Melt Bar & Grilled
Review by: Roadfood Team
A sandwich genius
Melt Bar and Grilled is truly one of the most innovative and enjoyable eating experiences in the country. From opening at 11 am until close each day, expect to wait your turn with locals and travelers alike to enjoy the grilled cheese-inspired sandwich genius of Melt.
What should I eat at Melt Bar and Grilled?
Melt serves up some of the most unique grilled cheese sandwiches on the planet. They range from their signature “Westside Monte Cristo”, which features honey ham, smoked turkey, Swiss, American, and mixed berry preserves, to the enormous “Parmageddon,” with potato and cheese pierogis, fresh Napa vodka kraut, grilled onions, and cheddar. All Melt Bar and Grill sandwiches come with a mountain of delicious, thick-cut, and perfectly seasoned fries, as well as a heap of their awesome homemade vinegar-based slaw.
We have eaten at Melt three times, and each time the sandwich has been absolutely fantastic. The most memorable experience was the Westside Monte Cristo. What sets this sandwich over the edge is the bread. Melt normally uses a fantastic, thick garlic sourdough. However, the Monte Cristo bread comes beer-battered, deep-fried, and lightly coated with powdered sugar. This creates a remarkable similarity to a doughnut. The sandwich arrives with a berry paste, similar to jelly, that when applied makes for a memorable sandwich experience.
Other winners in the sandwich category
Other winners include “The Dude Abides,” “The Rising Sun,” and any of Melt’s sandwiches of the month. If you have room left over, Melt’s grilled peanut butter and banana dessert sandwich is a must try.
This is worth the wait!
Don’t be deterred by Melt’s long waits. The bar offers a wide selection of microbrews to pass the time and the wait staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. You can easily spend 20 minutes checking out Melt’s unique artwork and décor. A true must visit.
