Melt Bar and Grilled Lands on List of Nation's Best Drunken Eats



Since 2006, Melt Bar and Grilled has been nourishing locals with gargantuan cheese laden sandwiches, expertly staving off afternoon munchies and soaking up remnants of late nights at the bar. 

National eaters, too, have tossed Melt their praises, the latest coming from Thrillist, which reckons Melt offers some of the best drunken eats in the country.

Writer Adam Lapetina opines one particular menu item:
Melt specializes in grilled cheeses — really, really good grilled cheeses — loaded with everything from bologna to meatloaf, chorizo, lasagna, and fried chicken.

that are perfect.
