If you love cheese, then MELT Pensacola is sure to win over your heart. Although they started with just a food truck, their following has grown big enough to demand a permanent location. So, to appease their biggest fans, they set up shop at The Garden at Palafox, intent on keeping the tasty treats flowing all day long. Their food truck still remains on the run to serve up their iconic menu items at every corner of the neighborhood.

In order to sit back and relax while you enjoy all the cheesiest creations around, you have to visit their garden-side spot. Their dining area is open and airy with cozy wood tables and chairs, setting the stage for a meal to remember. Upon arriving, you’ll be greeted with a friendly “hello” and an invitation to browse the menu at your leisure. Since they know full well how hard it is to choose between all their awesome items, they’ll give you as much time as you need to pin down your order.

Menu items you’re sure to love include:

Cheese Curds
When you just want cheese fried to a crisp in a crunchy batter, get an order of the Cheese Curds. They are served with both ranch and marinara, so you can enjoy them two ways. To take your experience to the next level, put a few of these delightful fried cheese morsels in your melt of choice.  

Mac n’ Cheese Fries
For a one-two punch of flavor, treat yourself to an order of Mac n’ Cheese Fries. They start with a generous helping of their seasoned fries, then add a big scoop of mac and cheese. If that’s not enough, they complete this awesome side with a handful of shredded cheese and a sprinkle of crispy bacon.

Crawfish Mac
When you’re craving a taste of the Gulf, but don’t want to stray from mac and cheese delights, the Crawfish Mac will definitely fit the bill. As with all great things, this dish begins with a huge helping of mac and cheese. Over the top, they add perfectly cooked crawfish and shredded cheese galore.

Philly Cheese Steak Melt
As a part of their melt extravaganza, the Philly Cheese Steak Melt showcases their commitment to everything cheesy. They build this sandwich on garlic spread toast, filling it with thin-cut steak, onions, peppers, and cheese, of course. After that, they grill it up until everything melts together just right.

Funnel Cake Fries
If you have even an inch of room left in your stomach after your meal, the Funnel Cake Fries are always a great choice. They are made using a light and crispy batter that’s fried up until golden brown. Then, they add a big sprinkle of powdered sugar that highlights the sweet flavor of the batter.

As you chow down on your endlessly delicious selections, you won’t be able to keep yourself from dreaming about all the things you didn’t get to try. But, no worries — thanks to their new permanent location, you’ll never have to wonder where they’ll end up next when you want to try the rest. Just come on down and order something different to experience all the amazing things they have to offer.

Insider Tips:
