My business partner saw a review for Meltz, touting it as the best. They WERE SO right! This is a must if you love fresh grilled sandwiches. They serve an awesome Ruben with homemade sauerkraut. They have gluten free bread, a must for me and some of my associates. They are always busy, but we'll worth the wait!

Finding Meltz was a stroke of luck (thank you, Google!) in the middle of a long drive across the western US. My family will tell you I have an unhealthy passion for grilled cheese (and hot sandwiches in general), but I'm a little hard to please. I don't want a soggy panini, and I don't want anything burned to a... More

We were a group of 7 and spent almost $100 for sandwiches and an order of chips and drinks. They were good. If you don't eat a ton save some money and just get half a sandwich, they were big. Staff was friendly.

Yum! We had the south of the border with jalapeño bacon and also traditional grilled cheese and the oozy good. Half sandwich is satisfying, big portions. And the homemade chips are delish too! The location was surprising, but don't let that turn you away. The food was great and the staff very friendly and food came out quickly.

We had the half sandwich combo. I had the Mexi Meatloaf with tomato basil bisque soup. Tom had the Cubano with macaroni and cheese soup. Very good and enjoyable. Glad we tried it before we left.

This really wasn't that good. The food was greasy and you left feeling sick! The seating was horible.

Really don't know what the big deal is all a about. Greasy, kinda cheesy. They didn't even use a good sharp cheese on my sandwich. Left me feeling sick. Too bad, I really wanted to like this place.

This place is to die for. Not a lot of seating, but if you are in the area, you need to check it out. Best grilled cheese of my life and I've had quite a few.

Oh man... I just need to wait a second while the memory seeps in... Meltz is perfect. They're not doing something unique just making out of this world comfort food. Every cheese you could dream of you're allowed to put on one of two types of bread and then add any kind of veggies and meat to create your dream... More

Yes, Meltz Extreme Grilled Cheese is attached to a gas station convenience store. No, you shouldn’t let that stop you from experiencing some delicious grilled cheese. From the basic bread and cheese offering (which isn’t really all that basic) to more exotic items like their Uncommon or Extreme menu sections, it’s hard to go wrong when ordering at Meltz. I...

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!
