The food is better at Denny's! – Gross! Mel's is apparently all about the ambience and has forgotten the real motive behind visiting a restaurant - eating. The burgers are greasy, the french fries blah. The cheese in my grilled cheese wasn't even melted. The in-sight cook shack is kinda cool but not when you're staring at your food sitting up there getting cold. Might serve Mel's well to pare down the menu and concentrate on getting a few things right.
Great place to have a breakfast – I enjoyed visiting this place. It was just how I imagined an American Diner to be.
The food and drinks were nice and the service was efficient.
The only downside was the valet parking, my car was parked approx. 2 metres from where I dropped it off!!!
the hot spot – mel's is pricey. some food isn't that great. (such as the cheddar fries, and the chicken strips) i usually order myself a bacon cheeseburger because the bacon is hickory smoke thick. other than that, it's mediocre. service is nice, and it's a place to people watch at nite because most of the customers are tirerd out club hoppers or concert goers.
Worth the wait – Great omelets, but the weekends are a long wait so be prepared! Small dining area, so you can't help but get to know your neighbor!
mels is good! – burgers, the old fave!
grilled, on a great bun, fries, and a coke!
its a combo that is just right.
Comfort Spot – Mel's is a good choice for a low-key meal. I've enjoyed dining here many times late in the evening or early in the morning. Fun place with good food and service.
mel's is nice – This place rocks! look out denny's! Mel is here to stay! The have the coolest environment and the biggest menu..you food comes fast and you leave with a smile
Hearty & Good – The food at Mel's is tasty and filling. Fun atmosphere as well.
Best place to eat 24/7 – This place is great for grub anytime of the day. There's always a crowd and it's the place to be. All the servers are unigue in thier own way, but always aiming to please. The menu has anything from steak to meals as simple as a hot dog and fries. And for your entertainment you can select music from the small jukeboxes located at every table. Check this place out sometime after a long night at a club on sunset!
Happy tummey – You leave happy. This place is better than denny's and cheaper then jerry's. The menu is huge and all the waiters are nice and fast. The parking is available and i usually go here alot when im hungry and on sunset. No complaints here
