Grilled cheese sandwiches are a classic comfort food that people of all ages know and love. While the traditional grilled cheese is classic and delicious, we at Grilled Cheese Society want to bring something a little different to Orange County. With so many amazing food and entertainment options, we know we have to step it up to grab your attention. 

We handcraft our grilled cheese sandwiches with the freshest ingredients and the boldest flavor combinations to provide amazing food to Orange County locals and visitors. Whether you call Orange County home, or you’re just passing through, you can count on Grilled Cheese Society to deliver every single time. 

Who We Are

Grilled Cheese Society is a bold new restaurant concept developed by Nextbite brands. We operate out of a cloud kitchen, meaning we don’t have a dine-in restaurant. Our food is available via delivery, directly to your door. 

The theme of Grilled Cheese Society is inspired by 1920’s America, also known as the Roaring ’20s. It’s no secret that the 2020s are off to a rough start, and we wanted to bring our customers back to a simpler era when flappers and jazz music reigned supreme. 

Our mission is to bring delicious food and amazing service to the people of Orange County, and we hope you’ll give us the chance to impress you.

Why We Love Orange County

When choosing locations for our restaurants, we pick spots with access to great ingredients, and amazing communities we want to serve. This makes calling Orange County our home a no-brainer. 

One of the reasons we love Orange County is because of the amazing food scene, and the access to fresh ingredients. Southern California is home to people that come from cultures all around the world, making the food scene here diverse and exciting. When walking down the street in Orange County, it’s not unusual to pass a great Mexican restaurant, right next to an amazing Vietnamese place, right next to a fantastic French bistro. We love to get inspired by these multicultural flavors and cuisines.

Orange County also has a long history of producing fresh produce and seafood. Did you know that Orange County was once the largest agricultural growth region in the United States? To this day, so many fresh fruits and vegetables are grown there. The O.C.’s proximity to the ocean also allows us to source amazing, fresh seafood, like the clams in our clam chowder. 

Orange County locals have extremely fast-paced lifestyles and busy schedules. Over 3 million people call this place home, and our diverse population is made up of people of all races, religions, and social classes. Whether you’re one of the celebrities that calls Orange County home, a professional surfer who wants to live close to the beach, a student, a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, or any other profession, you can count on Grilled Cheese Society for some amazing comfort food at the end of a long day. 

We know Orange County isn’t like what you see on TV. It’s a rich community full of life, culture, and diversity. We love serving the people of OC, and we are proud to call it our home (and add a little delicious grilled cheese to the mix!).

Why We Love Grilled Cheese

Before developing our restaurant concept, we wanted to figure out the best possible food to bring to your community. We wanted to pick something versatile, comforting, and something that travels well that can be delivered hot and fresh to your door. 

Grilled cheese sandwiches actually have a rich history that not many people know about. Grilled cheese sandwiches have roots in French culture and are a derivation of the croque monsieur, a grilled sandwich made with ham and cheese.

American grilled cheese sandwiches came about in the early 1900’s, and were a product of two recent inventions: the bread slicer, invented by Otto Frederick Rohwedder in the 1920s, and processed cheese, invented by James L. Kraft in the 1910s. So, it really rings true when we say that our grilled cheeses are the best thing since sliced bread.

These two inventions made cheese and sliced white bread readily available and affordable to American households, and thus, the grilled cheese sandwich was born. The actual term “grilled cheese” didn’t appear on print until the 1960s, but by that point toasted cheese sandwiches were beloved by Americans of all ages. 

Today, grilled cheese sandwiches are a staple for college students, mothers of young kids, and anybody who wants a quick and easy comfort meal. But we saw that grilled cheeses had more potential. We wanted to take this simple concept and reinvent it. Our grilled cheeses are flavorful, exciting, and delicious, made with fresh ingredients and delivered right to your door.

Our Menu

When designing our menu, we wanted to make sure we offered something for everybody. We wanted to keep the classic, comforting taste of grilled cheese while also mixing it up with fun new flavor combinations and signature offerings.

From The Grill

For those who like to keep it a bit more simple, there’s the Classic Roosevelt, which is melted American cheese on white bread. This might seem a little plain for some people. We say you can never go wrong with a classic. 

If you like a bit of spice, we recommend the Del Rio Caliente, made with chorizo, queso fresco, pepper jack cheese, roasted jalapeños, poblano peppers, red peppers and Society Sauce on wheat bread. This sandwich is inspired by the popular Tex-Mex flavors of Southern California and the variety of fresh ingredients that are available to us here.

Breakfast lovers will adore the Bambino, which has fried eggs, bacon, melted American cheese, fresh tomato, and Society Sauce on white bread. Who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner?

And for those who can’t decide between the two best cheesy comfort foods, mac & cheese and grilled cheese, there’s The Gold Standard, mac & cheese with diced bacon on white bread. It’s the ultimate mash-up of cheesy goodness.

If your hunger for grilled cheese can be described as gorilla-like, go for the King Kong, which has mushrooms sautéed in sambuca cream sauce, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, American cheese, and Society Sauce on white bread. The perfect blend of flavorful veggies and gooey cheese will satisfy even the hangriest of diners. 

If you’re a patty melt fan, we recommend trying the Patty Andrews, with a hamburger patty, pepper jack cheese, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and Society Sauce on wheat bread. This reinvention of a diner classic will take you back to the days of milkshakes and poodle skirts, only with a lot more flavor. 

If you’re looking for a sandwich to pair with your Shirley Temple, try the Shirley’s Temple, piled high with muenster cheese, avocado spread, tomato, and Society Sauce on multigrain bread. Talk about a tasty combination!

Finally, for fans of classic comic strips, try the Blondie & Dagwood, complete with roasted turkey, bacon, muenster cheese, blue cheese crumbles, avocado spread & Society Sauce on wheat bread. 

We also offer a totally customizable menu that allows customers to build their own sandwich. You select your bread, your cheeses, and your meat. You can even add on some veggies, like grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, tomato, and avocado spread, and don’t forget our signature Society Sauce. 

On the Side

We also have an amazing sides menu, because we believe no meal is complete without a side. Spicy food fans will go crazy for our Ghost Fries, which are french fries topped with spicy ghost pepper seasoning, and the Buffalo Mac & Hot Cheetos Bites, which are served with society sauce. We’ve also got Onion Rings, Sweet Potato Tots, gooey Mac & Cheese, Classic Mac & Cheese Bites, and Bacon & Blue Cheese Bites, served with society sauce.

If you like dunking your sandwich in a cup of soup, we’ve got you covered. We offer Creamy Tomato soup and New England Clam Chowder, both of which will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, and bring your right back to childhood.

We’re passionate about delivering our customers great flavor and variety, and we’ve carefully constructed our menu to reflect that. We want to ensure that everyone can find something they’ll love here.
