We ate here for lunch because of the good reviews. There were 3 of us. We ordered 3 combos which were supposed to come with chips. Seating is very limited. At first we sat at a table close to the restroom but we moved because...More

Best grilled cheese I've ever had. I'm a big fan of the Larold and the sweet Tea. There is seating inside and out. There are even hula hoops and games to play if you are so inclined. I love the atmosphere here and have always...More

I love stopping at Grilled Cheese Mania. It's such a cute little place with some amazing food! They take grilled cheese to a whole new level, you'll love it. If anything you'll be going back for their delicious tomato soup. Highly recommend.

Grilled Cheese Mania is a fantastic small establishment that serves amazing food and has incredible hospitality. The food comes out pretty quick and the employees are very kind and courteous. The prices are also reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

I chose to stop here based on the other rave reviews, and I was not disappointed. The staff were keen to adapt the order to suit my tastes that day, and I'll be back to work my way through the rest of the menu.

I guess I need to look closer at where a place to eat is. This one is very near a Mason University and I guess has many student customers. I'm 67, and my idea of a highly rated place to eat is very different than...More

Yes, we are near James Madison University and the students love us. We feed them homemade food and appreciate them every day. However, most of our reviews are not from students. I'm not sure what you were expecting but we are nothing more than a...More

Grilled Cheese Mania has just celebrated it's 5 year anniversary. As many of our regulars know, Mania is my maiden name and our menu options are named after my family and friends. All of our foods including our drinks are homemade and prepared on site. We take pride in every order that goes out at GCM. The team I work with offers excellent customer service and they are a pleasure to spend my days with. Without them and you, our customers, I have no business at all. We use quality ingredients in all our recipes and always strive to be consistent and affordable. We don't cut corners on quality and do not strive to be cheap fast food. I do hope you will stop by our new restaurant and enjoy a meal in our new dining room, picnic table or take out. We want you to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself so we have added corn hole, hula hoops, jumbo Jenga, board games and even a huge map for you to pin your hometown on. We look forward to serving you! Blessings, Kathleen Mania-Casey
