Burgers, burgers, burgers. They’re everywhere. These days you find some rendition of a gourmet burger joint in every town. We’ve been to our fair share of these burger bars and each one has its own unique take on the American classic sandwich. Some are definitely better than others, so let’s talk about one we truly enjoyed.

Leesburg, Virginia’s Melt offers an assortment of gourmet burgers including options to create your own perfect burger. Whether you choose their regular sour dough buns or their optional cracked whole wheat buns, you won’t be disappointed. Their cooked to order burgers offer a flavorful and juicy mouthful of yummy goodness. You won’t find us complaining about our burgers, which were classic cheddar bacon burgers.

A multitude of side orders can be found on Melt’s menu; we selected onion rings. Deep fried with a thick golden breading, we were looking for more onion, less batter. Melt dribbles balsamic drizzle across the fried onion rings. It sounds nice, but pared with the sour dough bun, we were left with an overpowering tangy sour bite that lingered. We’d recommend trying another one of Melt’s sides.

Leesburg's Melt ReviewedMelt doesn’t offer a cavernous dining area, which suited us just fine. Perhaps the coolest part of Melt besides their mouthwatering burgers is what they use for wall decor – animals. What made these animals unique is that they were all up for adoption. Melt prints large photo quality posters of a variety of animals that need homes, and they weren’t just cats and dogs. Birds, turtles, horses and even goats needing new homes can be found on Melt’s walls. As animal lovers, we wholeheartedly support their efforts.

Where else can you order one of northern Virginia’s best burgers and adopt a family pet at the same time? Don’t wait to try Melt the next time you’re in Leesburg. Make a special trip. Their burgers won’t disappoint and there are plenty of animals that need homes.
