I was met at the door by charming friendly people. My order was correct and ready to go when I got there. The steak and egg special was delicious !!! Only $4.99 the new york strip was tender and well seasoned the red potato hash browns with green onions was crisp, hot and savory . My eggs were cooked as I requested. I got my order to go but I wished I had eaten there. The place was full of laughter and music ( at 9 am ). The staff deserve their tips. I will return and recommend Mels to others ! Special thanks to Marissa for processing my order so fast (my food was still hot when I got home.)

Pros: good food friendly service great specials

Cons: parking limited (but also an indication of populararity)

For Roseville all-nighters, you have two options: Denny's or Mel's Diner...you decide! This Mel's seems to have better service than the one in Rocklin, but the food isn't as good here.

Burgers...they're okay if you compare them to Denny's, but compared to non-24-hour-joints, they're pretty mediocre at best.

Chicken Quesadilla...it's usually pretty good (I get it on a wheat tortilla) but the salsa leaves a lot to be desired (think Pace with less flavor).

Love Mel's! It's much better than Denny's and IHOP and I love watching the people there. Drunk people watching other people more drunk than they are is always a plus. It's fun to go here after a night out, but try to get there before 2 or else expect to wait.
I love their tuna melts. Even though the portions are nothing to write home about.
Although the service is kind but somewhat slow because they get really busy really fast especially at night, the food at Mel's is not fabulous (Exceptions to the rule: Hot fudge sundae. Cheese fries. Solid.). It's a great "Where to go I'm drunk and starving

I've probably been to this restaurant more times than any other. After an all-nighter as a college student this was the place to go. Great atmosphere, friendly faces and service, they even remember your name! The place is usually packed with people of all ages, and around 2 AM its packed with cops (I've come here all hours of the night). All the food I've tried so far is good and the icecream sundae is piled so high its a wonder it doesn't topple over on the way to the table. The food doesn't drip in grease like Denny's food does. Great place for a Sunday brunch. Also, beware that this is the only Mel's out of the three around the Sacramento area that is open 24hrs. My favorites are the mel-fries dipped in ranch and their sandwiches or chicken strips. I've always been too full to try the shakes, but friends say they're delicious.

Cons: nothing I can think of

this is the king of 24 hour restaurants wherease dennys is the macdonalds of 24 hour restaurants. The blue plate platters are an awesome value where you get a three course meal for about 7 dollars not including tax, tip, and drink :) Their shakes are awesome too, every single time we go there we try something new and have never been dissapointed. TRY THE FRIED ZUCHINNI SPEARS
