“Awesome Burger, too close for comfort seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Love, love the food! Yummy burgers and fries that will satisfy everyone from All American to Fancy Gourmet. Clean, casual, with open grill area so you can watch them prepare your food. Seating during busy lunch crowds are uncomfortable if need to squeeze through chairs or pass around a table. I was afraid my purse or body was going to rub someone as I walked past tables. Not sure of the right dining area solution except to maybe have less tables? We will be back again but only if I'm eating with a small group.

“Love the buns as well as the burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

What a treat to have a homemade bun with the most delicious burger in the world. We
were there when there wasn't a crowd so we lucked out. The decor was great fun with
the photos of the animals for adoption, and the black and white with red was very
attractive. I felt it worth the money, but I would have second thoughts about bringing
the grandchildren because of the prices. With our appetites, the fries and burgers were
a great value as they were so spectacular. I am unsure I would like it when there was
a crowd as we were able to enjoy the food in a quiet time in mid-afternoon. We have
recommended it to several people who are traveling to that area. We are confident
they will enjoy it too!

“Not a family place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Second visit to melt. First time was with me and my husband on a sunday afternoon. Totally cramped and people are willing to kill one another over seats. The food was good other than stressing over when and how we would get a seat. It was pretty expensive but food was good. We went with our three kids on a saturday night and it was the same problem. Not a seat in the house and when we asked the kids to try and find a seat the adults of another family actually fought him for the table. We ended up getting frustrated and just left. Not a family restaurant!

“Terrible place for families.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Long line and no seating equals total anarchy. Adults kept cutting my kids off for tables while i waited forever in line to order.

So called "kids" discount is a $7 dollar burger! My burger was $13 and not worth it at that price. At Ray's the burgers are better and they make people wait til they have a number before they can grab a table.

“Excellent Food - Great Donations to Local Animal Shelter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

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.
