Great service-short wait, great prices-meals come with soup and salad and are enough for two people or two meals total. We had meatloaf and roast and were awesome. Loved the décor and clean inside and out. We would return if in area again.

This retro themed restaurant was suprisingly good. Short wait, but good service. Had a cheeseburger it was excellent. Very crowded but it was snowbird season.

My husband and I have eaten at Mel's several times and NEVER been disappointed. Their roast turkey and dressing is great; the chicken noodle soup is very tasty and their home-made onion rings are large, crunchy and delicious.

Stopped here again on our last visit. Very expansive menu, almost overwhelming. Food is very good and prices are reasonable.
