Cash is King here. Great friendly staff, quick service and good food. Easy to find in town, with few places to eat. Nice menu with good old familiar choices. Worthy of your stopping here.

A great place for a good breakfast. We ordered pancakes, tasted delicious! Good price! Only keep in mind that you only can pay with cash, they have an ATM available though.

What a nice surprise! This is a cool little diner. The service is super friendly, the place is clean and the food is really good. We had a chili omelet with hash browns, biscuits and gravy. The portions are generous and reasonably priced.

Great breakfast and biscuits, many European customers, wonderful service. I thought the parking lot was empty until I realized everyone parks on the shady side of the building. Two tables at least were Europeans...in Beatty, NV!! All American breakfast diner like the "olden days"!

Stayed across the highway and it was recommended at check in. The waitress looked rather unhappy, but service was quick and the food was great.

My husband and I ate two meals here at Mel's. Our first initial meal was for lunch. I ordered a grilled chicken breast sandwich on wheat bread thinking that it was a fairly generic food item and one that takes some doing to mess up. I took one bite into that sandwich and I was amazed at the flavorful taste.... More

We stayed across the street at the Death Valley Inn which does not offer breakfast. They told us about Mel's Diner so we went there for breakfast. Although it was early on a Sunday, they were busy since a large group of motorcyclists came (they had a reservation). I think they had extra help available because of the big group.... More

Excellent service and food in a clean and tidy diner. Thankfully not part a chain of anonymous diners that are swamping America.

The pictures were great, the menu was good, great service. Buser dropped the glasses and picked them up and placed them where they could be used instead of recleaning them. The manager knew this happened as well.

The waitress was friendly and very helpful. She really worked hard. The portions are large. You can share a breakfast as far as quantity is concerned. I took the one egg with English muffin, which was plenty. The coffee is good. Recommended by the people there for good reason.
