A really nice place with good food (and lots of it). Spent our last night in San Fransisco here.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2008

Just come back from a trip to San Fran and went to Mel's twice. We love this place with it's 50's music and decor it brings back the great days of the 50's diner scene.

Food is good and plentiful and the milk shakes are to die for but the icing on the cake for us is the Cherry Pie and ice cream - Mmmm, yummy !!.

This Geary Blvd site is definately better than the ones on Van Ness & Lombard and parking is a lot easier.

If you visit SF then you just have to go to a Mel's just for the experience.
