Sinking your teeth into a Melt signature burger may seem like a herculean feat given the size of the gargantuan burgers, but it is damn worth every single bite. Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers (referred as the singular “Melt”) boasts that their burgers are the best, and they have the pedigree to back it up: not only has Melt won ‘best burger’ in Loudoun an incredible 6 times in a row, they have also been ranked as the number seven best burger restaurant in the United States by, making Melt a hometown hero.

Located in the Bellwood Common area of Leesburg, Virginia, Melt maintains their high standards by getting their beef blended and ground in a way unique only to the restaurant, but also by maintaining fresh produce and seafood that is delivered every day. In addition, they bake their buns and bread twice a day in store. One shouldn’t be put off by Melt’s gourmet standards- the restaurant is down to earth, and relaxed and fun place to spend time.

Melt maintains too, in addition to fresh and specialized ingredients, a wide variety of menu selections. Whether you want to keep things simple with a classic cheeseburger or if you want to kick things up a notch and try out one of the many gourmet burgers, you will find a burger that will satisfy your tastes.
