Mel's did a great job of serving lunch to our party of 9 on a recent weekday noon. My turkey burger was well prepared on a nice fresh bun. Others said their food was also good. The server also provided separate checks without any fuss,...More

I wouldn't give this restaurant a chance if I wasn't told by my friend that they serve the best breakfast in the area. Its small blue building doesn't really look tempting from outside. But when I entered and saw the cosy interior I changed my...More

We stayed in Beatty, and started our day early by eating at Mel's. Classic little diner. Portions we're very large and everything we had was tasty. It is not very big and by the time we left at 730 it was pretty busy. The server...More
