This was the 3rd time we have stopped to eat at Mel's Diner Part II. We enjoy the retro atmosphere and there are lots of great menu choices.

We've eaten here many times over the years, however, over the last few visits we noticed that food quality seems to have diminished. The food lacked flavor. I hope they improve soon.

We eat there very often and just love the waitstaff. We mostly eat breakfast items after a night out on the town. They have great biscuits and white gravy .

We both ordered the chicken fried steak and, since they advertise as having the "World's Best Biscuits", of course we had to order a biscuit to try too. The biscuits... More

Every time we stop hear it's good. The food is very good. Surprising for a diner. The prices are extremely reasonable and the plates are plentiful. Eating here feels like you have stepped back in time. It has a great retro feel. The service is always friendly and fast. If you like good old fashioned comfort food with a southern... More

The staff is very friendly. Orders are taken quickly and food prepared in a timely manner. We always enjoy our visits to Mel's Diner. The old signs and memorabilia are quite interesting to look at.
