If I were a younger man I'd copy this place and open a Mehlman's in my hometown. I've been to this place 5 or 6 times, mostly for dinners after a funeral. The whole Ohio Valley is a depressed area. Most of the mobile young people move away, what's left is the old folks and those of the next generation... More

Food selections were the traditional cafeteria style choices at reasonable prices, but had more of the home cooking flavors versus canned or frozen prepared. To my surprise cabbage rolls were served which was a very generous portion and tasty. When we got there it was not busy, but within a few minutes the line was constant around the noon hour.... More

Mehlman's has some fantastic food for very reasonable prices. Always a good selection of tasty, freshly cooked food. My family enjoys dining in and ordering carry out frequently. The roast beef is juicy, the pork chops are tender, and the sides like the broccoli casserole are yummy.

I lived in this area for many years and know the owners and now third generation. This food is some of the best you will ever have. Homemade pies are delicious. Rolls and cornbread fabulous. Wonderful, plentiful hot coffee. You better get there early and fast or you will miss out on the homemade noodles and other delicious homemade goodies... More
