I’ve eaten my way through the entire menu at Killer Melts (
12310 SW 127th Ave, Miami). Killer Melts were initially part of the Miami Food Truck scene until expanding into a restaurant and later inside the Yumbrella Food Hall ( 5701 Sunset Dr. Suite 194, South Miami). Unfortunately, both locations have closed.
The entire Killer Melts restaurant is themed out to the tune of cheese. In addition to the wall of cheezy lines, there is also a display of cheese graters.
I’d say the Killer Melt is my favorite on the grilled cheese side of things with its bacon jam, caramelized onions, Muenster & Cheddar cheeses on toasted white bread.
There is no obvious choice when looking at their selection of burgers; for me, the American Gangster is where my burger heart lies. The AG features two 3.5 oz. burger patties topped with bread & butter pickles, maple-glazed bacon, grilled onions, mayo & American cheese on a burger bun.
My mouth is watering just thinking of this guy.
Don’t stop at dishes encased in bread cause the fries and, in particular, that Killer Mac N Cheese (with cheese sauce, ham, bacon, jalapeño, cheddar, and swiss cheeses & scallions) is phenomenal. It’s so remarkable that when I took my first bite of it, I almost got up and went into the kitchen to slap the chef.
I don’t suggest you try that food aggression, though; it’s only for professionals like me. And if you can squeeze in space for some dessert, you won’t go wrong with any of the choices, but I love that house-made bread pudding.
