The Diner serves good basic pub food with hamburgers and sandwiches being their main fare. The place was very busy when we were there, so we had to be seated in the bar. This is not such a bad thing as it's a lot quieter there. Everyone's meal was tasty and the prices were very reasonable. Service was extremely fast for the number of people there at a lunch hour! I will definitely go back anytime I am in Jackson, Ca.

We stop by here when we are in the area. They have some of the best burgers around, tasty and juicy. Always crowded, especially on the weekends. It gets very busy and noisy, but service is very good. I had the French Dip and the wife a burger. Very good, even the onion rings and fries. We also love their peanut butter shakes! Definitely worth going back.

Mel's has had consistently good burgers and breakfasts for years. They try hard to give good service but it can get BUSY at times... a testament to their consistency and quality.

Mel's is always a must stop for us while in th Jackson area. The entire family enjoys their food.

We always enjoy going to Mel and Faye's when we're in Jackson. Although we've never been there for breakfast, our lunches and dinners have been consistently good. The service has been good, not great, but adequate, no complaints, really. We have liked the burgers and the steak dinners, but most recently we tried the salad bar. There was a great variety of salads, vegetables and lettuce. It was well stocked and everything looked good. You only get one trip, but the plates are large, so you can build yourself a very large salad. As others have said, it can be a busy, noisy place, but the good food and reasonable prices more than make up for that.
