Great traditional diner with booths and lots of retro signs and décor. Extensive menu of traditional American cooking including burgers, steaks, pot roast, meatloaf, chillidogs etc. All very reasonably priced with a great atmosphere suitable for all with lovely friendly staff . We keep going back for more!

My boys loved the burgers, I mean really loved the burgers. The surf and turf I ordered was alright, nothing amazing, but I didn't think the $16 price tag would bring an amazing filet and lobster tail. Cheap margaritas and bloody marys kept the bill reasonable. The left coast chicken was very good, and the boys loved their dessert (key... More

I had the Chicken Fajita Omelette and it was fantastic, I couldn't finish it. My hubby had the Eggs Benedict, cleaned his plate. They also... More

Want good food at a reasonable price? Mel's is that place. Everytime I go there it's consistent. This time it was the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich with a chocolate shake. If you like either of these two go to Mel's. If you are there during the winter months expect to wait for a table. It's worth the wait.
