Amazing fried chicken and mac and cheese! Well let me rephrase, amazing everything! We look forward to eating at Mel's on the way back from NYC! It is the perfect ending to a culinary adventure! At first glance most would pass it by, but you would be sorry! The service is friendly and inviting, even the other diners (regulars) like to chat with you! Do yourself a favor and have lunch or dinner at Mel's!!!

Had take out fried chicken for the football game. It was fast, very fairly priced and excellent. One of the best places to eat fried chicken. Staff very friendly

I wasn't wowed like some of the other reviews, but the folks were very friendly and the fried chicken was excellent. On the other hand, the mac and cheese was dry (maybe reheated?), and unfortunately they didn't have the sweet potato pie. In any case, worth the stop and better than going to a chain restaurant. Honest food.

Had the fried chicken, Mac n cheese, greens, stewed tomatoes, and potatoe pie. Everything was amazing. Kind of a hole in the wall, but so worth the wait. Highly recommend! This place puts Sylvia's in nyc to shame! Best chicken ever.
