Super Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & More

I chose this place since its debut on DDD and wanted to try it. I was excited to try something other than my normal grilled cheese sandwich. When we arrived we we're not promptly greeted. We kind of felt like a fish out of water. Once we were seated we received menus made out of old album covers... read more

After reading and thinking about the menu, after our second beer, we opted for the Kindergarden (swiss) and the pierogi melt (forgot the name!!) OMG! More food than two people can eat!!! But the sandwiches are awesome and yes, "insanely great" as writer kimnart stated. If only we lived closer and didn't have weight control issues!!!!!

the sandwich pictured on TA accurately shows their mammoth sandwiches. My husband and I noticed everyone's huge sandwiches and decided to split our Cheese Steak sandwich, which was cheesy, moist loaded with sliced beef , onions and peppers. Was very good I could not even finish my half. Restaurant full of customers on a Thursday evening and fully staffed. Glad... More

We have been to Melt several times. Each time we have had different sandwiches & haven't met one we didn't like! There is usually a wait, but just have a beer & relax. It's worth it! Service is always excellent too! We have also learned if you get a Melt tattoo, you will get a discount every visit!!

When I walked in, my first thought was "I'm going to LOVE this! " the atmosphere was great, the servers were friendly and energetic. The decor was fun. The menus were attached to the back of old album covers! However the menu was difficult to read since it was compressed to fit on the album. The waiter was helpful. The... More

Melts had gained a great following since being on DDD show a few years ago. It is a unique experience you don't need to do too often. The menus has a variety of odd concoctions from fried mac and cheese sandwich to fried banana and peanut butter. The size is so large that you can only eat half. An interesting... More

My wife and I stopped in Independence on the way to Niagara Falls. This place was #1 on the list of places to eat. We grabbed a sandwich and fries to take back to the hotel since we are traveling with our dogs. We ordered the Hot Italian and fries. The portion was very generous and the fries were fantastic....

I have been a fan of Melt for a long time. I went to the original Lakewood location before it was featured on various television programs and got extremely popular (although it was still quite popular). I felt like I have noticed declining quality, but I found the food addictive and always wanted to go back, especially for the donut... More

The menu is full of cheesy treats, both with meat and without. It isn't cheap but you will take some home with you, unless you didn't eat all day. The patio is much quieter than the restaurant but only looks into the parking lot.
