Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese at American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco

America's quintessential cheese dish is the grilled cheese — and at restaurants across the country, this classic dish has been given a delicious twist.

San Francisco's American Grilled Cheese Kitchen has really upped the game with its over-the-top take: mac and cheese stuffed between two thick slices of garlic-buttered sourdough bread (sourdough is a San Francisco specialty).

The crew being flown up, could see him from their helicopters.
