“Great atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

I recently visited Meluchi's at the end of June with 16 of my students on a study abroad trip. We went for dinner and received great service and enjoyed the atmosphere. The restaurant is in a large open air pavilion allowing the Mayan mountain breeze to blow through and keep you cool. We all had a platter consisting of flautas, tacos, tostadas, and papusas. It was really good Mexican style food. It is definitely a place I plan to go back and visit on my own.

The fajitas were fantastic! They extended happy hour to 9pm. And the manager came over to hang out with us and recommend activities to do around town.

“Quesadillas, margaritas, buckets of beers, and a great DJ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Meluchi's, aka the Graveyard Lounge, is one of the few spots that we visit weekly. The food is great, the service is impeccable, the drinks are strong, and the music is usually perfect for the crowd. We've definitely made it our post-game hangout every Friday. They also do cool dance events, like the Neon Paint Rave that was last month, and I think they'll have an EDM party there soon.

You can't go wrong with the drinks there. They are the only place I know of that has the beer towers, which has enough beer for a group. They also have specials on beer buckets. I'm particular to their rum and cokes, which they make well. The food, which is a Latin American/Caribbean mix(Belizean), hits the spot.

It seems like this last month has found us there at least twice a week, if not more. They have a new in-house DJ that really plays for the crowd. I know how to rank a DJ, and he really stacks up. Is every song a song I like? No, but somebody always loves it, and once the crowd gets dancing, he goes through all the genres, keeping the floor packed. Best part is that he doesn't talk. There's a joke in the local community that since most (wannabe) dj's talk over most songs, it saves us 1000's because we just have our own bonfires, and mix our own music. Now, thanks to DJ Dime, we're getting out more. Do I thank him, or curse him? Thanks, DJ Dime!

Definitely hit Meluchi's for drinks and food if you get a chance. See you there!

“Great Bar Food & Drinks.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Well it's a good place to have drinks and have a snack. On the down side they change cook a lot meaning they will never have one standard of taste and display. An too much YOUNG people hang around the Bar.
