The food was great, but a full sandwich is a lot of food! the different types available are amazing, it would take weeks to try them all

Went here based on T/A reviews and was not disappointed as we love grilled cheese sandwiches. The place is a little hard to find as it's back off the street in a strip mall several miles from downtown. Seating is limited and nothing fancy with a kind of an off centered ambiance. But the grilled cheese sandwiches are fabulous and... More

We went here while passing through town based on reviews. The food did not disappoint. My husband and I shared the simpleton and the kids shared the kid one. It was sooooooo delicious!!! But it took 25 minutes to get the food... Not sure why. I know it was made fresh and all but it seems a bit slow to... More

If you like melted cheese (and I love it), it's hard to beat a Meltz grilled cheese sandwich. They're big, loaded and gooey good. Plus, you have plenty of options for customizing your sandwich. If you want the full return-to-childhood experience, get a cup of the tomato soup. We'll definitely go back for the food but we'll get takeout. While... More

Sweet lord in heaven. There is a God in heaven, and a Grilled Cheese Sandwich God behind the Grill, and his name is Joe McCarthy, owner ( w/ his wife Brianna), operator, and HGCO ( Head Grilled Cheese-Ologist). What the mighty McCarthy has wrought @ Meltz is as mind-blowing as it is mouth-watering. He is a creator of culinary wonders... More

These grilled cheese sandwiches are fabulous. I wish I could make these at home. The location at the gas station is a bit odd but I suppose the rent is cheap. The selection is large and the chips are really good, too. We had such a good meal the first time, we went 20 minutes out of our way to... More

If your in town you have to try this place. I have never had a grilled sandwich like this before. The only thing I can say bad is they need a bigger place because of the amount of people buying food here. You have to try it.

The Potsticker is above and beyond a sandwich. The layers of flavor and dipping sauce screams instant gourmet. Culinary LOVE went into the creation of that one. Will be back for more.

The first impression from driving up to this small locale at the end of a small strip mall with a gas station was not good. We stepped inside and things got better. Walked up to the counter and the service blew us away. Extremely friendly, patient and helpful staff (we were a party of 7 on a long roadtrip). Everything... More
