The inspiration for Burro Cheese Kitchen struck when owner Justin Burrow, an Austin native, spent five years in Seattle. There he discovered the joys of grilled cheese and got the idea of pairing various cheeses with various sauces and presenting a cheese plate dining experience as a grilled cheese sandwich. After trying out hundreds of combinations, Burro Grilled Cheese Kitchen opened its doors in 2013 and has been a solid favorite of the Austin food scene since then. The name comes from the most expensive cheese in the world, Balkan Burro cheese that goes for up to $750 per pound. If you're going to commit to making great grilled cheese sandwiches, you might as well aim to be the best of the best.
Due to their commitment to serving up the finest grilled cheeses anywhere, Burro Cheese Kitchen uses only the finest ingredients in their sandwiches. Their ethos is simple: take good bread, add good cheese, and apply fire to good cheese and good bread. Add in a home-made sauce, and you've got an experience unlike any other. The combinations change often depending on what cheeses are on offer, so you'll have plenty of reasons to stop by often and see what's new.
