One of the best BBQ sandwiches I've ever had!! And the mac and cheese!! Every time I drive by I have to fight the urge to go in and get something delish (and trust me it's hard when you live couple blocks away and drive by several times a day! :-) )! Yum!!!!

This was some of the best BBQ that we have had outside of our home state of NC. I grew up in Lexington NC BBQ capital and Melvin's is as good as that. If your in the area stop by and you will be pleased.

...eating at a Southern BBQ so have nothing to compare it to. But the ribs were tasty. I wasn`t very adventurous with my sides selection. Price was reasonable. Glad I tried the place.

The crew as friendly. The onion rings are great. Food is good, but a little pricey for what you get. Still, I recommend it!

We ate lunch at Melvin's, but had never heard of it before. We just ordered a BBQ sandwich and it was so good! We really relaxed in their laid back ambiance. We will definitely eat more meals here in the future!

Pulled BBQ was very dry as if it had been cooked a long time and been sitting under a heat lamp or reheated in a microwave. Hamburger was very thin and without much flavor, sides were meager in quantity and low in quality, prices were very high considering the meal. Our first visit will definitely be our last.

This restaurant is order at the counter and seat yourself. We prefer to take out. Everything is delicious - ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket....And the sides - we had the mac and cheese, baked beans (particularly delish), fried okra, cole slaw and sweet potato casserole. There was not a bit left over - the entire family gobbled it down.... More
