Despite the popularity of this Temescal cheese shop, many customers still aren’t aware that owner Jena Davidson and her crew serve a full American comfort food menu all day long. And that’s a shame because the food at Sacred Wheel is legitimately great — from the colorful pickled eggs to what may be the best mac ’n’ cheese in town. The shop’s pièce de résistance is its grilled cheese sandwich, which pairs perfectly with Davidson's tangy, slightly spicy PBR tomato soup — each batch made with an entire twelve-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. And the playfully named “Loafin’ Around,” a stellar meatloaf sandwich that’s built like a grilled cheese, is simply too delicious to be missed.
