“Great atmosphere, great prices, good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

When we moved to this area, we were told, "You HAVE to try Mel's!" We were not disappointed. Over the past eight months since we moved here, we've probably been to Mel's as many times (7-8). We are never disappointed. There's almost never a wait, the service is always with a smile, the food portions are enormous and the food tastes great. My DH loves the burgers there and my personal fave is the fried fish. It is never greasy, always fresh, and again, it tastes good! You have to try the Mile High pie when you go, if you have room. Just seeing it on the plate is an experience. Plus the "diner" atmosphere is fun, relaxed and makes for an overall enjoyable dining experience. If you are visiting, I highly reccommend it.

“Great food, prices and service”

This is a favorite standard restaurant. We enjoy the Tuesday night fried chicken and really love the fried pickles. The desserts are huge.

I had breakfast there and for $11.95 I got greasy overcooked potatoes, cornbeef hash with no corn beef in it, thought it was going to be home made tasted like can. Eggs ok, coffee was ok and toast was good. I am cured there for breakfast. Should have been $3.99 .
