Every great town has a local food creation you can't find anywhere else and Yakima is no different.

The only problem is, I find myself trying not to feel nauseous everytime I see them.

Which sucks when the love for them here is real and your friends love eating them.

But, let's be honest. Cheese Zombies are basically cheap ass cafeteria food. A greasy, buttery overload only made worse by enormous amounts of bread that swells in your gut like an inflating balloon. It's a half-assed grilled cheese sandwich. Well, to anyone that didn't grow up eating them I suppose I should say.

The basis for all great grilled cheese sandwiches is Texas toast in every other neck of the woods.

Still, I am willing to admit it is an iconic dish that locals love. Much like a sandwich from Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh. You either love them or open them up and dissect them in disgust.
