Shopping at The Streets at South Pointe in Durham is exhausting - especially during Christmas season. Collapsing for a break, we discovered American Meltdown, specifically a melted Cubano - and it was such a pleasant surprise! Buttered and toasted sourdough housed smoked pork, Swiss cheese,...More

The Cuban sandwich is one of my favorites and I've eaten them all over. Consequently, I have a high tolerance for variances, but the one I had at the American Meltdown was so far out that Cuba should not have been used in it's name....More

I liked the alternative of fried Brussels sprouts. I appreciated that they made my husband's sandwich to order. My sandwich was delicious (Pigs N Figs). I was absolutely put off by the generic fountain diet cola. If I go back I will definitely order water.

Tried the French Onion (as in French Onion Soup on bread) and it was incredible. Really flavorful wine-simmered onions and herbs with muenster cheese on rustic bread. YUM with a capital Y!
