We love Mel's and look forward to our visit every time we are back in Texas. I love their deep fried mushrooms and the chicken fried chicken salad with honey mustard dressing. The line-up at the door says it all. In addition to their menu, they offer daily specials.

Visited Mel's cafe in January 2013, as I wanted to try a real local experience and also heard of those giant burgers well service, quality of the food (meat) not to forget the size did not disappoint. You even get your name on the board if you finish it quickly enough.
I would not do that everyday but it was a bit of Texan experience !

Crowded. Everything is good and home cooked (in bacon drippings). Been going for years. Was the first to get a handwritten tablet gift certificate. Life is good at Mels

Mel's offers home cooking in a very casual atmosphere. We had chicken and dumplings and country fried steak. The servings are very generous. They start the meal with fresh baked cornbread and rolls.
