When in Hollywood it is worth stopping by Mel' s Drive In for a burger, shake or even a salad. The place takes a bad rap at times because of the service and paying to park. First the service was good and our server Mario was attentive and took care of us. We had no problems with the service. As for parking, it is L.A. and anywhere you go you will pay for parking (it took me a few trips to understand this).
The food was good as we had a club sandwich and southwest chicken salad. Both were tasted good and were filling. I recommend the banana split for dessert and my wife had the apple pie with ice cream. The slice of pie was huge and sweet. My split was gone within seconds and was prepared perfectly.
The restaurant is filled with history and pictures from famous visitors. For quarter you can play music fro different eras. Stop by and have some fun.
