Best Jack-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.

California, where Jack cheese was born, is your best bet for this mellow cheese, with the regular and pepper versions found on burgers and in grilled-cheese sandwiches across the state. (Though this cheese is, obviously, found pretty much everywhere.)

To try something more unusual, head to Northern California to try dry Jack cheese, a sweet and nutty varietal that is only made in this region. You’ll often find it on salads, including kale offerings at Grand Lake Kitchen in Oakland and Za’s Lakefront in Tahoe City, and a Ceasars salad with anchovies at the Mendocino Hotel Restaurant, pictured here.
