Roxy's Grilled Cheese
Where we've featured it
Movie Pairing: Pulp Fiction (Hulu)
“In a world where time has lost all meaning, why not watch a movie with a nonlinear narrative in which the final scene actually takes place before a good 30% of the rest of the movie? The only problem is, you won’t be able to watch the scene where Jules downs a Big Kahuna burger and washes it down with a tasty beverage without wanting a burger yourself. And while Tasty Burger (which was actually named after the scene) is closed, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese in Allston is open for pickup and delivery. The double cheeseburger with Roxy’s sauce is almost as ethereally beautiful as whatever was in the briefcase, too.” - DS
When we think about vegan and vegetarian spots, Roxy’s - with a variety of bacon melts and burgers - isn’t usually the first place that comes to mind. But then we remember the buffalo tofu melt, the homemade veggie burgers, and the entire section of the menu that’s vegan (all available for ordering online), which makes us question all the other things that come to mind.
If you ran out of bread and cheese, Roxy’s is still making grilled cheeses available for takeout and delivery. They also have some good vegan options on their menu.
