Mehlman's reminds me of my grandmas cooking. Everything I've tried is delicious. Turkey with mashed potatoes, roast beef sandwich with gravy, fried fish with macaroni and cheese; all amazing! Prices are very reasonable and the selection of food is decent.

The serving lines move along at an acceptable pace. Several selections in each category. Our family of 7 total (without soft drinks) was under $70.

I remember the Horn & Hardart Cafeteria in New York. This place cannot hold a candle to it. You get on a line and disinterested servers hand you the food. Then you find your own table. Service is non-existent. I never saw a waiter. Never got water. And the food was mediocre at best. The Lasagna was a blob spread... More

A good food place with lots of choices. Food quality was very good along with desserts and services given. Gets crowded when a bus stops there but worth the money.

Great homemade food prepared fresh daily Tuesdays through Sundays. Although it is a cafeteria it is nothing like any cafeteria you have ever been through in your life. If you are elderly they will have someone assist you. If you love Prime Rib they have it and they know how to do right and their homemade pies are to die... More

As we were driving along the Interstate, I noticed a very distinctive script sign for a cafeteria. It looked like something out of the 1960's and made me a little nostalgic, so after reading the reviews here, we stopped for an early Sunday dinner. Stepping inside was like taking a little trip to the past- you could tell things had... More

We live about an hour from Mehlman's location and stop here when we shop in this area. We have always liked the casual style and cafeteria choices. On our most recent visit, however, we were very disappointed in the service. We interacted with 7 or 8 of the staff (food line, cashier, floor servers), and we did not see one... More

Stopped off the interstate while passing through due to the high ratings on Trip Advisor. I just don’t get it…??? It was a cafeteria…stand in line… buy mass produced food by the piece.. the taste and texture of the food was mediocre at best. Sorry y’all, I was thoroughly disappointed.

I have been going to Mehlman's Cafeteria with my family for over 40 years; when we were kids, it was always our "Sunday drive" trip. The prices are extremely reasonable, the staff is always friendly, but, most importantly, the food is always delicious. I have NEVER had a bad meal at Mehlman's, and no matter how picky you may be,... More
