Melt Birmingham, AL – great place to eat in Avondale. Food truck turned restaurant. Great cocktails, appetizers and fun grilled cheese sandwiches. Make sure to save room for the Double Stuf Fried Oreos!
Today I am going to tell you about one of our favorite lunch spots in Birmingham, Melt. Melt started out as a food truck and then turned into a restaurant. It is located in the Avondale neighborhood in Birmingham. Very close to another favorite place – Post Office Pies. Melt serves tons of great food, but their speciality is grilled cheese sandwiches. Keep reading to see our favorites!
Melt has a really good cocktail menu.
We’ve sampled several.
The ROSA ‘RITA
sauza silver, orange liqueur, watermelon purée, lime juice w/ salt & pepper rim
BHAM BLOODY MARY
our twist on a classic w/ alabama shine, habanero jack cheese & bacon
A MINOR SKIRMISH
maker’s mark, lemonade, thyme-infused honey, splash of soda
All delicious! In addition to cocktails, Melt has wine and several local beers on tap.
I could make a meal out of these Food Truck Nachos!
They are SO good!!
Pulled pork BBQ, nacho cheese sauce, fried jalapeños, green onions, jalapeño ranch with house-made chips.
I am wishing I had some right now!
Another favorite appetizer is That’s How Matilda Rolls.
They are named after the old food truck, Matilda.
They are wonton wrappers filled with mozzarella, cheddar, red pepper flakes, flash-fried and served with marinara.
I could eat two servings of these and call it a day!
The MAC MELT
house-made mac-n-cheese in a grilled cheese on texas toast
buffalo-sauced chicken tenders & monterey jack on texas toast w/ side of miss fancy’s ranch
I like to substitute the jalapeño ranch from the nachos for the regular ranch – super spicy!
cheddar and american cheese, bacon, grilled jalapeños on texas toast with a side of ranch
smoked ham, habanero jack cheese, cajun-spiced grilled pineapple on a pretzel roll
This is Chicken Legs’ favorite. He raves about it!
