Melt has stayed busy since they first opened their doors over the summer. Those who don’t like cheese need not apply 😉 Look for indulgent sandwiches like the mac melt (mac and cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich) and the 3 amigos (ham, sliced chorizo, over easy egg, and Monterey and habanero jack cheeses on sourdough bread).

Super Chix adds Huntsville as their first location outside of the Dallas area. Chicken + fries + frozen custard = a winning combination in Huntsville! It’s worth mentioning that they even offer a cheese-stuffed fried avocado sandwich as a vegetarian option.

Hops n Guac
Hops N Guac is “hoppin” until midnight during the week and 2am Friday and Saturday. Their burritos are enormous and served with a knife and fork. Get your wristband and head to the taps where you can pour as little or as much beer as you’d like.

Fractal Brewing Project
Located in the old Straight to Ale spot on Leeman Ferry Road, Fractal Brewing made the space their own with a great redesign that gives a fresh feel to go along with all their new beers.
We enjoyed the Fractal IPA on our first trip and were also lucky to have the limited release black IPA that was brewed just for Veteran’s Day.
