Nice Atmosphere, Bad Food – Mel's is a classic tourist restaurant. I like the quirky servers, but the food is overpriced considering it's not fantastic. Last time I ate at Mel's for breakfast, I discovered that the small orange juice is the same size as the large orange juice, and being fresh-squeezed, it was quite pricey. The server explained that they when they serve the small orange juice, they are not supposed to fill it up all the way but they usually do anyway. If that is the case, they should just stick to the policy or only charge for the price of the small. I am always a little disappointed with the quality of the food at Mel's

Yech! – Went for late night food, got the "fish and chips", little frozen things that tasted nothing like fish with soggy fries. The malt was good, though, but overall overpriced and bad food.

Mel's Still Got the MOJO – I've been going to Mel's on Geary since I was 8-years-old and it still has that 50s diner atmosphere. The city has more than one Mel's Drive In but the one on Geary still rocks. This is a great place to show out of towners what the old drive in diners really looked like and felt. It's also a must for kids. Try out a mushroom burger and pineapple shake--ain't nothin' like them found anywhere else.

Back to the 50's! – Mel's Drive-In is a nice place to grab a bite to eat, especially late at night when most of the other restaurants have closed for the night. As one can imagine, the restaurant's atmosphere has that 1950's feel with the jukeboxes playing the oldies and American Graffiti movie memorabilia almost everywhere. The service can be very slow during the late hours and wait for a booth can be long. (The wait for a regular table or a seat at the counter is usually shorter.) The menu is basically diner food, like burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes, etc.. Nothing really special. But it is a good place to hang out with friends at night after a long day.

Hmm... to the tummy – Plenty of varieties for food, open late, and the after spot for most nightclubs. Thats the way to go for me if I go out at night. One down side... sometimes the wait is LONG....
