CONSISTENCY & QUALITY IS THE KEY TO MELVYNS..BEST BURGER IN MONROE !!! One thing that impresses me is there appears to be little or no employee turnover

I haven't been hear in years and loved the old location. The food was below average, and the staff obviously wasn't concerned about doing their job.. No wonder they were empty at noon on a Saturday!

Melvyn's is a part of the dining culture in Monroe. It is not fancy, but it is fun. The food is not great, but it is good. The décor is not classy, but it is homey and comfortable. Recently my wife and I dropped by and grabbed a booth. I had a chile burger and fries and a small pasta... More

Melvyn's is a tradition hangout that has changed little over the years. The hamburgers and fries are great, having that home cooked taste from their grill. They also have daily specials but to me it's the hamburgers that make this place special

Went in for lunch. Had the Mega burger and was very pleased with the taste, size and bun. I tasted just like I cooked it on my grill at home. Fries are good skin on with sea salt. Tea was ok. It's a bar and grill type location. Nothing outstanding for decor. Server was friendly. I would eat here again... More

Nice atmosphere. The positives stop there. The food was flavorless, the burger was cold, the waiter was inattentive and forgot parts of the order, and worst of all, after the kitchen staff placed our plates on the bar the waiter stacked them, meaning whatever was on the bar was now on three of our four meals. Draft beer machine also... More

We go to this little "hole in the wall" restaurant quite often. It is one of the best "super" casual places in the area . I have had the bugers which are really good along with the ribeye steak. But to me the best this place has to offer is the hamburger steak. It is stuffed with onions and cheeses... More

Went there for lunch, got a cheese burger with fries. Food came out quick and was good. Was affordable and I'd recommend this place if you want a quick bite thats better than fast food.

I've been eating at Melvyn's since they bought the place in the '80s and ate there for years before then. The charbroiled burgers are the best. I especially like being able to get a whole wheat bun. The French fries are great but I alternate between the homemade onion rings and the sweet potato fries. Poboys are good, too. And... More
