Best Place to Overdo Dairy (Savory Variety) San Francisco 2012 - Bender's
This loud grotto has some great beer on draft (including Pliny the Elder), and a menu than runs to the fried and excessive. For dairy greenhorns, there's the Grilled Cheesus Christ: a three-cheese toasted sandwich with tomato that's even cheesier than it sounds. But for those who want to take a real starch + dairy challenge, there's the Grilled Mac 'n' Cheese Sandwich, a creamy behemoth that will take you all night to eat. Two hunks of bread separated by several inches of cheese and elbow pasta — as savory and comforting a combination of food elements as has yet been devised by mankind. It goes without saying that a sandwich like that can absorb its fair share of beer. Also: Tots! A photo booth! Bands!
