Fun place to go for Hot August Nights and for a late night snack. If you remember American Graffiti, you'll love this place. Diner food with ambiance.

I looked out our hotel window in Reno and in the distance saw the original Mel's Diner. Well, of course, we just HAD to go check it out. We had already eaten, but apple pie and coffee sounded good. We walked there, it was afternoon, so not busy. The staff was courteous and helpful and seemed to enjoy working there. The pie was yummy, I had mine without ice cream and my husband with. Generous serving and the coffee was great too. A very nice experience for us.

Good for a fast breakfast, lunch or dinner. Inexpensive large portions. Lots of grease! Not very healthy but people in attendance seemed to enjoy. Attracts a typical reno clientele. Seniors and families.

I highly recommend Mel's Diner. The waitress was so friendly and great service. The food is excellent! I love all the nostalgic pictures and old metal signs. When I get back to Reno I am definitely going again!! Thanks for a wonderful meal.
