Great food and great service. Food came fast and the portions were large. There was a line to get in but it went fast.

Huevos Rancheros....very good.....Presentation was OK. Pancakes? WOW! Huge and tasty. One order will feed two easily. The Benedict items we ordered came out very hard boiled, but they offered to redo with moderate success. This place is hopping. Our server was knocking it out and...everywhere. Really efficient but constantly tossing loaded dishes on the table (NOISY). Great food. Efficient but unpolished hardworking server. Still....worth a visit. Owner cares.More

This breakfast-lunch spot is a Racine favorite. The staff always make us feel like we are special guests. Portions are enough for 2-3 meals so bring a huge appetite or plan on taking food home. Meli’s is a really comfortable place to meet friends, socialize...and relax. Unpretentious and generous, Meli’s will warm your heart and fill your belly.More

every week me and my friends meet for breakfast. the portions are huge and good. just about everyone leaves with a container of food from their plate. the food is so good, their omelets are the best I ever had, never browned. try their banana...split waffle , it is a big waffle that has fresh berries ice cream and gobs of whipped cream with chocolate and berry syrup dried over it. its only open for breakfast and lunch. the hours are 6am to 2pm. they are always busy but the crowdes move fast. come between breakfast and lunch and have a fantastic brunch. the cooking is like food your mother made you.More

There is a reason why this is the top rated breakfast location. The food is great (Really liked the pumpkin pancakes). Large portions.

The fresh OJ is the best. The pancakes are very good and very big. The stavros combo you can’t go wrong and the potatoes are good not too greasy. The only draw back is the word is out and they get busy so go early...or prepare to wait. The wait staff is excellent. The prices are good and the portions are goodMore

Meil's is a really pleasant place to eat with a large group or just a few friends. They offer a variety of entres including traditional, Greek, and Southwestern offerings. My friends & I often try new things and have never been disappointed. The Potato Pancakes,...one of my favorites, are the Polish type and not they heavily graded and refined German type, just like my mom made. One of the best things is that even at busy times (Sunday Mornings after 10:00), they are efficient and with as many as 10 groups ahead of us, we often got seated in less than a half hour. However, having such great food and service, makes them popular and well worth the wait.More
