Popular Avondale restaurant announces Trussville location

From The Trussville Tribune staff reports

A popular Avondale restaurant is set to be part of Trussville’s downtown redevelopment and is expected to be the first of several similar eateries to locate in the area.

Melt has announced on social media that their second location will be in Trussville.

Chris Donaldson, who is developing multiple parcels of property downtown along with his partner Coby Lake, confirmed that the restaurant is planned for Morrow Avenue.

“We’re excited about this new opportunity with the great people at Melt,” Donaldson said. “They share our vision and excitement for the future of downtown Trussville.”

According the company website, “The concept behind MELT is simple: a modern twist on a classic comfort food. The menu is approachable and the food is scrumptious. There is something about going back to basics that just makes sense. Grilled cheese sandwiches put smiles on faces. Whether it’s a plain grilled cheese, a Burger with Matilda sauce or a spicy Buffalo Chicken sandwich , the MELT menu has something for everyone.”

Additionally, the restaurant offers vegetarian and vegan dishes.

The proposed opening date is not known at this time. Slag Heap Brewing Company is expected to open on the corner of Main Street and Morrow this fall.

  67. J Jewell says:

    If they send out people trashed, they’ll not last but you shouldn’t condemn it just because they serve alcohol that true does have higher content but also flavor. I’m a former heavy drinker and it doesn’t matter , if someone wants to get wasted. They will. But don’t group 9/10….you can’t assume because they sell it means it’s gonna be abused. That’s a whole lot of tax money for the city. Bring it on, hold em accountable but let them have the free will to act responcible. Guess I’ll be that 1/10 who will go for the food…

  68. Bill Lowery ok awesome. I wasn’t sure and that road didn’t ring a bell.

  69. Wallace Wahd says:

    J Jewell Not condemning at all. I’d love to see it work …. Not for “tax money” though ….. Tax money just breeds more government. We need more government honks like I need a brick in my rectum….. I digress…. I’d love to see this work.

  70. Yea!!! Joy Bassham Dorriety, great place for lunch!

  71. I know!! I’m so excited!

  72. Awesome! Can’t wait!!!

  73. No it’s kinda across from Lowe’s closer to the Pinnacle Shopping Center

  74. The location is Morrow Avenue in downtown Trussville. You may be thinking of Morrow Road.

  75. Yep I know. Going to be awesome.
