We went to Melitos on the weekend with another couple. We had the crab dip as an App and then each had salad or a sandwich. I had the Rueben. The Rueben was very good, probably the best Rueben I've had in VA. Very good food, server was great. Nice night and cost was reasonable. Recommended.

Good food, service, price, atmosphere. Busy but service was good. Tables slightly close together. Quiet, low noise level.

This restaurant has been around for many years, operated by the original owner and his nephew. Food is always good, the portions are significant and service is consistently prompt. Known for such things as great hotdogs with one of the best chilis around, homemade soups and supersized salads. It's almost like having a "Friday cheers" in your own neighborhood.

We started with crab dip with pita bread. Very tasty. Two of us had the seared salmon with asparagus, shared sweet potato fries. Salmon done perfectly. Very good fries! Our third had large serving of meatloaf with potatoes and asparagus. Said his was very good too. Service was fast and friendly. Nice time had by all.

I took my truck up to my son's garage to get it inspected and afterward he took me to Melito's for lunch. He said he a few other guys sometimes come here after work for a couple of beers and some appetizers, but he had never had lunch here. Well, we were both very impressed. Nice atmosphere, great service in... More

I came here on her recommendation as we both enjoy hot dogs. What a surprise. I like hot dog joints, but they are plain and drab. Not Melito's! Hardwood tables and booths, fancy bar, wood paneling - wow. Not a real big menu - but lots of choices with nice proportions, your money's worth but not overkill. My friend can... More

This used to be our go-to spot for yummy American comfort food but the most recent visit was a huge disappointment. Menu has completely changed and my wife's favorite as well as mine are gone! Current menu choices are boring and uninspired. I should have known things were going down hill when our favorite dessert was no longer being served... More

Melito's is great.....atmosphere, decor, food, drinks🍷. Always crowded at lunch and dinner. Known for their hotdogs but so much more to select from. The chicken salad club is delicious. Chocked full with crisp bacon, lettuce, tomato and yummy chicken salad....side of fries completes the meal. Easy to access from Three Chopt Rd or Parham Rd.

Have been here several times, usually excellent. Yet it was just pretty good on this visit. A weekday lunch, restaurant was crowded, sat at the bar......and the food quality and service just wasn't what it usually is. Will go back, just a little disappointed this trip.
