I've been eating at Melvyn's since they bought the place in the '80s and ate there for years before then. The charbroiled burgers are the best. I especially like being able to get a whole wheat bun. The French fries are great but I alternate between the homemade onion rings and the sweet potato fries. Poboys are good, too. And fried chicken Thursdays... a special treat.

By the way, they moved from North 18th years ago. Now, they are off Oliver Road near Tower Drive on the back side of the old mall. Not easy to find but worth the effort.

Excellent char-grilled burgers and steaks... layed back atmosphere! The wait staff are college students. It can get pretty noisy at times there are multiple TV's with different sports events going all at the same time.

Many times when an "old favorite" moves, the quality and mystique is lost! Not so wtih Melevyn's! They continue to serve their homemae burgers and tasty fries. A local hangout with friendly atmospherer. You will go again and again once you discover it~

Melvyn's is a Monroe tradition. This was my first visit in over a decade (and also my first visit at the new location). The cheeseburger was perfect and the atmosphere is laidback and friendly. My entire lunch- cheeseburger, fries, and a soda was $8 and some change. You can't get a fast food burger that cheaply anymore and Melvyn's makes a quality hamburger. Highly recommend.

Melvyn's is a small restuarant in Monroe that is frequented by the locals and has been a favorite spot for years. The french fries are crispy and tasty and some of the best I've had. The burgers are hand made (can tell because the meat is not always "round" and never a uniform shape). Get there early on a weekday because it gets full quickly. They have a "lite" burger with apples as a side for those who are eating healthy. Prices are very reasonable.
