No trip to Nashville is complete without a stop at Hattie B's for their famous Nashville HOT Chicken. We hope our grilled cheese version of Hattie B's meets the Nashville heat test.

We start with a seasoned chicken breast and add our Nashville-seasoned cheese mixture. This melt packs both great flavor and a bit of heat.

Back to an old favorite this week, Smoked Gouda. This classic grilled cheese is a great blend of our cheese with the smokey flavor of Gouda. If you like Ham & Cheese, ask us to combine the Smoked Gouda with a Ham & Cheese for your own personalized melt.

Last week's special Jalapeno & Bacon was very popular with customers and will definitely be back again during the year.

It's Monday, so, members of Capitol Dividends receive 10% off their purchases.

We hope to see you this week at Capitol Melts to enjoy the smokey flavor of our Smoked Gouda.

This week's special is a Jalapeño Popper Melt. Our melt has all the creamy goodness of a stuffed jalapeño with bacon. We start with a cheese blend of roasted jalapenos and bacon, then add fresh-cut jalapenos and strips of crisp bacon. This melt packs a little heat, but you can't beat the delicious flavor.

This special is always a sell-out, so come in early if you want to savor this flavorful melt.

Also today, we start our raffle for two-tickets for the Albany Empire home games. Next game is Saturday, so this weeks' drawing will be Thursday.

We hope to see you this week at CAPITOL MELTS enjoying a Jalapeños Popper Melt.
