I posed the question on my Facebook page, "Which restaurant in greater Danbury serves up the best grilled cheese sandwich?"

Today (Wednesday) is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day across our great nation. Before I let you in on where you can find some of the best grilled cheese in the area, let's briefly dive into the history of grilled cheese sandwiches. It's always a win-win when you can place a luscious mound of rich fat laden cheese in-between two pieces of bread of your choice.

The modern day grilled cheese sandwich was born in the 1920s, when inexpensive bread and cheese were readily available.

Bread and cheese are all of the necessary ingredients, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to crafting a specialized grilled cheese, depending on your topping preferences. The following list is made up of replies to my FB post on where to find the best grilled cheese sandwich in Danbury:
