Growing up in beef-bountiful Texas, I ate hamburgers on a weekly basis. I stopped this habit once I reached high school, and now I hardly eat beef. But everyone needs a burger once in a while, so when the new Burger, Tap & Shake opened in Tenleytown, I decided to indulge in a sandwich.

And who doesn’t love grilled cheese? Four of The Eagle’s staff were more than enthused to collaborate on a grilled cheese tour at the downtown shop. Check out each of our mini-reviews below to see if Melt Shop is right for you.

When I heard that Captain Cookie & the Milkman had added a store to its food truck prodigy, I knew my foreseeable future included a ton of cookies, several cups of milk and a damaged body. Nothing entices me more than the thought of sinking my teeth into a soft, warm cookie and then washing it all down with a glass of cold, silky soy milk.

I had heard of the sit-down Cava Mezze before. A friend of mine always described it as a replica of the Cava Grill in Tenleytown, where a waiter or waitress would provide a menu that contained all of your favorite meats, spreads and toppings that you would expect from Cava Grill.
