Adequate food made by a hardworking, competent kitchen staff that is sadly undermined by an inattentive wait staff. More interested in getting side work done than in serving customers. I sad alone ignored at a table for too long, moved to

We stopped by the other night and had such a fun time! The only thing is that late at night, it gets so busy that there was a wait for a table. But we didn't mind. The milkshakes and the melburger were amazing! I had so much fun here.

Pros: Burger, Milkshakes

It's a great place to go alone if you're hungry! I dig it. The half chicken is really good... and the tuna salad is great.

I was very disappointed in my recent Mel's experience. I ordered the Corned Beef Hash and it was just bad. Aside from the fact that they cook it with green peppers in the hash and don't list that as an ingredient in the menu, the patty

Mel's makes some killer breakfasts. My favorites are the eggs and the OUT OF THIS WORLD hash browns. And as long as you're not on a diet, go for a vanilla coke (made the old-fashioned way, with syrup) or one of the delicious hand-made

Mel's has good food and a fun atmosphere that smacks of old Hollywood. Any of their omelets with their mushrooms are incredible and a must have. This is a great place to hangout with friends late at night.

We have seriously eaten at Mel's perhaps more than 100 times. It is very close to where we live and always really easy and reliable. They provide free valet parking, which is nice, and we always just tip the guy a buck.\r

Cons: getting pricey

Mel's is in the thick of things and truly open 24 hours, which makes a great spot for people watching. It's usually packed, which can lead to poor service (inattentiveness, long waits, etc.). The food is greasy comfort food, which is what
