This unique mall eatery is no more.

If you've been to Foothills Mall recently to pick up a sweet pair of discounted Levi's, you might have noticed something missing from the mall. That's because Cheesy Rider, Tucson's own grilled cheese restaurant, closed their food court location.

Cheesy Rider, which was originally a food truck, became known in town for incorporating comfort foods like mac and cheese into grilled cheese sandwiches. In September 2014, Cheesy Rider made the leap from truck to mall food court. According to owner Sean Scott, they are currently not sure if they will continue serving up grilled cheese on the food truck.
