    From the bright lights to the location on the Sunset Strip, Mel’s continues to delight thousands of diners every year. Even the building’s imagery is iconic, having appeared in TV over the years. Read more

    Burgers, salads, fries etc. This is old fashion diner serves good food 24/7 in Hollywood. Jukebox's on the table for you to choose your music...more 50's, 60's, 70's etc. (may require coin)?

    One of my fave hang outs... I recommend: The steak & eggs (If ur hungry), the oreo cookie shake is incredible (if ur naughty), Chef's Salad (if ur good), juice bar smoothies (if ur really good) :-)

    If you'd like to have a potluck to eat, try the 3 sliders combo. It's good if you don't feel like having a full-blown burger for the night!

    For a healthy alternative, try the turkey hash & eggs with their homemade salsa and tortillas instead of toast. BYO breakfast burrito!

    Terrible customer service. Charged my card 3 times??? even after I asked "is that charging me?" And they said "no, don't worry." An $11 bill turned to $40. Told me to call next day and now no answer.
