    Get a burger and milkshake these they do right! That's ALL they do right. You will be disappointed with everything else on the menu, order something else and you will leave feeling ripped off.

    There is absolutely nothing special here. Eating here is a basically just a novelty. I had the worst cheeseburger I've ever had in my life here. But besides that, I guess it's a cute place.

    Great music, cool joint. But don't order the pumpkin pie unless you like disappointment. Was easily the smallest piece of pie I've ever bought and I heard from my friends that its usually smaller

    Breakfast is average, but fresh! Coffee isn't the best, but acceptable with sweets. Staff VERY friendly and helpful. :). Not too expensive considering location.

    Parking is easy here. Parking lot right next door to the restaurant. However you do have to pay 2.50bucks. So make sure you get validated or you'd be paying 10-20 bucks.

    Nearly all tables have jukeboxes with a great selection of songs! Nothing beats eating burgers and drinking milk shakes while listening to "I Fought The Law"...

    I have been going to the valley Mel's for 15 years. This one has HORRIBLE service. He ran passed us, dropping off the plate without ever pausing to let us ask for anything. Not coming back.
