Best burger EVER!!!

We were just passing through Bonita Springs, we stumbled on Mel's Diner. Seating were fast and friendly. Service was great, and the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger is the Best I have ever tasted 👏🏻👏🏻

We had breakfast at Mel's Diner and it was very good. I had yogurt and muesli and fresh fruit that was served in a sundae glass and it looked just like a sundae! lol It was yummy! The fresh muffin was tasty too. My brother and his partner and I had mimosas with our breakfast and that was a very... More

Mel's is all about value. You get a good plate of food for a great price. We tried it for both dinner and breakfast and were not disappointed. The morning breakfast servers are classic. We had a real character, reminscent of "Flo". Lots of fun. It's a perfect go-to place where you leave feeling full and so will your wallet.

Having lived in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area for over ten years, I had the opportunity to eat at many great diners. Mel's Diner in Bonita Springs (Southwest Florida) is equally good to the great diners in SJ. They offer a very diverse menu, serving breakfast all day for those who care. One of my favorites is their Cheeseburger... More

Very good diner, comparable to those back in NJ. Very large selection of food. Lots of comfort food. Been there numerous times and haven't had a bad meal yet. Can get very crowded during the season.

We had read good reviews of Mel's restaurants and we were not disappointed. The layout is so stylish and authentic and there is a real personal touch to the atmosphere. The staff are polite and the food is of real high quality and great value - most main meals come with a Soup or salad starter and still cost $10... More

Nice home style food that is always good. Have nice specials and specialty meals around the holidays. We are never disappointed at Mel's. Only thing that I don't like is that there is always a line to get in. That's means it's good and affordable.

Can't beat a diner with an extensive menu, great prices, great people. Our server Jerry was terrific. We needed to switch booth but we didn't want to switch server. That was taken care of in an instant. Everything we ordered was great and the price even better. My daughter loved her baby back ribs and I truly enjoyed my Salmon... More

We were in Florida all last week. We ate out 4 times and two of those times were at Mels! My husband loves the French Fries with Gravy and everything else is great too. The Staff is always friendly and makes you feel like you are at home. Come hungry as you get a lot of food for your money.
