Mel's Burger Bar
Posted by Anonymous on 12/22/2010
I was eager to try out Mel's when they first opened. Our server was very nice, however, the food was sub par. This place is supposed to specialize in burgers, right? No, seriously. The burger was small, didn't include fries AND I had to pay extra for sauce. The onion strings were hard to chew and felt stale. The food wasn't horrible, but the burgers were nothing special -- I actually prefer the burgers from Vareli across the street. For a place with "Burgers" in its name, they're not doing a great job. Sorry Mel's.

Burgers were way overpriced and not that big. Fries cost extra adding insult to injury. Service is very poor, they made me wait at the bar for 20 minutes when there were plenty of visible tables available. I ordered coke and a beer from bar, left a $1 tip, and bartender just sneered at me like it was not enough. I asked for my burger well done and got it back medium rare.

Can I just say how obsssessed I am with Mel's?? I'm a senior and only wish this place had been there the past 3 years! Here's the deal: Food = delicious (burgers, fish tacos and spinach dip are my faves). Boozy shakes are unique and amaaazing. Only drawbacks- drinks are a little expensive other than after 11pm (then they do $3 beers and $5 wells). Also the bartenders are a little slow...but the place is cool, fun and food is best in the hood!

Waited half an hour for a salad and French toast. Manager ignored me and then was affirmatively rude.
