    Bring your quarters and you can take a spin on the juke box.

    Open 24 hours every night. So stop by when everyone else is closed.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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.
