoe Blvd. #2 in South Lake Tahoe.

The Getaway Café

People on Yelp! are freaking out about the grilled cheese at The Getaway Café in Meyers, and for good reason. Not only does is contain a medley of melted cheeses on the inside (American, Cheddar and Monterey Jack), but the Truckee Sourdough Company bread is crusted with Parmesan cheese on the outside. Pro tip: Pair it with a bowl of the homemade soup of the day.

The Getaway Café is located at 3140 U.S. 50 in Meyers.

Gunbarrel Tavern & Eatery

You ready for this? Brie. Arugula. Tomato. Caramelized onions. Balsamic glaze. All this nestled between two crunchy pieces of sourdough bread. Enough said.

Gunbarrel Tavern & Eatery is located at 1001 Heavenly Village Way in South Lake Tahoe.

Red Hut Café

Sometimes there is nothing better than a simple, unadulterated grilled cheese — no frills, just cheese and bread grilled with butter. At Red Hut Café take your pick of cheese — American, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss or Pepper Jack — and bread —white, wheat or sourdough — and you’re good to go.

The Red Hut Café is located at 2723 Lake Tahoe Blvd. and 3660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
