Our family grew up eating at Mel's. I no longer live in the area but visit my mother often and it's been such a part of our family that we eat there every time I visit. My mother is in her 70's and has eaten here before I was born. I even take a few quarts of their sauce home with me when I leave town. The food is always consistent and it's one of the few restaurants that still includes a salad with the price of your dinner.
Mel's spaghetti and meatballs with a side of their famous fries... nothing is better!!!

You either love or hate their sauce. The original sauce from Mel Rigali has been kept in place. I love it and crave the spagetti and meatballs.
