The Chew Review
The first thing we noticed when we walked into Melty Way was how great the place looked. From the grilled cheese pop art, to the aluminum chairs, to the single light bulb fixtures, it gave off a clean and modern feel.
The staff were helpful and friendly, even when we made awkward jokes, and they seemed knowledgeable regarding the menu. At a suggestion from the cashier, we ordered the Turkey & Bacon, which she said was one of the more popular sandwiches. We also ordered a Classic with mozzarella and pesto and a parmesan crust.
We enjoyed our grilled cheese, and the tomato soup we had ordered. The sandwiches were cooked well and the cheese was definitely “melty”. We do feel like the bread was too thick though, and that the parmesan crust may have added to it feeling a little dry. It really helped to have the soup to dip them in, as well as the dipping sauces. We like the Melty Sauce and the Chipotle Mayo the best.
Overall, we appreciated the simplicity of the menu, and felt the food was pretty good, but not amazing. Give it a try though. There's something for everyone here.
