    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)?

    Had the Corned Beef Hash and French Toast. The waitress seemed a bit unfriendly. Could not get her to bring us the check for like 15min. In the end we went to another waitress at the front desk to pay

    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.

    Love the blt & the lemonade, but don't forget to say that you want your burger cooked medium-rare or your burger won't be juicy enough !!!

    First time here during the day- $4 mimosas! Sliders are bomb! Great people watching, great for the drunk crowd when all the bars close.

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