We look forward to eating at Mehlman's whenever we are in the area. As a matter of fact, we've actually driven there just to eat at this cafeteria. Food is always good. And dessert is out of this world! The biggest problem will be deciding...what to choose....it's all great. Great customer service.More
We had gone years ago and there was always a line out the door. The place has aged and the clientel has aged or died. The food was tasteless and the decor was outdated. We were very sorry to have choosen this place and left...quickly. We had a variety of food and each dish had a lack of flavor.More
If you want a fine meal like grandma used to make Mehlman's is for you! We ate there on a Sunday evening shortly before closing yet there was a great selection of excellent food! Very vintage 1970's in appearance and style of meal service. The...website has excellent directions to the restaurant.More
A step back In time. Stopped on a Sunday afternoon. Great fried chicken, out of this world tapioca pudding. Loved the yeast rolls. greefree
green beans could have used more seasoning and the chicken pot pie a little more chicken.
We have eaten at this cafeteria many times when we are in the area. They are definitely a fixture in the area. They always have a good variety of main course, vegetables, pies, cakes, and salads to choose from. All are your basic American comfort...food choices.
If you want a good basic meal I highly recommend Melman's Cafeteria.More
Quite by accident, I found Mehlman's (pronounced Mail mans) Cafeteria on our bus group's way back from Ark Encounter/Creation Museum.
I could just say WOW, but an explanation is needed for that superlative.
You know something is going on there, when you pull into a...football field-sized parking lot! And most of the spaces are filled!
You know you're gonna be in a line, but the aromas that you take in will add a couple pounds to your girth before you even hit the food stations.A full list of the day's offerings are spelled out for you.
You grab a tray, put it on the railing, and the fun begins! The first encounter is with a ton of dessert goodies. This fat boy couldn't resist a raspberry -looking wedge of yummyness, then the almond crusted salmon found it's way to my ownership, I said hello to a great looking cole slaw, and then completed the feast with syrupy Pepsi. Love syrupy Pepsi! You see, there are no loser selections here! If it wasn't for my wife restricting my diet, Im would still be there!
Making the visit to this quaint place even more enjoyable was the old-fashioned tables, chairs, and wallpaper. I felt like I was at Gramma's! And not a single grumpy cashier or attendant! You would think that after putting up with hundreds of people each day, it would wear on their nerves, but no, everyone was friendly there!
Perhaps I will regret posting this review because more people may be in front of me in line next time around;good things should be made known to good people.More
Prices have, unfortunately, increased enough since last summer that M.C. is now $$.
We had a) meat loaf, mashed potatoes, candied sweets, a roll, side salad, and b) lasagna with one side. A soft drink, and a water. $19+ (Plus small tip - they don't...serve you, of course, but they clear table.) I previously made comparison to Army mess hall on basis of cafeteria style. Comparison works for the food as well.
I will still stop once a year based on unique experience. At least most items are not deep fried. (A note: They don't make even the meatloaf in house. I could see they took a thick slice off of a dense, preformed "ball" of "meat loaf". I suppose Sexton is main supplier, or Sexton's low cost competitor. They have two lines going when it's busy. I guess it is mainly a sort of food disbursing system.)More
