This was a great restaurant! It served home cooked meals. Great people. Wish they were still open. Now the building is the home to patricks burgers. Which has the best burgers! Stop in and try them!

Formerly Merle's now Patrick's Burgers. If you're a local or traveling on interstate 40, stop for the best burgers and fresh cut French fries around. Yummy. Great family friendly eatery. Not a pretentious place, just great waitstaff and management. We'll be returning soon.

On a road trip, we came through Alma and decided to stop at a local restaurant. We picked Merle's Steakhouse and was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the service was good and the atmosphere interesting with lots of taxidermy animals on the walls.

I live nearby, and know the owners well. She is an excellent baker. In fact the best kept secret of Merle's is the excellent pies and cinnamon rolls. The best is her homemade strawberry pie

Always thought it would be great to have a steak house in town, but it has been given many chances by my family and we have been disappointed on numerous occasions.
