“Eat at Mel's”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

WE always try to stop by Mel's every time we go to Pigeon Forge. The staff is very friendly. The food is above average and the ice creme and milk shakes are great!

“Good Food”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Always have to make at least one stop to Mel's Diner. As always the food and service was great. My mom was walking with her cane so they made sure she was taken care of. The drink cups never became empty.

“Mel's Diner-Back to the 50's”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Since I lived in the 50's, this is a pleasant trip back. The food is good, service is friendly, portions are large. Save room for a sundae or a milk shake. Made the way they used to be. Casual dress.
