My wife and I decided to give the place a try. She loves all types of cheese, I am not as enthusiastic. She had a 1/2 grilled cheese with 4 different cheeses and the tomato bisque, I had the 1/2 Reuben with mac & cheese. The food was fantastic, my sandwich had thinly sliced pastrami and was perfectly grilled, the... More

This is not the grilled cheese of your childhood. Unique flavor combinations, quality ingredients and tomato soup to round out the experience.

We were on a road trip and only spending one day in the area, and based upon reviews, decided to try Extreme Meltz for an easy dinner. GO!!! I've had upscale grilled cheese sandwiches - but this was so far above anything I had previously. I ordered the Potsticker and my companion had the Phat Philly. We ordered the smaller... More

On my road trip from Seattle to Atlanta, I stopped at Meltz for lunch. Boy oh boy, what a great idea!!! I had the Oinker and the person with me had the Tijuana Taxi. We were both satisfied with our choices. I need yall to bring a shop to Atlanta!!!

NOT your Grandma's Grilled Cheese Sandwich! Fabulous twist on an ole staple, the classic grilled cheese sandwich upgraded to something truly special. The variety is vast, and the sizes are huge. Great food, friendly at the counter servers, and very personable owner, Joe. A real winner, highly recommend!

I've been to several restaurants that make upscale or unusual grilled cheese sandwiches as their focus, but Meltz is really a couple of steps above and beyond any of the others I have tried. The cost seems high for a simple grilled cheese, but then these are not simple grilled cheese, so cost is appropriate. I had the Pork Belly... More

Small place in a strip mall situation, but do not be fooled, this place brings it. A menu that is so diverse, it is almost intimidating! You could probably go back 4 or 5 times before you have a handle on exactly how everything works. The basic premise is that you can build your own grilled cheese sandwich with just... More

The TripAdvisor reviews were spot-on regarding Meltz! You are greeted by all employees saying "Welcome to Meltz" as you walk in the door. They have numerous, creative sandwich options to pick from or you can make your own grilled cheese. My Mom loved their tomato soup. Don't be deceived by the location about a mile off the interstate in a... More

We had looked ahead before arriving for something different than the usual. Both of our girls love grilled cheese, so we thought it was worth a shot. Wow! I have never seen a grilled cheese sandwich that thick! No skimping on the toppings here. The service was excellent as well. Everyone was very upbeat and friendly. The next we are... More

We take comfort food seriously, Extremely seriously, but with some twists. Combining our passion for Extraordinary flavor profiles with our love for the Extreme, MELTZ is the culmination of years of culinary experience. Fusing layers of flavor, our sandwiches go beyond your expectations and what you may imagine. These sandwiches are deliberate in every way to bring you an Extreme combination of textures, flavors, spices and heat. Oh, we still make simple, familiar grilled cheese sandwiches. But if you're looking to Kick Up Your Comfort, we've got something on the menu for you!
