With 15 different grilled cheese options ranging from classic melts to blueberry grilled cheeses, it’s no wonder Hammontree’s is a Fayetteville favorite. They have 26 cheeses to choose from and sides like soup, fries (sweet potato & regular), and salad. Try the Build-A-Melt option if you can’t find a sandwich that suits your fancy!
