A cheese-centric restaurant chain in Boston shut down its kiosk in South Station, leaving the transportation hub without mac and cheese-filled grilled cheese sandwiches. Cheeseboy took its comfort food-driven menu and left, after six years in operation, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
The local chain has remaining locations in Downtown Crossing, Natick, and Connecticut, but a representative confirmed the South Station closure for a customer on Facebook. Cheeseboy was understandably known for its cheesy dishes, including a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches and melts, mac and cheese, and soups. There were also salad options for those less cheese-inclined, and the South Station kiosk offered a selection of breakfast sandwiches as well.
Cheeseboy has been known to hold an annual Free Grilled Cheese Day, which tends to draw long lines of customers in each of its locations. The South Station closure follows the departure of a handful of other Cheeseboys in recent years. There were previously locations in the Prudential Center, Braintree, and New York.
