Restaurant Review: Hammontree’s Grilled Cheese, Fayetteville AR

Who would have thought that Fayetteville needed a grilled cheese only restaurant? I have to admit I was more than skeptical at first. However curiosity got the best of us so we checked it out. The atmosphere was plain but appropriate as it shares space with the neighboring bookstore. Their menu was intriguing including selections with catchy TV, movie and literary references which made it a fun read and hard to find the right gooey grouping with which to go. After some laughs, drooling, and deliberation we chose:

  • Parmageddon – Parma Cheese, Parma Ham, Ricotta, Sautéed Mushrooms, on parmesan crusted sourdough, served with a side of red sauce for dipping (according to the menu on the website.) We did not get the sauce which is disappointing; however for some reason I do not remember seeing the red sauce listed on the menu in the restaurant.

  • Caprese Melt – Fresh Mozzarella, pesto, tomato bruschetta topping, fresh basil, and house cheese on sourdough. The bruschetta topping is house made and very tasty. It could have used a little more on the sandwich.

  • Spinach Gorgonzola Soup – Baby Spinach in cream base.

  • Crawfish Bisque – Spicy cream soup with a spicy tomato kick. This soup had a somewhat of a ‘Rotel’ flavor that stood out.

Verdict: Even though soup is on the menu, and there were some that sounded excellent like the Spinach Gorgonzola, we found them to be too starchy and flat in flavor.  You may want to stick to the sandwiches.

Bottom Line: While we are still wondering about the mission and longevity of a Grilled Cheese Only establishment they seem to be doing well. Some of the combinations were different so big kudos for variety. While Hammontree’s will not make the hot sheet we will go back if we get a hankering for multi-flavored gooey cheese sammich.
