It’s the griddle, right? I mean anyone can whip up a grilled cheese at home. But it’s not gonna taste like this! White bread smeared with butter and toasted perfectly, and a grilled slab of ham bivouaced between a generous helping of melted American cheese. I’d consider becoming a fighting Illini just to come here after a football game, or a rough night. Merry Ann’s – required reading in Champaign.
