This place reminds me of Austin, TX. Great food, decent prices and laid back atmosphere. I had the 3 Amigos and it was out of sight. Big salads and servings were worth the money.

Reminiscent of gastropubs in sprawling metropolises, you are enveloped in an environment out of character for the Deep South. Soon you realize that looks can be deceiving. Melt staff is infused with southern hospitality and charm. Each visit to Melt involved a wait to be...More

Found Melt on this site, looking for lunch with vegan options for two people in our party. We were told they could make any sandwich vegan with vegan cheese. All sandwiches had meat except the grilled cheese. I had the sandwich highlighted on Diners &...More

We can always take off the meat and add extra veggies. We have a rainbow of vegetables and can make any sandwich vegetarian friendly.

Had lunch there recently with my wife; she had been before and raved about it. We ordered a local draft and a bottled craft. They were out of the local draft: inexcusable on a Friday, two blocks from the brewery that makes it. We ordered...More

Food was great, all different types of grilled cheese sandwiches, salads, soup, French fries and sides. Service was fast and efficient. I really give this place my highest recommendation and was a great pick for lunch for the family.

Melt came up #3 when we looked for a lunch stop on our way home. We are so glad we stopped here! The food and service were both great. We’ll remember this place when we return to Birmingham.

Yep, 3 short blocks. I agree that Post Office Pies ( pizza) and Saw's BBQ are equally great choices. There are lots of restaurants popping up along this street, but these would be my top picks.
