    Back at Mel's for the morning Steak & Egg special with redskin potatoes and pancakes for $6.99! Think I'll grab a Chocolate Banana Shake while I'm at it. Great food, great, friendly service.

    Awesome waitress, Brandee, brought us samples of strawberry shake and malt. Both are great!

    The porkchops n mash was a great late-night comfort meal. BF had meatloaf - tasted too much like breadcrumbs for us... Dont forget quarters for the tabletop jukebox!

    Steak, eggs, taters and a pancake $6.99 (certain days) ! Delicious! Really swell 50's theme 😬

    I got the Jackman. Pretty good. Very filling. Santa Fe skillet, awesome. San Francisco scramble, good. Deep fired golden shrimp, alright.

    Usually they have fast and friendly service but today is just not there day. After trying to wave down 2 ppl that clearly looked at me but ignored me, a friendly older waitress came and took my order.

    I don't know if it's just me...but I feel like Gizmo from the movie, Gremlins when I eat here after midnight. "Bright light, bright light!" Bring your sunglasses! Damn! Glad I don't multiply...
