At Mehlman's It's Always 1978!! This Place is a Treasure!

I'm a vegetarian and find it difficult for options here but I simply adore Mehlman's. My parents would take me here as a kid and I have fond memories of the place. Good home cooking for cheap. I stick to sides dishes but there are so many options here .. Like school cafeteria for grown ups. If... read more

This restaurant is 45 minutes from our house but we eat there all the time. There are always buses coming in there. It is the best cafeteria that we have ever eaten at. My husband and I love it. We go there for special occasions and take our friends there when they are visiting. We highly recommend this eating place... More

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
