The Daily Melt in Midtown

The Daily Melt

The Daily Melt just opened up it’s second spot in Midtown right next to the Five Guys. Their first restaurant is in Coral Springs where I originally planned to hit them up til I found out about this fella. I had taken a look at the menu online so I knew which 2 I wanted to eat. I added a Cup of Broccoli & Cheese Soup. The Soups are available in either Cup or Shot, which is great for those just wanting a little something extra. The Broccoli & Cheese Soup was a run of the mill soup that can be found at a Subway or Quiznos type establishment.

Both of my Grilled Cheeses (Bacon Melt & Coney Island Melt) were on Sourdough Bread but I could have gone the Wheat route. It wouldn’t seem right to have a Grilled Cheese on Wheat Bread anyway. The Bacon Melt had Cheddar, Crispy Bacon, Spinach, Roma Tomato with a side of ruffled pickles. The Coney Island Melt was a Hot Dog Grilled Cheese with American Cheese, Chili, Onions and Yellow Mustard (and those pickles on the side too). Neither of these two did it for me. The Daily Melt is claiming to be “The Ultimate Grilled Cheese”  but these are the type of sandwiches that I could recreate at my home with better ingredients and results.

My friend who was with me ate the Meatball & BBQ Pulled Pork Melts. His words after the first bite of the BBQ Pulled Pork Melt was that this was “Mall Food”. Ironically enough, the first Daily Melt location is in Coral Springs Mall so that makes sense. If you do check it out, please let me know your thoughts below in the comments area.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.

    Not worth my time or effort …

    I can’t imagine that someone would put their money into this kind of Franchise.

    It is doomed for failure, the reason you go out for a meal – at least in my view, is to get something “You Can’t” make at home. Unique in flavor – unique in ingredients or chefs ability to transform the ingredient into something special.

    Thanks for the review,

    Glad to offer my 2 cents.

    Based on this review and the photos I will not bother trying this restaurant.
    Thanks for saving me from mall food.

    I have been there 3 times (mid-town location only) I have tried the Pulled Pork, Italiano (I think that is what its called) and the Bacon, I really can not say anything negative about any of the sandwiches I tried, on the contrary even though I will not likely order the Italiano again I LOVED THE PULLED PORK & THE BACON. I don’t think its mall food, I think its a real good grilled cheese which I look for when I see food trucks at the “urban food court” during ArtWalk. I can think of 2 popular grilled cheese food trucks and this is better than both so its got my vote.
    If I was George, I would give it a chance and form my own opinion, 5 bucks probably wont break the bank, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised:)

      This is no way better than Ms. Cheezious’ Grilled Cheeses. Sorry dude. Ms. Cheezious makes their Pulled Pork, they do not buy the prepackaged one.

      Over the years posts by Burger Beast have saved me from many bad meals.
      I’m interested in trying new restaurants with delicious offerings and avoiding mundane restaurants with uninspired fare.
      I’ve learned to trust Burger Beast and his reviews.
