We like to eat at Melvyn's on a regular basis. I really like the lunch specials especially the fried chicken. You can never go wrong with a Melvyn's burger or their hamburger steak. The french fries are very good too. Its a local restaurant with good food and service. We like supporting our local restaurants.

They have great burgers but sometimes the service is lacking. The food almost makes up for it but sometimes the staff isn't paying as much attention as they should be.

CONSISTENCY & QUALITY IS THE KEY TO MELVYNS..BEST BURGER IN MONROE !!! One thing that impresses me is there appears to be little or no employee turnover

I haven't been hear in years and loved the old location. The food was below average, and the staff obviously wasn't concerned about doing their job.. No wonder they were empty at noon on a Saturday!

Melvyn's is a part of the dining culture in Monroe. It is not fancy, but it is fun. The food is not great, but it is good. The décor is not classy, but it is homey and comfortable. Recently my wife and I dropped by and grabbed a booth. I had a chile burger and fries and a small pasta... More

Melvyn's is a tradition hangout that has changed little over the years. The hamburgers and fries are great, having that home cooked taste from their grill. They also have daily specials but to me it's the hamburgers that make this place special

Went in for lunch. Had the Mega burger and was very pleased with the taste, size and bun. I tasted just like I cooked it on my grill at home. Fries are good skin on with sea salt. Tea was ok. It's a bar and grill type location. Nothing outstanding for decor. Server was friendly. I would eat here again... More

Nice atmosphere. The positives stop there. The food was flavorless, the burger was cold, the waiter was inattentive and forgot parts of the order, and worst of all, after the kitchen staff placed our plates on the bar the waiter stacked them, meaning whatever was on the bar was now on three of our four meals. Draft beer machine also... More

We go to this little "hole in the wall" restaurant quite often. It is one of the best "super" casual places in the area . I have had the bugers which are really good along with the ribeye steak. But to me the best this place has to offer is the hamburger steak. It is stuffed with onions and cheeses... More
