We were not from the area and stopped in just because it was convenient to a meeting we needed to go to. The food is awesome. It is a place where you order at the counter. Menu is very easy to read and has a nice selection. We decided to share a 1/2 rack of ribs and it came with... More

Great food, plentiful portions, if you don't like the service, it's your own fault (self service) and worth a visit. Skip the trendy touristy expensive places and eat at melvins!!

Melvin's BBQ is a great place for BBQ. The food is great and reasonably priced. The sauce is mustard based and awesome. Highly recommend.

Food was good but service was poor. Restaurant ran out of forks and spoon bin was empty. The staff member's attitude was less than helpful. Expected better service.

Food was good, but for those of us that aren't into mustard based barbecue, this isn't the place for you. My family loved the sides and the meat was cooked well, but we just didn't care for any of the sauces. They need to add a sweet sauce and I will up there rating. Not everyone likes mustard.

popular for the area, but pricey for BBq in my opinion. 2ppl for pork sandwich/fries and drinks 24.00. Go to Home Team Bbq for better quality

The ribs were great but not much of a place to eat inside. More like a fast food restaurant. You ordered at a window and took your food to one of a few booths to sit. It seemed that they did a lot of drive through business.

It was take out order and got the slab of ribs and it was not good. It was dry and like it was microwaved to reheat. The sweet potato soufle was very good but definitely not the ribs and that is what we came in for southern ribs.

Not a fancy restaurant, but wanted to try some BBQ while we were in the area. Huge portions and the onion rings were awesomely unique, they were great. We tried all of the sauces except the hot sauce and they were all to die for. We loved the southern red sauce so much that we bought a half gallon to... More

Recently got lunch at Melvin's. Very busy but order was still made quickly and accurately. Each side dish is big enough for two people. The smoked turkey came from a real fresh turkey breast and not a slimy processed loaf, and was excellent. Two of us shared that and took the half rack of ribs, and some left over sweet... More
