Leesburg: Melt Burger

After going on a tour of the South Lawn, Teddy and I decided to head to Leesburg to go to Leesburg Animal Park. He was in the mood for meat so I looked up places on the drive there and Melt Burger looked like a good option.

We went on a Saturday around 130/2 and it was packed. While waiting in line to order you can watch as they cook the burgers and make the rolls (kind of like my fav restaurant here!).

To start off the meal I decided that we needed to split a milkshake so we went with the Double Dark Chocolate. This was really good, although it just tasted like normal chocolate to me, maybe a little richer.
Teddy ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger Char-Grilled Premium Hamburger served with Fresh Lettuce, Red Ripe Tomato, Shaved Red Onion, Crisp Bacon, Aged Tillamook Cheddar Cheese and Our Special House Sauce $9.95. He really enjoyed his burger. 
I ordered the Tex-Mex Burger Our Premium Beef Burger topped with Melted Jack Cheese, Fresh Pico de Gallo, Grilled Spicy JalapeƱos, Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa, Fresh Lettuce, Guacamole and Our Smoky Chipotle Sauce $9.95. I ordered mine without the corn & black bean salsa. This was a delicious burger, not too spicy but enough to make my nose run some. Teddy tried a bite and said that he was fine with the spice but he definitely wouldn't be able to do an entire burger. 
It's important to note that these burgers are huge. I wasn't able to take a full bite of the burger because it was too big to put in my mouth (yes...I know) and I couldn't smash it down. Although I was starving I couldn't finish the burger because there was so much there.

On their own the fries are just ok, so I would suggest getting them with one of the toppings offered (Teddy got bacon and cheese...yum!) and sharing them between 2-3 people. 

Burgers are the new cupcake, with new restaurants popping up everywhere you look. Melt Burger stands out. I was impressed with their burgers and I liked the fact that you could choose the temperature that your burger was cooked (I need some pink in my meat!). The burgers were quality and there were a lot of fun and creative options to choose from. They cater to the low carb diet, offering to put your burger on a bed of greens.  Melt can definitely hold their own against all the other burger places popping up. 

So would I come back??? Yes! I've got my eye on the Paris Burger, probably on a bed of lettuce so I have room in my stomach for the entire burger.
