We’ve been coming to Mel & Faye’s for 30 years, stopping after skiing at Kirkwood for classic diner food of Moo Burgers, fries and awesome shakes. There is nothing like it after a day on the slopes and a perfect stopping point for the many heading back to the Bay Area. Since we bought our vacation home in Jackson, we’ve been enjoying Mel & Faye’s during the spring/summer/fall too. We love the new location with its beautiful covered patio and plentiful parking (the biggest problem with the original location).
We prefer to order from the outside take-out window and sit on the patio, and we’ve never had a wait nor crowds outside (tip for those who noted this very popular place is sometimes crowded inside). And best of all, Mel & Faye’s is dog-friendly on the patio! Our Labs love getting a bit of Moo Burger and give it 4 paws up as well. We applaud Mel & Faye’s and other dog-friendly businesses that are making Amador County a great place for people traveling with 4-footed family members!
