why does that photo look like it’s from 1975?
It’s all about the 1975-style Instagram filters. ;)August 19, 2014 9:31 am at 9:31 am #1035415September 15, 2014 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1041383
Finally tried the Hilliard location and had the Crunchy Garlic Chicken. That was one good sandwich. I honestly like Tom+Chee better than Melt. Melt just seems to be on a different level of size, grease and indigestion that I can’t take.September 15, 2014 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1041407
I wanted to love it but it was just OK….it was grilled cheese (I did have chips added) and tomato soup. I thought $12 was a bit much for just the basic sandwich and the soup tasted very ketchup-y. My kids got their children’s meal – 1/2 a sandwich, the smallest container of soup I’ve ever seen (I mean the size dish some restaurants use for condiments) and juice box for $5. For $34 for our family of four – it just was too much for that kind of basic meal.October 24, 2014 9:07 am at 9:07 am #1047467October 24, 2014 10:14 am at 10:14 am #1047478
Well, perhaps they will be able to tap into the market that Gooeyz was not.
Perhaps having the perfect name will be the trick.October 24, 2014 10:16 am at 10:16 am #1047484
that location seems to be cursed since la bomba moved out. (and then closed in their new location RIP burritos as big as your head.)October 24, 2014 11:33 am at 11:33 am #1047509
Why so stingy with the tomato soup? It’s something that you can cook a giant vat of for almost nothing. That’s why middle school cafeterias serve it so often.November 14, 2014 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1050430
Tom & Chee opens on North High Street near OSU

Tom & Chee may be growing fast, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t learning some lessons. The Cincinnati-based grilled cheese and soup chain expects to end the year with 19 restaurants. It started the year with seven. By second quarter 2015 it could double in size Trew Quackenbush told me Friday.

Damn that makes me sad. I miss getting tapes at Used Kids basement and then getting a cheap burrito next door.
As for this grilled cheese place, best of luck, tough competition in the campus area.November 14, 2014 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1050488

Just went to Tom+Chee’s new location on North High Street. I got the Mac & Cheese sandwich combo which includes a cup of soup and drink. The total was under $10. The soup as someone alluded to earlier is a little ketchup-y which I agree to. However, I was still able to dunk the sandwich into the soup even though it was a cup size and I was thinking about buying a bowl of soup. The Mac & Cheese sandwich was plentiful and filling. I like how they gave me oyster crackers for the soup which is a nod to Cincinnati’s chili parlors that supply bowls of oyster crackers to hungry patron. Rooted in Cincinnati, Tom+Chee understands the local food culture.
Since 2007 when I first went to Ohio State, that location has changed establishments from time to time. First it was Moe’s Southwest Grill, then Ali Baba, next was Pera, and now Tom+Chee.November 22, 2015 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1103448

Cincinnati-based restaurant Tom+Chee appears to have quietly closed all three Central Ohio locations. The grilled-cheese-and-tomato-soup-centric restaurants were operated locally by franchisee Ron Freeman.

Honestly, they were over-hyped and overpriced.November 22, 2015 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1103561
Lasted longer than I thought it would.
