This is a fine neighborhood restaurant. Their hot dogs are classic, but I recommend a bit more exploration. They have nice salads and sandwiches, and I have had some good fish there. The bar is often rocking, and the overall atmosphere is friendly and busy. The hostesses and wait staff are hopping, they take very good care of the customers.... More

We love Melito's. Huge lunch variety available. Excellent hot dogs (the junk dog has chili, cole slaw, onion, mustard, and cheese). The sandwiches are great. And the soups and salads are wonderful too. Melito's is one of our favorite Richmond establishments. I highly recommend it!

This is a great little place with nice ambience, excellent service and good predictable food every time. With few original restaurants these days, its nice to go to a place that isn't a chain and has its own personal style. Plus, a former American Idol contestant worked here, so it has its own claim to fame. Enjoyable place to meet... More

I love clubs and look forward to it every time we visit Richmond. If we lived there, I would eat there every week. Wonderful place and the back room almost fit all of us.

As a married couple and a family, we average eating at Melito's about once a month. Only once, in many years, have I had a questionable meal (Talipia Wrap). This experience was a one-off and chalked up to an experiment gone wrong. Every resturant should get one mulligan. Over the last fifteen years we have tried most everything on the... More

Melitos has a great happy hour- $1.50 rail drinks from 3-9pm on Fridays. However, they reduced the hours without any notice (we go pretty frequently). That was the only thing keeping us going there because the service is very poor and the food is only average. They need better appetizers to go with their drinks, there aren't enough options. We'll... More

On a recent trip back home to Richmond, we decided to go back to an old favorite....Melito's. I usually get a salad but this time, the salmon sandwich called me. It was outstanding. Served warm on a roll with fries, this meal was filling and delicious. The service is always good and this place is always busy. I recommend that... More

My Dad, age 90, and I were out running errands and stopped by this restaurant for lunch. It has always been good but it has been years since our last visit. I am afraid I stuck with an old reliable world famous hot dog. The service was prompt. The waitress never let the drink go dry. The fries were crisp... More

Went to lunch with my boss at Melito's the other day. It is a fun place to grab a quick lunch. It has a bar atmosphere with great servers and good food. They were very quick with getting our order to us and the dog's were very good. This place would be a great place for a quick lunch or... More

I had the club sandwich, my wife had the chicken salad. Both were very good. The french fries are the big, thick kind and were great. Service was pretty good. The place isn't very big, and I hear it is packed for lunch. We went about 3pm on a Sunday, which was perfect. Prices are very reasonable. Would definitely go... More
