Went to Melt today for lunch with my family. My wife and I had cheeseburgers (1/2 or 3/4 pound - not sure which, but pretty large) and the french fries with cheese and bacon.
side note - we usually don't indulge quite like that, but it was my last day of my winter holiday from work :)
The cheeseburgers were excellent. My wife went with the house recipe, and I had the black and bleu. Both were huge and delicious. My son, who is 4.5 years old, had the corn dog from the kids meal.
It's short order. Order and pay at counter, take your number to the self seating area, and await food porn. Take care of your own trash/recyclables. There was no line to order, and though the seating area was a little small, we had no problem getting a table.
The menu was large - probably offered more burger choices than Red Robin. Their exotic burger was a Peking Duck burger. It featured duck from a local farm.
I think the best part was the philanthropy of the place. All along the walls were large photographs of animals needing adopted from the local shelter. Dogs, Cats, Rabbits and Horses were all over the walls. Plus, MELT does not give tips to their employees. Instead, there is a contribution jar for the animal shelter. They have 2 tables for outdoor dining. Next to the tables was a water dish for dogs (outdoor seating is pet friendly).
It's a nice little business with a heart. This was my first experience there. I really enjoyed it, will definitely go back, and will encourage others to do so as well.
